DMG Consulting LLC, a leading provider of contact center, back-office and real-time analytics market research and consulting services, today released its 2018 – 2019 Workforce Management Product and Market Report. DMG’s eleventh  annual report on workforce management (WFM) delivers an incisive and comprehensive analysis of vendors, products, pricing and best practices for this IT sector. The 416-page Report is designed to help organizations select the right solution, technology, functionality and partner to meet their existing and future front- and back-office WFM needs.

The WFM sector has never been healthier; most of the growth is from sales to contact centers, but adoption of WFM solutions is picking up in branches and back offices. The market is experiencing a major technology refresh due to the transition to the cloud and digital transformation. The strong momentum in the WFM market is encouraging vendors to make substantial investments in upgrading their platforms and functionality, but changes to the underlying architecture, data models and databases will be needed to deliver NewGen real-time adaptive solutions, which are  instrumental in the future of WFM. Besides the opportunity to transform and revolutionize WFM in contact centers, there is an even bigger opportunity to sell these solutions to back offices and branches.

DMG expects the WFM sector to continue to grow at a strong rate for a mature market. The number of WFM seats is expected to increase by 9% in 2018 and 2019, and by 10% in 2020, 2021 and 2022. “It’s been a great year for the WFM market and there is a lot more to come”, said  Donna Fluss, President of DMG Consulting. “NewGen WFM with real-time adaptive forecasting and scheduling will revolutionize the world of workforce management.”

The 2018 – 2019 Workforce Management Product and Market Report provides an in-depth analysis of the contact center WFM market, the competitive landscape, product suites, technology and innovation. It analyzes the service, business and management trends that are redefining staffing paradigms, management practices, and how enterprises and their contact centers view and interact with their customers, prospects and employees. This Report provides an analysis of WFM market activity as well as 5-year market projections. It also explores back-office and branch WFM opportunities and applications. Seven leading and contending vendors are featured in the Report: Aspect, Calabrio, Genesys, NICE, Teleopti and Verint. Intradiem is covered at a higher level.
