Genesys Aligns with SAP’s Broad Integration Strategy, Fully Leveraging SAP NetWeaver


SAN FRANCISCO - May 4, 2006 - Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories, Inc., an Alcatel company (NYSE: ALA, Paris: CGEP.PA), today announced that its Genesys customer interaction management software suite enables key SAP® solutions to seamlessly integrate with voice self-service functionality from Genesys Voice Platform. The integration of voice self-service with the back and mid-office will make it much easier to simplify access to SAP solutions and make them available to a larger set of users across the organization. For example, Genesys Voice Platform integrated with the SAP NetWeaver® platform would allow self-service access by phone to functions such as benefits enrollment, expense reimbursement, claims processing and inventory management.

Using automated voice self-service allows enterprises to more easily access back-office applications. If, for example, a delivery driver’s truck broke down, a simple call to the voice self-service system could be integrated with the order management system and make adjustments accordingly. The driver would not need field access to the SAP solutions.

“We are proud to have developed such tight integration between customer interaction management software and SAP applications,” said Karl Holzthum, senior vice president, Worldwide Channel & Alliances for Genesys. “Solutions from Genesys and SAP provide a perfect fit for organizations that need to integrate front-office and back-office functions. Genesys enables sophisticated routing and reporting to manage customer interactions throughout the enterprise including voice, email, work items, documents and Web interactions, all in support of critical SAP applications and data.”

Genesys Voice Platform Achieves Powered by SAP NetWeaver Qualification
Genesys also announced it has achieved “Powered by SAP NetWeaver” qualification for the certified integration of Genesys Voice Platform 7.0 with the SAP NetWeaver Portal component and for porting the application onto SAP NetWeaver Application Server (SAP NetWeaver AS). In doing so, SAP customers can seamlessly deploy Genesys Voice Platform in the SAP NetWeaver-based landscape and access it through the portal.

Genesys is an SAP Software Partner and has a longstanding relationship with SAP. The Powered by SAP NetWeaver endorsement marks a major milestone in extending Genesys’ support of SAP solutions. Qualifying for Powered by SAP NetWeaver status means customers can bring context available in SAP solutions to the portal business packages provided by Genesys. By having a common platform and integration with SAP NetWeaver, Genesys customers benefit from stronger connectivity and better automated responses.

Genesys and SAP share a longstanding robust partnership. Genesys and SAP uniquely collaborate on development through a co-development agreement and emphasize customer satisfaction and support with a global support contract that gives joint customers one unified solution.
