Vendors/Suppliers

In this fast moving, dynamic industry, it is sometimes difficult to keep abreast of what is happening and what new products and services are out there. One thing is for sure, it’s worth keeping in touch with potential suppliers even if you do not have a need today. There will always be something that comes up at short notice and you will need to react – better to be ready than unprepared. You may have noticed that ContactCenterWorld.com features an extensive world-wide directory of suppliers (see ‘suppliers' tab) so keep an eye on what’s out there!

There seems to be a misconception here about what VoIP is and what it is not. VoIP is a replacement for your existing telecom provider, it can enable all the same functions of your existing system at a lower cost. If the existing processes are bad then no communication provider can fix it.
