Managing sickness more efficiently already justifies our investment in WFM Buddy
This customer is running a Genesys Engage contact center the size of 3000+ agent seats, including multiple separate Business Units and including multiple locations in a single country.
Objective for this customer was to:
Also the process for agents to report sick/recovery was time-consuming for both supervisors and planners: apart from the time it takes for to administer sickness/recovery, the lead time between agents reporting sick and the planner notifying the impact to coverage was taking too long (problem: acting too late on intra-day changes)
WFM Buddy provides the agents with a smartphone app that allows them to verify their schedules anytime and anywhere. Agents can – for example - submit their working preferences, time-off requests and can easily trade shifts with their colleagues. When sick or recovered, agents can update their status via WFM Buddy, which will automatically be updated in Genesys WFM and be notified to supervisors and planners.
