What is WFO?

KPIs are the next generation of dashboards. They do not have all the features of the current Dashboards. However, they provide a simple way to quickly build a simple, responsive and mobile-friendly overview of the critical measures in your contact center. You can setup alerts on KPI metrics that will let you know when a KPI crosses a threshold. You can then act when your attention is needed, without the need to regularly check for updates.

Feedback and assessments
