Overall Satisfaction with Genesys Multicloud CX (formerly Genesys Engage)

We use Genesys Multicloud CX to handle forecasting our call and chat volumes and scheduling of our contact centers representatives (~700 agents).

It can produce in a relatively fast timeline, very accurate forecasts for our different lines of business as well as schedules for our representatives while taking into account all of their work constraints (HR, Union, Shifts...).
  • Call volume forecasting.
  • Staff scheduling and allocations.
  • Staffing requirements for chat.
  • UI does not feel modern.
It was already set up when I got here, but we are currently revising its architecture according to best practices and we can already anticipate gains in employee engagements which will lead to increased customer satisfaction.
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).
I was not involved in those decisions.
  • AI Forecasting.
  • Vacation bids and management.
  • Shift preferences and bids.

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365), Jira Service Management (Jira Service Desk)
It works best if you have a simple routing structure and your agents do not handle a lot of skills simultaneously. It is fast to produce results, compared to similar products from other vendors and it is pretty stable (does not crash easily).

If you are forecasting, planning for chats, it does not handle concurrency, so you will have to use external tools for that. Also, its UI does not look and feel modern.

~3 are super users and they would support their colleagues with usage.

  • Agent Scheduling.
  • Agent Performance Tracking.
  • Flexibility to integrate and plan for different types of work and contacts
We got the hang of that software and would like to see newer versions and functionalities.

Evaluating Genesys Multicloud CX (formerly Genesys Engage) and Competitors

Yes - Aspect WFM, however I am not sure of the reasons to replace as i joined the organization at a later stage.
  • Price
  • Product Features
I would ask for feedback from actual users, as this can greatly differ from sale pitches and product demos.

Quick Initial Response
Yes, we do have a support plan, but I was not involved in the decision-making.
They are fast to answer and they try to provide you with the best resolution.
One of the product administration software stopped working on one of our computers. Our local IT team could not figure it out. Once I contacted Genesys Support they were able to identify possible solutions within 48h and we were able to resolve the issue. It would not have been possible without them, they asked the right questions and provided a customized resolution.

Using Genesys Multicloud CX (formerly Genesys Engage)

Like to use
Requires technical support
  • Producing a forecast.
  • Scheduling meetings.
  • Generating schedules.
  • Agent vacations.
  • Agent Exception requests.
It is not very intuitive, some functions do not give the obvious results, you have to read the user manual to understand how to use them.
