Google Data Studio makes reporting a breeze for Genesys

Creating seamless user journeys

As a customer experience platform, Genesys helps clients nurture great relationships with customers, and creates seamless user journeys across all channels and devices. Its technologies are used by more than 10,000 companies in over 100 countries, making Genesys the top provider of its kind for 25 years in a row.

To improve data efficiency and communication across the company, Genesys turned to Analytics Pros, a digital analytics agency. Together, they used the power of Google Data Studio to transform the way teams across Genesys accessed and used data.

Communicating with data

The marketing and product teams at Genesys had always been passionate about using data to optimize their user experience and marketing channels. But the problem was showing the data. The different offices and executives around the world had trouble logging in to view the data — and once they did, the reports were intimidating and confusing.

After learning more about the capabilities of Data Studio, Genesys decided to run a pilot project. Analytics Pros helped the company combine multiple data sets into self-service, fully-customizable dashboards on Data Studio. And it was a huge success. Regional teams were thrilled to have meaningful dashboards, and even executives started using and sharing reports.

Data Studio allowed our global team and executive leaders to see everything that’s happening on our website at any time without the need to learn complicated segments or filters. Genesys is making business decisions faster and smarter. Definitely a game changer for us.

Dashboards to the rescue

Following the success of the pilot, Genesys and Analytics Pros decided to take Data Studio to the next level, creating automated dashboards that replaced weekly and monthly manual processes.

“Before we had Data Studio, it was challenging to quickly understand the impact of content and digital programs on our website experience, from both a regional and global marketing perspective. We value data governance, but static report exports did not always provide the whole story or unveil meaningful trends,” says Jessica Sylvester, Director of Digital Marketing. “Our Data Studio dashboards give my team the right level of data insight needed to continue to improve our digital marketing efforts in a beautiful, easy-to-use format.”

By making dashboards that are easy to access and easy to use, Genesys turned data into an important part of the company’s culture. Dashboards are now projected on screens around the office to keep people in the loop, and regional sales teams use reports from Data Studio to fuel friendly contests to see who’s got more users and conversions.

Efficiency gains for every team

After switching to Data Studio, Genesys has seen huge improvements in efficiency. In particular, since it no longer needs to manually pull data and distribute reports, the web team has seen its workload decrease by 72 hours each quarter.

“Thanks to Data Studio, we can now communicate and act on the customized data in Google Analytics 360,” says Kady Wood, Director of Global Web Infrastructure at Genesys. “Developers, execs, and global team members from multiple departments can compare, filter, and organize the exact data they need on the fly, in one report. No more waiting for several static reports to fill their inbox on Monday morning. Website information just went from inaccessible and confusing, to obvious and actionable with one tool.”
