Genesys’ Vice President for the UK & Ireland and Africa, Keith Wilkinson, said, “SpeechStorm has been a truly dynamic and, where needed, flexible partner. The close working relationship between our two organizations has really blossomed through recent collaboration, and powering our products with SpeechStorm has helped us win business and enabled us to offer our customers and other partners the most innovative, new customer self-service solutions available. Our partnership truly deserves this award.”
