Boost contact center productivity for any work type

Providing a great customer experience is essential to business success, as research consistently shows. And the billions of dollars invested in front-end technologies prove that companies take this seriously. But what about the back office? Being able to track and trace customer requests throughout their lifecycle within the back office plays a critical role in the overall customer experience.

See all tasks in one place at one time

Combine the power of workforce automation and agent-assisted actions to provide consistent end-to-end experiences. Make business decisions in real time with a single source of truth powered by consistent data. You will no longer have to rely on an admin manager’s “best guess” for prioritizing and assigning tasks.

Break down silos between the front and back office

Disparate systems, manual workarounds, and the inability to track or trace the status of tasks have created many headaches for organizations. This ranges from missed deadlines, human error and backlogs of work, which lead to frustrated and dissatisfied customers. And it only takes five bad experiences to lose a customer. Gaining transparent, reliable insights into your back-office tasks is paramount to the success of delivering on your customer promises.

A single source of truth for every customer request

Constantly pulling data from your CRM system, Excel databases and home-grown solutions is time-consuming and costly. It also requires you to make decisions based on inconsistent data entered in different ways, using different values. Genesys gives you APIs to integrate all your siloed systems — such as Salesforce or ServiceNow — into a single view, enabling you to make more informed decisions based on accurate and consistent data in real time.

Meet and exceed your SLAs

The Genesys Work Automation solution allows a supervisor to classify and prioritize job creation tasks based on SLAs, such as time to completion, and reprioritize tasks based on shifting business priorities in real time. You can also enable the agent to select tasks based on business goals and task importance.

Continuous task progression

Avoid backlogs by creating automated task prioritization and progression rules. Define baseline priorities easily, depending on task types and desired SLAs, as well as automatic actions to take once the status has changed. You’ll always meet due dates and you won’t have to worry about backlogs anymore.
