Talkdesk®, Inc., the global customer experience leader for customer-obsessed companies, today embarked on the next phase of growth after two years of significant momentum in executing toward its bold vision to provide a better way for organizations to unlock the promise and potential of great customer service. To mark this new stage in its corporate maturation, Talkdesk unveiled a new logo and tagline – Experience. A better way. – that reflects the company’s commitment to being at the forefront of customer experience (CX) innovation and its focus on empowering customers to build brand trust and loyalty through customized, personal interactions.

Talkdesk’s reimagined logo reflects its commitment to helping companies connect every engagement moment into customer journeys that are personalized, productive and profitable. The bold new corporate identity comprises a fresh purple color palette and updated brand elements, featuring inclusive and diverse visual representations and illustrations that reflect the importance of human connection. The company also relaunched its website in five new languages – Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Portuguese and Spanish, and unveiled a powerful new international advertising campaign.

“Today is about retelling the Talkdesk story in a way that pays tribute to our legacy, embraces our commitment to diversity and giving back, and deeply connects our path forward to the thousands of Talkdesk customers and employees who made what is yet to come possible,” said Kathie Johnson, chief marketing officer, Talkdesk. “Every element of who we are represents the importance of the connection we help companies make with their customers, because every moment matters.”

Since its inception, rapid innovation has been a Talkdesk hallmark – one applauded by both customers and industry leaders, and valued by enterprise customers worldwide.

“Ten years ago, Talkdesk founder Tiago Paiva saw how Salesforce had re-invented the CRM world and realized a similar revolution was imminent for the call center,” said Sheila McGee-Smith, founder and principal analyst, McGee-Smith Analytics, LLC. “Talkdesk has been a significant part of the industry-wide contact center transformation, helping to move the industry toward a true elastic cloud, with all the innovation power that brings for not just customers but the entire customer experience ecosystem.”

We now have customers in every major region of the world who have transformed their end-customers’ experience into an immersive, personalized and profitable journey,” said Tiago Paiva, Talkdesk founder and chief executive officer. “Our cloud-native platform was one of many industry-firsts Talkdesk introduced to the contact center marketplace over its first decade, and our talented

development team is hard at work on the products that will define our next 10 years of audacious innovation.”
