"With Uniphore technology, we can do that and more, by providing actionable insights through interactions analytics.

"Given the complexities faced by many organizations in transforming their customers' experience, and the rapidly evolving landscape, you need vendors to work together to deliver solutions that aim to seamlessly bring together the best of their technology and people capabilities. This NTT DATA--Uniphore partnership is a step in this direction."
