Introduction

Twilio, a San Francisco-based cloud platform provider, announced its entrance into the cloud contact center marketplace with the introduction of Twilio Flex.

Highlights

  • The introduction of Twilio Flex, following a similar introduction by Amazon – Amazon Connect – will initiate a competitive disruption in the contact center marketplace in the months and years ahead. Ovum believes this has more than competitive product implications.

Features and Benefits

  • Assesses Twilio's new product offering and how it will further disrupt the contact center marketplace.
  • Analyzes the implications of the consumption-based pricing model utilized by Twilio Flex and its implication in the marketplace.

Key questions answered

  • Will the bundled Flex pricing plan, including the contact center with the telecom costs, imply less buyer flexibility?
  • What acceptance will the do-it-yourself capabilities and the consumption pricing model of the Flex have on the marketplace?
