Verint Enterprise Workforce Management is part of the company’s broader Customer Engagement Optimization™ portfolio and available in cloud and on-premises deployment models.

WorkFlex products are based on patented Intelligent Intraday Automation technology that enhances work-life empowerment for agents, team-effectiveness empowerment for supervisors and staffing-agility empowerment for workforce administrators. Enhanced agent empowerment capabilities include the ability to preview and select pre-approved time on, time off, flex time and shift trades with instant confirmation from anywhere, including via native apps for Apple® and Android® mobile devices. Enhanced supervisor empowerment capabilities provide the ability to manage agent time-on/time-off eligibility and monitor the status of schedule change requests from anywhere, including a mobile tablet optimized app. Enhanced workforce analyst empowerment capabilities include automated staffing variance analysis, solution identification, agent selection, alerting and schedule updating.
