NICE inContact Named the Market Share Leader in Cloud-Based Contact Center Infrastructure by DMG Consulting

Independent industry analysis estimates NICE inContact leads in market share by seats

SALT LAKE CITY, January 28, 2021 – NICE (Nasdaq: NICE) today announced that NICE inContact has been named in DMG Consulting’s 2020-2021 Cloud-Based Contact Center Infrastructure Product and Market Report as the market share leader based on seats. The 13th annual report from DMG, a leading independent research and consulting firm, which explores the competitive landscape, market share, projections and adoption rates, also cites expected added momentum for this market as more businesses move their contact centers to the cloud.

According to the report, the cloud contact center industry has experienced significant growth over the past 10 years and cloud contact center as a service (CCaaS) adoption is expected to accelerate in 2021. 

“In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the cloud has emerged as a powerful tool to ensure business continuity amid rapidly changing industry environments,” said Donna Fluss, President, DMG Consulting. “Leading cloud-based contact center solutions providers are enabling contact centers to take advantage of the lessons learned from 2020 and thrive in the years to come.”

Paul Jarman, NICE inContact CEO said “Our own research has shown a rapid acceleration of cloud adoption in the last few months. The NICE inContact CX Transformation Benchmark found that 66 percent of contact center leaders who previously did not rely on the cloud planned to make the switch as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cloud contact center technology, such as NICE inContact CXone, provides the foundation for the digital, omnichannel flexibility needed to achieve success.”

NICE inContact was one of nine vendors to fully meet DMG’s participation criteria to be analyzed in this edition of the Cloud-Based Contact Center Infrastructure Product and Market Report. Requirements for evaluation included offering a cloud-based contact center infrastructure solution or platform that handles omnichannel routing and queuing, as well as the ability to support multiple tenants on the same computing platform.
