ShoreGroup, Inc., a premier professional services and software solutions firm, today announced the appointment of Bharat Shah as Vice President of Business Analytics & Orchestration. Mr. Shah will lead the strategy and business practice for ShoreGroup’s Sextant™ Contact Center Business Analytics solution.

Prior to joining ShoreGroup, Mr. Shah was a senior member of the Cisco Systems management team responsible for Business Operations for Emerging Solutions and leading the global customer-facing systems integrations team for Cisco’s Contact Center Practice. As the Voice Practice delivery lead at Cisco, Mr. Shah was engaged in customer call centers for numerous Fortune 100 companies and major enterprises. Mr. Shah joined Cisco Systems in 1999 upon their acquisition of GeoTel Communications, an innovator in intelligent contact center systems and technologies at the foundation of Cisco’s Unified Contact Center Enterprise (UCCE) solution. At GeoTel, Mr. Shah was responsible for architecting the user interfaces, scripts, real-time feeds and database design. Earlier, Mr. Shah founded the network contact center solutions provider Teloquent and was employed at GTE Laboratories. He also has pending patents for contact center optimization and agent productivity using collaborative platforms and social networks in conjunction with CTI and agent work-activities.

The Sextant Contact Center Business Analytics application is an easy-to-use, web-based business intelligence (BI) solution that empowers contact center management with the actionable information they need to effectively manage critical business processes and performance. It systematically acquires contact center metrics from diverse sources across the Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise, including carrier networks, IP and TDM contact centers, IVR systems, databases, desktop applications, agents and other resources and stores it in its large-scale database. Unlike traditional solutions that are limited to reporting on raw data, Sextant incorporates the contact center's business processes, data access security requirements, geographical locations, role-based views, groupings and financial detail to create a rich set of metadata that is presented in powerful real-time dashboard and historical report visualizations. Sextant is a complete turnkey contact center business intelligence solution that includes management consultation, system implementation, hardware and software, and ongoing application and systems support.
