SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- inContact, the leading provider of cloud contact center software and agent optimization tools, announced today that TMC has named the inContact CRM Plug-in Agent as a recipient of a 2012 IP Contact Center Technology Pioneer Award from Customer Interaction Solutions, the premier publication in CRM, contact center and teleservices industries since 1982.
inContact's CRM Plug-in Agent is a unique, non-intrusive interface that optimizes agent activities.
