Solution is extremely agile and flexible. The new generation of containerized solution would be a game changer since it brings the ease of deployment and ability to get the innovations to a new total different place. I believe it is really hard to find in the competition who would have something similar or even close

  • VHT as a stand alone model can be easily plugged into to the current call routing with minimal changes and it works like charm.
  • Platform SDKs are a powerful tool that help integrate with other third party solutions or to build custom made applications.
  • The whole routing solution is amazing . With user friendly composer, you have the option of building both VRUs and routing strategies. And, they are very easy to deploy.
  • The level of details for report customization is another strong point.

  • Genesys needs to pick up the pace with application upgrades. We see more and more issues with Genesys applications falling behind the operating systems versions. We need more apps to be ready for the latest server OC models. There is a lag.
  • There seems to be constant unrest with the management application platform, CME, SCI, Genesys administrator, GAX, then GAX plugins, then a move away from plugins. We would like one stable management platform that encompasses ALL aspects of management within the contact center.
  • Real-time reporting deficiencies with Genesys pulse web. this application cannot live up to CCPulse with respect to flexibility of views. Pulse web was a plugin now it's not a plugin any longer. constant movement, we finally get pulse web plugin onto production, 6 months later these something supposedly better.

Genesys Engage is instrumental in us meeting our service obligations to our customers. Engage enables our organization to deliver interactions to the right staff and helps us minimize service and coverage gaps through historical and real-time reporting. Additionally, we feel that only Genesys Engage can meet and exceed our business needs and requirements.

Usability
Bright Pattern, Inc.
Most of Bright Pattern Contact Center's features are fairly straightforward. Anything my agents may need is set in categories that are easy to search through. Switching through different interactions is as simple as clicking on a new tab. I am able to organize my phone trees and the agent queues to allow calls and chats to route to the correct team and cut down on the need for our agents to act as triage.

Overall, from a customer perspective and also an agent perspective, it is very easy to use Genesys Engage's platform. The Agent Desktop and Genesys WDE are good. Usability is high and I would consider it an easy to use product and easy to adopt from this perspective.

Reliability and Availability
Bright Pattern, Inc.
It is always on. The only outage to date that I have experienced was with an upstream telco provider. The inbound leg telco was hit by a DDOS attack which led to delays in routing calls to the platform. This was not the fault of the Bright Pattern platform but the telco provider.

There are occasional failures, but distributed and High Availability features work well when architected, installed, and configured properly. Thoroughly reading and understanding system documentation is a must.

Support Rating

The support received from Bright Pattern is great, they are always willing to provide support assistance with queries and are very knowledgeable on the product, the back end developers always adding new features and functionality, and these are always explained in detail so end-users and partners are able to make full use of these developments.

There's definitely room for improvement. I would have love to see the chat functionality work more frequently. The level of expertise has diminished over the years. I understand that this in part has to do with the number of new products that has been introduced, but should not be an excuse for the lack of readiness.

In-Person Training
Bright Pattern, Inc.
In-person and virtual training was great, but Bright Pattern could use some online training videos similar to other platforms. I would welcome online training videos to keep the steady flow of new agents up to date. Admin training is one of the largest areas that need video. The static documentation is great. It is pretty easy to follow and configure your contact center as you progress through each step. The documentation is available online on an easy to use knowledgebase or wiki style site. You do not need a user account to access the help docs, meaning that users at any level can freely access the materials to learn about the platform.

Good training, but on limited locations. You can almost only follow trainings in europ in the UK and in Germany. Uk location is relatively difficult to get to and on a exppensive location. The content of the training is good, supplied training material is okay, but sometimes a bit outdated. When you follow a training it is most likely because of a recent purchase which is uasually the latest version.

Interesting webinars on relevant topic are being provided regularly. Th e webinars a often provided by Genesys and hosted by a very experienced product owner. In many occasions a customer is invited to share his / her experiences and best practices. Webinars can be watched at a later time for your convenience.

I have done a few of these now for a multiple number of our contact centers. It has been really smooth. It is a fun platform to work with. I enjoy building new ideas within the scenario builder. Because I enjoy it, I am not afraid to try something new and innovative.

It was a death march. We finally learned enough about the product to know that our vendor knew nothing and had done it wrong. We hired voice engineers and took over the project. We should have fired our vendor much earlier

Alternatives Considered
Bright Pattern, Inc.
Bright Pattern prides itself on providing out-of-the-box functionality. Unlike many of the other platforms listed, there is no need to subscribe to additional options for increased feature functionality nor is there a need to implement additional plugins to get to a desired level of operability. Much of what is needed to build a world-class contact center platform is a part of the solution on day one.

For a similar contact center structure, I find Genesys products are faster to produce outcomes, and fast to respond (loading, changing screens...). However, in terms of user interface, I do prefer the way NICE did things there. Coming from an agent background, I find that the NICE agent interface is more visually appealing and offers more flexibility (parameters for agent exceptions).

The Interactive Intelligence SIP based contact center platform has broken through the barriers of "board based" technology to processor based limits on scalability. This means their CIC premise or cloud platform can be engineered to support agent counts into the thousands.

Return on Investment
Bright Pattern, Inc.
  • We were able to automate features such as information change requests and W-2 reprint requests which cut down up to 4,000 agent interactions a day during the W-2 season.
  • With training features and the ability to specify skills, new agents are able to jump in quickly and build up their level of support gradually as they become ready to handle more interactions at once.
