Alcatel-Lucent today announced that its advanced Genesys Contact Center solution has been deployed in the largest contact center in Russia at Mobile TeleSystems OJSC, the leading telecommunication operator in Russia and the CIS. Based in Ulyanovsk, this contact center serves more than 10 million MTS customers in the Volga region and the northwest federal districts of Russia processing up to 4 million calls per month.

Advanced call identification and routing features provided by Genesys directs an MTS customer’s call to the person most qualified to address the request.
