To minimize wait times and ensure an end customer gets the answer they need, it is important to route them to the right agent. With skills-based routing, Amazon Connect ensures contacts are sent to the right agent based on their availability and appropriate skill set to efficiently resolve the issue.

Sound quality in a call impacts productivity and can lead to wasted time and frustrated end customers. With Amazon Connect, calls are made over the Internet from a computing device like a PC, using the Amazon Connect softphone. The Amazon Connect softphone delivers high-quality sound, is resistant to packet loss, and provides 16kHz audio to ensure a high quality call experience. Amazon Connect also comes with integrated call recording for agent performance assessment.

Operational efficiency for a contact center is driven by factors like the number of calls taken per month, average time on hold, and the number of calls in the queue at one time. Amazon Connect provides a visual dashboard with customizable real-time and historical metrics. This enables your contact center manager to make data-driven decisions to increase agent productivity and reduce customer wait times. Historical metrics also provide longer-term insights to identify common trends with customer issues and overall operational performance.

Amazon Connect comes with pre-built integrations to popular Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems. There is also an API that can be used to build custom integrations. You can use Amazon Connect with Workforce Management (WFM) suites for agent performance tracking, staffing forecasting and management. Amazon Connect also works with other AWS services like Amazon S3 and Amazon Kinesis for storing recorded calls or streaming detailed contact records in real-time to a data warehouse to merge with business intelligence systems for further analysis.

As a non-technical user, you can easily create customer interactions, or “contact flows”, using the Contact Flow Engine – accessed via the graphical interface. You can identify information such as past purchases, contact history, and customer tendencies, which can be used to anticipate end-customer needs and deliver answers to questions before they are even asked.
