Fast, real-time and effective communication between agents and supervisors is important for managing schedule adherence and exception planning. Monet Agent/Supervisor portal provides an efficient way for supervisors and agents to communicate through the Web-enabled employee self-service scheduling application. Agents are empowered to be more directly involved in the scheduling process by entering exceptions or bids and viewing their schedules at any time.
Improved motivation through employee empowerment
Agents feel more respected and connected by allowing them direct access to their schedules, and make it easier for them to volunteer for un-staffed shifts.
More efficient communication and processes
Supervisors simply approve or decline agent requests in the scheduling application with immediate results. This saves time usually wasted by supervisors manually updating data from email or verbal requests.
More accountability across the whole organization
Monet Agent/Supervisor portal tracks all requests, whether approved or declined. Agents can be monitored and inconsistent behavior such as turning up sick after their vacation days are declined. Supervisors can be held responsible for approved changes that left the center understaffed.
Easier and faster management of schedule changes
Agents can use Monet Agent/Supervisor portal to request changes to their schedule. These requests immediately alert the agent’s supervisor, who can review the impact of the change and approve or decline the request. If approved, the change immediately affects the schedule. Supervisors can also request schedule changes for agents.
Higher flexibility through shift bidding
Monet Agent/Supervisor portal will present unfilled shifts to qualified agents on which to bid, allowing them to volunteer for shifts normally outside their desired working hours. Supervisors can review bids made for a shift and select the agent they wish to assign.
Better decision through comprehensive reports
Supervisors save time spent manually entering agent requests and have access to key reports to make faster and better decisions. Supervisors can review agent schedules, approve or decline agent exceptions, schedule bids, and view critical reports with the employee self-service scheduling application.
