TeleTech Launches Customer Engagement OnAvaya™ Cloud Offering for Contact Centers

DENVER, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- TeleTech Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: TeleTech), a leading provider of customer experience, engagement and growth solutions, today announced that Technology Solutions Group (TSG), part of TeleTech's Customer Technology Services division, is launching a Customer Engagement OnAvaya™ cloud offering as part of its growing customer experience solutions portfolio.

The new offering leverages the virtualized capabilities of the Avaya Aura® platform to deliver Avaya's flagship contact center applications in a cloud-based service model. The Avaya Aura platform includes Communication Manager, Contact Center Elite, Avaya Call Recording and Elite Multi-Channel applications.

"TeleTech has long set a standard for providing customers with best-in-class customer service support," said Joe Manuele, senior vice president and general manager, Global Cloud Services, at Avaya. "We are pleased to play a part in TeleTech's continued growth with our Customer Engagement OnAvaya cloud-based solution to its worldwide customer base."

TeleTech will be able to extend this robust feature set of tools, applications and services to its customers in a simple, pay-as-you-use monthly utility pricing model. The shift to an operating expense model will offer TeleTech clients greater flexibility to scale up or down with business needs and better manage financial impacts.

"TeleTech's new cloud offering will help our clients drive their customer experience objectives by giving them access to industry-leading multichannel technology in an easily scalable, operationalized model," said Steve Pollema, general manager of TeleTech Customer Technology Services. "This allows them to leverage the tools they need to deliver exceptional customer experience outcomes in a way that fits their business model, but doesn't require large capital expenditures."

Initially available in the U.S., the offer will be expanded over the next 18 months to provide even broader services and global reach.
