WEST ORANGE, NJ--(Marketwire - January 10, 2008) - DMG Consulting LLC, the leading provider of contact center and real-time analytics research, market analysis and business strategy, operations and technology consulting services, has published the "2008 Contact Center Workforce Management Market Report," the industry's most comprehensive and timely guide to the essential and evolving contact center workforce management market, products and vendors.

DMG Consulting reports that the contact center workforce management (WFM) market grew at a rapid rate of 15% in 2007, driven by technical and functional innovations, as well as increased investments in sales and marketing initiatives that drove WFM upgrades and replacements in complex multi-site, multi-channel contact centers. The market has also seen increased interest in the under-penetrated and under-served mid-sized contact center segment. DMG Consulting forecasts that 2008 will be the best year in the history of the WFM market, with an expected 20% growth rate.

"Workforce management is one of the most important productivity tools in the contact center," said Donna Fluss, founder and president of DMG Consulting. "The requirement to provide a better customer experience while improving productivity and controlling costs is paramount in contact centers. The new generation of WFM solutions can help contact centers address these goals effectively, and we believe that vendors need to continue to invest significantly in sales and marketing to increase awareness of WFM's benefits. Ongoing and strong R&D will also help the market continue to grow, as it will speed up the pace of innovation, product enhancements and the product replacement cycle."
