Fusion BPO, a multichannel and multilingual contact center services provider, will also leverage NICE’s WFM solution to generate and allow employees to select schedules suited to their needs, enhancing employee engagement and driving higher levels of service to customers. Moving to the cloud with NICE allows Fusion to optimize uptime and monitoring, support internal innovation via the latest software versions and adapt to changes in an agile way, all while lowering total cost of ownership (TCO).
Mr. Pankaj Dhanuka, CEO of Fusion BPO Services, said, “Onboarding NICE WFM in the cloud into Fusion’s ecosystem is a huge step towards our future goals. Its AI-driven capabilities will help us increase productivity, customer retention and reduce the cost for our clients. In an age where digital solutions are the need of the hour, this is a step in the right direction.”
NICE WFM’s AI-based smart forecasting capabilities precisely predict volumes and demand depending on the historical data of the customer. This enables Fusion BPO to meet their customer’s workforce needs in terms of quantity and skill set. Using machine learning, the NICE solution generates schedules that positively impact attrition and shrinkage while taking into account employee availability and personal preferences. The solution also allows employees to suggest scheduling preferences such as break durations and working hours. With increased forecasting accuracy and intelligent scheduling, NICE WFM improves efficiency, employee engagement, quality of service and customer loyalty while reducing overall costs for Fusion BPO and its customers.
