Genesys Solutions, Customers Recognised in 2006
Wokingham, February 26, 2007 – Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories, Inc., an Alcatel-Lucent company (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU), was recognised and honoured as the recipient of numerous industry awards by technology organisations, publications and analyst firms in 2006.
The awards recognised Genesys and its contact centre and enterprise software solutions as leaders in the customer interaction space, noting Genesys’ leadership in helping companies integrate technology and transform business processes to dynamically optimise the allocation of customer service resources in real-time. Orchestration of call flow traffic, customer data and analytical outcome is key to transforming how businesses interact with customers and optimise business processes.
Wes Hayden, Genesys president and CEO, stated: “In 2006, Genesys was recognised for paving the way to a new stage in the evolution of contact centres. Customer reliance on contact centres as a central point of contact is increasing, and Genesys continues to engage with customers and preach the arrival of the dynamic contact centre – one that changes shape in real-time, responding to changing traffic conditions, fully using all available resources and extracting value from every single customer interaction. Technology will propel us there, but this also requires a shift in how contact centre elements currently operate.”
This past year, IBM awarded Genesys its IBM PartnerWorld Beacon Award, Global Solutions, in its Best Industry Solution Category. Judges were impressed with how Genesys’ IBM contact centre solutions for the banking industry improve a bank’s ability to communicate with customers and spur business, lower the cost of customer interaction, and establishes an open, adaptable, cost-effective infrastructure for the future.
Additionally, Genesys Australia and New Zealand was named “Supplier of the Year” by the International Customer Service Professionals (ICSP) for the second consecutive year. Genesys was judged on leadership and service culture, measurement of performance and service standards, training and rewarding service champions, continuous service improvement; service resolution and responsiveness, and benchmarking service standards.

This year, the company also caught the judges’ attention in the interactive voice response category; winning it handily.
Industry publication TMCnet named Genesys Enterprise Telephony Software (GETS) as one of the 2005 Communications Solutions Products of the Year. The software was recognised as an advanced collaboration solution that powers instant communication for improved communication within the enterprise.
