Genesys is launching a Rapid Response offer to help civic agencies and enterprises build resilience and ensure business continuity as COVID-19 surges in India. The company is helping organisations within the country to quickly establish a remote workforce and maintain critical customer service by providing free licenses for 90 days to the Genesys Cloud solution, with the capability to deploy as fast as 48 hours. Genesys Cloud recently launched new capabilities in India by enabling businesses to keep their interactions and data located within the country.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation in India, civic and health agencies are witnessing a spike in citizens requesting accurate and relevant pandemic-related information related to vaccine availability, tests, and medical-related issues. Many sectors that had resumed on-premises operations are back to re-aligning to an enhanced work from home model to ensure employee safety.
The Rapid Response offer will allow organisations and the government to launch a secure cloud contact centre with the fundamental capabilities needed to engage effectively with customers, colleagues or citizens from anywhere during this pandemic situation. With Genesys Cloud, it becomes easier to support remote capabilities, shift the geographic operations or manage unexpected surges in customer inquiries.
This includes support for Interactive Voice Response (IVR), voice and email routing, interaction recording and employee collaboration tools. On-demand training and education is also included to make the transition easier for employees and supervisors. In addition, it also assists in managing costs by waiving coverage premiums resulting from unexpected surges in customer inquiries.
Raja Lakshmipathy, Managing Director, India & SAARC, Genesys, said, “With the recent in-country roll-out of Genesys Cloud, we hope to assist in providing swift response and rapid action to help mitigate any danger to the public or employees. In the process of doing so, we are helping organisations ensure data sovereignty along with secure, reliable, and flexible services, to meet the demands during this COVID-19 crisis. Our goal, therefore, is to leverage our cloud solutions for humanitarian aid at this critical juncture beyond being an enabler that is instrumental in helping with business continuity and citizen empowerment.”
Genesys is also exploring solution tie-ups with implementation partners who are critical to help expedite deployments of Genesys Cloud. Genesys Rapid Response was initially launched last year across various regions during the early stages of the COVID-19 outbreak. It received an overwhelming response, helping more than 700 organizations maintain business continuity and enabling approximately 800,000 contact centre employees to safely work remotely. Across the APAC, specific sectors like Telcos, Government, Utilities, FSI and insurance were also able to hugely benefit. Organizations that Genesys supported with remote assistance include Countdown New Zealand, Kiwibank, Lenovo, Ly.com, Ping An, Probe, Security Bank Corporation, Toll Group and True Corporation Public Company Limited.
