Genesys Messaging Takes a Bite out of Apple Business Chat Beta
Genesys launches Messaging for Apple Business Chat
Leaders in the Gartner Magic Quadrants for Contact Centre as a Service (CCaaS), and Contact Centre Infrastructure, Genesys recently introduced their new Messaging app for Apple Business Chat. The company already powers over 25 billion customer experience journeys around the world every year, and they believe that the best way optimise Customer Experience (CX), is with a strategy that spans multiple devices.
Gartner has already predicted that requests for customer support through messaging apps will exceed requests sent through social media by 2019. Companies that want to get ahead of the curve need to give their clients an opportunity to communicate with them on the platform that best suits them. Genesys hopes that their new Messaging service will add yet another supported avenue to the omnichannel contact centre.
Genesys Messaging on Apple Business Chat
To announce their latest system, Genesys invited customers to come to a demonstration on the 11th of April, where they could see the messaging app powered by the Customer Experience AI, Kate. The webinar was presented live throughout Asia Pacific, Latin America, Europe, and North America, with an opportunity for attendees to sign up for the event and receive a free recording afterwards.
According to Genesys, their messaging app offers a new way for consumers in the modern marketplace to communicate with their favourite brands through the messages app on their iPad, or iPhone. This means that today’s clients won’t have to switch between devices or platforms when they want to reach out to a customer support team. Thanks to Genesys, contact centres may finally be able to offer their customers the cross-channel experience they’re looking for.
