Frost & Sullivan surveyed over 300 contact center decision makers during March – April, 2010. A web-based survey methodology was used. LiveVox (51 percent) got almost twice as many votes as its nearest competitor (27 percent) in the poll on the number one brand among hosted outbound customer contact solutions.

"Among those who primarily use LiveVox's hosted outbound customer contact solution, 80 percent rate LiveVox as the best brand," says Frost & Sullivan Senior Analyst Michael DeSalles. "With both the strongest overall brand reputation and high customer loyalty, LiveVox garnered the highest brand performance index (BPI) score (10), and is thus recognized as the 'Best Brand of Hosted Outbound Customer Contact Solution.'"

With a loyalty index (LI) score of 0.80, LiveVox stands head and shoulder above the second ranked vendor, which earned an LI score of 0.51, while the third-ranked company obtained an LI score of 0.59.
