English term or phrase: software and optimization services
Hello everyone,

Joe Gagnon is senior vice president at Aspect, a company that helps large corporations improve customer service with ***software and optimization services***. He says some companies simply do not prioritize satisfied customers, and have no qualms about it. “In the few cases when the cost of customer acquisition is lower than the cost of retention, there is almost a disincentive to customer satisfaction.” Gagnon relayed a quote from a fast-food franchise operator who told him, “I don’t really care about customer satisfaction. I just want to serve them food and have them pay me.”

Is it software + optimization services?
Or is it software services + optimization services?

Thank you.

Selected answer:workforce optimization software
Explanation:
I can see why you asked this, as the English doesn't make sense - it doesn't say what is being optimized.

The simplest way to answer this is to look at the company's website:

"Workforce Optimization

Aspect EQ Workforce optimization solutions increase productivity for millions of [customer service] agents worldwide while enhancing their work lives every day – from real-time coaching to managing their schedules via smartphones with ease.

Workforce, quality and performance management. The Aspect EQ suite covers it all and is designed to adapt rapidly and cost-effectively to your changing contact center needs."

You could also say something like "workforce productivity enhancement" if you think "workforce optimization" isn't specific enough.

And you should add a translator's note explaining why you've added "workforce".
