LiveVox Announces Workforce Management Solution to Address Today’s Biggest Challenges in the Contact Center

The cutting-edge, simplified approach to workforce management will enhance LiveVox’s CCaaS offering, creating a comprehensive, one-stop platform for its customers

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- LiveVox Holdings, Inc. (“LiveVox” or the “Company”), a leading cloud-based provider of customer service and digital engagement tools, has announced LiveVox WFM. In today’s challenging environment, particularly with the rise in remote work due to the pandemic, running a contact center efficiently while keeping customers and agents happy presents many challenges. LiveVox’s new WFM offering – including the new LiveVox WFM mobile app – gives managers and agents the tools needed to overcome these challenges, including:

  • Demanding customers and an unpredictable environment. Today’s customers expect to be able to contact companies on demand, at any time, and their tolerance for long wait times has never been lower. Ensuring that you have the right agents ready at the right time and on the right channels to resolve customer issues promptly is an ongoing challenge. Without the ability to forecast, schedule, and report on staffing intelligently, contact center managers will face inevitable setbacks.
  • Growing agent expectations around how they’re managed. Generational changes and shifting workplace dynamics mean that agents now expect to have greater input into, and control over, how and when they work. Without the right technology and approach, contact centers may face challenges around agent performance, engagement, and retention.
  • A more dispersed workforce than ever. While remote work has been a growing trend for some time, 2020 required contact centers to rapidly and drastically adapt to remote agents. The pre-existing shift to remote work has rapidly accelerated and, pandemic or not, unless organizations are equipped with the right communication tools they will struggle to foster an agile, dynamic, and collaborative environment.

“Managing agent and customer expectations has been a growing challenge for organizations for the last couple of years, as both cohorts have demanded more control and personalization,” said LiveVox CEO Louis Summe. “However, these challenges have been amplified by the rapid acceleration in remote work. These factors have caused contact centers to seek new, and increasingly automated, solutions. Today’s contact center needs an AI-assisted and flexible technology. A need that LiveVox WFM and our out-of-the-box AI-enabled solutions address.”

LiveVox WFM’s key capabilities include:

  • Agent Scheduling. Fast and accurate schedule optimization for fixed, floating, and rotating schedules.
  • Forecasting. Includes skill-based omnichannel forecasting and user-definable data selection with the ability to include spreadsheet data into forecasts.
  • Automated Schedule Adjustment Plans. An on-demand toolkit that enables analysts to create, save, and re-use an unlimited number of customizable adjustment strategies.
  • Communication Framework. A powerful, integrated messaging framework allows the whole team to interact across five distinct bi-directional communications channels.
  • Automated Schedule Attendance Monitor. Integrated with the agent mobile app, provides an automated and streamlined approach to track agent attendance.
  • Reporting. A full set of reports providing the KPIs needed for efficient WFM execution.

To further illustrate the capabilities LiveVox will be able to provide their customers through this capability, a financial services company with 850 contact center agents is seeking to automate processes, increase agent productivity, and better serve its customers with LiveVox WFM. “This is the most user friendly WFM platform we have ever used without sacrificing full functionality for the enterprise. The transition was smooth and painless,” a manager at the contact center said.
