Target Group

Amazon Connect is not a traditional phone system. It is a powerful Omni-Channel cloud contact center, with extremely flexible configuration options. It is most suited for the following use cases:

Call Center - also within large companies only one department can use Amazon Connect while other departments use a traditional phone system

Sophisticated call distribution and IVR is required

Users who work mobile and want to make calls from anywhere with Salesforce

No Software phone or desk phone should be used


Specifics to consider

Internal calls can be done only via an external number (e.g. to a mobile) or per IVR

Voice Mail and other services like call recording require additional setup

Setup of a contact center is more complex like a regular phone system
