Press Release   •   Nov 01, 2016 09:18 GMT

Evaluation based on completeness of vision and ability to execute

BT today announced that it has been named by Gartner Inc. as a Leader in the October 2016 Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) Magic Quadrant, Western Europe, maintaining its leadership position for the second consecutive year.

For this report, Gartner evaluated ten companies against completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Gartner defines a Leader as follows: “because the CCaaS market in Western Europe is still maturing, Leaders can best be described as those suppliers with a strong multichannel product and service capability that have already amassed a large installed base of both large and small customers. These vendors also benefit from offering Pan-European coverage for multicountry solutions, as well as in-country operational support for local sales opportunities.”

Andrew Small, vice-president for Unified Communications, Customer Relationship Management and mobility at Global Services, BT, said: “We are delighted to be named a Leader for Contact Centre as a Service for the second year running. We believe this report recognises our continued investment into new products and services and is a further validation of our Cloud Contact offering and our Cloud of Clouds portfolio strategy.”
