Lisbon, Portugal, September 20, 2016 – Altitude (, a global provider of omnichannel solutions to deliver great customer experiences, today announced that it has been identified as a sample vendor in the Gartner “Hype Cycle for Contact Center Infrastructure, 2016” report. Altitude was named in the “Universal Queue Management” and “Private Cloud Communications” categories.

On Universal Queue Management, Gartner says that “companies should evaluate opportunities to use universal queuing to leverage consistent routing and prioritization rules across all contact types and for supporting omnichannel customer interactions”.
