“As a leading contact centre solution provider with an installed base of approximately six million seats globally, Avaya continues to expand AI capabilities that are evolving the contact centre into what is now the customer experience centre,” said Eric Rossman, Vice-President, Technology Partners and Alliances, Avaya.
