What is a Workforce Management Solution?
Workforce Management (WFM) is a specialized enterprise process to optimize employee productivity. The tools and technologies that help to achieve employee productivity are banded together as WFM solutions.
WFM is a narrowed-down specialization of Human Resource Management (HRM). Generically putting into the modern context, all WFM solutions are part of an HR Tech stack.
A WFM solution optimizes employee productivity by enabling HR Tech users to manage these functions –
- Employee Communications
- Meeting and Video Conference Management
- Forecasting and budgeting
- Staff scheduling
- Time and attendance
- Employee performance management
- Payroll, Compensation, and Benefits administration
- Leave Management
Tymeshift makes Agent Management easy with a virtual conflict-free experience across Omnichannel platforms. A unique feature – Talk+ enables Tymeshift’s alignment with Zendesk Talk through automation, tracking, and data syncing between the platforms.
The tool also connects with other messaging platforms such as Slack.
