About the Gartner Magic Quadrant

A Gartner Magic Quadrant is a culmination of research in a specific market, giving you a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the market’s competitors. By applying a graphical treatment and a uniform set of evaluation criteria, a Magic Quadrant helps you quickly ascertain how well technology providers are executing their stated visions and how well they are performing against Gartner’s market view. The Magic Quadrant for CCaaS, Western Europe covers a market that is “maturing such that IT leaders and customer service organizations have a range of competitive offers to consider in place of more traditional, premises-based contact centre infrastructure”.

According to the report, “Challengers also have attained a large installed base of customers, and have service capabilities in multiple countries; however, they are more focused on selling on a country level, especially through channels, rather than addressing the Pan-European requirements of IT organizations.”
