The acquisition would add Amazon Connect to TTEC’s Humanify Cloud. This would in turn provide TTEC’s current and future clients with the optionality of AWS’s contact center capabilities using a unified per user month. This would offer access to Humanify’s enhanced CX applications to complement AWS’s services.

The acquisition also looks forward to Extend TTEC’s Humanity Cloud to Amazon Connect. It would also provide clients access to an enterprise-grade API integration and deployment platform, including HUmanify’s intelligent administration, orchestration, analytics, an automation solutions, that enables rapid deployment, reduces risk and improves speed to value at global scale. 

TTEC Digital would maintain separate and dedicated AWS and Cisco sales teams which would be focused on driving client value through the Amazon’s and Cisco’s partner ecosystem.

The acquisition would also help extend TTEC Digital’s Humanify Cloud Integration and API platform to AWS, providing TTEC customers and prospects with cloud contact centre optionality and a unified per user per month. This would also offer access to over 50 enhanced CX applications to complement AWS’s services. 

Amazon Connect 

According to Jonathan Lerner, President of TTEC Digital, said “There is a fundamental shift happening across the industry. Rather than relying directly on customer experience SaaS providers, clients are turning to CX orchestrators and journey partners to build end-to-end customer-centric solutions in the cloud.”

VoiceFoundry has claimed to be an industry leader in deploying Amazon Connect as well as other AWS services that focus on creating intelligent interaction across all engagement channels. It is uniquely focused on helping large enterprise clients improve customer engagement while maximising the benefits of AWS as scale.
