Amazon Connect is an easy to use omnichannel cloud contact center that helps you provide superior customer service at a lower cost. Over 10 years ago, Amazon’s retail business needed a contact center that would give our customers personal, dynamic, and natural experiences. We couldn’t find one that met our needs, so we built it. We've now made this available for all businesses, and today thousands of companies ranging from 10 to tens of thousands of agents use Amazon Connect to serve millions of customers daily.
Designed from the ground up to be omnichannel, Amazon Connect provides a seamless experience across voice and chat for your customers and agents. This includes one set of tools for skills-based routing, task management, powerful real-time and historical analytics, and intuitive management tools – all with pay-as-you-go pricing, which means Amazon Connect simplifies contact center operations, improves agent efficiency, and lowers costs. You can set up a contact center in minutes that can scale to support millions of customers from the office or as a virtual contact center.
Make changes in minutes not months
Amazon Connect is so simple to set-up and use, you can increase your speed of innovation. With only a few clicks, you can set up an omnichannel contact center and agents can begin talking and messaging with customers right away. Making changes is easy with an intuitive UI that allows you to create voice and chat contact flows, or agent tasks without any coding, rather than custom development that can take months and cost millions of dollars.
Save up to 80% compared to traditional contact center solutions
Amazon Connect costs less than legacy contact center systems. With Amazon Connect you pay only for what you use, plus any associated telephony and messaging charges. With Amazon Connect there are no minimum monthly fees, long-term commitments, upfront license charges, and pricing is not based on peak capacity, agent seats, or maintenance.

Amazon Connect drives better experiences for customers, agents, and managers
Omnichannel customer service
Amazon Connect provides a seamless omnichannel experience through a single unified contact center for voice, chat, and task management. Amazon Connect offers high-quality audio capabilities, natural interactive voice response (IVR), and interactive chatbots that operate seamlessly with web and mobile chat contact flows. For customer conversations that require additional work (e.g., email, ticket, or claim), follow-up tasks are created in Amazon Connect Tasks without the agent's need to switch between applications.
Easy self-service management
Amazon Connect has the same skills-based contact routing, queuing, analytics, and management tools in a single intuitive UI, making management easy. And adapting to customer needs requires no coding. You can easily create dynamic, personal, and automated customer experiences and reuse those workflows across channels. Once you are up and running, you can also learn from your data with native real time and historical contact center analytics. The visual dashboard provides you with the right data to improve your contact center productivity and efficiency including average queue abandonment time or average handle time, to help you improve customer experience, increase performance, and lower costs.
Amazon Connect is AI and ML enabled by default, allows you to automate interactions, understand customer sentiment, and authenticate callers to improve customer service. Natural interactive voice response (IVR) and interactive chatbots make engagement fast and easy for your customers. Contact Lens for Amazon Connect helps you understand your customers better and in real-time with full speech-to-text search, sentiment, trend analysis, and alerts. And Amazon Voice ID uses machine learning to provide real-time caller authentication to make voice interactions faster and more secure.
Unified customer data
Amazon Connect Customer Profiles equips contact center agents with a more unified view of a customers’ current situation to provide more personalized customer service. Customer Profiles automatically brings together customer information from multiple applications into a unified customer profile, delivered to agents at the beginning of the customer interaction. With Amazon Connect Customer Profiles, agents have all the customer information they need in a single place, so they can deliver more personalized customer service.
Automated agent assist
Amazon Connect Wisdom uses machine learning (ML) to drastically reduce the time agents spend searching for answers. With Wisdom, agents use ML to search across connected repositories based on phrases and questions exactly as the customer would ask them, in order to quickly find answers quickly. Amazon Connect Wisdom helps customers connect relevant knowledge repositories with built-in connectors for third-party applications like Salesforce and ServiceNow, or other internal wikis, FAQ stores, and file shares. In addition, Wisdom uses real-time speech analytics to detect customer issues during calls and provide agents recommendations and answers.
Easy task management
Amazon Connect Tasks makes it easy to prioritize, assign, and track all contact center agent tasks to completion, ensuring customer issues are quickly resolved. Today, agents often track their tasks and customer follow-up items manually. This is difficult and error-prone, especially when a task spans multiple systems like customer relationship management (CRM) systems, e-commerce, and ticketing systems. Amazon Connect Tasks allows your agents to create and complete tasks, in the same UI they take calls and chats.
