In addition, the open architecture of Genesys Engage and a rich ecosystem of tools and capabilities will enable businesses to customize the solution so they can better address the unique challenges and objectives of their industry and customers.
As enterprises prepare for the next normal, Infosys Cortex will help them harness AI services from Google Cloud. Together with Google AI-powered voicebots, chatbots, interaction analytics, and an industry-leading IVR from Genesys, businesses can shift from being remote-ready to driving digital customer service from anywhere. They can also grow the effectiveness of their customer care with increased first-call resolution, reduced average handle time, decreased call volume, and improved service-to-sales conversion.

With Infosys Cortex, we can now share with them the digital capabilities to future-proof their customer relationships”, said Ravi Kumar, President at Infosys.

As agents are augmented by AI, they can deliver more personalized experiences.”
