Collaborating to fuel cloud adoption
Atos, a global leader in digital transformation providing end-to-end orchestrated hybrid cloud solutions around the world, recently announced a new collaboration with NICE InContact. NICE inContact is one of the leading providers of cloud contact centre software in the world, with the most popular cloud-based customer experience platform available today.
The two companies are partnering to make NICE inContact CXOne the preferred solution for Contact Centre as a Service via Atos. The Atos brand will be delivering the CXOne environment to their installed base of thousands of dedicated contact centre agents around the world, as well as highlighting the solution to new customers.

This offering will provide a single digital-first and unified omni-channel cloud customer experience strategy, complementing the OpenScape Contact Center offering, which Atos will also continue to offer for hosted and on-premises needs.
Around the world today, Contact Centre organisations are moving towards the cloud, in search of greater agility, scalability, and opportunity. According to the CEO of NICE InContact, Paul Jarman, the cloud gives businesses a chance to create immersive customer experiences, building loyalty while driving down costs.
