Comprehensive Set of Contact Center Offerings Bring Speed-to-Market, Simplicity and Innovation for Companies of All Sizes

DALY CITY, CA, November 19, 2013 — Genesys (, a leading provider of customer experience and contact center solutions, today announced three new contact center editions—Premier Edition for small to mid-sized contact centers, Business Edition for mid-sized contact centers, and Enterprise Edition for large contact centers. These comprehensive offerings integrate technologies and expertise from the companies that Genesys recently acquired: AngelUtopy and SoundBite Communications.

Industry Analysts and Customers Applaud the New Product Offerings

“This is a major competitive step for Genesys.

The dual-pronged approach sets the stage for higher levels of growth.” 

“The days of the proprietary Automatic Call Distribution system being the only vehicle through which a company manages customer interactions will soon become a by-gone era,” said Keith Dawson, Principal Analyst at Ovum. “These offerings from Genesys afford companies the opportunity to choose from a more flexible and innovative set of customer experience solutions available in streamlined deployment models that clearly delineate between cloud, premise and hybrid solutions to better meet the needs of today’s customer experience leaders.”
