The Benefits
Voicemail
Receive email with transcribed voicemail message within your email client.

Although some might consider voicemail to be an old fashioned feature, it is still used as an integral tool in many contact centers.  VoiceFoundry’s Voicemail for Amazon Connect allows contact center agents and supervisors to either listen to or read a record of the message left by a customer. Each message is quickly and automatically transcribed to text and delivered by email or sent to the CCP with the audio file. Agents can then have the choice of reading the message rather than listening to it, allowing a more discreet method of assisting the customer.

How does Voicemail work?

VoiceFoundry Voicemail for Amazon Connect leverages a blend of AWS services including Kinesis Video Streaming (KVS), Transcribe, Lambda and DynamoDB to record, transcribe and deliver the message. The application records the message, stores the captured message in a designated S3 bucket and converts the record to text, which is then delivered via email, webpage or through a custom call control panel (CCP) within Amazon Connect.
