MEDIA ALERT: Telstra recognised as Genesys Asia Pacific Cloud Partner of the Year for 2nd year in a row

Announcement posted by Genesys 28 Sep 2021

Telstra, partner of leading cloud customer experience provider Genesys® for more than 20 years and their longest standing Cloud Reseller in Australia and New Zealand, was again awarded the accolade which acknowledges the vital role partners play in the growth of the company’s business and service offerings.

Genesys and Telstra recently celebrated a partnership milestone announcing they had exceeded a landmark 150 joint customers using Telstra Contact Centre Genesys Cloud since its launch in 2017. The platform requires only an internet connection to provide an integrated network for contact centres to scale up or down and deal with sudden and unexpected changes in call volumes with ease. 

Mark Chapman, Product and Service Design Executive, Product and Technology at Telstra said, “We have built a valuable partnership with Genesys over many years to deliver easily scalable and simple end-to-end management of customer deployments. I’m proud to see our teams have jointly driven substantial business growth across the APAC region, especially in the past 12 months. It’s rewarding to see our all-in-one cloud contact centre solution help so many customers continue to deliver their customer support and business continuity in 2020.”

George Aprane, Vice President, Channels and Alliances, APAC at Genesys, said, “The high number of Telstra Contact Centre Genesys Cloud customers onboarded in just a few short years highlights our ability to successfully deliver cloud-based customer experience solutions and drive value for our joint customers. The Telstra and Genesys partnership demonstrates how we work seamlessly to deliver the best outcomes for all of our customers, as evidenced in our fastest deployments to date. With the ongoing development of the platform, we look forward to growing this partnership into the future.” 

Genesys remains steadfast in helping its partners grow and increase profitability by continually introducing programs to help them achieve greater success. The company currently has more than 200 partners in the Asia Pacific region, representing a mature and broad range of competencies to ensure successful deployments and superior support and service for its customers.
