The report focuses on interactive voice response (IVR) and voice portal platforms being valuable technologies for improving the return on contact center investments. They provide customer self-service capabilities that reduce the reliance on contact center agents to resolve customer service issues. Leading companies require their customer service operations to increase automation and offer greater levels of personalization in self-service, as well as continually evaluate how to increase self-service utilization and call completion rates.

"We believe the Gartner report underscores our commitment to providing the most complete yet flexible platform and development environment for Unified Self-Service," said Jonathan Taylor, chairman and CEO of Voxeo. "We are pleased that Gartner rated Voxeo as a 'Strong Positive.' We consider this rating a testament of our product strategy, innovation, business model, market understanding and above all, our customer service. We're dedicated to this market, and it's an honor to be recognized for that."

Voxeo products evaluated for the Gartner MarketScope report include:

VoiceObjects Application Lifecycle Management Suite: the most comprehensive software available in the world today for the creation, management, reporting and analytics of multi-channel self-service applications. Companies such as Vodafone, DHL, Adobe and Swisscom use VoiceObjects to streamline applications development, deliver richer 1:1 personalization and transform the cost equation for operating large-scale self-service systems. The solution is proven to cut costs by up to 50% and ongoing maintenance by 80%.

Prophecy Unified Self-Service Platform: Voxeo's high performance voice portal platform for inbound and outbound customer self-service.

The Gartner MarketScope report was published just as Voxeo announced at SpeechTEK the launch of VoiceObjects12 that simplifies like never before mobile customer service, as well as multi-channel application development, management and analytics. Voxeo also announced its new Voxeo Security Suite to combat contact center and consumer fraud, including social engineering tactics. The Gartner report, which was written by Jay Lassman and Bern Elliott, outlines the state of the overall market, the criteria for inclusion in the report, the evaluation criteria and then provides individual company-specific descriptions.
