Content Guru makes its second successive appearance in the report, receiving a comprehensive in-depth feature following on from a high level overview last year.

Sean Taylor, Managing Director of Content Guru commented:

“2015 has been a milestone year for Content Guru. We celebrate our tenth anniversary with growing industry recognition and international expansions into Germany and the USA. I am delighted that we have been recognised by DMG and have had our service offerings showcased on such an important platform within the industry.”

Donna Fluss, President of DMG Consulting added:

“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.”
