Talkdesk named a Leader in 2024 IDC MarketScape for Contact Center–as-a-Service Applications Software

According to the report, Talkdesk customers appreciate the range of capabilities and ease of use of the product

SAN FRANCISCO — June 26, 2024 Talkdesk®, Inc., a global provider of artificial intelligence (AI)-powered customer experience (CX) technology that serves enterprises of all sizes, today announced it has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Contact Center–as-a-Service (CCaaS) Applications Software 2024 Vendor Assessment [doc #US52302923 June 2024].

The IDC MarketScape evaluated technology providers that offer CCaaS capabilities for contact centers and agents with standalone AI-based products and/or products that leverage AI in such a way that they are differentiated from similar non-AI–enhanced products, integration capabilities to other contact centers, or adjacent functional markets and data management. According to IDC analysis and buyer perception, Talkdesk was positioned in the Leaders Category.

According to the report, “Talkdesk customers appreciate the range of capabilities and ease of use of the product. While AI remains an aspiration for many organizations, Talkdesk customers spoke positively of the capabilities being in the platform waiting for when they were ready to absorb it on their own personal road map. Talkdesk’s AI approach was to build the company’s own capabilities for efficiencies and to minimize compatibility issues. This includes generative AI (GenAI).”

The report also noted, regarding Talkdesk, that “Industry-specific CCaaS products are a rarity in the market and offer a true differentiation for those users seeking greater specificity for their industry. This includes industry-tuned AI models and integrations to industry-specific core application systems, such as Epic in healthcare, and industry-specific compliance and regulations. Customers reported ease of working with the vendor for added capabilities.”
