“2015 was an outstanding year for the cloud-based contact centre infrastructure market and 2016 is looking to be even better. Enterprises of all sizes, in many countries, are either adopting or considering the use of cloud-based contact center systems. Adoption is being driven by increased platform reliability, improved system usability and flexibility, as well as the traditional benefits from cloud-based solutions.”
