New customers now include more than one hundred companies using integrated virtual agent and contact center solutions in banking, real estate, transportation, healthcare, and financial service sectors.
Customers want powerful, simple tools that allow them to reduce communications complexity and provide a better overall customer experience. Nextiva’s mission has always been to serve customer needs first.
