Genesys Cloud continues to disrupt the contact center industry by delivering innovation to companies of all sizes, everywhere, from its future-proof platform.
We believe that’s why Genesys is recognized as a Leader in the new November 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Contact Center as a Service1. With the furthest positioning on the completeness of vision axis, and what we believe to be unmatched execution momentum, Genesys feels this provides further validation that contact centers — all over the world — are increasingly turning to the Genesys CloudTM platform as they navigate their way forward to address changing customer needs and work environments.
Check out the Gartner November 2020 Critical Capabilities for CCaaS2 report to see if Genesys Cloud supports the use cases and critical capabilities most important to your organization. In the report, Gartner recommends its clients, “Focus on CCaaS solutions that leverage native functionality, or are accessed through provider marketplaces that span all four functionality pillars of great customer service — getting connected, process orchestration, knowledge and insight, and resource management.”
We agree. Customers tell us they want a CCaaS platform that addresses all four pillars in a way that helps them:
We feel the ability of Genesys Cloud to uniquely meet these requirements is consistent with it receiving high scores in the Gartner November 2020 Critical Capabilities for CCaaS report. Genesys Cloud received higher scores for six of 12 critical capabilities evaluated (the other six remained the same) in comparison to the 2019 scores.
In terms of staying fresh and innovative, we believe the Customer Engagement Center use case is becoming increasingly important to address rapidly changing customers and work environments. Customers rely more on digital channels; maintaining context across channels is a must. So is keeping agents engaged and optimized across channels.
We’re pleased to see the Genesys Cloud Customer Engagement Center use case score higher from last year — and that Genesys scored third highest in this use case in 2020, with a 3.62 out of 5.
Gartner evaluates vendors across certain critical capabilities for each use case. Per our understanding from the report, the three highest weighted critical capabilities for the Customer Engagement Center use case are Multichannel Contact Management, Workforce Engagement Management and Application Marketplace Integration.
Multichannel Contact Management
We believe the above-mentioned recognition reflects our commitment to help customers execute digital transformation through the continuous delivery of innovation across digital (and voice) channels — inbound and outbound, self-service and agent-assisted. And through enabling deep, open integration with their greater customer experience ecosystem. Digital and artificial intelligence (AI) are two top areas of focus for Genesys from an innovation standpoint.
Workforce Engagement Management
Workforce engagement management (WEM) is another major focus of innovation at Genesys. We believe the rapid, significant progress made over the past year is reflected as well. This includes advancements in transcription and sentiment analysis. And innovation is only going to accelerate, especially in the areas of employee and resource management.
Application Marketplace Integration
The Genesys AppFoundry makes it possible for Genesys Cloud customers to tap into the greater customer experience ecosystem — quickly and easily — by offering a marketplace with a wide range of pre-built apps and other helpful resources. These are developed by customers, partners and Genesys development staff. We feel the extent of our AppFoundry Marketplace, and how customers use it, led to our recognition in this area, too.
A Powerful Platform and Partner You Can Trust — Anywhere
In addition to robust all-in-one CCaaS solution, continuous innovation, a platform to build on and the ability to tap into a vast customer experience ecosystem, the native Genesys Cloud architecture offers a level of trust — security, reliability and global scale — today’s always-on customer engagement centers simply must have. We believe the recognition in this report clearly reflects this.
Gratitude and Continuous Improvement
We’re extremely grateful for this further recognition from Gartner. However, we don’t take anything for granted. We’ll continue to accelerate innovation and progress on behalf of our customers as we pursue our Experience as a ServiceSM vision, so that your customers feel remembered, heard and understood.
