Contact centers looking to create a short list of vendors to consider when modernizing their contact call center technology are looking to the cloud to modernize their operations. How many times each week do your conversations start with “If only” or “What if”? As in, “If only we could personalize our customer experience (CX) more easily” or “What if we could consolidate routing across our entire contact center operation?” And how often are those requests met with a resounding “no”?
Transforming the “no” into “yes” requires your contact center to employ technology designed to flex and scale at the speed of business. It also requires a software partner that’s proven to execute now and in the future.
It’s usually not because of a lack of willingness from your team or management to adapt and improve operations and CX, but rather an inability of your current contact center technology to support that change and growth. For this reason, more contact centers are turning to a unified cloud CX platform to modernize and future-proof their technology investments so they can achieve their operational goals.
We recently made the exciting announcement that—for the fourth straight year—NICE inContact was named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS),North America . We’re proud to be recognized with the highest position in Ability to Execute (weighted toward current product, customer experience, and sales execution) and by our placement in the Leader’s quadrant based on our Completeness of Vision (weighted toward market understanding and product strategy).
Just over a year ago, we launched our NICE inContact CXone cloud customer experience platform as the first unified suite of cloud native applications to combine omnichannel routing, analytics, workforce optimization (WFO or WEM), and analytics & artificial intelligence (AI). And I believe that the broad market acceptance of the CXone platform from small business to large enterprises has been reflected in our year over year gains in the Gartner MQ for Ability to Execute.
We share this news because Gartner’s insights are extremely useful as contact centers create a short list of vendors to consider when modernizing their contact call center technology. And because transforming the “no” into “yes” requires your contact center to employ technology designed to flex and scale at the speed of business. It also requires a software partner that’s proven to execute now and in the future.
