Overall Satisfaction with Genesys PureEngage

Genesys Engage platform is used across 4 Nordic countries by over 6000 agents in different departments and areas, helping with the omnichannel customer journey. It is helping with our customer support on mobile and netbank applications, providing rapid responses on secure chat, email, and pre-authenticated voice. It powers the voice portal for customers with authentication, our IT helpdesk for internal employees and many more instances.
  • Power of Omnichannel Contact - You will have the entire conversation whether it started on voice, continued on chat and ended on email.
  • Powerful Interaction Routing - to the right skilled agent and a lot of optimization on resources.
  • Tremendous options for customizing to fit any possible business scenario.
  • Automatic updates for Genesys PureEngage components - like Microsoft updates for example.
  • More HA HotStandby components for seamless switchovers.
Platform independent product, no need to use specific hardware and to be stuck with vendor locked. Easy and periodically updated.
  • AI and ML is on the exploration plan
  • Leveraging current iWD implementation
  • Virtual Agent will be interesting to see
Well suited if you need a very highly customised platform with lots of integrations, with different backends, and when supporting a large customer base. It will have a reasonable ROI from 50 agents. It is suitable for banks and financial institutions, telecom, retail, and can be very adaptive. The less attractive side is the cost of implementation due to the need for highly skilled proffesionals.

Less appropriate for small business - I would recommend heading to Genesys Cloud. This is my recommendation from when I got the chance to speak with our small business contacts.

Genesys PureEngage Implementation

Implementation on Genesys Engage is rather complex. Implementation needs specialized Genesys Professionals and resources, in-house or contractors, who are able to implement the platform and be able to integrate with other in-house or COTS systems. The design and discovery phase is also very important at the beginning.
  • Integration
  • Migration from current PBX to SIP
