Genesys Cloud Integrates With Microsoft Teams


A picture of two puzzle pieces coming together

Genesys has expanded its Microsoft partnership with a new native integration.

Microsoft Teams and Genesys Cloud, the all-in-one solution and one of the world’s leading public cloud contact centre platforms, are now fully integrated, giving employees a more connected, intuitive and productive experience.

As a result, contact centre agents can collaborate with any employee using Teams so they can resolve customer issues faster and deliver better service.

Genesys Cloud and Teams Make Collaboration Easy for Contact Centres

Today, contact centre employees work in several different systems across multiple devices, constantly toggling back and forth.

This adds inefficiency and friction, stifling collaboration efforts and making it more time-consuming and cumbersome to serve customers.

Together, the integrated solutions address these challenges and enable employees to call Teams users throughout their organization, all from within Genesys Cloud.

The integration provides organizations like Western Governors University with an end-to-end solution that makes employees’ jobs easier and improves the customer experience.

“Deploying Genesys Cloud has already made it simpler for our employees to work with students,” said Adam Davis, director of operations, Western Governors University.

“The new integration with Microsoft Teams allows our student care teams to connect with one another and share knowledge so they can efficiently support our students’ needs.”

Bridging the Gap Between the Front and Back Office

When agents need to consult with a subject-matter expert outside of the contact centre, they can use the integrated directory, search and presence features to find the Teams user with the right expertise from within their Genesys Cloud desktop.

They can determine availability and collaborate in real time with a single click. For example, if a customer asks a question about a loan for a new vacation home while on a support call, an agent can quickly find an available mortgage specialist to help address the issue during the interaction.

This facilitates teamwork, knowledge sharing and results in faster resolution for customers.

“We are thrilled to add yet another element to our long-standing partnership with Microsoft, which marks an important step forward in helping our customers deliver on the promise of Experience as a Service,” said Olivier Jouve, executive vice president and general manager, Genesys Cloud.

“With more than 75 million daily active users, Microsoft Teams is a predominant unified communications and productivity tool for thousands of enterprise organizations.”

“Integrating our platform with Teams, allows employees to draw upon expertise from anywhere in the organization so they can provide experiences tailored for every customer.”

Mike Ammerlaan, Director of Microsoft 365 Ecosystem marketing at Microsoft, said, “More organizations recognize that employees throughout the business contribute to outstanding customer experiences – not just those in the contact centre.”

“The Genesys Cloud and Microsoft Teams integration helps ensure employees are equipped with the right tools to collaborate with colleagues across the enterprise while benefiting from features like advanced routing, call recording and interaction analytics to deliver consistent service.”
