Constellation Research Names Avaya In ShortLists™ Among Top Solutions For Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) and Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS)

Avaya Experience Platform and Avaya Cloud Office are recognized for transforming customer experience with scalable, cloud-delivered communications infrastructure and modernized contact center solutions

Avaya, a global leader in customer experience and communications solutions, today announced that two of its solutions have been recognized by Constellation Research in its latest ShortLists™: Avaya Experience Platform™ (AXP) Public Cloud for Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS), and Avaya Cloud Office for Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS). Both ShortLists showcase vendors in different categories of the market that are relevant to early adopters. In addition, products included in the lists meet the threshold criteria for their category as determined by Constellation Research.

Avaya Experience Platform™ portfolio enables enterprises to improve customer and employee experiences, and business outcomes by delivering CX capabilities through a single platform, regardless of whether it is deployed in on-prem, private cloud or public cloud. It provides an integrated hybrid cloud platform that allows customers to easily choose their journey.

This allows them to deliver an experience that provides their end-users with more options, faster responses, and a more personalized approach. Organizations can easily connect everything—voice, video, chat, messaging, and more—to deliver effortless experiences for customers at every touchpoint, bringing together teams, resources, and insights to maximize contact center performance and experiences.

Avaya Cloud Office is a cloud-based communications system with a rich set of features including enterprise grade voice, video, IM/messaging, online meetings and conferencing, collaboration capabilities, and more. With Avaya Cloud Office, customers can easily connect their entire workforce, whether in the office, mobile, or remote, to a single system regardless of their location.

"We are honored that Avaya has been recognized by Constellation Research for both our CCaaS (AXP Public Cloud) and UCaaS (Avaya Cloud Office) capabilities," said Soren Abildgaard, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Avaya. "This acknowledgement underscores Avaya’s commitment to providing solutions that not only streamline communications, but also enhance the experiences of customers and employees alike through more impactful interactions. Our public cloud option is part of the broader AXP platform, which is designed to help customers integrate new innovations at their own pace without disruption, and to choose their journey across deployment methods. This delivers faster, more personalized service across all channels, and equips businesses with the tools to achieve seamless, efficient contact center operations and performance.”

“Modern service and communications strategies focus on those moments of collaboration and engagement with customers and across teams, be it through a contact center or across a global enterprise, putting pressure on leaders to take advantage of exciting innovations in technology while delivering an uninterrupted capacity to connect across an increasingly complex channel landscape,” noted Liz Miller, VP & Principal Analyst with Constellation Research. “What we consistently see with leaders highlighted in both the CCaaS and UCaaS Constellation ShortLists is a unique ability to deliver beyond expectations with innovations like Generative AI, agile cloud infrastructures and open architectures ready for any deployment scenario. As people find new ways to connect, solutions like the Avaya Experience Platform are at the ready to meet these new experience demands and growth opportunities.”
