Genysys Review

Now a wholly owned subsidiary of the French voice and data Communications Company, Alcatel-Lucent SA, Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories was founded in October 1990 to prove that companies could provide better service to their customers by bringing together computers and telecommunications. That insight made Genesys a pioneer in computer-telephony integration (CTI). It also established Genesys as one of the first companies to understand that technology integration could solve a pervasive business problem: poor customer service.

What Genysys does

Among the company’s many offerings is support for a virtual call center. Genesys allows you to integrate on an as-needed basis experts outside the center (who can solve customer issues) and back-office workers and remote agents (to increase coverage during peak times).

The Genesys SIP Server lets businesses efficiently integrate agents, branch employees and experts anytime, anywhere, regardless of their location or telephony infrastructure. Presence technology that shows the status, location and availability of this widely dispersed talent pool lets you use these resources most effectively.
