Verint® Systems Inc. (NASDAQ:VRNT) today announced the availability of its Impact 360® Express for Retail Financial Services™ solution. Specifically tailored for branch banking environments, the new subscription service offering is based on the proven, patent-protected workforce optimization (WFO) software from Verint Witness Actionable Solutions®.
Impact 360 Express for Retail Financial Services is designed to enable today's small to mid-sized banks to cost-effectively achieve workforce management (WFM) benefits previously out of reach — all without the setup overhead, upfront licenses and hardware, and service expenses associated with traditional premise-based offerings. Using the solution, community banks and credit unions can benefit from the simplicity and convenience of a subscription service model for forecasting, scheduling, capability planning, system hosting and maintenance. With this structure, these organizations have the tools they need to more effectively manage their customer experiences by aligning resources to meet customer demand and service-level targets.
In addition to helping ensure the right people with the right skills are in the right place at the right time, the Impact 360 solution enables bank management to identify ways to minimize excess capacity by maximizing resources across teller and sales work functions, both within and across the branch network. It also enables branches to manage costs proactively and realize savings through better capacity planning, improved resource scheduling, and an optimized mix of full-time, part-time and/or peak-time staff.
"By introducing Impact 360 Express for Retail Financial Services as a subscription service offering, Verint has again extended its portfolio to address growing needs in the market. In doing so, small and mid-sized banks and credit unions can now reap the benefits of workforce management at an attractive price point, and at a time in which cost containment, retention and the customer experience are paramount," says Chris Zaske, vice president, back office and retail financial services, Verint Witness Actionable Solutions.
