News : Thomas Cook Deploys Cloud-Based NICE Workforce Management Solution
Ra'anana, Israel, April 27, 2015 -- NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) announced that Thomas Cook has migrated its NICE Workforce Management (WFM) solution to the cloud. This deployment model provides greater flexibility and lower total cost of ownership, and is helping Thomas Cook be more responsive and competitive.
The migration to the cloud gives the company a single view across its UK-based operation, enabling it to more efficiently forecast and schedule agents across all of its contact centers and retail stores. With NICE IEX WFM deployed in both contact centers and retail locations, the organization can take advantage of the availability of retail staff to support the contact center - routing calls to individuals with the right skills and knowledge to handle customer queries.
