Emerging Growth Hubs in the Australian and New Zealand Hosted/Cloud Contact Center Landscape
Well-recognized benefits and emerging technology trends will boost interest across sectors
While most companies in the Asia-Pacific region are expected to explore the Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) model, many of them would look for ways to increase the returns on their investment from their existing infrastructures. These companies are likely to adopt hybrid solutions, as established system vendors start offering more deployment options. The contact center market will continue to shift from systems toward cloud solutions. Solution providers will need to focus on clearly articulating upgrade strategies and life cycle road maps that will allow for the provision of effective omnichannel customer support.
Integrating new contact channels (e.g., mobile contact, chat, and social media) and developing omnichannel customer experience strategies will be the top drivers that will encourage companies to move to the cloud. In this regard, interactive voice response (IVR) will be of significant interest. Although many had predicted the demise of IVR, it is still a growing channel that is acquiring new capabilities, such as text response, speech enablement, and application in virtual assistant scenarios.
Contact center analytics is expected to be a strong growth area for most vendors. Enterprises are increasingly seeking to source end-to-end analytics solutions from their primary contact center infrastructure or workforce optimization vendors. Newer options such as robotic process automation, Big Data, and the Internet of Things (IoT) will continue to drive growth during the forecast period.
