LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Oct 27, 2016) - NewVoiceMedia, a leading global provider of inside sales and contact centre technology which helps businesses sell more, serve better and grow faster, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the "Challengers" quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Contact Centre as a Service (CCaaS), Western Europe.
Gartner's Magic Quadrants objectively depict the vendor landscape in various technology sectors. Vendors are assessed against strict criteria and those who successfully appear in the Gartner Magic Quadrant fall into four categories: Leaders, Challengers, Niche Players and Visionaries depending on their "completeness of vision" and "ability to execute".

"Our technology is attracting some of the world's highest-growth businesses as we continue to drive innovation that is transforming the way they connect with their customers and prospects on a global scale", said Jonathan Gale, CEO of NewVoiceMedia.
"We feel our position as a Challenger in the Magic Quadrant for Contact Centre as a Service, Western Europe by Gartner underscores our commitment to enabling our customers to deliver a personalised customer service experience and drive a more effective sales team, while demonstrating the importance of integrating communication channels with CRM data to ensure those successful conversations.
"With greater competition and consumer power eroding traditional product- and price-based differentiation, customer experience has become a key differentiator, and by doing it well, organisations can drive the client acquisition, retention and efficiency that make leading companies successful. We know that every customer interaction is important -- from the moment you close a deal, to resolving a query -- and today's customers expect a personalised experience regardless of which service channel they choose. Our cloud contact centre and inside sales platform connects everything you know about your customers to every interaction you have with them for much more successful conversations".
According to Gartner, "Customer experience (CX) has become a CEO priority, and many enterprises are competing more on the experience than on their products or services. Most enterprises that sell services see revenue that is a multiple of the average for their industry, and, in some cases, they enjoy profits that are orders of magnitude greater than average. The value of CX is undisputed, and CX has become the new battleground for achieving sustainable, differentiated competitive advantage1".
Carole Edwards, Head of Contact Centre at Vax, Britain's leading floorcare brand, commented, "With NewVoiceMedia's platform we are able to successfully manage 70,000 multi-channel contacts each month, while improving both employee and customer satisfaction. Consumers expect an effortless experience and ContactWorld has enabled us to build solutions that are easy to access and deliver and the results are impressive too. First contact resolution is now at 87 percent, NPS is 91 percent, and we have the highest employee satisfaction scores in the business. Our customers benefit from a completely unique, personalised experience that is designed with them in mind".
