“We believe this recognition from Gartner, for the third year running, is a strong indicator of the value that our clients continue to experience with our powerful applications and services, our expertise in deploying Unified Communications solutions and the outstanding support that we are able to deliver in the rapidly evolving UC market,” said Todd Strubbe, President of West’s Unified Communications business segment. “We remain focused on providing our clients with the industry’s best cloud-based communication applications and services. West recognizes that empowering our clients to transform the ways they do business, which can give them new competitive advantages, requires that we aggressively reinvent both our products and the enveloping services.”
