Orebro, Sweden, and Lisbon, Portugal, May 15th, 2012— Altitude Software, a global leader in contact center technology, today announces that it has started to deliver cloud contact center solutions in Scandinavia, following the acquisition of a majority of Sweden-based Software-as-a-Service provider ASP Nordic from private investors.
