OnviSource OnVision Analytics Solution to Transform WFO

OnviSourceOnviSource announced a new enterprise analytics solution called OnVision, which leverages its OnviCenter suite of workforce optimization (WFO) products to deliver information and trend analysis related to customer interactions and experience across all channels and customer touch points.

The transition of WFO to this new approach, called Customer Experience Management (CXM), requires an omni-channel method to capture relevant customer experience data from every channel, including calls, emails, chats, desktop transactions, customer surveys, and social media. However, capturing 100 percent of information from all channels can produce a massive amount of data, or big data.

The OnVision omni-channel and cross-channel analytics can greatly assist managing the big data. OnVision automatically analyzes the captured data from each channel and produces channel-dependent actionable knowledge. This is followed by OnVision’s cross-channel analytics delivering channel-agnostic, unified, and cohesive actionable knowledge and trends across all channels.

“OnVision consolidates and filters customer interaction data across the entire enterprise into seamless, usable, and actionable data,” said Ray Naeini, CEO and chairman, OnviSource, Inc. “It is the next step in the evolution of workforce optimization and big data management, providing a customer centric approach to customer loyalty and improved satisfaction.”

OnviSource Solution to Unify Lifecycle of Customer Transactions

OnviSource’s Onvify, part of the company’s OnviCenter suite of Workforce Optimization and Automation (WFO-A) products, enables users to automatically, seamlessly, and in real time capture, integrate, associate, and exchange data between the OnviCenter suite of WFO solutions, Salesforce.com CRM, and various telecom products. This requires no additional efforts or modifications by the users.

Today’s enterprises are challenged in managing the lifecycle of customer transactions, originating from three sources: telecom platforms, WFO products, and CRM software. Unification can offer a holistic and enterprise-wide view of each transaction with a single point of access. As such, a CRM record can contain the data and information related to the entire lifecycle of a transaction. This data includes the start of the transaction through telecom platforms, followed by the agents’ recorded and monitored interactions, and finally the steps in processing the transaction through the CRM software.

Onvify provides users with the ability to a) define critical pieces of information required from telecom platforms (such as Avaya, Mitel, and Cisco), the OnviCenter WFO products, and Salesforce.com records. OnviSource is planning to provide similar unification capabilities with other products from CRM market leaders.
