Bring IVR Automation into a New Voice Era
Mobile keeps call volumes high, but traditional IVR is frustrating. Voice interactions remain critical. Customers expect the ease of a virtual personal assistant (VPA), but IVR interactions are more complex, which is why CX leaders are upgrading voice communication. According to Forrester*, “For enterprise speech to be useful … it needs to speak in more human-like ways and solve real consumer problems.” Modernized IVR enables simple self-service calls, proactive responses, shorter sessions, and hand-offs to pre-informed human agents when necessary.

It’s Time to Have Better Conversations with Your Customers
Automated and conversational IVR elevates the customer experience (CX). Leading companies are now bringing old-school IVR through the digital transformation it needs to meet modern customer expectations.
Keep up with high call volume
Voice is increasing in usage and popularity, with mobile and internet-based calls combining with new mediums like VPAs to keep volumes high. Automation makes it easy to keep up.
Power self-service success
Automate natural dialogues and deliver results with natural language generation (NLG). It drives self-service fulfillment, IVR-to-chat or contextual handoffs to agents when needed.
Upgrade IVR & reduce costs
CX leaders know how to use technology to meet elevated expectations, as traditional IVR is bad for brand image. Plus, AI and automation reduce IVR service costs overall.
Achieve Extraordinary Results
AI boosts containment, but doesn’t replace human agents. Modern IVR arms them with customer information, reducing average handle time (AHT) per call.
monthly self-service interactions
Pre-defined journeys, deep neural networks (DNN) and natural language generation (NLG) automate self-service calls in a conversational style that just feels right.
Contact centers are expensive and traditional IVR is frustrating. Modernizing IVR can help reduce operating costs over time, delivering measurable savings.
