Stefanini Improves Planning Capabilities and Efficiency With Aspect Software Workforce Management Solution

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwired - October 13, 2014) - Aspect Software, a leading provider of fully-integrated customer interaction management, workforce optimization, back-office and award-winning cloud solutions, today announced that Stefanini, a global IT services company specializing in IT infrastructure outsourcing and onsite managed services for global clients, has implemented Aspect's leading Workforce Management solution to enhance the customer's experience.

Brazil-based Stefanini offers worldwide support services to medium-sized and large companies leveraging its global network of onshore, offshore and near shore delivery centers. Thanks to the vast variety of languages in which the services are offered, large multinational businesses rely on the IT outsourcing services provided by the company. Stefanini's existing Workforce Management (WFM) platform needed upgrading, and this was the perfect time for Stefanini to look for a multi-lingual platform that was well-integrated with the already existing Aspect contact center platform and other customer contact solutions. Aspect's WFM platform was identified as the best proposition for Stefanini's specific and demanding business requirements.

"Customer Interaction Group helps companies and organizations improve their customer contact. We implemented Aspect WFM at Stefanini because they have already used Aspect customer engagement solutions for many years. Workforce Management plays an important role to optimize the service and the business processes. The accurate planning for the right employee to help the customer solve his problem is important. The choice for the Aspect WFM solution was a logical step that allows them to bring their customer service to an ultimate level," says Hanjo Huizing, CEO of Customer Interaction Group.

The implementation of Aspect WFM has enabled the company to make an efficiency boost in customer service and to realize significant cost-savings. Both the Aspect contact center solution as well as the Workforce Management software is delivered by Aspect's partner, the Customer Interaction Group.

"We are delighted that Stefanini has chosen the WFM solution from Aspect," comments Ruud Loppies, Director Benelux and Denmark at Aspect Software. "By using this technology, the company benefits from detailed employee schedule planning that perfectly fits into the customer demands. Having the right agent available at the right time who helps customers in the right way increases customer experience and loyalty." He adds: "Stefanini's renewed choice of Aspect underlines the trust that Aspect has built with Stefanini during the long lasting relationship and the value that the company has derived from the Aspect solutions."

For Stefanini, as a service-oriented company, it is important to realize a first-class customer experience. By helping its customers in a smooth and swift way, it keeps up with their high quality expectations. The Aspect WFM software links the right people to the right customers at the right time automatically. In order to enhance the agents' capabilities to effectively and correctly handle customer contacts, the system provides just-in-time and targeted training, with high level and consistent customer service as a result.

For easy and transparent planning of the employee schedules, Customer Interaction Group has implemented Aspect Workforce Management software. Stéphane Olmanst, Senior Director of IT Infrastructure & Telecommunications at Stefanini comments: "Our choice for the WFM solution by Aspect was clear. It saves us a lot of time and we are now able to plan much more accurately than ever before. Moreover, agents can change their schedules from any location they want. This, in fact, offers a lot more freedom to our employees. We have worked with Aspect and Customer Interaction Group for years. They do have a lot of expertise in the domain of customer services and its optimization. And, again, their recommendations have proven to be invaluable."
