|Growth Opportunities in the North American Contact Center Systems Market, Forecast to 2021|
|Still Under Cloudy Skies, System Sales See Recovery|
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan's Digital Transformation program titled Growth Opportunities in the North America Contact Center Systems Market finds that despite healthy growth in the cloud contact center market, in 2016, the market for on-premises contact center systems recovered slightly after several years of decline. Contact center analytics, quality monitoring, and recording were particular bright spots for growth, as companies seek to get the most out of their existing investments. Inbound contact routing, outbound dialing and IVR systems showed less of a decline than in previous years.
Contact center analytics systems include speech analytics, multi-channel customer interaction analytics, and contact center performance analytics applications. Analytics is of utmost importance to companies as they move towards providing omnichannel customer care and digital transformation. While traditionally divided between agent performance analytics and customer interaction analytics, developments include bridging between the two sets to improve the customer experience and worker experience, as improvements in one are reflected in benefits in the other and vice versa.
