The Buyers Guide assesses 22 vendors’ products using the Ventana Research methodology, called the value index, evaluating software in seven key categories that are weighted to reflect buyers’ needs based on their expertise and research. The Buyers Guide evaluates how well vendors’ offerings will address organizations’ requirements for contact centre suite software.

“Our Buyers Guide reports are unique in several ways. First, they are a buyer-focused resource. We try to simulate the questions that buyers in a variety of different personas will have when looking at complex technologies.

Second, in these particular reports we took a very broad view of the contact centre market, looking at vendors that come to the space with very different kinds of expertise and experience.

We start from the premise that the buyer needs to fit this technology into an already complex tech stack, so we look at different aspects of the product to assess how adaptable it is, how reliable, how customizable (and in what ways), along with dozens of other aspects of use and deployment.

Evaluations at other analyst firms have different agendas, all useful to a certain degree, but we feel that our close approach is the most beneficial to people needing to keep up with a tech landscape that is constantly shifting in confusing and unexpected ways.”
