The Frost IQ Matrix evaluated Australia's eight leading vendors in the cloud 
contact centre market. Genesys was the only vendor positioned in the Champion's 
Quadrant after being recognised for its strong market share (by revenue) and 
its future growth strategy. 

In assessing vendors for its report, Frost & Sullivan considered five key 
criteria: revenue market share, product/service strategy, people and skills 
strategy, ecosystem strategy and business strategy.

Frost & Sullivan singled out Genesys as the industry's sole champion, 
highlighting year-on-year business growth, and strategic acquisitions that have 
expanded its range of offerings, as key determining factors.

Genesys was also recognised for its partner program with leading systems 
integrators and service providers in Australia. 

"We are honoured to be placed in the Champion's Quadrant by Frost & Sullivan. 
In an industry full of new entrants, evolving technologies and constant 
disruption, Genesys continues to set the benchmark for the cloud contact centre 
market," said Gwilym Funnell, vice president of sales and managing director, 
Genesys Australia and New Zealand.

"Through strategic investment, acquisitions and innovation, Genesys now has a 
range of cloud-based contact centre solutions for Australian businesses of all 
sizes and complexities. We're proud to work with the nation's very biggest 
organisations, right through to the SMB space," he added.

In the report, Frost & Sullivan identifies Australia as one of the most 
established cloud centre markets in Asia-Pacific. It estimates the market was 
worth US$22.5 million in 2017 and will grow to US$67.1 million by 2022. While 
the report notes some long-established vendors are struggling to keep up with 
the move to cloud-based solutions, Genesys has successfully stayed ahead of its 
competitors.

"Australia's contact centre industry is rapidly changing as clients move from 
on-premises to cloud contact centre offerings. In reviewing Australia's major 
cloud contact centre players, Genesys stands out not only for the scale of its 
capabilities, but also for its substantial research and development programs, 
and its powerful partner network," said Krishna Baidya, head of customer 
contact research, Digital Transformation Practice at Frost & Sullivan 
Asia-Pacific.

"Through its PureCloud(R), PureConnect(TM) and PureEngage(TM) platforms, 
Genesys has integrated new technologies - like AI and machine learning - into 
its core capabilities. We believe Genesys is well-positioned to retain its 
leading position in the Australian cloud contact centre market due to its depth 
and range of solutions," he added.
