GAITHERSBURG, Md., Nov. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BroadSoft, Inc. (NASDAQ:BSFT), a global unified communication software as a service (UCaaS) leader, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. as a Visionary in its 2016 Magic Quadrant for Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS), North America report.

The Gartner CCaaS Magic Quadrant defines Visionaries as, “suppliers with strong multichannel product and service capabilities and a clear strategy for sales, marketing and business development. They differentiate themselves by adding unique functionality and/or delivery capabilities.”
