Cost savings of 25% through optimisation

Q-Matic and Teleopti solutions combined enable customers to optimise staffing in the customer facing operations, such as; branch networks, contact centres, retail outlets etc., whilst at least maintaining service levels and thereby achieving an efficient workforce management. In the contact centre environment, Teleopti achieve cost savings of 25% or more through enhanced performance and workforce optimisation in contact centres, and we expect to realise the same potential in the branch network environment.
 

Q-Matic technology tracks and records vital customer data in a branch such as customer waiting times and arrival patterns and Teleopti’s technology forecasts future transaction volumes and staffing requirements to enable managers to produce optimal schedules that meet customer service level targets and improve operational efficiency.

Together Q-Matic and Teleopti will address new synergies and cost saving areas.
