Cloud Contact Center Roundup

By Paula Bernier, Executive Editor, TMC  |  January 15, 2014

Starting this year CUSTOMER magazine will publish monthly roundups of a select product category. These roundups will essentially be like mini-buyers’ guides. They will include the names and URLs of companies that offer solutions in a particular category, and then provide a brief write-up of what each company provides in terms of solutions in that space.

So, if you are looking for a solution or have an offering in one of the featured roundup categories, this is a resource to find what you’re looking for or highlight what you can deliver.

This issue’s roundup focuses on cloud contact center solutions. To find the focus of CUSTOMER’s future roundups, see our editorial calendar at: http://images.tmcnet.com/mkt/media-kit/Customer_Ed_Cal.pdf.
