"In order to expand our service offering and provide a customized solution to our customers, we reached out to our M6 platform representative for enhanced call center tools. We needed a more robust ACD solution and they suggested CTI Group. CTI Group's ACD reporting solution has everything we need. It was seamlessly integrated and came complete with easy administration tools, tagging, cataloging, commenting and archival. The ACD reporting tool gave our customers what they required to monitor and manage their workforce, with absolutely no geographical limitations. The solution was exactly what we needed. CTI Group even helped demo and sell the products to our customers." said Juan Carlos Canto, CFO, Nexogy, a subsidiary of LD Telecom, Inc.
