Because variability is a key feature of all call centers, it needs to be taken into account when creating a model of a call center. In order to account for the variability within the call center, Simcad Pro allows users to import historical data from external data sources, as well as the ability to utilize live data to keep systems up-to-date.
Simcad Pro uses real information from the call center in question, the generated results are reliable and mathematically accurate. Once the model is assembled, users can begin to either import or manually input parameters such as call type, call pathways, resources, timing, capacity, etc… As the model is running, users are able to visually see where backups within the call center are occurring.
The ability to actually see where backups are occurring allows users to make necessary changes, view the new system and ensure that the changes do not cause problems elsewhere in the system. The “Simulation Analysis Report” provides users with a quick analysis of the model, identifying the poorly performing resources and what is causing the problem.
