Calling All Innovators: 2024 Genesys Customer Innovation Awards Nominations Open

Customer experience (CX) is no longer the only competitive differentiator for businesses. Today, the employee experience (EX) is just as important. And organizations that seamlessly blend CX and EX through people, processes and technology are exceeding expectations. Their insight to uplift both customers and employees fuels retention, loyalty and business value.

As CX and EX reach new heights of interconnection, we are thrilled to celebrate those leading the charge with the 2024 Genesys Customer Innovation Awards. Now in its 19th year, the Customer Innovation Awards recognize organizations of all sizes for propelling experiences.

A Look Back: 2023 Customer Innovation Awards Winners

Genesys customers and partners made huge strides in customer and employee experience in 2023 — improving agent productivity and satisfaction, successfully deploying bots in the contact center, and much more. Here’s a look at what a few 2023 award winners achieved.

After implementing the Genesys Cloud™ platform and Workforce Engagement Management, AdaptHealth experienced a 60% improvement in agent productivity, 19% increase in service levels, 84% reduction in abandonment rates — and saw average agent quality scores hit 95%.
