Aspect Receives Frost & Sullivan’s 2016 Global Workforce Optimization Solutions Company of the Year Award


Aspect has long been known for its industry leading Workforce Management solutions, but until recently, other components of the Workforce Optimization (WFO) portfolio had a much lower profile.  For the past year and a half, we’ve been hard at work enhancing our WFO feature set and going to market as an integrated suite rather than as disparate WFO components.  We are seeing the fruits of our labors pay off in WFO bookings and in industry recognition.  I am pleased to be able to report that Aspect has won this year’s Frost & Sullivan Global Workforce Optimization Solutions Company of the Year Award.  It confirms in an unequivocal way that Aspect has moved into the circle of leaders that has traditionally been occupied by only NICE and Verint.
