- The company's validation is the success it achieves for its clients MOUNTAIN VIEW, California,Sept. 20, 2012/PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the hosted workforce management (WFM) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes ac2 Solutions with the 2012 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Differentiation Excellence.

Highly intuitive, the software removes the complexities of traditional WFM solutions to optimize performance. The AWO portal received perfect 10's when assessed for its unique features/functionality, and quality/complexity. The AWO incorporates advanced time series forecasting and staffing models that allow for hitherto unachieved levels of comprehensive strategic planning. Along with regular time series, special event forecasting, and "what if" forecasting, the system offers automated forecast accuracy tracking and concurrent optimal scheduling. It allows forecasting and scheduling for multiple skills, sites and channels, and creates agent and supervisor schedules to include exceptions, shift swapping, overtime, vacation planning, and volunteer time off. It can also schedule assignments by agent availability, preferences, and bidding.

It supports system security, compliance and standards/certifications, with SSL and one-way hash-encrypted passwords." AWO utilizes powerful forecasting algorithms, including Box-Jenkins ARIMA, exponential smoothing, Seasonal Regression, and Transfer Function Method to provide superior accuracy. The portal's artificial intelligence (AI)-based system enables users to select a best-pick module to automate model fitting and
