Call Center Scheduling Solutions
Call Center scheduling is critical for meeting your service levels while controlling agent costs. 60% to 80% off ongoing call center expenses are related to staffing. Having the optimum number of agents at the right time with the right skills, in the right place is essential to call center success and profitability. Despite this fact, many contact centers still use spreadsheets and other manual tools to manage their agent schedules. These sub-optimal schedules often result in overstaffing, lower agent productivity and higher shrinkage. The resulting costs can add up to $30,000 to $50,000 per year for call centers with as few as 25 agents. Monet Software helps you solve this challenge by automating key tasks that have an immediate impact on your bottom line through more accurate call volume forecasting, staffing calculations and scheduling and daily performance tracking.
