The global contact centre software market is likely to gain momentum from a rise in omnichannel communication, according to a report from Fortune Business Insights.

The market is expected to progress at an astounding CAGR of 14.62% and reach US$48,010.0 million by the end of 2026.

In terms of deployment, the market is further grouped into on-premise and cloud. On the bases of organisation size, the market is classified into small, medium, and large enterprises. By component, the market is segmented into solutions and services.

Contact centres are used to manage customer service, telemarketing, accounting, debt collection, and other associated operations. They are often operated by external businesses.

Recently, numerous efficient channels of communications have become available for use resulting in the evolution of customer preferences and redefined content value.

All these factors are projected to increase the adoption of contact centre software solutions across the globe.
