What is changing?
With this EAP:
- Workforce managers can now set up First Reply Time and Next Reply Time SLAs for social, web, and mobile messaging channels.

- Managers can access reporting to observe trends on SLA adherence and breaches, monitor the health of their operations, and gain insights to provide a better customer experience.
