Introducing improved workforce management features for all regions

Improved workforce management features are now available for all regions. Designed to meet the needs of larger, more complex, international customers, the improved features deliver advanced, powerful, and easy-to-use forecasting and scheduling capabilities. Business units and planning groups can enable forecasting and scheduling across multiple management units that share queues, while retaining management unit level permissions. Service goal templates help managers assign service goals to similar groups. Forecasting and scheduling enhancements allow organizations to plan up to six weeks ahead. Multi-week scheduling constraints enable customers to build work plans that adhere to international labor laws and worker agreements. Genesys performs the migration automatically, with no existing customer configuration changes.
