The Elastic Workforce Management Solution
Even with highly trained agents, contact centers can experience long wait times, abandoned calls, and other poor metrics for one simple reason—there aren’t enough customer service representatives (CSRs) to meet the demands of customers.
With an elastic workforce, contact center managers can ensure metrics and service levels don’t suffer because business is booming. A modern contact center solution enables organizations to leverage a flexible workforce management model. When consumer demands are high, incorporate remote workers into your team for increased support. When inbound communication return to normal levels, use your contact center technology to reduce the number of agents.
Packet Fusion provides the most effective contact center solutions and tailored support. We start with gathering data on your business objectives to introduce you to the right elastic workforce technology. We’ll also ensure your remote workers have strong KPIs with metric analysis and customizable training.
Signs It’s Time to Transition
When the benefits of a flexible workforce match your business objectives, it’s time to make the transition to a modern contact center. Here are several indicators:
Your business has predictable times of increased demand.
If your company knows calls will spike near holidays or company events, an elastic workforce management tool can help call center operations run smoothly.
Your department needs a cost-effective way to improve metrics.
If a lack of CSRs is impacting your call center, you can add remote agents without the costs of hosting your new employees at the on-site office.
Your department needs trained agents for a back-up plan.
Contact center volumes aren’t always predictable. However, a properly trained elastic workforce creates a contingency plan to meet unexpected needs.
You need temporary support for new business initiatives.
A flexible team of CSRs gives you the needed support for product launches, new service lines, and more. When your business ventures into new waters, you can support operations without a significant investment while crafting long-term plans.

Managing Remote CSRs
When CSRs are located thousands of miles from on-site offices, it’s vital that you retain your ability to manage your remote team. With the right technology and training support, you can ensure your elastic workforce meets the standards of your business.
Continuous Agent Management
Today’s contact center technology ensures customer needs are matched with the right CSRs. And key reports—combined with insightful analysis—can determine important KPIs for each representative, even when they work remotely. From measuring wrap-up times to determining the number of rings before an agent responds, distance won’t hinder your role as a contact center manager. Find support for remote agent management.
Monitored Workgroup Performance
