1 ABSTRACT Outbound Solutions Product and Market Report This is the second edition of DMG s Outbound Solutions Product and Market Report (formerly known as the Outbound Dialing Market Report). The Report covers leading and contending vendors, their products and services, underlying technology, pricing, benefits, return on investment (ROI), go-to-market strategies, trends and challenges, and planned innovations. This 382-page Report analyzes the competitive landscape, and provides insights into market activity, customer satisfaction with vendors, and implementation best practices, to help users realize the greatest continuing return on their investments. It is the dawn of a new era for outbound solutions. Traditional dialers are being reinvented and reinvigorated as robust omni-channel customer engagement solutions. The leading outbound solutions are now capable of executing intelligent, personalized and regulatorycompliant communications. The growing sophistication of these solutions is being driven by the complexity of today s compliance requirements and consumer demands for more streamlined online, mobile and social interactions. Following a decade of little investment and innovation, much is changing in the outbound world. Vendors are investing to evolve their solutions, enterprise demands are greater than they ve been in years, and the stringent regulatory environment is driving a new round of interest in compliant solutions. Several trends are impacting the outbound sector: Compliance The Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), passed in 1991, continues to play a key role in the outbound market. Complying with legislation in the US and abroad remains top-of-mind for end-user organizations, and vendors are investing to provide flexible solutions to support regulatory-compliant outbound campaigns that mitigate risk. Last year s changes to the TCPA have given this market the shot in the arm it needed to gain renewed momentum. Growing acceptance of outbound communications Many consumers, especially the growing Millennial population, are comfortable moving away from the voice call as a primary communication channel. With , instant messaging (IM), short message service (SMS)/text messaging, chat and social media in play on a daily (if not hourly or more frequent) basis with most consumers, outbound activities are becoming an accepted, even expected, mode of communication with enterprises. Proactive customer care and outbound notifications are maturing, and companies are using them in ways that are becoming increasingly appreciated by consumers, instead of being perceived as a nuisance, as they once were. In fact, proactive customer care is now an essential component of a comprehensive omni-channel customer engagement strategy that, when done right, can build brand loyalty and yield high customer satisfaction. From point to suite For as long as most can remember, dialers were silo-ed point solutions. But no longer. Multi-channel outbound capabilities are being seamlessly integrated and bundled with inbound contact center infrastructure solutions, enabling advanced routing and queuing as well as a better customer experience. Vendors are working hard to build holistic offerings that include interactive voice response (IVR), recording, quality assurance, agent scripting, surveying and, in an increasing number of solutions, speech analytics. The cloud It s everywhere, and the outbound solutions market is no exception. The cloud offers many benefits no capital investment, low start-up costs, continuous innovation, and more. First-time adopters, small contact centers, sales teams, collectors, and departments that scale seasonally are finding the cloud-based deployment model highly appealing. As of December 31, 2013, there were 3,193,235 outbound solution seats being used by 14,357 customers on a worldwide basis. This is an increase of 12.1% over the 2,849,099 seats reflected in DMG s restated 2012 outbound solutions numbers. DMG expects sales of outbound solutions to continue to perform well and show modest growth over the next five years. Growth will be driven primarily by adoption of outbound solutions in traditionally inbound centers, implementation of cloud-based solutions, and increased market interest, which is prompting innovation in this sector. DMG predicts that the outbound solutions market will grow 5% in 2014 and 2015, 5.5% in 2016 and 2017, and 5% in DMG expects outbound solutions to play a pivotal role in helping companies enhance the customer experience they deliver via true omni-channel engagement strategies. Unlike the past, outbound touches and interactions will be a fully integrated component of the customer service lifecycle, and instrumental in building engagement and loyalty. While companies need to develop effective multi-channel outbound/inbound/blended strategies to effectively interact with their customers, outbound solution providers are up to the challenge, and end users have many options in the market. To assist prospects in evaluating outbound solutions, DMG conducted an independent survey to measure end-user satisfaction with vendors, products, services, support, training and innovation. This study evaluates the performance of the vendors analyzed at a detailed level in the Outbound Solutions Product and Market Report. This year s survey reveals that participants were most satisfied with their outbound solution provider s ongoing service and support, which earned the highest average category score, 4.21 (on a scale of 5.0), with professional services coming in second with an average rating of The Report presents the full results of this study. The Outbound Solutions Product and Market Report is the most timely and complete guide to the outbound solutions market, providing an in-depth analysis of this IT sector and eight of the leading and contending outbound solution providers: Avaya, Connect First, Five9, Genesys, Interactive Intelligence, Noble Systems, Presence Technology and Unify (formerly Siemens Enterprise Communications).

DMG predicts that the outbound solutions market will grow by 5% in 2014 and 2015, 5.5% in 2016 and 2017, and 5% in Before investing in an outbound solution, buyers should research other users experiences: DMG advises buyers to consider other users experiences when looking to implement a new or upgraded outbound dialing solution.
