ORLANDO, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 12/13/11 -- Voxeo, the leading provider of Unlocked Communications, today announced the launch of Voxeo Connect, a new global channel partner program that positions resellers and system integrators to capitalize on companies' increased interest in improving the customer experience and the market for contact center technologies, which is expected to eclipse $7.6 billion in 2012. Voxeo Connect includes a newly launched Partner Portal, Certified Partner Program and resources to provide partners with additional revenue streams and a significant competitive edge in the Automated Interactions, Contact Center and Unified Customer Experience markets.
Voxeo Connect opens the door for partners to take advantage of opportunities in voice, mobile and social customer interactions. While traditional Interactive Voice Response (IVR) solutions for automated phone self-service still are in high demand, consumers are increasingly turning to text, web chat, mobile web, smartphone apps and social networks, like Twitter, for information. With Voxeo Connect, partners have the ability to leverage customer contact solutions that are ready today to support shifting communication preferences, thereby quickly tapping into new revenue sources.
Voxeo Connect underlines the company's increased investment in partner collaboration and success. Partners build upon Voxeo's market-leading cloud hosting and on-premise private cloud solutions, offering best-of-breed specialization worldwide. The result is unmatched breadth and depth of expertise for channel partners looking to deliver value added solutions that improve the customer experience, ease adoption of new interaction channels and deliver quantifiable bottom line savings.
"Voxeo is a very partner-friendly organization that has established itself as one of the premier providers of multi-channel platforms supporting self-service and proactive applications in the cloud and on-premise," said Daniel Hong, Lead Analyst of Customer Interaction at Ovum. "Companies searching for a partner to help underpin their solutions in customer experience would be well-served exploring a relationship with Voxeo."
