The IDC MarketScape highlights a number of key strengths for Genesys, including:

  • Strong general purpose question answering capabilities based on an integrated knowledge base, which automatically adds new intents using machine learning. With AI-enabled knowledge, customers can easily source, enrich and contextualize knowledge by adding alternative phrasing, rich media, and channel-specific variations.
  • Low-code/no-code capabilities enabling non-developers to easily build, modify and deploy conversational AI applications. The development interface puts AI in the hands of business users, minimizing dependence on IT and bringing the technology closer to customer experience domain experts.
  • Strong reporting and analytics tools for improving conversational AI experiences and tracking success across channels. The platform also includes an out-of-the box view into how customer intents are managed, highlighting opportunities for automation and proactively identifying issues with conversational AI implementation.
  • Strategic focus on integrating Genesys DX assets with broader Genesys AI and digital capabilities for expanded engagement options and a more robust conversational AI platform across Genesys CX solutions.

“Genesys’ acquisition of Bold360 was a strong move in a highly competitive market,” said Hayley Sutherland, Senior Research Analyst, Conversational AI & Intelligent Knowledge Discovery at IDC. “By bringing together its pre-existing AI and digital capabilities with assets from Bold360, Genesys is evolving into a major player in the conversational AI market.”
