Enhanced Services Methodology from Witness Systems Drives Customer Success in Deploying Workforce Optimization Software.
ATLANTA -- Witness Systems (NADASQ: WITS), a leading global provider of workforce optimization software and services, today announced that its enhanced, structured services methodology is providing contact center, branch and back-office enterprise operations with a proven framework for getting maximum value from their unified Impact 360[TM] workforce optimization (WFO) software.
Typically, software implementations are characterized by escalating budgets, project overruns and often unmet expectations. The Witness Services Network instead offers the successful delivery of customer support services through its experienced team of technology and business professionals. Its structured, yet flexible, implementation approach enables customers to gain maximum benefit by making full use of the powerful capabilities and business integrations uniquely offered through Impact 360. By aligning business strategies, group and organization goals, and metrics to optimize operational efficiency, the implementation of Impact 360 accelerates time-to-use and demonstrates true business value as customers deploy the software solutions.
With its proven methodology, single and multi-site organizations report measurable advances and rapid time to production - allowing them to get the most from their software investments and providing a pathway to extended WFO functionality and processes for further optimizing their workforces. The Witness Services Network offers an extensive array of documentation, implementation, information and project management tools that focus on mapping Impact 360 to contact center and enterprise business drivers and processes. The methodology provides templates designed for WFO and such major functional areas as customer surveys, and forecasting and scheduling, as well as processes related to training, quality assurance, reporting and other parts of the customer service value chain. This framework enables a customer-centric business strategy by which companies can enhance flexibility and responsiveness, break down barriers between functional departments and streamline processes.
"Customers receive maximum business value throughout the process based on our effective tuning and business consultation that's available during every step in the process," said Phil Dawes, senior vice president, global operations, Witness Systems. "Our approach to services has always allowed customers to plan ahead for systems deployment and enhancement, learn and apply best practices for operating and maintaining Impact 360 software, and refine and/or calibrate solutions to achieve extended business value. Furthering the methodology enables them to better align internal resources appropriately and provides a wide range of services that focus specifically on people, processes and technology - helping build competitive advantage and support workforce optimization business processes."
Customers Achieve Benefits with Enhanced Services Metholology
A customer service management provider recently worked with the Witness Services Network during its implementation of Impact 360 Workforce Optimization across six international sites. The company had an urgency to get the solution up and running to meet the needs of a large client. Creating a successful environment for all, Witness Systems provided a smooth transition across multiple sites from sales to services to support, allowing the customer to experience the real impact of its software investment from the beginning.
In the case of another customer, a leading pharmaceutical company, implementing Impact 360 Workforce Optimization across its multi-site operations has proved to be a methodical process. The company reports that the Witness Services Network's approach to implementation enabled it to get its multiple sites into production quickly and successfully. After extending its deployment to leverage the benefits associated with the unified Impact 360 workforce optimization platform, the company says that Witness Systems' technology helped improve its overall quality in dispensing pharmacies and call centers across the country. It reinforces that there is no room for error in the pharmaceutical industry and that is the very reason it relies on Witness Systems. Using Impact 360, it can effectively track order entry accuracy and identify potential issues early in the prescription dispensing process.
