If a customer is operating the Genesys Cloud rapid response offer and decides to expand the scope (add digital channels or Workforce Engagement capabilities), do they then need to pay for these additional Genesys Cloud capabilities?
Yes. If new capabilities are added beyond the scope of the Genesys Rapid Response offer, then standard fees would apply.
When we say, “standard terms apply,” can you provide more clarity on what that means for the customer? Are they bound to a 1-year contract if they accept the free Rapid Response Genesys Cloud offer?
There’s no requirement in our “standard terms” for a 1-year contract. “Standard terms apply” simply refers to our standard Genesys Cloud terms found at https://help.mypurecloud.com/articles/global-purecloud-service-terms-and-conditions/.
Post free service period, if the customer wants to stay on the scope of Genesys Cloud that is provisioned as a part of Genesys Rapid Response, what is the price and what does the offer look like?
If the customer is using the rapid response scope and wants to continue with that scope after the free offer expires (60 days), then they can contract the same scope at the published Genesys Cloud 1 rate for a committed contract monthly or yearly. (If COVID-19 extends past the period, Genesys will consider options to extend.)
Note: If customer is using features beyond the Business Continuity offer or elects to upgrade to a different bundle during or after the free period (Genesys Cloud 2 or Genesys Cloud 3), the appropriate bundle price will apply at that time.
If a customer wants to keep the Genesys Cloud Rapid Response option sitting idle in case they need it for business continuity – what do they pay?
They pay the minimum commitment of 20 seats of Genesys Cloud 1 (10-seat minimum for non-profits).
For the Rapid Response defined scope of capabilities and services, are we indicating that there is a “freeze” period where the customer should use the current offer before expanding the scope through additional services or AppFoundry partners?

What happens at the end of the trial period for new customers COVID-19 Rapid Response offer and existing customer COVID-19 Rapid Response trial offer?

Remember the primary goal is to ensure the customer can navigate these challenging times.
