You value your customers' time — prove it to them

When you route calls to agents who don’t have the right expertise, customer experience suffers. Customers have to move through multiple queues, sit on hold and repeat their issues with each new touchpoint. This conveys that you don’t value your customers’ most precious resource — their time.

Automatic call distribution (ACD) software helps your inbound call center avoid these mistakes. With skills-based and intelligent routing, calls follow a logical path. Customers are grateful because you’ve saved them time. And because agents connect with the customers they’re best suited to help, your teams are happier, too.

Boost business with an ACD that's simple and powerful

Today's contact centers need to be equipped to handle far more than phone calls. People expect businesses to be available on the channels they use every day. This means your contact center needs to take on messaging apps, social media, chat and more.

Successful customer experiences hinge on effectively managing communications across all those channels. With an ACD from Genesys, you can follow the conversation anytime, anywhere.


All-in-one inbound call center software

Your ACD needs a few other pieces to run well. Connect your IVR, CRM system and workforce engagement tools to strengthen your ACD. Many ACD providers package these separate components and sell them as a single product.

With Genesys, your ACD runs on an all-in-one platform. Each component — ACD, IVR, outbound, quality management, workforce management and more — is built from the ground up to work together. This means simplicity, speed, cost-effectiveness and efficiency.

Intelligent automated routing

Single ACD for voice and digital communications

Follow the conversation everywhere with technology built to handle any channel. A common ACD routing engine turns calls, emails, chats and social comments into a seamless conversation.

Give employees insight from past interactions across channels — in a single interface. That means your agents have all the context they need for smooth interactions, all on one screen.

Unified communication tools

Work-from-anywhere call center agents

Today, many companies are making distributed and remote agents a key part of their customer experience strategy. An ACD from Genesys makes it easy to create one virtual contact center.

Your agents can work from different offices, countries and companies (outsourcers), and at home. You get a unified virtual team that’s easy to manage, plus all the benefits that come with more diverse skills and broader geographical reach.

Rock solid contact center infrastructure

Nothing wreaks havoc on your contact center quite like an outage. When systems are compromised, you lose money and your brand suffers.

Keep the lines of customer communications open with a dependable ACD. Genesys provides businesses of all sizes enterprise-grade security, reliability and scale. You get to spend time taking care of your customers and people instead of worrying about the systems they use.

"In a world where customer service expectations are changing at lightning speed, Genesys gives us a serious advantage."
