What's the challenge?

It’s challenging to identify the right individual, the best moments, and the optimal ways to engage online. Companies want to shape their customers’ journeys and drive them towards desirable outcomes, but it’s hard to utilize all of the available data in a way that is meaningful and actionable. In addition, consumers expect fast answers, but growing your inside or eCommerce sales staff is costly.

What's the solution?

Proactively lead customers to successful journeys on your website. Apply machine learning, dynamic personas, and outcome probabilitiesto identify the right moments for proactive engagement via a web chat.

Story and Business Context

One of the biggest challenges for the modern business is learning to utilize all of the data available to them in a way that is both meaningful and actionable. The data generated by a website is often left unexplored, and as a result, the intentions and reactions of individual customers and prospects can be overlooked. Focus is often placed on the broad strokes–key metrics such as the number of page views this month–and we lose the ability to identify the potential customers who need engagement most. As a result, prospects who may be on the verge of signing up for a trial, completing a checkout, or any other desirable outcome, fall through the cracks.

The high volume of website traffic makes it challenging to identify the right individuals, best moments, and optimal ways to engage in real time. Expectations for time-to-respond are increasing but growing your inside sales staff is costly. Marketing dollars are spent on a wide range of demand generation activities but it is difficult to connect the dots from lead to contact to opportunity to closed. Genesys Predictive Engagement uses machine learning to track the progress of website visitors towards defined outcomes–purchase completion, requesting a quote–and enables the business to define rules to trigger intervention only at the points when it is needed most.

With Genesys Predictive Engagement, you can predict and prioritize high-value leads for your sales team to engage and proactively offer chat to better utilize your staff and reduce your costs. Genesys Predictive Engagement uses machine learning to track the progress of website visitors towards defined outcomes–purchase completion, requesting a quote–and enables the business to define rules to trigger intervention only at the points when it is needed most.
