Melville, NY, August 05, 2010 --(PR.com)-- CosmoCom, the global leader in Contact Center Consolidation 2.0, announced that leading Indian call center outsourcer, Epicenter Technologies, is improving their collections services utilizing the InstaCC cloud-based Hosted contact center offering from Tata Communications. Epicenter is using the CosmoCom-powered customer communication platform to support their blended inbound and outbound collections projects for their clients, which include many Fortune 300 companies. Epicenter Technologies Pvt Ltd (ETPL) is part of the US $2.4 billion Kalyani Group.
