Aspect Software, a leading provider of fully-integrated customer interaction management, workforce optimization, back-office and award-winning cloud solutions, today announced an aggressive campaign targeting companies using NICE and Verint workforce optimization (WFO) solutions. The program aims to attract WFO users looking to upgrade to Aspect’s sleek and modern user interface by offering an unmatched level of integration across WFO components and take advantage of the business conveniences and financial benefits of the Aspect Cloud, a global data center and telco infrastructure supporting Private Cloud, SaaS, PaaS and Managed Services portfolios.

To meet the needs of the increasingly mobile, empowered and social consumers it is critical for companies to utilize a modern, integrated workforce optimization solution like Aspect Workforce Optimization.

And it’s not an easy challenge,” says Mike Bourke, senior vice president and general manager, Workforce Optimization “Aspect Workforce Optimization not only ensures organizations have the right number of agents, with the right training, in the right places, at the right times for the best customer experience at the lowest cost, its intuitive graphical user interface offers a cloud-ready suite of best-in-class products to efficiently guide agent planning, scheduling, management, recording, surveying, coaching, eLearning and analytics.
