NICE announced that NICE inContact has been named in DMG Consulting’s 2020-2021 Cloud-Based Contact Center Infrastructure Product and Market Report as the market share leader based on seats.
The 13th annual report from DMG, a leading independent research and consulting firm, which explores the competitive landscape, market share, projections and adoption rates, also cites expected added momentum for this market as more businesses move their contact centres to the cloud.
According to the report, the cloud contact centre industry has experienced significant growth over the past 10 years and cloud contact centre as a service (CCaaS) adoption is expected to accelerate in 2021.
“In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the cloud has emerged as a powerful tool to ensure business continuity amid rapidly changing industry environments,” said Donna Fluss, President, DMG Consulting. “Leading cloud-based contact centre solutions providers are enabling contact centres to take advantage of the lessons learned from 2020 and thrive in the years to come.”
Paul Jarman, NICE inContact CEO said “Our own research has shown a rapid acceleration of cloud adoption in the last few months. The NICE inContact CX Transformation Benchmark found that 66 percent of contact centre leaders who previously did not rely on the cloud planned to make the switch as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cloud contact centre technology, such as NICE inContact CXone, provides the foundation for the digital, omnichannel flexibility needed to achieve success.”
NICE inContact was one of nine vendors to fully meet DMG’s participation criteria to be analysed in this edition of the Cloud-Based Contact Center Infrastructure Product and Market Report. Requirements for evaluation included offering a cloud-based contact centre infrastructure solution or platform that handles omnichannel routing and queuing, as well as the ability to support multiple tenants on the same computing platform.
