OMAHA, NE., September 9, 2014 – West, a leading provider of technology-enabled communication services, announced today that Gartner, Inc. has positioned the company in the Leaders Quadrant of its August 28, 2014, “Magic Quadrant for Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), Multiregional” for a third consecutive year. The recognition is based on West’s ability to execute and the Company’s completeness of vision in the UCaaS space.

“We believe this recognition from Gartner, for the third year running, is a strong indicator of the value that our clients continue to experience with our powerful applications and services, our expertise in deploying Unified Communications solutions and the outstanding support that we are able to deliver in the rapidly evolving UC market,” said Todd Strubbe, President of West’s Unified Communications business segment. “We remain focused on providing our clients with the industry’s best cloud-based communication applications and services. West recognizes that empowering our clients to transform the ways they do business, which can give them new competitive advantages, requires that we aggressively reinvent both our products and the enveloping services.”

According to Gartner: “Vendors in the Leaders quadrant have been delivering complete UCaaS solutions for more than a year, have clients with more than 1,000 subscribers and have more than 100,000 total endpoints in service.
