Lisbon, Portugal, June 9th, 2008 – Altitude Software, a leading independent contact center solutions vendor, today announced the availability of the Altitude IP Contact Center 3.5 Release. The latest version deploys new SIP-based functionalities to achieve operational cost reductions and enforce effective monitoring in the Contact Center.

The new release enables further standardization and virtualization over VoIP, a rising trend among the best contact centers. In a recent Gartner report (Companies Should Use IP Telephony to “Virtualize” Their Contact Centers, April 2007) analyst Steve Blood states “An IP telephony architecture provides two important functions: It enables companies to distribute the access points of telephone calls to the contact center, to ensure that there’s no single point of failure; It provides an improved level of flexibility in the deployment and management of customer service advisors across the enterprise.”

The Altitude IP Contact Center is a complete modular software suite putting together the Altitude uCI (Unified Customer Interaction) multichannel software solution and the Altitude vBox, a contact center optimized soft switch. The latest version brings to Contact Centers the benefits of SIP trunking, centralized voice recording over IP; and outbound voice automation, enabling a wealth of new features and adding support for a number of hardware platforms.

“The Altitude Software IP Contact Center 3.5 is the latest evolution on our ongoing commitment to deliver flexibility, control and cost-effectiveness to contact centers worldwide” stated Miguel Lopes, Vice-President Marketing and Product Management at Altitude Software. “Customers can benefit from new SIP trunking options to reduce communications costs and new voice recording capabilities to maintain high-quality service. The new features add to the Altitude uCI’s solution numerous benefits, from the ease of implementation to the capability to leverage existing investments”
