September 15, 2012

It is clear that around the world Contact Center Solutions are top of mind if the news this week about new contracts, alliances and capabilities are an indication. In fact, it is nice to be able to lead with so many positive developments.

  • T-Mobile is adding 100 new employees to its contact center in Maine by the end of the year.

The product side of things was also abuzz with news this week which included:

Last and certainly not least you should read Art Rosenberg’s (News - Alert) feature, “Consumer Mobility, 'Customer BYOD,' and the UC Contact Center,” where he stated that, “Unified communications” (UC) may well make the contact center the biggest source of ROI for UC-enablement.” The full article is a very valuable resource for thinking about where multi-channel touch is going in contact centers.
