VANCOUVER, July 13 /CNW/ - CounterPath Corporation (TSX-V: CCV; OTCBB: CPAH), an award-winning provider of desktop and mobile VoIP software solutions, today announced that the latest release of its Bria multimedia softphone is now available for integration with Genesys contact center desktop applications. An Alcatel-Lucent company (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU), Genesys has certified Bria for use with the Genesys 8 SIP Server, providing Genesys customers with a fast, cost-effective way to deploy VoIP and video calling services within their contact centers and to home-based agents.

To simplify Bria's integration with Genesys contact center desktop applications, customer options include the following:

    
    -   The Genesys 8 SIP Endpoint SDK, based on CounterPath's SDK
        technology, for Genesys developer community members to build and
        integrate SIP endpoint connections for their custom desktop
        applications

    -   CounterPath's Bria 3.0 multimedia softphone certified for use with
        the Genesys 8 SIP Server as a stand-alone softphone

        Module, based on CounterPath technology, for a future release of its
        next generation desktop; Genesys 8 Interaction Workspace
    

Genesys 8 provides visibility into customer data and standard response information so contact and call center agents can quickly and effectively handle calls. With the addition of CounterPath's Bria multimedia softphone, Genesys customers now have access to a highly secure, standards-based softphone that enables voice and high-definition (1280x720p) video calls between agents and supervisors.

Bria supports a variety of operating systems, including desktops and laptops running Linux, Mac and Windows, and operates on any wired or wireless IP network, including 3G/4G and Wi-Fi. This flexible design enables contact center operators to significantly reduce the cost of providing unified communications (UC) solutions to agents and employees, all without the need to install dedicated telephony hardware on each desk.

The integration of Bria also provides Genesys customers with:

    
    -   Seamless, Genesys-certified integration, enabling fast, cost-
        effective implementation in variety of contact center environments

    -   An intuitive interface that makes it easy for call center agents to
        perform common tasks such as placing and receiving VoIP and video
        calls, identifying at a glance which contacts are available and
        sending instant messages

    -   Support for third-party application control, which enables the
        contact center applications to manage the calling experience more
        efficiently

    -   A wide variety of configuration options to meet each contact center's
        unique requirements

"Bria gives Genesys customers a flexible, sophisticated and unified VoIP and video solution that is easy to implement and easy to use.
