Verint Systems has ranked as Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific’s latest market share leader for contact centre applications, as well as receiving the “2018 Customer Contact Optimisation Solutions Vendor of the Year” award.

In Frost & Sullivan’s recently published Asia Pacific Contact Centre Applications Market CY 2017 (Forecast till 2024) report, Verint led all vendors, ranking top among 40 companies included in the analysis.

The report’s top six current and projected market drivers include:

“This prestigious report highlights the valued partnerships we are building in this dynamically growing region, as well as the enthusiastic response to our cloud-based solutions,” says Verint Asia Pacific president Ady Meretz.

“Our open design allows organisations to adopt individual elements of our solutions or use an entire platform-driven approach.”

In addition to being recognised as the number one contact centre applications vendor across the region, Frost and Sullivan’s Asia Pacific Contact Centre Applications Market study also highlights Verint’s leadership position in most of the countries around Asia Pacific such as Australia, India, China, Singapore and Hong Kong.
