Recorded Webinar: Forecasting and Scheduling on Digital Channels


More and more contact centres are implementing digital channels such as live chat, messaging apps and new social media networks.

Yet, while there is lots of helpful content about installing these channels and offering great customer service through them, there isn’t much out there in terms of WFM.

Luckily this webinar is here to save the day, as our experienced industry experts will be sharing lots of helpful tips to improve your digital forecasts and schedules.

  • Winning tip – “If you’re not already getting data to track volumes, do so ASAP. It’ll take time to establish but it means that when you NEED it, you’ve already got it setup with historical data. Otherwise your projects could be delayed by weeks or months. But remember to always question said data, where does it come from? What does X mean?” thanks to Jake8
