Hybrid WFO solution supports leading legacy telephony platforms on the award-winning CXone cloud customer experience platform

Salt Lake City, May 1, 2018 – NICE inContact, a NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) business, today announced availability of the NICE inContact CXone Workforce Optimization (WFO) Pro suite for contact centers on traditional on-premises telephony platforms. Now organizations can take their first step to the cloud while integrating with their current investments across over 40 PBXs and ACD recording configurations on leading platforms. CXone WFO Pro is part of the award-winning CXone Cloud Customer Experience Platform that also includes Omnichannel Routing, Analytics, Automation and AI—all built on an Open Cloud Foundation.

CXone Workforce Optimization Pro unlocks the potential of your team to deliver exceptional customer experience and empowers contact center leaders to improve employee engagement and productivity.  As a modern cloud suite, designed from the ground up to provide a unified experience for agents and supervisors, contact center leaders can significantly accelerate the time to get new agents productive and reduce turnover.  The intuitive, cloud native suite can be quickly deployed with pre-built integrations to on-premises telephony – all backed by the highest level of security and reliability.  Highlights of the CXone WFO Pro Suite include:

  • NICE inContact CXone Workforce Management (WFM) Pro helps you reduce labor waste and achieve your goals with patented technology producing the industry’s most efficient and actionable schedules. With patented forecasting algorithms, organizations will benefit from a variety of forecasting options to meet their business needs.
  • NICE inContact CXone Quality Management (QM) Pro helps operations leaders to target employee coaching and feedback to improve customer experience. Using an agent-centric approach to quality such as agent self-evaluations, automated feedback and work flows – CXone Quality Management lets managers effectively balance between operational improvements and agent empowerment.

When deployed as a hybrid solution with on-premises ACDs and telephony, NICE inContact CXone WFO Pro allows contact centers to transition to the cloud gradually, while still capitalizing on their existing on-premises infrastructure. To maximize the economic life of on-premises investments, CXone WFO Pro leverages a contact center’s existing premise telephony architecture in a bandwidth friendly solution that maintains voice and screen recordings inside the contact center’s network, under their control. For contact centers that must comply with data residency rules requiring them to keep recorded media onsite, CXone WFO Pro enables contact centers to record and store calls and digital interactions on-premises, while taking advantage of modern WFO applications in the cloud.

Flexible deployment options with NICE inContact CXone empowers contact centers to take the path to the cloud that makes the most sense for their business today – or in the future.  Organizations have the option to maintain CXone WFO Pro in the cloud integrated with on-premises telephony, incrementally add new capabilities like analytics in the cloud, or fully transition their entire contact center platform to the cloud.

Chris Morrissey, Vice President, NICE WFO and SMB said: “NICE inContact CXone WFO Pro is transforming the industry. CXone is the customer experience platform for the future. Via the launch of this new solution for on-premise contact centers, NICE is proud to continue fulfilling its commitment to helping contact centers to transition to the cloud. We are thrilled to bring the CXone experience to leading legacy telephony platforms! CXone WFO Pro truly empowers contact centers to work smarter and respond faster in a modern, dynamic environment — and now provides all contact centers with a seamless path to ‘full cloud’ when their operations are ready.”
