Amazon Contact Lens gives call center managers real-time call insight

Call center managers can intervene earlier, reducing customer churn

Amazon Connect, Amazon Web Service’s cloud-based contact center service, gives call centers a scalable, easy-to-use platform they can hone to meet their needs. Today, AWS announces Contact Lens, a new analytics addition for Connect that delivers real-time data on past and current calls to help boost customer service, enhance compliance and even increase customer retention.

Contact Lens is a versatile, pay-as-you-use system that leverages machine learning to analyze calls real-time and store key information for future use. A call center manager can use Contact Lens to search for a particular keyword or action and find all calls associated with it. Later in 2020, lens will offer real-time call analysis, so managers can intervene in live calls earlier.

The manager can also use the search feature to uncover all types of issues, including long pauses and customers and agents talking over each other and more. It can also catch compliance violations and off-script improvisations so the manager can retrain the agent, if needed.

This system uses natural voice recognition to uncover current issues. For example, if a customer calls to complain that a price was wrong online or they found a better price elsewhere, Contact Lens can flag these keywords and alert the manager. 

Contact Lens’ analytics are extremely deep too, as it not only creates, stores and analyzes call transcripts, but it also outlines caller and agent sentiment throughout the call. So, if a caller’s sentiment begins to go downhill, the manager can intervene. It also provides a visual representation of call characteristics and sentiments for quick consumption.

Privacy is a huge concern with call transcriptions and compliance in many industries. Contact Lens uses machine learning to detect sensitive information, like names, addresses and Social Security numbers, and redacts them. Admins can control who can access the unredacted files.
