Aspect Software has announced the integration of Aspect Workforce Management with Amazon Connect.

The integration gives Amazon Connect users all the advantages of Aspect’s market-leading workforce management solution, including accurate labour forecasting, flexible staff scheduling, intra-day performance tracking and a wide range of insightful staffing reports.

Aspect Workforce Management (WFM), recently named the North America leader in Pelorus Associates’ 2018 Workforce Management Systems Market report, can operate with Amazon Connect as an on-premises solution, privately hosted, or on Amazon Web Services (AWS).

“The integration with Amazon Connect creates a fantastic growth opportunity for Aspect and for Aspect Workforce Management,” said Mike Bourke, SVP, Product Management, Aspect Software.

“Not only does this solution add scheduling, adherence, and an industry-recognised UI to Amazon Connect, but it can also introduce the Aspect brand to new organisations who are not familiar with the award-winning capabilities of our platform.”

Aspect’s Amazon Connect integrations extend the cloud-based contact centre functionality provided by Amazon Connect with popular services and solutions from AWS Partner Network (APN) members. They are designed to be seamless and can quickly be deployed in a few simple steps.
