Introduction to Interaction Director

Interaction Director is a client/server solution that enhances CIC servers to route calls, emails, and faxes to the location that can handle them the best. This content describes how to set up a dedicated Interaction Director server and how to configure existing CIC servers so that Director can monitor them. Interaction Director is compatible with CIC 3.0, CIC 4.0, and subsequent servers (for example, CIC 2015 R1 or later) only. It is not compatible with older CIC versions, or with any version of EIC.

The Interaction Director Installation and configuration Guide is for Genesys partners, PureConnect administrators, and anyone who wants to install and configure Interaction Director and monitored CIC servers. Before installing the software, see the Interaction Director Concepts Technical Reference at It provides essential background information about Interaction Director.
