IT'S MIGHTY SIMPLE - AND SIMPLY MIGHTY
Customer communication performance to create great customer relationships.
Genesys Cloud was built from the ground up to deliver seamless conversations, eliminating the need for multiple systems and applications.
It is an all-in-one solution that provides a unified experience across all channels. Genesys Cloud uses a common routing engine for all interaction types, so you can easily control agent workload and mix, while ensuring that conversations are routed to the agents best equipped to handle them.
Cloud-PBX / UC
Agents receive interactions from every channel in a single and consistent interface, allowing them to easily mix real-time (voice calls and chats) and asynchronous conversations (text messages, email, and social), all while reducing training efforts and user errors.
Provide your customers with a conversational self-service experience.
Provide around-the-clock self-service and agent-assisted service via IVR flows that you can manage yourself with an intuitive drag-and-drop editor. Configure prompts, data overlays, submenus and transmissions to meet your business needs - all without the need for professional service or downtime. Deliberate supports you with expertise and best practice experience.
Choose between integrated automatic speech recognition or natural language understanding integration. And you can be confident that our IVR has the security features you need to comply with regulations, so you can securely process credit card payments and meet privacy requirements.
Optimize your campaigns while ensuring agent productivity,
reduce costs and increase contact rates in the process.
An integrated automated outbound dialer has the features, power, scalability, and flexibility you need to increase campaign effectiveness. Accurately detect and filter answering machines, busy signals, unanswered calls, disconnected numbers, and fax machines, and configure campaigns with multiple dialing modes. Help your agents spend less time waiting and more time connecting with customers.
Custom Dashboards and Reports
Get the information and insights you need to run and optimize your business - from one place in real time.
With the Genesys Cloud solution, you have virtually unlimited reporting capabilities. Multi-layered, dynamic views bring together metrics from every channel - inbound and outbound. Compare real-time and historical data in a single view to see how your current performance compares to the past. Or filter, save, and export unique views in seconds. Drill down for deeper details with a single click. Configure custom dashboards in minutes, and use package integrations or open APIs to export data to a business intelligence database.
Whether you're on the road in the call center with an iPad or working at your computer, it's easy to stay connected and in control. Set alerts and get notified when key metrics aren't being met, so you never miss an important detail.
Workforce Management (WFM)
Emotional employee engagement as an important part of your CX strategy.
Genesys Cloud workforce engagement capabilities boost employee productivity with integrated artificial intelligence (AI) and automation capabilities in the areas of quality management, voice and digital recording, workforce management and employee performance - all from a single intuitive application. The Genesys Cloud solution takes just 30 seconds to capture your historical data and combine it with more than 20 predictive methods to predict and track overall interaction performance. A comprehensive view across all channels ensures you can thoroughly evaluate interactions to provide effective coaching and performance reviews for your agents.
Flexible Voice Services
Simplicity of communication is crucial for your business. That's why you need flexible options for voice connectivity.
Customer's own Carrier
Bring Your Own Carrier (BYOC) lets you use the phone carrier of your choice. The Genesys Cloud solution works with third-party providers - whether it's an on-premises PBX or a cloud carrier - so you can make the most of your existing relationships and investments.
BYOC is available in two different variants:
On-premise or cloud, depending on how the connection is to be set up.
Genesys as a Carrier
Keep things simple, fast and hardware-free with the Internet-based telephony service, Genesys Cloud Voice. Get 100% cloud communications - with Genesys as your carrier. Port existing numbers or purchase new numbers directly from the web interface to make and receive calls instantly. Usage-based pricing has no channel limits, no minimum commitments, and a flexible month-to-month contract. High-quality SIP trunking eliminates the physical connection to a phone company and all associated hardware and cabling overhead.
WebRTC and SIP Softphone
Set up voice calls for new agents, teams, or locations in an instant - without MPLS lines or the need for a VPN. With the WebRTC softphone, agents can make and receive calls instantly with just a browser and a headset, without the need for additional software or hardware. WebRTC technology provides a secure voice connection over the open Internet.
If you prefer to keep audio and signaling local, you can install the Genesys Cloud SIP Softphone application, which runs on Windows-based computers and can be used even when logged out of the contact center solution itself. It has all the benefits of a hardware phone - with added portability.
Business telephony and more
Unify all of your company's communication channels. By adding Genesys Cloud Communicate workstations, you can merge traditional business telephony features like voicemail and group calling with real-time collaboration tools like video conferencing, screen sharing, team chat, profile-driven enterprise directory and document management. And with iOS and Android apps, employees can collaborate anytime, anywhere. It's all native and tightly integrated - in a single solution.
Anytime, anywhere collaboration. It's all natively integrated - in a single solution.
