The following features have been added or updated for this release.
Bright Pattern is pleased to announce the addition of the Omni QM quality management suite to Bright Pattern Contact Center software. Omni QM is a suite of advanced quality management tools designed to facilitate the process of assessing and improving the quality of agent communications across media channels. Omni QM is a feature option that is built in to Bright Pattern Contact Center, enabled as part of your organization’s contract.
Omni QM builds upon Bright Pattern’s existing quality management functionality by introducing advanced quality management features, such as the ability to design evaluation forms, determine an evaluation process, have agents conduct self-evaluations, assign agent score, conduct calibrations for the purpose of improving the evaluation process, and much more.
In addition, Omni QM unifies quality management processes by placing all quality management features into a single application. When Omni QM is enabled, all interaction records, interaction search functions, evaluation forms, and other quality management tools are accessed via an evaluation console built into the Agent Desktop application. This means that supervisors no longer have to visit the Contact Center Administrator application to access interaction records and grade them; instead, supervisors can monitor, search, review, and evaluate their team’s interactions without ever leaving Agent Desktop. Moreover, agents can easily view their own interactions, evaluations, and quality score from Agent Desktop. Omni QM gives users a bird’s eye view of interaction quality across all channels and services.
The following summaries break down what is noticeably different in the Contact Center Administrator application and the Agent Desktop application when Omni QM is enabled.

Interaction Records when Omni QM is Enabled
When Omni QM is enabled, the Interaction Records have a different look. In addition to the playback console, Interactions Records now include new tabs: Evaluation, Details, All Evals, and Case.
These tabs let you experience the functionality of Omni QM from within the interaction record, showing you the evaluation form with questions for grading the interaction; details about the interaction, including the agent’s notes and a place for the evaluator to enter comments; a list of all evaluations for the given interaction; and case details, if a case was added for the given interaction. When Omni QM is not enabled, the playback console looks the same as it did before.
