The New Calabrio ONE: Agility for the Modern Contact Centre
A new era requires a new approach to the contact centre experience.
We have all seen our fair share of challenges this year. Everyone is adapting to a new normal, and that means contact centres must deal with increased demands for flexibility and agility. From the C-Suite, to the workforce management specialist, to the contact centre director — each member of the service team needs support to navigate this new era.
We want to provide solutions that let you prepare for whatever comes next. That’s why we are announcing the unveiling of a new Calabrio ONE — powered by the cloud with next-generation workforce management software at its centre.
The Challenges of a New Era
We are committed to helping you resolve the specific challenges of this new era. Whether you are a C-level executive looking to keep up with new innovations, a contact centre director trying to retain employees or a workforce management specialist seeking more flexibility in scheduling — we’ve designed the new Calabrio ONE just for you.
The Capabilities of a Fully Integrated Workforce Engagement Suite
You get more WFM than ever...
Forecast future results more effectively
It takes time for WFM analysts to learn the unique patterns in contact volume—the daily and seasonal ebbs and flows. Moreover, these patterns are shifting faster than ever, with emergent issues driving one-off trends that break the mold.
Pulling together data streams from across the contact centre, granular forecasting designed for the world of multichannel communications and the multi-skilled agent enables organisations to better anticipate changes and prepare.
Make employee schedules more dynamic and accessible
When the unpredictable impacts service levels, new intraday dynamic scheduling tools can adjust agent schedules in real time. These dynamic scheduling tools instantly optimise agent lunches and breaks to better align with shifts in predicted call volume.
They also enable WFM analysts to easily open up overtime opportunities to meet surging volume—and to offer voluntary time-off (VTO) during unexpected slow periods, because overstaffing can be almost as costly as understaffing.
Embrace intelligent automation
The future of workforce management is rooted in solutions that unify and simplify contact centre processes. As more data is collected there is the opportunity to, use these large data sets to drive immediate, intelligent action. Especially important with the added complexity of modern, hybrid service operations.
Increased automation and virtual assistant technology enables the operations team to achieve more, while doing less. This is all driven by real-time monitoring so that service levels and customer experience are never in jeopardy.
...and more than just WFM.
Unlock insights with integrated intelligence
The world of remote work requires more intelligence than ever. The new Calabrio ONE elevates a fully integrated workforce engagement management (WEM) solution with seamlessly embedded analytics tools across the suite. Illuminate compelling, AI-driven insights—and put them into action to enrich human interactions.
Calabrio ONE empowers every user—from the C-Suite to the contact centre agent— to gain valuable insights and make unique KPIs more accessible, more relevant and more usable.
Enhance reporting and data collection
Break down data silos and end the headaches of patching together disparate contact centre data. With Calabrio Data Management and Data Explorer, you can create a single view of your data from across the organisation.
Integrate customer interaction data from inside and outside of the contact centre—including critical data streams such as ACD, WFO, CRM, HRMS and ERP—and unify it into intelligent visualisations and dashboards that are easily accessed and shared across the enterprise for powerful decision-making.
Harmonise your disparate systems
Contact centre operations need to be more connected than ever before. In the new Calabrio ONE, quality management and the next-generation workforce management live in a unified suite of optimisation solutions. Communication between WFM and QA modules is vital in this system — it’s a mutually beneficial partnership.
Check out some use cases that show how you can connect QA and WFM to improve the contact centre experience.
“We cannot wait! Peckham has been on Calabrio Teleopti WFM Platform for just over 3 years now and just over a year ago, we purchased Calabrio Analytics (just prior to the acquisition announcement). As a customer utilising each platform, we were very excited to see that Calabrio is taking the best of each platform to give birth to the next-gen WFO platform! We feel this will only enhance our goals.”
“I am very excited for all that the new, integrated Calabrio WFM platform will have. It’s difficult to narrow it down. But I can see great uses for the new intraday management and real-time adherence features. The increased detail and control we will have as we more specifically configure the system to our needs – that I can’t wait for!”
“We are very excited about the features in the new Calabrio WFM. Among some of the features that will help us be more productive while providing agents the views into their service queue and team staffing–a much-requested item–are more granular forecasting, advanced permissions, and a more robust way to look at adherence. As we are a non-traditional contact centre, having the ability to create custom skills and grouping as well as filters on the fly for quick what-if analysis will be a game-changer.”
Empower, Educate and Lead the Modern Workforce
The new Calabrio ONE will be the world’s leading WEM solution centered around employee empowerment, intelligent process automation, customised reporting and AI-driven predictions. Ready to support whether workforce is at home, on-site or a hybrid mix.
Grant autonomy to your workforce
As contact centres have transitioned to remote workplaces, some employees have expressed a desire to work more, while others have certain times they cannot work. Some employees have or need more flexibility now that they are working from home, and you’ll need to address that. With self-scheduling, agents can change their lunch and break times on the day and for upcoming 7 days, with no need for manual managerial approvals.
Empowering employees with tools that allow them to have more autonomy in their schedule fosters a more flexible working environment which increases employee morale and decreases attrition, especially important when teams are missing that in-person contact.
Effectively coach and develop remote employees
Increase transparency and communication with personalised, self-service dashboards and analytics-driven results available throughout the Calabrio ONE suite. Analytics include automated voice-of-the-customer and voice-of-the-employee insights such as AI-powered sentiment analysis and predictive evaluation scores which help target agent gap areas and see those agents in need of training and from there, what kind of training is needed based on interaction insights and patterns.
It is easier for supervisors and managers to quickly spot coaching opportunities and really target training efforts to those that need it – whether it’s coaching around positive-rather-than-negative language or technical expertise that needs to be built up.
Manage work challenges from home
Within the next-generation WFM solution, real-time adherence technology monitors agent adherence to schedules and compares them with the live ACD status. Automated alarms flag up when schedules are in danger of being breached and a real-time data feed, updated in seconds. Interaction insights, live screen recording and desktop analytics from the rest of the Calabrio ONE suite allow you to quickly dig into the “why.”
Having insight into how employees are performing, no matter where they are working will both optimise management processes while also ensuring challenges are quickly addressed.
