Raleigh-Durham, NC – January 21, 2021 Avaya (NYSE: AVYA), a global leader in solutions to enhance and simplify communications and collaboration, today announced it has been awarded its 600th contact center innovation patent by the U.S. Patent Office2, for its latest AI technology advancement within the Avaya OneCloud CCaaS portfolio.

With customer interactions now being predominantly mobile, online, across multiple devices and modalities, contact centers are the primary point of engagement for organizations to connect, collaborate and foster customer relationships.
