Our company is a startup that is just starting to get wholesale customers. When we realized our customers needed support using our products, we set up a Contact Center via Amazon Connect. It has been very useful in allowing us to scale up very quickly, and provide services to our company as if we were a large corporation.

  • On reports and analytics, [I feel] Amazon Connect is slightly behind, and it should be perfected.
  • [In my experience], Amazon Connect lacks social platform integration, which is convenient and resourceful currently.
  • [I believe] Amazon Connect should include a queue management feature, for the call centers and customer help.

Altitude uCI offers some CRM capabilities that Genesys Cloud does not. It offers the option to store multi-dimensional interaction outcomes and presents them in reports. Altitude uCI agent scripts can be more elaborate than Genesys Could ones, and its reports are fully customizable. While Genesys Cloud is moving toward that direction, it still doesn't offer the level of customizability Altitude Xperience does.

We worked through a Request For Proposal to check different Contact Center platforms, we evaluated Talkdesk, Amazon Connect and Genesys PureConnect, all of them as a SaaS platforms, and trying to go to a pay per use model. The best option for us was Amazon Connect, with a pure pay per use model according to the minutes of use, instead of the number of agents. As our goal was to automate the maximum number of contacts, we didn't want a license model based in the number of agents
