Business challenge

In today’s customer-centric business environment, emotionally connecting with customers gives your business a clear competitive advantage. Not only does a positive customer experience improve satisfaction rates and net promoter scores (NPS), it also fosters repeat customers, increases revenue and sales, and reduces customer churn.

This is most evident in the contact center environment. A contact center is a critical point of direct contact with the consumer—and a defining moment in customer experience. While the goal of many contact centers is to resolve customer problems, savvy businesses are leveraging challenges and turning them into opportunities by building customer relationships and uncovering customer needs beyond problem resolution. If these customer relationships are not effectively nurtured and developed, businesses lose out on their ability to cross-sell and up-sell value-added products and services—and that affects topline revenues.

Businesses recognize the potential financial impact of these opportunities, so they’re evaluating new approaches to personally connect contact center agents with customers. The omnichannel approach, which leverages the full integration of voice, video, web chat, email and social media within a contact center, is quickly becoming the gold standard of customer engagement.

VidyoEngage for Genesys

VidyoEngage for Genesys provides a personal touch to the contact center that elevates customer/agent interaction. With communications and understanding improved via video, agents can resolve tickets faster, increase NPS and effectively meet other KPIs. The ability to share desktop applications from both sides of the conversation improves up-sell opportunities while delivering an added level of collaboration to high-value customer and agent interactions.

VidyoEngage transitions a voice, chat and web page interaction into a true omnichannel experience at no cost to you. This experience is easily accessible from one of the following scenarios: web chat escalation of video, voice escalation to video, and click-to-video chat from web page or mobile applications. VidyoEngage delivers a high-quality end-user experience, regardless of available bandwidth. It provides content-sharing capabilities and the option to begin a video chat directly on a web page without downloads or plugins, including multi-party video conferencing.

VidyoEngage for Genesys integrates Genesys contact centers and Vidyo Conferencing to enable high-definition, scalable video that improves agent and customer interactions. The integration is seamless within the Genesys contact center, making video interactions frictionless within the flow of interactions between a customer and an agent.


Improving customer satisfaction, fostering customer loyalty and increasing customer advocacy are just some of the benefits of integrating VidyoEngage with a Genesys contact center.

Build stronger customer relationships with the complete omnichannel experience of VidyoEngage for Genesys. Leveraging full voice, web chat, email and social media with added video creates a personal touch that keeps customers engaged.

The omnichannel experience helps agents do their jobs better. Faster first call resolution times and access to multi-party video chats with an expert increase call accuracy, create the opportunity to up-sell or cross-sell, and affects your bottom line. Cut problem resolution times in half, improve customer satisfaction and avoid customer churn by adding a face-to-face experience to customer engagement.
