The awards, the 10th Annual Top Ranking Performer Awards recognize the best contact centers and professionals working within the industry all around the World. The program is split into 3 regional events - Americas, Europe Middle East & Africa, Asia Pacific and only the best in each region qualify to present their case to an esteemed audience of industry peers who then determine who is the best and who qualifies to represent the best in the region to share best practices at our annual global best practices conference in Las Vegas 2-5th November 2015 (www.ContactCenterWorld.com/conferences)
Every year industry professionals from around the World join the event in Vegas to learn from the best all around the World. An expected audience of around 200+ executives from over 30 nations will attend the Las Vegas conference and hear from IGT and other top performers as they share their secrets of success with the audience who in turn go away with hundreds of best practice ideas to improve their contact center. It’s been likened to the Olympics as so many nations best share what they do and the only event of its kind in the World.
"For our company, earning this level of recognition from contact centers across multiple industries is a tremendous validation of our efforts and achievements," said David DeAngelis, Director of Technology Training and presenter of IGT’s Technology Innovation presentation at ContactCenterWorld’s Americas competition in Orlando this year.
The awards annually attract over 1500 entrants (across 30+ categories and covering centers from the very small to the largest) from 50 nations worldwide and IGT had to persuade judges all around the World they are worthy to be finalist and be eligible to present at the ContactCenterWorld.com Best in Americas regional conference in Orlando in June where they won GOLD. Every year ContactCenterWorld.com runs the global awards program and the 2016 awards are already open for entrants all around the world to enter (www.ContactCenterWorld.com/worldawards)
Raj Wadhwani, President of ContactCenterWorld.com added "We are proud to once again recognize IGT (previously GTECH) for their outstanding award wins this year. As a company, they have been involved for many years and have won many awards from ContactCenterWorld.com. Through the awards and conference programs, they openly share their best practices and have in turn taken away many ideas to help them continuously improve their service.

As industry leaders IGT know the value of learning and staying ahead though sharing and the ContactCenterWorld.com awards is a perfect platform to help them and other companies stay ahead of the rest!"
Steven Kay, Senior Director of IGT’s Contact Centers, added: "Our customers are aware of the efforts we make to provide outstanding service and are some of our strongest supporters. However recognition from outside of the gaming industry, especially within the ContactCenterWorld program of competitions, adds a whole new level of support to the story of our success. Other contact center experts are looking at our best practices and achievements and saying that they are worthy of special recognition. In this case, in these two categories, our peers across various industries are saying we are the best. This validation helps us, certainly, by directly building morale. And it also helps our customers know that we are constantly benchmarking ourselves and striving for continual improvement."
Wadhwani added "We are excited to invite IGT to the global best practice event in Las Vegas (2-5th November 2015 (www.ContactCenterWorld.com/conferences) where they will represent USA and the best in Americas and share their ideas alongside the best in Europe, Middle East & Africa and Asia Pacific and we will crown the best in the World at that event. For companies who enter these awards and go on to compete, the benefits are huge – not only can they win awards, they also benefit from global exposure and they learn from the best of the best in the industry so become even better!
