Having the right workflow and workforce management capabilities in place can significantly improve your business performance and productivity in the back office, especially when combined together.
Workforce management takes care of your people (or robots) and aims to improve productivity and performance from the human perspective by placing the correctly skilled people in the right place at the right time.
Workflow consists of orchestrated and repeatable patterns of business activity, whereas workforce management is an institutional process that maximises resource performance and competency for an organisation.
Explained simply, workflow manages your processes and projects, it improves productivity from the perspective of the work itself by defining tasks, splitting them into manageable chunks, and allocating them to individuals and teams.
When the two capabilities are implemented harmoniously, the effect can be truly transformative for a business.
Workforce management is about managing the people in the context of the work they’ll be doing. It deals with; the who as well as the how.
Back Office WFM systems provide operational intelligence on:
In this way, a workforce management system can be used to identify where there are major resource or skill shortages, surpluses or system bottlenecks, and consequently plan, schedule and forecast the right agents to fulfill business needs.
It is a great way of spotting areas of the organisation that need re-engineering and building a business case for getting it done.
Workflow management is interested in gathering information about service demand and the processes used in the delivery of that service, in order to automate the process flow where possible, and track cases through sequential or parallel activities.
Today, a workflow is a joint effort between Operations and the IT department. Developed in-house, it involves a great deal of business analysis followed by a development stage, (changing core business systems), and then implementing a test phase which will involve technical and end-user acceptance criteria.
Part of the difference between workforce management and workflow solutions is the level of detail and the way the two systems look at handling workload.
Workforce management understands people and processes and is often looking at higher-level tasks and the bigger picture. Workflow systems, on the other hand, tend to provide information based on activities at a granular level, such as the number of new cases per process being started, and can often report on the completion of each activity by individuals. However, in isolation, they often lack the visibility of resourcing these tasks.
It is clear that both workflow and workforce management solutions are important in a back-office environment where work volumes are high with numerous complex processes involved.
