Instantly access volume, duration and cycle time analyses that helps to identify trends and accurately report to upper management.
Users are assigned and receive work, in prioritized order and based on their skills level and work load.

WCM flexibly allows for changes in work distribution and operational priorities, giving supervisors greater control coordinating staff and work activities with associated organizations and systems. The overall result is a noticeable elevation of accountability with all levels working concertedly to support the goals of the business.
Can you relate to this?
At some point companies recognize that regardless of how much they invest, work centers performing manual work will never be eliminated and employees in those centers, as do employees across the organization, deserve effective tools to be productive. Without the right tools, managers have limited understanding of their work centers and are unable to improve productivity.
Fundamental to improving the work center's efficiency is the ability to create an environment that enables less manual input and empowers workers to quickly gain and process the information that will let them make sound decisions that expedite the completion of the work.
ServiceSPAN has been providing solutions that create efficiencies in manual work centers for more than 20 years. We have learned from our experience that there are many different work center requirements such as integrating systems, creating processes, dynamically assigning work, streamlining user interfaces and capturing performance metrics. Our software solution, Work Center Manager (WCM) addresses all of those and more.
