The United States of America is one of the top countries when it comes to the use of CTI. It also has CTI hotspots, or states where CTI use is prevalent.

Two-thirds of the state have become urban meccas in recent years.

Leading Georgia industries include logistics and communications, service, real estate and tourism. Its is a strong economy due, in part, to Atlanta’s alpha city / world center status. As a global economic center, the city affects the economy of the rest of the state.
Fifteen Fortune 500 companies call Georgia their home. This includes Coca-Cola, Home Depot, UPS, Honeywell and Delta Air Lines. Good business is business as usual in the state – and CTI is very much integral to it.
