VPI Receives "Positive" Rating in Gartner's Contact Center Quality Management MarketScope Report
Gartner recommends that existing customers continue incremental investments, while potential customers should put VPI on a shortlist of tactical alternatives.

Camarillo , Calif. September 24, 2007 VPI ( Voice Print International, http://www.VPI-corp.com ), a leading provider of integrated interactions recording and proactive workforce optimization (WFO) applications, today announced that it has received a "positive" rating in Gartner's "MarketScope for Contact Center Quality Management, 2007", a report published on September 14, 2007. A Gartner MarketScope “positive” rating means the firm recommends that existing customers continue incremental investments, while potential customers should put this vendor on a shortlist of tactical alternatives. The Gartner evaluation criteria for the MarketScope report is driven by several key factors, ranging from the vendor's viability and product capabilities to its support infrastructure and geographic representation. Other decisive factors include the experience of the vendor's customers and the product strategy.

As defined by Gartner, “the Quality Management software market encompasses applications for agent initiated, rules driven, and full-time recording of customer audio interactions, as well as agent desktop activity (screen capture). It also provides call evaluation tools, online monitoring tools for joining live calls, and speech analytics for audio insight.”

According to Gartner, the role of contact center quality monitoring (QM) is evolving and becoming a more strategic enterprise investment. Combined with the steady growth of the market, Gartner has defined the QM market as positive. The report states that, "the importance of contact center quality programs has been enhanced due to the recent corporate strategy changes that are placing an increased emphasis on the customer experience and growth. The contact center is viewed within many organizations as a key enabler of this and consequently the performance of agents is a critical factor."

In response to news of VPI's “positive” rating in the report, Andrew Marsh, president and CEO of VPI said, “We believe this ‘Positive' rating confirms VPI's position as an industry leader and underscores our commitment to providing customers with advanced quality management solutions that meet their unique needs and challenges.”
