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.

Cons
Amazon AWS
  • 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.

  • The reporting and analytics capabilities of Ameyo are not as robust as those of some of it rivals , it is challenging for me to evaluate the work of my teams and pinpoint areas for development as a result.
  • It does not integrate with many third party programs, because if this we are finding it challenging to incorporate Ameyo into workflows on larger scale.
  • Customer support managers may find it simpler to create customized reports with Ameyo, managers would then be able to monitor the metrics that matter most to them.

As I said previously, Ameyo is a good tool however it has a long way to go compared to Avaya. The user interface can be improved a lot as they can use it as an app instead of completely web-based. Also, the reporting can be improved substantially and make the experience much better.

Customer support also needs to improve for Ameyo. I am not saying it's bad however they need to support the users by customizing the reports as per the requirement of the user. They usually try to refer the user to videos or articles whereas the service for Avaya is that they show you a demo and not only that they customize the reports as per the business requirement

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

Avaya is very very good software. Most of the BPOs Contact Center's use them. They are very easy to use and don't use too much data also. Also, their user interface is very easy, especially for people who are not technically sound. The reports can be customized according to one's choice. I will recommend Ameyo's technical team look into it.
