Connect First announced today that TMC, a global, integrated media company, has named Connect First’s IVR Studio as a 2014 CUSTOMER Contact Center Technology Award winner presented by TMC’s CUSTOMER magazine.

“I was nervous that we had made IVR Studio too user-friendly when my 5 year old daughter learned how to use it,” said Geoff Mina, Connect First CEO. “This award is both an honor and a relief, as it proves that adults and children both approve of IVR Studio.”

Connect First’s IVR Studio can be summed up in two words: simple complexity. The award-winning software company has developed a full featured, drag and drop IVR builder that is simple enough for anyone to use with powerful coding features available for development experts to create even the most complex IVRs.

Connect First has roots going back to the infancy of IVR. Experts within the company have over 26 years of hands-on IVR creation, development, and management that went into the creation of IVR Studio.

“Congratulations to Connect First for being granted a 2014 CUSTOMER Contact Center Technology Award. Connect First’s IVR Studio has been selected for demonstrating innovation, quality and unique features which have had a positive impact on the customer experience,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “We’re pleased to recognize this achievement.”
