"Jacada is very pleased to be included in Gartnerâ€™s 2010 Magic Quadrant," said Richard Stern, SVP of global marketing and products for Jacada. "We believe this recognition underscores our focus on the value of great customer service and on delivering solutions that reduce cost, increase efficiency and ultimately add to the bottom line through improved customer experience and satisfaction for our customers."
The Magic Quadrant for CRM Customer Service Contact Centers "looks at customer service software for the human agent in the contact center versus self-service. Enterprise demands for analytics, integration with Web customer service and communities are driving changes in the industry." Gartner set market traction and momentum criteria as well as short-term viability criteria that vendors must meet to be included in the "CRM Customer Service Contact Centers" magic quadrant.
Being positioned in the Gartner Magic Quadrant is only the latest recognition for Jacada. Earlier this year, Jacada® WorkSpace Unified Agent Desktop and Jacada® Advisor Dynamic Agent Assistance solutions both received 2009 Product of the Year Awards from Technology Marketing Corporation's (TMC©) Customer Interaction Solutions magazine. Jacada also recently announced the signing of a material agreement with a new customer, a large U.S.-based provider of digital television services.