Build or Buy?
With Genesys, this doesn't have to be a decision.
From straightforward to sophisticated, the ways you can deploy and use the Genesys Cloud solution are virtually unlimited. It's flexible enough to meet all your business needs because it's both an application and a platform.
Use out-of-the-box applications to get up and running quickly. Use them as is, or customize IVR, routing, recording, dashboards, and more to meet your needs.
Use the platform to build your own customer service ecosystem. For more specialized customizations, you can draw on a full set of open REST APIs, as well as documentation and the dedicated community of Genesys Cloud developers.
Expand your application. Whether you build or buy. Just add pre-built integrations. The Genesys AppFoundry Marketplace offers over 300 out-of-the-box integrations, and the variety of options continues to grow.
Easy Integration into Existing Systems
Say goodbye to tedious service efforts. Pre-built CRM integrations are available for all major systems, including Salesforce. These out-of-the-box integrations are quick to deploy, easy to configure, and offer intelligent routing for all interaction types, automatic logging, and pop-up windows. Present information to your agents in scripts or in existing screens in your CRM system, for example.
Make routing decisions based on data from your CRM system or a third-party system that stores data and uses web services. Agents can even work directly in your CRM interface or any browser-based application, using Genesys Cloud's embedded call controls and features.
Keep everything in place accurately and up to date, without manual intervention. Populate and synchronize user profiles with Active Directory, HR systems, or any SQL database to automatically synchronize bidirectional data between your systems and Genesys Cloud users.
The Genesys Cloud solution also integrates with popular single sign-on services to make access even easier.
BOTs in Customer Service
Not science fiction, but an important complementary building block for providing optimum customer service at all times and in every situation.
Use cases that were mapped in the past on simple, mostly DTMF-based IVR systems or simple FAQ's are being ported to BOT solutions and further application scenarios in the environment of standardized processes are being sought. The fact is that today, BOT solutions are very capable of automating interaction processes and, to a large extent, can serve them without the intervention of an agent. Genesys AI supports self-service bots for personalized, customer-oriented service.
Deploying bots in isolation results in disconnected customer experiences. Genesys orchestrates and measures bot experiences with built-in capabilities or third-party bots from Google, Amazon, IBM, and others. When our bots send conversations to agents, they do so for seamless connection with full context.
Using a dedicated bot on each channel
Genesys offers AI flexibility. Maximize your investment with features that are compatible with other chat bot platforms from Google, Amazon, IBM, and others. Whether you're developing a feature for voice bots, chat bots, or messaging bots, the Genesys platform allows you to build once and reuse on any channel.
Deploy agents at the right time
Bots work best when they are well matched with human agents. If needed, chat conversations can be seamlessly handed off to a live agent. In this case, your agents also get access to all the information collected by the bot, including contextual information.
Provide a full experience
The Genesys platform gives you simple tools to create and measure the entire customer journey. And that doesn't just apply to bot interactions. You can manage the entire customer experience across marketing, sales, and service. Isolated solutions hurt your business. Bring it all together with Genesys.
Build on a platform that adapts
With an open platform, you can link underlying technologies and synchronize data across channels. This gives you new opportunities to optimize the customer and employee journey with native and third-party software solutions. An adaptable platform grows with you - no matter how your business priorities change.
With an integration from Genesys Cloud to Amazon Lex, bots can interact with customers in conversation. This integration allows PureCloud to invoke Lex chatbot actions in Architect such as call, message, and chat flows.
With a Genesys Cloud integration to Google Dialogflow, bots can communicate with customers. Use the Google Dialogflow integration to invoke Dialogflow bots in Architect.
Genesys Dialog Engine
The Genesys Dialog Engine allows bots to interact with customers in dialog. Use this native implementation to invoke Dialog Engine bots in Architect.
Genesys Predictive Engagement
Optimize your website for you and your visitors
Predictive Engagement analyzes the behavior of visitors on your website in real time and identifies the right moment for a proactive interaction via a web chat, screen pop or content offers. This is done using data, context and website behavior.
The visitor is then connected to an agent or optionally a chat bot that can proactively guide them through the (purchase) process. The AI received in the solution learns from the visits and continuously optimizes itself.
Increase your online conversion rates through intelligent automation
AI-powered website personalization makes users feel valued - and your sales reps are relieved. Plus, conversion rates can increase when visitors get assistance when they need it most.
Optimizing personalized content by combining AI with agents
Improve the user experience through automation. Pass interactions to a live agent at the right time to increase visitor satisfaction and personalize the experience.
Optimize best practices through machine learning
Use available data to build a decision model that improves over time. Make changes as you gain new insights and adapt to customers' changing desires and behaviors.
