Golam Rabbani, Performance Manager at National Express, explained, "We looked at several web-based WFM applications and sought recommendations for a new software solution. The feedback on Teleopti WFM was very positive. It has already proven beneficial by enabling us to speed up the scheduling process and build forecasts based on actual call data.
"The biggest difference since using Teleopti WFM is that our staff can see their own shifts on their mobile devices, using Teleopti MyTime. Employees can request shift changes easily without having to get managers involved. Plus as a cloud-based solution it gives us the ability to accommodate peaks in demand by allowing us to contact people if remote working is required."
Nick Smith, UK Business Manager at Teleopti concluded, "For companies like National Express where the contact center is the hub of operations, a high degree of flexibility is required to ensure staff availability to respond to customer demand.
