The public cloud is a really good solution that allows us to be agile with our customers so whenever there is peak volume, there is never a doubt that we can bring on new agents very quickly with a quality solution. What’s important to Datamark is that it really comes down to customer experience and it’s through our collaboration with Avaya that we provide this consistently.”
