Commenting on the importance of Genesys PureCoud for IST customers in the region, Mohamed Fahmy, chief executive officer at IST, said, “Our Middle Eastern customers have shown a strong appetite for cloud solutions in an effort to lower capital expenditure costs. The scalability and flexibility of PureCloud can help organizations easily expand and shrink their contact center based on fluctuating business demands.”
“That being said, one of the challenges facing many organizations when it comes to cloud contact center deployments is how to handle the voice traffic. With Genesys PureCloud’s Edge, all voice traffic will be handled locally at the customer office, while all contact center management and decision-making applications are hosted in the cloud. As such, we can offer our customers a proven, feature-rich solution that provides reliable voice traffic over the internet. Most importantly, it integrates all the different customer engagement channels into one solution, ultimately enabling businesses to offer the highest quality customer experience,” concluded Mr. Fahmy.
