London, England: injixo is running a comprehensive study of WFM professionals to reveal how today’s contact centres compare in the practices they use across the planning cycle, the channels they plan for, the KPIs they use, the size of the planning team and many other parameters. The survey is not limited to users of injixo WFM, it is open to planning professionals in all industries and users of all software tools, even spreadsheets.
"With our 2018 WFM Benchmark Study we would like to uncover what's really going on in WFM and the UK contact centre landscape. With a comprehensive survey tailored to WFM professionals, we aim to reveal common practices and relevant performance benchmarks in contact centre planning today" says Lara Klinkenberg, Inbound Marketing Manager at injixo.
“Talking to planning professionals, we have found an information gap in the WFM market. There are little up-to-date facts and figures about typical forecast accuracy, adoption of omnichannel planning or even the ratio of planners to agents. We decided to fill this gap by launching a survey and inviting planning practitioners to contribute. We will share the results openly later in the year, but contributors will get the analysis the moment it is published”.
They survey was developed with the help of internal and external WFM experts and experienced planning professionals with a track-record and background in the contact centre industry.
The results of the survey will enable readers to get valuable insights into the current state of Workforce Management operations in UK-based contact centres. It will also help WFM professionals to benchmark their performance with their industry peers and identify areas for improvement.
The survey is divided into multiple categories, including
- Realtime management
- MI and Reporting
- Employee engagement
