VIPKid was founded in 2013 and provides international learning experiences to children in China between the ages of 4 and 12 years old. Headquartered in Beijing with nine offices across the globe, the company offers fully immersive foreign language instruction provided online by highly qualified teachers.
The online learning company contracts with more than 30,000 North American instructors and matches them with around 200,000 primarily Chinese pupils for one-on-one video sessions in English. Additionally, VIPKid allows American teachers to supplement their incomes from halfway around the world.
Faced with a legacy system that lacked functionality and couldn’t support its rapid growth, VIPKid needed a contact center solution that could meet its unique needs. In constant pursuit of innovation, the company ultimately decided to implement the Genesys PureEngage™ on-premises application. In addition to being able to scale as needed, VIPKid also experienced improved agent efficiency, reduced call handle time and enhanced customer experience.
