As I’ve blogged recently, we are in the midst of a significant push in the UK contact center market. Customers, partners, and key influencers have validated that we have the right strategy, vision, and ability to execute to make a real change in the market. Coming out of my visit to the UK, are two articles published this week that do a great job of explaining how we are competing in the market.
First, Neil Davey in mycustomer.com, details a conversation that he and I had along with Andy Chew, one of our senior collaboration sales leaders in Europe. The full article/interview is here: http://www.mycustomer.com/topic/social-crm/ciscos-plots-aggressive-customer-collaboration-expansion-uk/133446#
Additionally, Alex Blyth in the lead story of “Fifty Reasons to Love Call Centres” a special supplement in Saturday’s London Times, outlined a number of changes in the customer service market, including our perspective that self-service should be used appropriately, but is not a catch-all for all customer requests. The supplement can be found here: http://np.netpublicator.com/netpublication/n71814443
It’s great to see these stories in the press, and it’s further validation of our approach and momentum.
