DALY CITY, Calif., July 3, 2012 – Genesys today announced that market research firm Gartner, Inc.. places the company in the Leaders Quadrant of its report, “Magic Quadrant for Contact Center Infrastructure, Worldwide” published June 27, 2012 and authored by Drew Kraus, Steve Blood and Geoff Johnson. The evaluation in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant is based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

According to the report, “Leaders are high-viability vendors with broad portfolios, significant market shares, broad geographic coverage, a clear vision of how contact center needs will evolve and a proven track record of delivering contact center products. They are well-positioned with their current product portfolio and likely to continue delivering leading products. Leaders do not necessarily offer a best-of-breed solution for every customer requirement. However, overall their products are strong and often have some exceptional capabilities. Additionally, these vendors provide solutions that present relatively low risk.”

Through its customer service platform and solutions, Genesys helps companies deliver an exceptional customer experience and differentiate themselves from the competition. Genesys provides contact center, Interactive Voice Response (IVR), workforce optimization and analytics, web, mobile and social customer service solutions, using a flexible approach that allows companies to choose between an on premise, cloud or hybrid implementation.
