21 Jun 2015
  • 2015 marks a 15 years of Avaya consistently appearing in the ‘Leaders Quadrant‘
  • Positioning is based on completeness of vision and ability to execute
Dubai, UAE, – Avaya has announced that it is the only vendor to be consistently positioned as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Contact Center Infrastructure for 15 years, a position held since the report’s inception in 2001.
 
Avaya is one of the few vendors that can provide the flexibility for midsize to very large companies to choose the architectural approach to implementing customer engagement solutions that’s most appropriate for their needs. Midsize to very large companies can select a complete, bundled solution or take a best of breed approach, with both available in premises-based or public, private or hybrid cloud-based service model. New capabilities provided by the Avaya Engagement Development Platform and Avaya Snap-ins enable developers and business analysts to quickly create unique communications-enabled contact center application and workflows.
 
Avaya leads the contact center industry in the Middle East region. The majority of the region’s major banks, telecom operators and public sector services run Avaya call centers. In the last few years, the company has been engaged with its largest customers in a digital transformation process of their customer experiences, transforming traditional call centers to smart customer engagement experiences using multiple channels like social media, video-based communication, web chat and others.
 
In May and June 2015, the RTA, VIVA, Mashreq, and Dubai Islamic Bank have all scooped major customer experience awards related to their Avaya call center technology investments. The company has also just concluded the live launch of the RTA’s revamped contact centre, which aligns with the RTA’s vision of delivering excellence in the customer experience, and is one of the key elements of the RTA’s transformation to a 100 per cent ‘Smart Service’ organisation.
 
The Gartner Magic Quadrant report evaluates contact center vendors on their completeness of vision and ability to execute. The annual Gartner Magic Quadrant for Contact Center Infrastructure covers vendors that provide equipment, software and services to operate contact centers used for customer, employee and service support, including outbound telemarketing, helpdesks and other structured communications operations.
