rost & Sullivan is hosting the inaugural Customer Contact Summit in Jakarta today - Bringing fresh insights from the region and addressing specific issues of Indonesia’s customer contact market, Frost & Sullivan hosted the Customer Contact Indonesia at Mandarin Oriental hotel in Jakarta.
Jakarta, Indonesia, October 6, 2010 – Positioned as a growth segment the Contact Centre Applications market in Indonesia recorded revenue of US$9.2million in 2009 and is projected to hit US$28 million by 2016.
The Indonesian contact center applications market was largely sustained by the domestic demand in 2009. Frost & Sullivan notes that the demand in 2009 was largely fueled by the limited number of expansions or upgrade deals that the industry saw rather than from new deployments. This is believed to be an effect of hesitation to spend on new deployments during uncertain economic times.
On the other hand, global contact center vendors continued to make in-roads into the country by strengthening their partner network. This move is expected to reap some returns in the mid-term.

The rising demand from local consumers coupled with the contact centre operators’ increasing maturity will see this fast paced market rise to a more competitive level field amongst its regional counterparts.”
