Overview

InGenius Software has been in business since 1986, and is 100% focused on computer telephony integration, or CTI. We have an excellent reputation for quality products and ongoing, strong customer service. Our many references will attest to our knowledge, experience, longevity and dedication to high quality products and service.

InGenius has been building telephony and CTI products since 2003, and was one of the first companies (if not the first) to release a product based on Salesforce.com's Open CTI protocol. In fact, InGenius worked closely with Salesforce.com to contribute to the specs for Open CTI.

InGenius also has close ties with the Microsoft Dynamics 365 and ServiceNow CSM teams, and fully supports their products with InGenius Connector Enterprise.
