TIS THE SEASON when it is time to reflect and anticipate. That’s what I do as the year comes to an end. I think about what was and what will be. The end of one year and the start of another seems to naturally inspire this.
Contact Center Pipeline had a very good 2021. I am extremely proud of our work this year. Navigating through a typical contact center year is challenging enough, without the effects of a pandemic on our operations and staff. I appreciate all the hard work our Pipeline staff and writers have given. They help us through our challenges to offer the best customer experiences we can.
Also, I thank our sponsors who support us. We appreciate all their efforts to continue to provide leading edge products and services.
Finally, I thank our readers, without whom, everything is irrelevant. I thank you for your loyalty and support.
I hope that you enjoy this time with your family and friends. I wish you all the best for the holiday season and for 2022.
