AOMi UK are proud to be the back office sponsor of the Professional Planning Forum (PPF) National Best Practice Seminar, which will be taking place on 8 November 2012 at the Old Trafford Football Stadium in Manchester.

The PPF encourage the use of a solution like Active Operations Management in back office operations

The PPF promote best practice and effective planning in customer contact operations, working in all sectors to provide strategic advice and best practice support for managers and offering specialist training and accreditation for planning and analysis. The PPF National Best Practice Seminar is an essential event for planners and analysts who want to keep up to date with the latest industry developments. The seminar will offer a range of different events to explore the topic of best practice in customer contact operations, including workshops, case studies, round table discussions and networking opportunities.

AOMi’s sponsorship of this event comes shortly after the PPF encouraged the use of a solution like Active Operations Management (AOMi’s innovative approach to service operations management) in back office operations. The PPF advocated the use of an approach that, unlike Workforce Management solutions, manages backlog; this is something that Active Operations Management specifically addresses. To quote Colin Whelan from the PPF: “Workforce Management solutions do not necessarily transfer well into a back office, as they look at the demand as a workload, not a backlog. Workforce management solutions…focus all activity to the moment of contact and the resources required to deliver a consistent customer experience; this does not bear any relation to the challenges faced in a back office environment, because as soon as a service level is greater than 24 hours, then the decisions we make in the moment impact our previous performance, our current performance and, more importantly, the performance we look to have in the future…This is why a back office needs specialist support…”

The team at AOMi look forward to seeing you at the PPF Seminar; please approach the AOMi stand to find out more about the company and to see some examples of client case studies and the details of the AOMi business simulation training programme.
