San Francisco, April 13, 2010 – Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) announced today a significantly expanded eServices solution for customer service and sales with the introduction of Genesys Knowledge Management, Genesys Web Callback and Genesys SMS. These products, built upon the new Genesys G8 platform also announced today, enable cross channel conversations and deliver a consistent experience as customers transition across voice and non-voice channels.

Alcatel-Lucent’s Genesys eServices, available immediately, brings a unique combination of cross channel and Web-based customer services by integrating Genesys: E-mail, Chat, SMS, Web Self-Service, Knowledge Management, Web Collaboration and Web Callback. With Genesys eServices, enterprises deliver “real-time-any-time” customer service and sales that are proactive, personalized and multi-channel.

Customers increasingly rely upon the Web, mobile and growing social media channels. To tap this opportunity and drive growth while deflecting costs, companies are re-tooling their eServices. As customers jump between the traditional voice channel and these many emerging non-voice channels, companies are challenged to maintain a singular conversation and consistent experience.

New Capabilities

The Genesys eServices solution is enhanced with the following new capabilities and products:

Genesys Knowledge Management: With the introduction of Genesys Knowledge Management, the result of an OEM agreement with InQuira, Genesys now provides consistent knowledge and answers as customers jump across voice, Web, and mobile channels.
Genesys SMS: Today, consumers are increasingly relying upon short message service (SMS) as their primary means of communications. As such, Genesys SMS helps companies communicate with their customers through mobile devices and smart phones.
Genesys Web Callback: When browsing a company’s website, customers frequently require additional assistance. With Genesys Web Callback, customers can schedule a live phone call with an agent to assist with their sales or service inquiry.
“The key to growing a business today is being where the customers are and engaging them — anytime, anywhere,” said Nicolas de Kouchkovsky, Chief Marketing Officer, Enterprise Applications for Alcatel-Lucent. “Customers today often prefer non-voice channels like texting and social networks. Genesys eServices lets organizations open virtual offices in those virtual spaces to deliver real customer sales service.”

With the Genesys eServices solution, organizations can:

Reduce the cost of face-to-face and call center support channels
Gain a competitive advantage in building customer loyalty
Turn browsers into buyers by reducing shopping cart abandon rates
Engage with customers and prospects over their preferred channels
Assign business priority to any multi-channel sales or service request to improve conversion rates and service levels
Offer a consistent customer experience across all channels.
Thanks to the modular design of the Genesys 8 software, the Genesys eServices solution is available either as an integrated capability of the Genesys Software suite or as a modular solution that extends the functionality of the Genesys 8 platform outside of the contact center.
