X Topic Abstract

Earlier days when you call at customer support and even with the best IVR, you get irritated and always wait for hours to get what you are actually looking for.

In this demo we will be using Amazon Connect, Lambda, DynamoDB, Comprehend, Lex, Cloudwatch and S3.

The demo is a simple example of full scale implementation of Customer Support Service. We use Amazon Connect to work as front end to the customer. Amazon Comprehend, which use natural language processing (NLP) to extract insights and relationships in text. Comprehend checks overall sentiment score through the conversation and act only when it reaches a certain threshold. Lambda function takes the input transcript field of the Amazon Lex event and call Comprehend to check sentiments. When the sentiment is neutral, positive or mixed, the response leaves it to Amazon Lex to decide what the next steps should be.

Now with AWS services your business regardless of size can offer your customers a better service experience than ever before and all at affordable cost to the company.
