San Francisco, CA, USA and Montreal, QC, Canada, March, 2020 -- Genesys(R), the global provider in cloud customer experience and contact center solutions, has acquired its long-standing partner, nGUVU, to add gamification to its comprehensive workforce engagement management (WEM) suite. Based in Montreal, Canada, nGUVU is a cloud-based software provider of gamified solutions that use machine learning and behavioral analytics to improve employee engagement and performance.
Now, Genesys customers can take advantage of a modern way to deliver even better employee experiences. Together, the solutions enable businesses to radically improve employee engagement, customer experiences, staff retention and cost savings.
"Helping organizations elevate ordinary transactions into meaningful connections that reinforce to customers how much they matter is central to our vision, Experience as a ServiceSM. While this is no easy feat, it can be done with a combination of advanced cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and a highly engaged workforce," said Tony Bates, chief executive officer of Genesys. "That's why we are bringing nGUVU into the Genesys family to help organizations positively influence employee behavior and performance through gamification. Following our recent recognition as a Visionary in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Workforce Engagement Management1, this acquisition offers yet another proof-point that Genesys is ready to support the next generation of the world's workforce."
nGUVU Chief Executive Officer Pierre Donaldson said, "This marks a major milestone for nGUVU, and we couldn't be more excited to join the Genesys team. The scalability we gain from Genesys Cloud WEM benefits our existing customers and gives organizations of all sizes across the globe a powerful gamification solution to help their employees become more effective and engaged."
"Increasingly, organizations recognize the importance of the employee in the overall customer experience equation. With the addition of nGUVU's gamification, Genesys is addressing the way progressive employees want to work," said Alan Webber, program vice president of IDC. "As the industry shifts from a workforce optimization approach to focusing on employee experience and engagement, this strategic acquisition reinforces the company's commitment to delivering the next generation of workforce tools powered by the cloud and AI."
