Staffing effectively in mission-critical and 24x7 environments translates into a need to understand call volume trends and manage multiple shifts, posing a challenge for even the most experienced manager. Until now, public safety operations have relied on manual and time-consuming staff scheduling methods that often lack the ability to leverage historical call volume patterns, telecommunicator skills and available hours and workload requirements.
To counter these very real challenges, Verint has added new functionality to Impact 360 for Public Safety that automates workforce forecasting and scheduling, and introduces capabilities that enable monitoring schedule adherence in real time. Helping emergency communications and dispatch center management plan and appropriately staff to meet their workloads and requirements, the Verint solution can produce optimal schedules by balancing defined shift rules, work patterns, breaks, off-phone times, and individual skills, proficiencies and preferences.
Other enhancements include intra-day management capabilities that provide visibility into operational metrics, enabling managers to track and compare actual and forecasted volume and performance against plan and/or forecasts; assess trends and historical data; identify and proactively resolve variations to plan; and take appropriate and rapid action in routine, as well as unanticipated emergency and disaster situations. Impact 360 for Public Safety now also automates such routine tasks as time off management and shift swapping, and includes out-of-the-box reports that provide managers with insight into individual and group performance and the ability to perform activity analysis.
