The October 15th Telarus Tuesday call welcomed NICE inContact’s VP of revenue generation, Rusty Jensen, to discuss how the leading cloud contact center supplier supports Telarus partners for success. The entire recording is available here.
Market Trends & Areas of Focus
The contact center market software market was valued at 15.92 billion in 2017, and it’s expected to reach 35.77 billion by 2023. It is not common for markets to grow this way, but there is a radical advancement happening in technology. The focus lately has been to advance technology in the following areas.
- Digital Channels: 30 different Channels
- Analytics Infusion: Biometric Authentication, Voice and Text, Sentiment, Trigger Change
- Automation and AI: Workforce Intelligence, Chat and Voice Bots, Robotic Workflow Automation
Another thing NICE inContact is seeing is that the enterprise is shifting to cloud contact center. Over 750 contact center seats are making shifts to cloud contact center to capitalize on technology and automation. This has been a very successful but incredibly difficult transition to manage as it is moving faster than most providers can, NICE inContact is the only provider that can do this. NICE inContact continues to support the small and mid-market area.
Lastly, consolidation is another big thing happening in the market. CRM and CCaaS are converging; this has led to Salesforce creating a Contact Center product. UCaaS and CCaaS are also converging, so you now have Vonage, who acquired New Voice, and RingCentral, who acquired Connect First. All of these moves will continue to disrupt.
Strategy to Help NICE Partnerships Execute
NICE inContact’s success is based on its superior platform.
