Note: This article refers to rates for customer contracts under the “per turn/minute rate” structure. For pricing rates per invocation, see Bring your own technology services model (per invocation rates).

Genesys Cloud by Genesys is an extensible customer experience platform, offering an array of third-party applications to expand capabilities through a Bring Your Own Technology services model.

The Genesys Cloud AppFoundry allows customers to find and install third-party applications that offer increased functionality and entirely new capabilities that integrate into Genesys Cloud.

Examples include third-party applications to expand Genesys Cloud’s IVR and self-service capabilities including interactive voice bots, automatic speech recognition (ASR), and text-to-speech (TTS).

As customers use third-party technology solutions inside Genesys Cloud, they may incur charges from the third-party vendor. Customers acquire billing for these services directly, and Genesys Bring Your Own (BYO) utility charges appear on the customer’s monthly Genesys Cloud invoice.

  • Genesys charges conversations on the voice channel per each minute, in 15-second increments.
  • Genesys charges conversations on digital (chat and messaging channels) per turn, or request response pairs, in a conversation.

For digital flows, the following example describes a conversation that consists of three dialog turns:

Turn Request/Response pair
Dialog turn 1
  • Customer says, “Hi.”
  • Bot replies, “Hello, how can I help?”
Dialog turn 2
  • Customer says, “I want to check my balance.”
  • Bot replies, “OK, what’s your account number?”
Dialog turn 3
  • Customer says, “59865848.”
  • Bot replies, “Your balance is $100.”
