"While moving to a cloud-based model has numerous measurable advantages, it also offers an added bonus—one that many companies say is even more important to their long-term business success: transforming IT from a support center focused on tactical, day-to-day operations into a revenue generator that can help shape the company's strategic vision and then make it a reality," explains Frost & Sullivan Enterprise Communications & Collaboration Vice President Melanie Turek. "By letting the service provider handle deployment, updates and routine maintenance and support, as well as any unexpected problems, companies free up their IT staff to focus on delivering business value."
In these analyses, Frost & Sullivan shares insight into how the cloud based customer experience solutions from Genesys can address these challenges by providing a single view of the customer across mobile, web, phone or social media. The goal is to enable consumers to connect with businesses when and how they need to, while helping businesses understand the complete lifecycle of a customer – across all departments such as marketing, sales and service.
"Advanced data analytics can help ensure each visitor is treated as a unique individual and offered information on products and specials that truly meet his or her needs," said Turek. "Extensibility and integration with back-office applications like CRM and SCM software let other employees support the customer service effort and ensure every contact leverages a complete picture of the relationship."
"Today, consumers expect a hyper-personalized experience where companies know them, understand their preferences, predict their needs, and are available to them how and when they want to interact," said Olivier Jouve, Genesys executive vice president of PureCloud. "To accomplish this, companies will need to deliver a true omnichannel experience where they are accessible across any channel, day and night, while preserving full context of the entire customer journey."
The Genesys Customer Experience Platform offers several key advantages for businesses to:
- Manage the entire customer lifecycle from marketing, sales to service, improving insight and control of the full journey while enabling more predictive capabilities so that companies can more successfully route and service customers based upon this histories and behaviors;
