24-7 Intouch effectively balances workforce management (WFM) within our contact centers to ensure optimal agent staffing levels that maintain high quality while minimizing costs. Our Workforce Managers understand every single client account, and allocate the necessary resources for the specified work required.
For each unique case at 24-7 Intouch, expected workloads are accurately forecasted on a day-to-day and even minute-by-minute basis. If a call center cannot anticipate call volume to a specific level, then over and under staffing will occur. This results in either additional cost to the company due to extra staffing, or inferior service due to understaffing, translating into customer dissatisfaction. When choosing an outsourcing partner it is important that your contact center can manage scheduling to a specific level of detail, while simultaneously balancing your support costs and your customers’ experience.
24-7 Intouch understands the sensitive nature of contact center scheduling and employs detailed WFM practice methodologies and advanced WFM technology to achieve required agent occupancy rates and consistent levels of customer service, while simultaneously controlling costs.
