SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Genesys® (www.genesys.com), the global leader in omnichannel customer experience and contact center solutions, reports 70% of new customers selected cloud offerings from Genesys in the first six months of 2019.
Fast adoption of the company's next-generation customer experience platform, Genesys Cloud, is the engine driving the rapid growth. Organizations of all sizes around the world including Alberta Motor Association, JPIMedia, Kiwi.com, Lowell Group, Western Governors University and Whirlpool Corporation, are turning to Genesys Cloud for its resiliency, security and rapid innovation. In fact, Genesys Cloud revenue has increased 70% year over year (YOY), and sales continue a steady climb upward, growing 112% compared to the second quarter last year.
The strong progress of the Genesys Cloud platform extends across its SaaS product suite, which includes Genesys PureCloud.

In the first half of 2019, PureCloud revenue increased nearly 110% YOY.
"We've reached a tipping point where the vast majority of new customers are choosing our flagship cloud offer," said Genesys CEO Tony Bates.

We'll meet organizations wherever they are in their march to the cloud to help them successfully manage every moment with their most important asset: their customers."

With its prescriptive approach and proven use cases, a driving force behind this remarkable momentum is the Genesys PureBridge offer. In the first half of this year alone, sales from Avaya displacements have risen by 143% compared with the same period last year, propelling Genesys Cloud growth.
