SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Frost & Sullivan has identified Five9 as a leader in the Frost Radar: North American Enterprise Cloud Contact Center Market, 2021. A provider of cloud contact center software, Five9’s focus on developing enterprise-class platform capabilities and its artificial intelligence (AI)-infused solutions that help facilitate digital transformation for its customers have placed it high on the Radar Innovation scale.
The mature North American Contact Center as a Service (CaaS) market is expected to grow from $2.1 billion to $4.1 billion by 2026. In recent years, the expansion of hybrid cloud offerings and the alleviation of many data security and scalability concerns about cloud deployments have led to an increase in the large enterprise portion of the market shifting toward full cloud models. Remote work mandates due to COVID-19 have accelerated this migration, opening the door for enterprise-class providers to grow share even further.
In particular, Enterprise Cloud Contact Center (ECCC) providers need to provide robust outbound solutions that adhere to regulatory compliance requirements, omnichannel service, and streamlined migration paths. In catering to these requirements, the ECCC provider must be equipped with emerging technology and advanced tools to introduce reimagined contact center platforms with next-generation development tools and omnichannel workflows.
“Since 2019, Five9 offers expanded scalability to support thousands of agents on a single-tenant domain,” explained Nancy Jamison, Industry Director, ICT at Frost & Sullivan. “Through talent investment and acquisition, the company has gained new functionalities to enable its continued growth and has invested heavily in the area of AI technologies, becoming a top performer in the market.”
