  • 16 February, 2006 10:46

<p>SAN FRANCISCO, February 16, 2006 – Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories, Inc., an Alcatel company (NYSE: ALA, Paris: CGEP.PA), today announced that Travelocity®, the fifth largest travel agency in the United States, has implemented Genesys contact center solutions, including enterprise routing and computer telephony integration (CTI).</p>
<p>Travelocity’s customer service agents’ commitment to delivering a great travel experience requires providing consistent, high-quality service throughout the reservation and booking process. Agents assist customers with everything from finding the best airfare to selecting the right hotel via e-mail, phone and the Travelocity Web site, and having Genesys technology in its contact center supports repeat customer business generation.</p>
<p>“Travelocity is committed to being the traveler’s champion – before, during and after a trip,” said Lesley Harris, vice president sales and customer care, Travelocity. “We are constantly striving to measure success based on service levels and customer satisfaction. Genesys CTI and Genesys routing capabilities have made a difference in delivering personalized customer service to Travelocity customers.”</p>
<p>Travelocity needed a system that could route calls more efficiently, and one that had CTI to quickly deliver a screen pop of customer information directly to agent desktops. Integrating the solutions with Travelocity’s existing CRM program gave Travelocity the ability to provide more highly personalized service. Genesys open-standards contact center solutions solved the issues at hand for Travelocity, allowing the company to keep up with its heavy call volume. Further, skills-based routing now allows the company to more efficiently staff its contact centers.</p>
<p>“Many contact centers struggle with how to balance high customer satisfaction goals with the constraints of very tight budgets and cost control,” said Elliot Danziger, Genesys chief technology officer. “Travelocity is a prime example of how Genesys allows its customers to achieve both. Intelligent and effective skills-based routing enhances the customer experience while at the same time driving higher efficiencies and maintaining or even reducing costs.”</p>
