The report evaluates vendors through a series of stringent criteria related to the ability to execute and completeness of vision.
In the report, Gartner Research VP TJ Singh notes, "Leaders demonstrate market-defining vision and the ability to execute against that vision through CM contact center BPO services, a superior market share (among the top 10 providers in regions where they compete), and solid references for CM contact center BPO services worldwide, including a cross section of vertical industries. Leaders also have superior investments in innovative CM contact center BPO service offerings, business/pricing models and service delivery models. They have a superior understanding of client needs and of current market conditions, and they are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the CM contact center BPO market across multiple regions. The CM contact center BPO service providers in this Leaders quadrant generally also have strong global and regional service delivery operations and deep technology to leverage, and they deliver above-average customer experience."
Singh forecasts continued growth and opportunities for the industry, stating, "The worldwide CM contact center BPO market is forecast to grow steadily at a 5.2% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2013 through 2018. By the end of 2018, Gartner estimates the CM contact center BPO industry will achieve a market size of $42.4 billion.
