IST, a company largely regarded as a customer experience technology specialist, has several locations around the world. From Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to Egypt, Turkey, Bahrain and the UK, IST’s reach is wide. And, given its status as a customer experience expert, IST has been named a “Middle East Partner of the Year” by Genesys (News - Alert).
When it comes to the customer experience, being vouched for by Genesys is about as good as it gets. The company is a global leader in omnichannel customer experience and contact center solutions, so its word is gold.
According to the announcement, the Middle East Partner of the Year Award recognizes IST for its technical support and professional service capabilities, investment in Genesys training and certification programs, and in-house R&D capabilities. What makes IST stand out is that it’s allowed Genesys to extend its partnership with IST and empower it to become the first and only cloud partner in the Middle East. Additionally, this award acknowledges IST’s successful implementation of several Genesys-based solutions in the region, including projects with Careem, Dubai Islamic Bank, Mobily, SABIC, and STC.
Mohamed Afifi, Managing Director, Middle East at Genesys, commented on the company’s decision to recognize IST with this award by saying, “We are very proud of IST - in less than three years they have stepped up and achieved such great results. Delivering innovation in a very competitive and challenging market is not easy. Over the last couple of years, IST has done a great job delivering customer success to major Genesys clients in the region and helping accelerate our new strategic solutions to the market. Now with their latest cloud offering powered by Genesys, there are new opportunities to deliver unique value on digital customer experience in the region.”
Sherif Fahmy, Marketing Manager at IST, is thrilled to have received this award, saying,“This award from Genesys is a testament to the commitment we have made to Genesys in terms of not just building the largest team of Genesys focused CX experts in the region but also investing in R&D and launching innovative solutions like IST OmniCloud and IST Sentiment Analysis that can be integrated with Genesys’ own solutions to offer Middle East enterprises best-in-class customer experience platforms.”
