Genesys Workspace Desktop Edition integration for Siebel CRM

Today, companies expect customer service solutions to integrate into their CRM systems without expensive customization work. They require seamless integration that gives their contact center complete visibility into customer data contained in Siebel without extensive effort and cost. Yet, their internal structure can make this problematic since two different teams and cost centers typically manage CTI and Siebel solutions.

The Genesys Workspace (WDE) Connector eliminates the extensive Siebel work usually required to customize the CRM and contact center connection. Keeping as much customization as possible within the WDE Plug-in’s scripting module reduces the total cost of the integration and allows the business to maintain control in Genesys instead of in the CRM.

The WDE Connector makes CRM a service for the contact center, allowing the CRM to control the external toolbar and WDE to manage Siebel. With the WDE Connector, caller data from the CRM is attached to service and sales calls in real time, so agents have the information they need to provide first-call resolution efficiently.

As part of the Genesys Professional Services asset portfolio, the WDE Connector expands the footprint of Genesys Workspace, allowing it to interact with the Siebel Desktop and enhance agent productivity by providing screen pop, case transfer, and click-to-dial functionality.


The Connector integrates Siebel CRM with WDE to leverage customer relationship services in the multichannel contact center.

The agent can access the appropriate customer data in real-time via the caller attached data. Whether a service or a sales call, the customer data ensures prompt and efficient service.

Widgets can be devised to retrieve and present the information as required.

Outbound calls are initiated with full support of customer relationship information.
