Calabrio Unveils New Platform for a New Era of Workforce and Customer Engagement
First-ever virtual Calabrio customer conference showcases cloud-based WEM platform designed for the modern, agile contact center
Calabrio, the customer experience intelligence company, unveils the new Calabrio ONE workforce engagement management (WEM) suite at its first-ever virtual Calabrio Customer Connect (C3) conference, October 27-28, 2020.
“2020 has, of course, spawned many changes. One impactful shift is that customers value different things and make different decisions accordingly”
The new Calabrio ONE is a cloud-based WEM platform designed to meet the performance, agility and engagement demands of the modern contact center in the new era of work and customer experience.
The pandemic has shifted the world of work and elevated the importance of agility in the contact center via employee empowerment tools, intelligent workflows and automation, and visibility into agent-customer interactions through data-driven insights. With last year’s acquisition of Teleopti, Calabrio pledged to bring the two leading workforce management (WFM) offerings together under one unified WFM product. Calabrio delivers on this promise with the new Calabrio WFM – with the best of both products at its core – resulting in a fully integrated WEM suite poised to help customers accelerate change.
“Calabrio ONE is designed for the modern contact center, and part of that is having the agility to meet the moment – whenever that moment may come,” said Matt Matsui, Calabrio’s chief product officer. “Right now, it’s working from home and the impact from the pandemic. Tomorrow, it will be something else, and working from home will turn into working from anywhere; our agents will become free agents. But whatever the next challenge is, Calabrio’s goal is to provide a flexible platform that can quickly adapt to change. We’re proud that the new Calabrio ONE will help customers tackle their unique needs of the day and set them up for the future.”
As an agent-centric platform, Calabrio ONE empowers at-home or office-based agents with comprehensive self-service capabilities, including the ability to self-schedule, trade shifts, book time off and find overtime – all via a mobile app. In addition, intelligent automation in a new virtual assistant continuously seeks and offers up schedule opportunities for agents.
The new product also unlocks insights for planning, performance and wider workforce engagement. Arming users with predictive analytics and powerful reporting lets them understand the “why” behind the “what” of operations to facilitate improvements to the agent and customer experience. Connecting WFM to quality management and analytics within the suite helps further analyze flagged operational issues, identify root causes and drive meaningful changes to the enterprise.
