This Quick Start integrates WEBTEXT Contact Center Messaging with Amazon Connect. This integration enables your Amazon Connect contact center to use SMS text, MMS pictures, Facebook Messenger, and other messaging channels to transform the user experience. Messaging-enabled contact centers support users in their preferred channel, on their preferred device.
- Voice agents can send secure SMS or Messenger text messages, including URL links, to cellphone callers during or after a call.
- Automatic CTI number lookup verifies whether the caller is on a cellphone and can receive an SMS or Messenger message.
- Messages can be created by typing, copying and pasting from other applications, or by using message templates. The screen pop gives agents a complete history of all messages sent to or from the caller's number, including automated messages sent from business systems.
This integration includes AWS Lambda functions that use the WEBTEXT CPaaS platform API. The interactive voice response (IVR) service uses these Lambda functions to identify whether a number is mobile, and to send an initial message to the caller inviting them to contact the agent via a non-voice channel.
