This year’s award categories cover a wide range of customer experience achievements.

The CX Achiever recognizes organizations that focus on customer experience (CX) and the employee experience (EX). These organizations use Genesys technology to reimagine and orchestrate CX journeys — while giving employees the ability to deliver smarter outcomes with less effort. They’ve mastered the use of assisted and self-service through digital channels — and empowered employees with modern experiences. Tell us about how you’re cultivating both CX and EX within your organization to deliver amazing experiences.

This category recognizes non-profits or other organizations that are leveraging Genesys for the greater good in order to make the world a better place. Whether your organization uses customer experience technology for humanitarian efforts to change and improve lives or moving to the cloud has enabled your organization to become more environmentally sustainable, we want to hear about it. Please include examples, stories and metrics if possible.

CX Innovators are pushing the limits to deliver smarter and more cohesive customer and employee experiences with Genesys AI. These organizations have leveraged Genesys AI capabilities, such as bot flows, agent assist, predictive routing, predictive engagement or knowledge management, to improve digital and voice-based self-service. They’ve improved workflows, automated smarter or adapted faster to meet business needs. Perhaps they’ve leveraged Pointillist® by Genesys to optimize the customer journey and improve outcomes. Tell us how you are using Genesys AI technology to orchestrate the customer journey to achieve incredible results. Be sure to include metrics.
