While Amazon Connect provides the tools to build your own CCP, DC.Gov did not have the skillsets in-house nor the time to develop and maintain a functional UI. They approached the ConnectPath team to deploy ConnectPath CX to add a wide range of features to drive customer, agent and supervisor experience. DC.Gov also required additional omnichannel features and mobile support to continue adoption of their ever-growing range of services.

The customer deployed Amazon Connect initially and realized they still required some additional features and custom functionality. ConnectPath was deployed within minutes leveraging DC.gov’s existing Amazon Connect instance. Once ConnectPath was deployed DC.gov was able to provide the call control for the agents and the supervisor visibility required to better manage their contact center. Because ConnectPath managed the call control on Amazon Connect, the team was able to customize how a call flow was handled if an agent misses a call whether that be a forced release or placing the agent back into a ready state. These types of custom activities can’t be done directly in Amazon Connect and ConnectPath solves these use cases.

ConnectPath’s streamlined deployment instantly extended their amazon connect platform into a true omni-channel contact center solution. This provided an open platform for future features, insights and the ever-growing list of communication channels to be added without increasing their operational workloads. Dashboards on both the agent and supervisor desktops gave DC.gov a real-time “live-look” to see all the interactions queued, this enabled the business to adjust to the volume and make the best use of their agent resources.
