Aspect (News - Alert) Software, a company focused on unified communications for the contact center, today announced that the Miercom IP Contact Center Industry Study and Product Test Review recognized Aspect Unified IP as having the Best Supervisor and Real-time Monitoring/Reporting Capabilities.
 
As an independent product test center, Miercom recognized Aspect for advanced administration, recording and monitoring capabilities, and tight integrations to Unified Command and Control and PerformanceEdge (News - Alert).
 
"Aspect Software is delivering the best supervisor, reporting and monitoring capabilities in the contact center market," said Rob Smithers, chief executive officer, Miercom.

And, through Aspect Unified IP, and complementary technologies within Unified Command and Control and PerformanceEdge, Aspect has delivered these capabilities for both small- to mid-sized businesses and large contact center environments,” added Smithers.
 
According to Miercom, there are a number of key differentiators for Aspect Software which were highlighted in its product review.
