National Residential Alarm Monitoring Organization Leverages Impact 360 Solution to Enhance the Customer Experience

DALLAS, TEXAS and MELVILLE, NY, May 20, 2008 – Monitronics, one of the nation’s largest providers of residential alarm monitoring, announced today its deployment of the Impact 360® Workforce Management solution from Verint Systems Inc. and its Verint® Witness Actionable Solutions™ business line.  Focused on providing optimal customer service and support to its more than half a million customers, Monitronics conducted an extensive evaluation, selecting Impact 360 based on the company’s solid reputation and product quality.  It was determined that the software’s ability to help improve the efficiency and productivity of call center employees and processes would enable Monitronics to meet its business needs in the most flexible way.

“The key components to successfully implementing a workforce management strategy are the ability to measure, monitor and manage the performance of all agents equally,” says Mike Haislip, President and CEO at Monitronics.  “Shift scheduling and workforce management tools allow our call center managers and supervisors to achieve these objectives.”  

“With Impact 360 Workforce Management, our call center team can better forecast, and develop more accurate planning and improved scheduling.  The additional data helps us staff the right number of agents, with the right skills at all times.”  Haislip adds, “We see great value in the data collection and reporting capabilities offered by Impact 360, and look forward to further synchronizing our performance optimization initiatives to achieve our revenue and service objectives.”

Monitronics handles inbound and outbound customer service, sales and technical support in its 450 seat Dallas-based call center.  The Impact 360 software allows Monitronics to staff each department properly and leverage performance management scorecards, both of which improve its service delivery and ability to meet or exceed customer expectations.  The company also is focused on operational efficiencies, process enhancements and staff performance through the agent adherence capabilities within the solution.  Further, Monitronics call center supervisors are leveraging Impact 360 Workforce Management to assist in scheduling agents during peak call times, leading to better call handling, lower call abandonment, higher service levels, increased revenue and improved customer satisfaction. 

“Before having access to the full capabilities provided by Impact 360, we experienced higher handle times than we’d like.  In part, this was due to not having an adherence view of our agents and a real-time tool to assist in the balance of calls and agents,” says John Mejia, Vice President Monitronics, Customer Care.  “With our new workforce management solution, we’ve changed the way we forecast and allocate our time to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations.”

    111debiGreat leaders cratee great leaders. They are as concerned about the success of others as they are their own success. They do not use their power as an agenda for selfish gain, but because of the influence they have over others and because of their leadership style, they are the truly Great Leaders. Ken states Great leaders are great because their people trust and respect them, not because they have power.” He affirmed my favorite quote, People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. http://jnbtgqj.com [url=http://bvqepepfi.com]bvqepepfi[/url] [link=http://zbabcs.com]zbabcs[/link]

I wish Geology was my first. I couldn't be happier that I ended up learning it.. Going to school for Geology is the best decision I've EVER made.. Fell in love with it immediately

    The management will cater in a hlaidoy dinner for the employees. Some segments of our project will be treated to additional dinner out and/or time off from work (generally half a day off with pay). Some (not all) also receive Christmas bonuses. My segment received a bonus of a sort; a reimbursement of 1.5 months of health care premiums. http://hgsmqv.com [url=http://tmzemi.com]tmzemi[/url] [link=http://qctyzzp.com]qctyzzp[/link]
