Telecommunications and contact center solutions company Lumen Technologies has launched Lumen Solutions for Contact Center - Genesys Cloud, thus expanding its partnership with Genesys. The solution is said to drive customer retention, decrease costs and boost productivity.
"Moving from older contact center infrastructure to the latest technologies is a major change for companies, but the massive improvements to efficiency and effectiveness make it worth the effort. Legacy platforms are capital intensive, while newer cloud-based or hybrid solutions are much more flexible and cost-effective," said Craig Richter, Senior Director of UC&C Product Management, Lumen.
Most contact centers are transitioning to cloud-based and hybrid work models to reduce costs, gain flexibility and improve data security.
"Lumen is helping customers rapidly adapt without investing capital or IT resources. We can do this because we have more than 30 years in the contact center business, and we leveraged that knowledge to inform our new suite of CCaaS offerings. Additionally, as a network partner and CCaaS provider, we offer a holistic solution that is unique in the marketplace. This combination of expertise and capabilities is powerful, and customers are leaning on us to build efficient, stable, cost-effective contact center operations, create positive experiences for their customers, and ultimately improve their bottom line," continued Richter.
