By Michelle Robart
As a supplier of enterprise-wide workforce management solutions, InVision Software (News - Alert) AG today announced it has received the 2008 EMEA Agent Performance Optimization (APO) Competitive Strategy Leadership Award of Frost & Sullivan.
InVision was recognized by the analyst firm for leveraging its advanced technology and regional know-how to seize a large part of the EMEA workforce management solutions market, including some very prominent large-installation customers.
“InVision has demonstrated mastery of the European market for workforce management software by concentrating on its unique strengths: diverse language and software localization capabilities,” stated Keith Dawson, Frost & Sullivan (News - Alert) principal analyst, contact centers.
According to Dawson, “InVision has been both market savvy and technologically innovative, emphasizing the flexible, browser-based nature of its software at a time when companies in EMEA are looking for ease of use and deployment. InVision has not allowed itself to be painted into a 'niche' corner by larger competitors; the company's strategy for growth, which bucks the trend towards consolidation and suite-building in contact center software, has immense potential.”
“The Frost & Sullivan award confirms our leading position in technology, innovation and go-to-market strategy,” said Peter Bollenbeck, CEO of InVision Software. “The open architecture of our solution InVision Enterprise WFM (News - Alert) offers user interfaces to all industry specific applications for seamless integration in existing IT environments as well as the ability to customize the system. This is particularly important to our overall goals as we are rapidly moving to bring our workforce management system to executives and professionals in non-contact-centre contexts.”
By creating a best-of-breed tool that meets the increasing needs of contact centers for advanced scheduling, InVision has created its own niche.
In addition, the company has a system that is adaptable, flexible and moves beyond what many of its competitors offer. This has positioned InVision to successfully resist the trend towards consolidation and suite-building that has been moving through the APO marketplace in both EMEA and North America.
