SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- inContact (NASDAQ: SAAS), the leading provider of cloud contact center software and contact center agent optimization tools, today announced that a major state agency has selected inContact to improve the quality and efficiency of its customer service delivery. The state division is moving from an aging premise solution to the cloud in order to unify operations across three locations with over 300 contact center agents.
