CGS Named in the 2018 Gartner Report: Market Guide for Key Customer Management BPO Service Providers

New York, NY – March 7, 2018 – CGS, a global provider of business applications, enterprise learning and outsourcing services, today announced it was included in Gartner’s annual “Market Guide for Key Customer Management BPO Service Providers.”[1] The Market Guide “reviews key service providers managing marketing, sales and customer service processes. Sourcing and vendor management leaders should use this guide to identify providers that align to their business needs.”

According to Gartner, “discussions continue to shift from cost containment and labor arbitrage to the delivery of enhanced customer experience, automation, value-added services (such as multichannel and analytics services), scalability, quality of service and more innovative ways of addressing the customers and the increasing levels of complexity in their business.” Meeting the changing business needs of the market, companies are turning to business process outsourcing (BPO) providers to scale operations, access best-of-breed processes and technologies and enhance the customer experience.

“CGS is continually improving its overall customer support to our valued global clients,” said CGS president and CEO Phil Friedman. “We deliver proactive services, addressing technical and customer care issues, while also delivering a thorough, personalized service to create an enhanced customer experience. By consistently improving the process, deploying innovative technologies and encouraging creative thinking by our associate, we truly partner with our clients to deliver best-in-class services. In our view, being named for the second year in a row by Gartner in this Market Guide corroborates the value we bring to clients globally.” 

With a base of thousands of multilingual, dedicated call center agents located in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, CGS currently supports many of the world's industry-leading brands, including global retailers, healthcare providers, technology and telecom providers and global hospitality brands. CGS's innovative, scalable and flexible business process outsourcing solutions include traditional BPO, technical support, customer care, outbound telesales and channel enablement and back office support, including finance and accounting.
