Mercedes Selects Genesys for European Call Center; Genesys' T-Server Framework to Drive 500-Seat Customer Assistance Center.

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 19, 1998--Mercedes has selected Genesys Telecommunications Laboratories Inc. (Nasdaq:GCTI), an industry-leading provider of computer telephony and customer interaction solutions, to provide its computer telephony integration software for Mercedes' European customer assistance center in Maastricht, the Netherlands.

The Genesys solution will streamline customer communication in the new call center, which will serve as a central contact point for customers in 17 European countries.

Mercedes' European Customer Assistance Center provides customers with 24-hour service for all emergency calls, catalog requests, price inquiries and other questions and complaints. By using Genesys' CTI software, Mercedes will be able to deliver individual attention to each customer regardless of which media is used (i.e. telephone, fax, postal mail or e-mail). The full-featured call center is expected to be operational with approximately 500 customer service agents by the year 2000.

The Genesys solution will be implemented by system integrator NCR Corp., in conjunction with the sales, marketing and customer service system from Siebel Systems. The backbone of the system is Genesys' T-Server Framework, an open-platform framework that unifies devices and enterprise applications with call center-specific applications for managing customer interactions.

"We are pleased to provide Mercedes with a solution that supports the world-class service its customers expect," said Michael McCloskey, president of Genesys. "Genesys' call center solution will enable Mercedes to track and report on each call or e-mail that comes into the call and correspondence center, and distribute this information to the appropriate customer service agent. This will provide better management of information, which will result in improved service for Mercedes' European customers."

"Working with Genesys allowed us to provide an advanced customer care solution within the required timeframe and budget," said Remco de Jong, call center program manager for NCR Netherlands.
