SAN FRANCISCO, March 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Genesys®, a global cloud leader in experience orchestration, has been named a Leader in "The Forrester Wave™: Contact Center as a Service, Q1 2023."

With this placement, Genesys has been named a Leader by Forrester across the company’s four customer experience priorities.

The Genesys status as a Leader in the Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) report builds on the company’s previous position as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Customer Journey Orchestration Platforms, Q2 2022; Workforce Optimization Platforms, Q4 2021; and The Forrester New Wave™: Conversation Automation Solutions, Q3 2022 reports. The company believes its cumulative recognition demonstrates how Genesys Cloud empowers organizations with a future-focused vision, superior digital infrastructure, and the market-leading innovation required to meet customer and employee expectations.
