NICE Launches Employee Engagement Manager for Greater Scheduling Agility and Employee Satisfaction

 NICE Systems (NASDAQ: NICE) today announced the launch of Employee Engagement Manager, a new Workforce Management (WFM) capability that allows both employees and managers to control scheduling in real-time based on actual demand. This added scheduling agility also enables organizations to promptly address unexpected events, helping to optimize staffing levels at all times.

The solution, which leverages WorkFlex’s technology, offers benefits across the organization. It is available via mobile app, allowing managers complete visibility while on-the-go and giving employees access to their schedules even when away from the office.

Managers can optimize team performance through a mobile-tablet optimized dashboard that provides real-time access to KPIs and schedule change visibility and control. The Manager Suite includes:

  • Business rules management
  • Alert management (operational KPIs; employee KPIs; schedule event notifications; real-time adherence; skill coverage)
  • Real-time monitoring
  • Dashboard
  • Reports

Employees can instantly change their schedules anywhere, anytime using an intelligent mobile app to respond to a call to action, or to proactively participate in keeping their schedules up-to-date with changes. The Employee Suite includes:

  • Preferences (DND; contact; VTO, OT)
  • Schedule modifications
  • At-home employee segment self-assignment
  • Shift trade
  • Absence requests
  • Time swap

Miki Migdal, President, NICE Enterprise Product Group
“This solution gives NICE WFM users access to what we believe are unprecedented scheduling agility capabilities.

Larry Schwartz, CEO, WorkFlex Solutions
