NICE Launches its New Version of NICE Workforce Management Solution to Improve Productivity and Operational Efficiency across the Enterprise

Latest release of WFM solution further improves synergy and time savings, lowers TCO and features better usability for managing time off

​May 24th, 2016​

Paramus, New Jersey, May 24, 2016 – NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced the latest release of NICE WFM, which provides tighter integration with other NICE solutions for improved synergy, security, time savings and lower total cost of ownership.

Enhanced usability for managing time off increases accuracy particularly in today’s flexible environments where agents’ days off and day lengths vary. This also benefits the back office by ensuring more consistent handle time times. These capabilities, together with the following new features, significantly improve productivity and operational efficiency across the organization.​

  • Increased granularity for Time-Off Manager — Agents and supervisors can now request and manage time off according to hours, instead of days, providing a more practical solution for today’s scheduling needs
  • Greater capabilities with Work Journal — Employees and supervisors can enter in bulk the amount of work completed per day to quantify work volume for “off-desktop” type activities, and entered history can be used downstream for forecasting and scheduling
  • New time standards for forecasting — Administrators can enter a “standard” value once and use it for all future forecasts. They can set a day of week or time of day which is very useful when handle data is not easily retrievable from various customer systems
  • Improved long-range planning with Employee Engagement Manager — Agents and users will enjoy an enhanced UI and the new API’s tighter integration for long-range planning.
