History of Invention

In 1973, Aspect fundamentally changed Continental Airlines' business model for customer communications, powering the first call center flight booking system with the industry's first intelligent Automatic Call Distributor (ACD). Soon thereafter came two more industry-expanding technology firsts from Aspect – an automated dialer and a workforce management solution.

Today we're continuing to build on past achievements by fusing cutting-edge unified communications and collaboration enterprise technologies with next-generation customer contact, helping our clients deliver a truly differentiated customer experience that bolsters consumer loyalty and improves business outcomes.


Leveraging a global alliance with Microsoft for over a decade, Aspect is uniting the contact center with unified communications and collaboration platforms such as Microsoft SharePoint, Dynamics CRM and Lync for more informed, effective customer interactions.
