Here are the names of two vendors who provide software solutions to manage call center workstation utilization...
1. Authority Software offers a product called Central Authority that provides real-time capacity management. It allows users to set up a "forecast" of seat totals and desired occupancy rates. It derives actual usage data to interactively measure and track this information.
2. Lanner offers an application that reads daily team member and call center agent shift pattern data directly from the workforce management system. It then generates seating plans for a day or week at a time. It also specifies desk/floor layouts, identifies which desks are not available at certain times of the day or week and indicates service/desk requirements (specialized equipment available at certain desks only).
