Traditional contact centers have had a tumultuous year. With a global pandemic that enforced strict social distancing regulations, most on-premise contact centers were forced to close. They were caught off-guard, not only having to adapt to a remote working environment, but simultaneously dealing with an increased call load and more demanding customer expectations. Equipping agents with the right technology to work from home became a time-sensitive necessity to ensure business continuity.
As a customer experience partner of AWS, we saw first hand how the demand for cloud-based contact center solutions exploded in response to Covid-19. Today’s consumers demand the convenience to digitally engage with businesses 24/7. Customers don’t always want to make a phone call. Instead, they prefer to send a digital message, on their channel of choice, from the convenience of their own device.
At Local Measure, we pride ourselves on building intuitive CX products that empower brands to create exceptional experiences for their customers. The result is Engage for Amazon Connect, an omnichannel agent desktop purpose-built for Amazon Connect. It enables contact center agents to manage inbound customer calls and direct messages across WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Twitter, email, web chat and SMS all via a single inbox.
