Delayed service-level agreement processing
Delayed service levels
When a case reaches an assignment, the system creates an assignment. However, in some cases, a user cannot start work on the assignment immediately. In these cases it is beneficial to delay the processing of a service-level agreement (SLA) to account for assignments that are not immediately ready for users.
For example, a stock brokerage company establishes a deadline of two hours to price assets in customer accounts. Associates cannot begin pricing assets until after the stock market closes for the day at 4:30 P.M. Even if the case reaches the assignment earlier in the day, the system does not send the assignment to the associate's worklist until 4:30 P.M. The deadline is 6:30 P.M.
