Verint Enables Customers to Optimize Customer Engagement Enterprise-Wide
|By Business Wire
|May 21, 2014 08:31 AM EDT
Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: VRNT) today announced that customers are
finding innovative techniques to optimize customer engagement using the
company’s software and services for back-office
operations. For example, in the insurance, banking and healthcare
industries, greater insight into employee activity is helping balance
workloads and optimize resources to increase processing and throughput.
These organizations are also benefitting from simplified and centralized
administration and maintenance, as well as lower total cost of ownership.
Verint uses the term “back-office” to represent the part of a company
that performs non-customer facing administrative, processing and
operations activities that impact customer engagement. These areas
include payment processing, new account set up, claims, research, order
fulfillment and more. Errors and inefficiencies in these types of
transactions can result in additional calls in a company’s contact
center, repeat work for back-office departments and dissatisfied
customers—all of which translate into added costs to an organization.
Associates report1 cites that “Verint was the first of
the WFO [workforce optimization] suite vendors to specifically target
back-office and vertical market opportunities. What’s special about
Verint’s workforce management solution is it addresses all contact
center markets as well as back office and retail bank branch
opportunities. The advanced version incorporates performance management
and eLearning to optimize schedule adherence and time utilization.”
As forward-thinking companies focus on back-office operations as part of
their broader customer engagement initiatives, Verint is seeing workforce
optimization and other customer
service solutions—including volume and data capture, capacity
modeling, case management, work item tracking, knowledge management,
forecasting and scheduling, strategic planning, application analysis,
process analysis, eLearning/lesson management, and performance
management—more prevalent in these departments. A DMG Consulting report
reveals that “Workforce Management software remains the most important
productivity tool in many contact centers, and is expected to find a
similar position in the back office.”2
“Back-office managers are under tremendous pressure to improve
productivity, cut costs, optimize employee utilization, and reduce risk,
while at the same time, improving the customer experience,” says Donna
Fluss, president, DMG
For example, a leading international insurance organization serving
millions of customers across commercial and institutional organizations,
as well as individuals, recently deployed Verint Back-Office
Operations—including workforce management, performance management and
advanced desktop analytics—across multiple sites and thousands of seats
as part of a corporate-wide operational excellence and cost reduction
program. The aim was to create a global, standardized framework to unify
the insurance company’s businesses and take advantage of economies of
scale via one shared services support group.
“Companies are finding that by leveraging Verint’s technology in
back-office environments, they are able to help eliminate inefficiencies
that can cost millions of dollars in the first year alone, while at the
same time improving customer engagement,” says Nancy Treaster, senior
vice president and general manager, strategic operations, Verint

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
