ASPECT PROVIDES WORKFORCE MANAGEMENT TO SUPPORT SUSSEX POLICE TELEPHONE OPERATION Friday 11 January 2002 PDF Print Stockley Park, London, 11 January 2002: Aspect Communications Corporation (Nasdaq: ASPT), the leading provider of business communications solutions that help companies improve customer satisfaction, reduce operating costs, gather market intelligence and increase revenue, announces today that Sussex Police has invested in an Aspect eWorkforce Management (eWFM) solution for its Lewes-based Call Handling Centre (CHC). If successful, this will be rolled out across Sussex Police's two emergency (999) control rooms in Brighton and Haywards Heath and forms the heart of Sussex Police's long-term strategy for improving its overall call handling. The CHC is staffed by 72 call handling advisors, working shifts over a 24-hour period, and deals with non-emergency telephone calls. It answers calls routed from switchboard operators, police stations, operational police officers, and 999 that overflow into the center at peak times. The eWFM solution will enable Sussex Police to better forecast, schedule and track the deployment of staff with the right skills at the required time and so maximise the performance targets within the CHC. Superintendent Colin Crookes, Sussex Police, comments, "We have stringent targets to meet in terms of call response times and quality of service whilst also operating within certain budget constraints. Aspect's eWFM solution will enable us to more easily and accurately set and manage staffing levels within the CHC, on an ongoing basis. Ultimately, we hope that through working with Aspect we can maintain a high quality of call handling performance."
