“Investment in forward-thinking CX solutions is paramount and our vision is very much shared by the team behind Digital Tribe. We’re proud to be working with a local business and further cementing our growing presence in South Africa following the recent opening of our new Cape Town operation.”
Kobus van der Westhuizen, CEO of Digital Tribe, said:
“We’re proud to team up with such a well-established and respected customer outsourcing organisation. Ascensos is a world-class provider with a growing global footprint and many years of expertise in the CX arena.
