TEMPE, AZ, Jun 03, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX News Network) -- Direct Alliance, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TeleTech Holdings,
Inc. (NASDAQ: TTEC) and a leading business process outsourcing
provider of inside sales and marketing solutions, today announced
that it has been named a finalist for outstanding sales achievements
at the 2008 American Business Awards.
Direct Alliance was named a finalist for two prestigious Stevie(R)
Awards, the Best Marketing Campaign and the Best Human Resources Team.
The awards will be jointly presented by Selling Power magazine and
the Stevie Awards, which have been hailed as "the business world's own
Oscars." Winners will be announced during a gala banquet at Marriott
Marquis in New York City on June 12.
Direct Alliance attributes its success as a finalist for best
marketing campaign to the strategic integration of its analytics,
electronic direct marketing, and inside sales capabilities. Deploying
a management program to deepen accounts, using Web chat to integrate
sales channels, and driving proactive initiatives to retain accounts
all boosted sales performance across different client programs.
"We have much to celebrate with these important nominations," said
Judi Hand, president and general manager of Direct Alliance. "I am
very grateful to all of our employees and clients whose hard work and
support has led to ongoing recognition for us, and we look forward to
