Genesys Announces Partnership with Generation-e to Strengthen Mid-Market Offer
SYDNEY — 17 December, 2015 — Genesys (http://www.genesys.com/anz), the market leader in omnichannel customer experience (CX) and contact centre solutions, has signed a partnership with Generation-e to deliver richly integrated collaboration and communications solutions to mid-sized companies in Australia. The partnership will enable customers to combine Microsoft’s Skype for Business solutions with the Genesys Customer Experience Platform.
The partnership forms part of a wider strategic direction for Genesys as it expands in to the mid-market and across a wide range of industries in Australia, including local government, not for profit, legal, accounting and financial services.
According to recent research, 45 per cent of Australia’s mid-size companies intend to increase their productivity spend by 12 per cent over the next year, which includes additional investments in customer service and technology. The Genesys and Generation-e partnership will enable both companies to offer truly integrated customer experience solutions, while reducing operational costs, to this fast growing sector.
“We are excited to announce our partnership with Generation-e, who are specialists in the mid-market and share a particular strength in Microsoft unified communications solutions,” said Vaughan Webster, Channel Director, Genesys Australia and New Zealand.
“For Genesys, which had an R&D team working in Microsoft to prepare for the Skype for Business launch, partnering with Generation-e takes our business to new heights– we have a shared interest and depth of understanding in the technology and omnichannel customer experience,” he added.
Genesys is one of the first enterprises to bring contact centre capabilities together with unified communication solutions from Microsoft. The integration enables customers and organisations to seamlessly engage through video, voice and instant message, as well as transfer seamlessly between these channels without interruption.
The partnership offers mid-size companies with Genesys omnichannel journey management capabilities alongside Generation-e’s unified communications expertise, empowering contact centre agents to collaborate proactively with any available subject matter expert with the right skill level throughout the organisation to speed resolution of customer enquiries.
Biagio LaRosa, CEO at Generation-e, said the partnership further enhances Generation-e’s position as a key provider of customer experience solutions.
“As our business grew, we identified the need to find the right customer experience platform to meet the growing complexity of demands of our clients, now and in the future.”
“Not only does Genesys provide the platform support we need, its unwavering focus on the customer journey through call centre solutions aligns perfectly with our own approach. Couple that with our mutual Microsoft relationships and it is a very strong story for our customers indeed,” Mr. LaRosa said.
