Your customers follow the voice dialog and the system responds with prerecorded or dynamically generated audio, giving instructions and leading them through different menu options.
IVR Benefits for Business
IVR significantly improves the service and reduces operation costs. The solution helps you to serve customers 24/7 and to operate more efficiently. Customers get answers to standard questions quickly and do not have to wait for an available operator while agents deal with more complex interactions.
Identify your Customer
The system enables customer prioritization. You can divide your customers into certain groups (potential, prospective, VIP) and lead them through different voice scenarios and options.
The CRM identifies existing customers and the agent sees the communication history record during the conversation. The system is customer-friendly and helps to decrease the call duration, as there is no need to give many details. The system can also identify your VIP customers and lead them through different voice menu options or route them directly to the client manager.
IVR is often used for self-service and routing in banking (balance check, transaction history, payments), mobile (purchasing, registration), retail and entertainment (orders, bookings), utilities (account look-up, payment history, and balance), travel (bookings, check-in, hotel or flight information), televoting.
