Genesys supports Microsoft Lync with best-in-class contact centre routing

Jan 10, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Genesys, a leading provider of customer service solutions, today announced that it has integrated Microsoft Lync with its industry leading customer service platform. The integration of Microsoft Lync and Genesys creates a combined voice platform, enabling companies to unify Contact Centre interactions and Enterprise Communications. By incorporating Genesys industry leading skills-based routing, reporting and multi-channel customer service capabilities, the joint solution will deliver voice and instant messaging (IM) interactions originating from any Lync enterprise device to agents.


News Facts: Microsoft Lync is a unified communications (UC) platform used by organisations of all sizes for communications. Through the Lync integration, Genesys will now help companies consolidate their enterprise communications (external and internal) and contact centre into one combined solution without the need for expensive PBX hardware. Ultimately, Genesys and Lync will improve first call resolution by finding the right available resource, at the right time, via enterprise-wide directory search and ad-hoc conferencing.

Microsoft Lync provides several levels of functionality that are particularly effective for use in conjunction with Genesys SIP Server and Customer Interaction Management platform, such as real-time user status (available, busy, out of office, etc), and enabling companies to route calls to available agents wherever they may be stationed. As a result, organisations using both remote agents and contact centre employees can better direct enquiries based upon the status of any given agent while increasing efficiency of service.

Through a rigorous testing process, Genesys has met the requirements of the Lync ISV Qualification Program, which is designed to ensure that qualified applications meet customer expectations for specific scenarios.

Supporting Quotes: "The integration of Genesys SIP Server with Microsoft Lync Enterprise Voice empowers Contact Centre agents to enjoy the rich collaboration and multimedia capabilities offered by Lync when communicating with their peers, while also extending these capabilities out to their customers," said Merijn Te Booij, Vice President of Products and Strategy, Genesys. "The advantages of running the same Unified Communication platform in the contact centre and the wider enterprise are obvious but compelling: enhancing collaboration throughout the business to efficiently and cost-effectively deliver the best outcomes for customer service." "Tearing down the walls and extending the advantages of unified communications into the realm of customer service makes organisations fully connected to key stakeholders and customers that have traditionally been on the outside looking in." said Jon Morrow Sr. Programme Manager Partner Engineering, Microsoft Lync.
