We're proud to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from Aspect Software in the future.
Chelmsford, MA (Vocus) February 7, 2008
Aspect Software, Inc., the world's largest company solely focused on the contact center, has received INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine's 2007 Product of the Year Award for Unified Command and Control™, a highly scalable solution that enables contact centers to centralize reporting, routing, administration and workflow management across as many as 40,000 agents at more than 40 contact centers.
"Companies around the world are focusing on reducing complexity, lowering costs and increasing their business agility," said Mike Sheridan, senior vice president of strategy and marketing for Aspect Software. "Unified Command and Control is a key component of our unified approach and helps organizations achieve these goals by simplifying the management and control of multiple contact centers and applications, regardless of whether they are based on session initiation protocol (SIP)-based voice-over Internet protocol (VoIP) platforms or traditional voice platforms."
Sheridan continued, "Unified Command and Control is making virtualization a reality for our contact center customers that require greater control, flexibility and scalability, while also leveraging existing technology investments. We're extremely pleased to have received this recognition from INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine, which underscores the value of the Aspect unified approach."
Made generally available in November 2007, Unified Command and Control consolidates data from various contact center applications, eliminating areas of duplication and reducing operating costs associated with managing agent profiles. The solution allows businesses to use one system to facilitate all agent moves, adds, and changes across sites, and enables local survivable nodes, ensuring business continuity during a local network failure or in the event of a disaster. Built on a service-oriented architecture (SOA), Unified Command and Control is extensible to similarly open standards-based products.
"Aspect Software has proven they are committed to quality and excellence while addressing real needs in the marketplace. INTERNET TELEPHONY is pleased to grant them a 2007 Product of the Year Award for Unified Command and Control," said Rich Tehrani, TMC president and editor-in-chief of INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine. "We're proud to honor their hard work and accomplishments and look forward to more innovative solutions from Aspect Software in the future."
