Gartner’s Magic Quadrant evaluates Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) providers within the cloud contact center service solutions industry. This Magic Quadrant provides the following definition for its Leaders: “Given that the CCaaS market in North America is still maturing, Leaders can best be described as those suppliers with a strong multichannel product and service capability that have already amassed a large installed base of both large and small customers. Leaders also benefit from being able to support varying levels of deployment complexity, including multichannel deployments and integration to a variety of third-party systems.”

“We are honored to be named a leader for a third year in a row,” said Paul Jarman, CEO at NICE inContact. “We believe this demonstrates NICE inContact’s proven customer successes at scale, helping organizations to be first in their industry by powering exceptional customer and employee experiences with NICE inContact CXone.”
