Announcing the 2022 Genesys Customer Innovation Awards Finalists


The past few years have challenged us all. And many organizations rose to workplace challenges by prioritizing innovation in the contact center — accelerating their plans to adopt digital and cloud technologies. This year’s Genesys Customer Innovation Awards nominations prove this — with many nominees citing the COVID-19 pandemic as an impetus for a move to a cloud contact center and digital transformation.

In addition to implementing cloud and digital technologies like artificial intelligence (AI)-based bots, many companies have taken strides to enhance both the customer experience (CX) and employee engagement. Increasingly, Genesys customers are embracing the importance of empathy in customer experience – training their contact center staff to be more empathetic to customers. Many also understand the importance of prioritizing employee experience (EX) and satisfaction — with several nominees offering flexible work arrangements and leveraging workforce engagement management capabilities and other tools to streamline contact center efficiency.

After weeks of review and analysis, we’ve determined the finalists of the 17th annual Genesys Customer Innovation Awards. We’re so proud of the enduring success our customers and partners have achieved — and their commitment to delivering exceptional CX and EX.
