Sykes Enterprises, Incorporated Adopts New Branding For Its At-Home Customer Contact Service

TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 28, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sykes Enterprises, Incorporated (Nasdaq:SYKE) ("SYKES" or the "Company"), a global leader in providing comprehensive outsourced customer contact management solutions and services in the business process outsourcing (BPO) arena, announced today that its at-home agent service line has been rebranded SYKES Home powered by Alpine Access.

The branding, which includes a new logo, reflects SYKES' acquisition last year of Alpine Access, an industry leader in the virtual call center model, in which customer service professionals work out of their homes. SYKES Home employs thousands of at-home agents throughout North America, offering clients increased staffing flexibility and access to an expanded pool of skilled labor.

"Alpine Access has been the leading innovator in the virtual call center space, developing a best-in-class platform for recruiting, training and managing at-home agents. As the new name signifies, SYKES Home is now proud to couple Alpine Access great innovation with SYKES' great service as an offering to all of our clients," said Chuck Sykes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sykes Enterprises, Incorporated. "SYKES Home provides the flexibility and quality of service that businesses need to thrive in today's competitive global marketplace."
