SYDNEY — 15 December 2017 — Genesys® (www.genesys.com/anz), a global leader in omnichannel customer experience and contact centre modernisation has been named a leader in Ovum’s 2017-2018 Decision Matrix. The report, Selecting a Multichannel Cloud Contact Center Solution, recognised Genesys as the vendor with the biggest market impact compared to other vendors evaluated in the Decision Matrix.
In addition, the company grabbed the highest spot in five of the report’s technology matrix categories and was ranked in the execution matrix as a top-three vendor for hosting reliability, multi-channel innovation and customisation.
The Ovum Decision Matrix highlighted several of the company’s core strengths, noting, “Genesys gets high marks in Ovum’s evaluation based on the company’s longtime record of innovation, product breadth and depth, credibility, and financial stability as one of the industry’s largest privately-held technology companies.”
The Ovum report assessed eight cloud contact centre vendors based on technology, execution and market impact. Aggregate scores across criteria determined vendor placement as a “leader,” “challenger” or “follower.” While Genesys was one of three vendors named a market leader, it was the only company with multiple cloud offerings evaluated. Genesys PureCloud™, PureConnect, and PureEngage, all received high scores.
According to the report, “Genesys is ahead of most cloud customer engagement companies with its globalisation efforts and today boasts of being able to support any agent, anywhere in the world.”
“We’re delighted to be recognised again by another leading independent analyst firm for our market-leading cloud strategy,” said Merijn te Booij, chief marketing officer, Genesys. “We’re doing what we said we’d do – and Ovum’s report validates it – giving the market a proven cloud platform so robust, so flexible and so scalable that it can support businesses of all sizes and sophistication levels all over the world.”
The Ovum report also recognised the company’s robust customer and employee engagement offerings and business optimisation capabilities as strengths across all three of its major cloud offerings.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
