Sydney, Australia, March, 2018 -- Genesys, a provider in omnichannel customer experience and contact centre solutions, has completed the acquisition of privately held Altocloud Ltd., a cloud-based customer journey analytics provider. By adding the Altocloud solution to its portfolio, Genesys strengthens its capability in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to help organisations deliver a highly responsive, predictive, and fully-contextual experience throughout all stages of the customer journey – from marketing to sales to service.
"The acquisition of Altocloud bolsters our ability to optimise and connect the entire customer journey to ensure the best business outcomes," said Paul Segre, Chief Executive Officer of Genesys. "We are particularly excited by applications, like Altocloud, which give organisations a live look into the behaviour of consumers and their potential as customers. By empowering employees with this depth of actionable insight, organisations are better positioned than ever to convert shoppers into buyers, leads into customers, and consumers into brand advocates."
