Dynamic Call Assignment Qlikview Software

A customer recently asked us about using Dynamic Licensing after hearing conflicting suggestions. Here’s the deal… 

When you enable the “Allow dynamic CAL assignment” option, QlikView will automatically assign a document CAL to any user who goes to AccessPoint and opens up an app. 

This is great on one hand because you wouldn’t have to manually assign that user a license. However, once a CAL is assigned to a user, it will stay that way until it is manually unassigned. Also, it cannot be unassigned from one user and reassigned to another user for 24 hours since it’s last use (24 hour quarantine period). So, you can not have users come and go and share licenses. 

So, while this may be helpful for some companies and situations, I usually tend to guide my customers to manually assign licenses to users so as to absolutely know for sure that the right people have the right access at the right time.

What is "hot seating" in the call center, and how does it affect agent morale and productivity?

Hot seating allows call center agents to sit in any seat. It requires enabling technology, such as a common desktop and routing and quality monitoring software that support dynamic, software-driven assignment of skills and agent information to the endpoint.

I have never seen any studies or data specifically providing evidence that hot seating positively or negatively...

impacts agent morale or productivity. Anecdotally, I would say that in the right culture, it can be positive for the agents. They can choose where they want to sit, giving them a level of empowerment. It gives agents the chance to interact with a variety of people, and can offer value in disseminating knowledge among agents. Without the right culture, it can be counterproductive, making agents feel like they don't have their own space or they aren't near the right resources to support them. Ideally, call centers with hot seating offer a variety of ways for agents to connect with and communicate with their team and team leaders -- instant messaging, team huddles, walk-around team leaders, bulletin boards (electronic and physical) and other tools like voicemail and email are all useful. In addition, hot seating can be valuable to the call center by reducing facilities costs and simplifying seating configuration management.
