Acendas Travel Case Study
"Turnkey porting – just couldn’t have been any easier and I’ve done dozens of ports in my day. Moving from Genesys Cloud Voice to Star Telecom’s network gave us confidence in our telecom carrier. Carriers are super impacting, but the move from Genesys to Star’s network, we haven't seen any outages. The solution and team are there when we need them, response times are in minutes, not hours. I’ve used Genesys, AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, the whole crew and Star has provided the very best services, period."

Prior to switching to Star Telecom BYOC SIP for Genesys Cloud CX, Acendas Travel was using Genesys Cloud Voice, which is a bundled voice service provided by Genesys. Like many CCaaS providers, Genesys utilizes 3rd party carriers and does not have front line ability to affect telecom concerns directly. As a result, Acendas Travel experienced the following issues which materially impacted its contact center operations
- Difficulty in engaging the support team for questions, troubleshooting and requests for new numbers
- A series of incidents, including outages and quality impairment issues, that negatively impacted Acendas Travel’s contact center operations and drove up costs
- Tier 1 Support with no expertise in how to troubleshoot and respond to SIP queries
- Bills that were too high
Star Telecom provides Genesys approved BYOC SIP trunking services for Acendas Travel’s Genesys Cloud CX environment:
