Primary Matters Releases “On Demand” Webinar On Activity-Based Planning and Budgeting
Tiburon, CA – August 5, 2004. Primary Matters Inc., a leader in the development of activity-based analysis, announces the release of a 15-minute webinar presentation that introduces the concepts, value, and approach of activity-based planning and budgeting for customer contact centers.
Activity-Based analysis is quickly becoming adopted by more and more organizations to compliment and enhance their current planning and budgeting practices. The unique approach offered by Primary Matters reveals an integrated and broadened view of the users’ organization. It allows the endless number of questions surrounding the planning and budgeting process, as well as a limitless number of ‘What-If’ scenarios, to be answered much more quickly and accurately than previously possible.
The topics discussed in this webinar are illustrated using The Primary Matters Guide®, Primary Matters’ flagship product, which is an activity-based software tool providing a complete planning environment and decision support solution.
Greg Borton, CEO of Primary Matters, states, “Our focus is to empower management so that they can quickly create accurate budgets and resource forecasts. In doing so, the factors that drive the demand and work accomplished by their organizations are able to be understood, and the business impact of projects are made visible”. In this webinar, he will discuss topics such as:
- Creating an activity-based view of your organization, including demand, business processes and resources (personnel and systems),
- How the business impact of proposed projects, for instance, changing business processes, personnel strategies, and adding technology can be captured and quantified using an activity-based approach,
- The value added to your current ACD, Workforce Management and budgeting practices; and
- The effort and skill that it takes to introduce activity-based planning into your organization.
This approach is now being used by many contact centers in leading organizations. Using activity-based planning, these companies are able to understand the business impact of projects ranging from outsourcing, VoIP, business process changes, and IVR modifications. They are receiving benefits such as an increase in both quality and efficiency, and in some cases obtaining cost reductions of up to 25%.
