What is Interactive Voice Response?

Interactive voice response is a telephony solution that allows you to interact with callers in your company phone system or call centre using digit-enabled prompts (press 1 for sales, press 2 for billing, and so on).

FAQs

>

Is there a limit to the number of levels in IVRs?

No, you can create as many sub-levels as you wish. However, take care to retain clarity and to not overwhelm your callers.

>

Can I combine an IVR with other call routing rules?

Absolutely. You may, for example, put an IVR in place during certain hours and then specify call distribution. Direct transfer to a group or user, ringing in predetermined order or simultaneously amongst other possibilities.

>

Can I find out how my callers are using the IVR?

Yes, you’ll have access to reporting based on selections made by your callers. This will allow you to modify your IVR accordingly - for example, if certain keys are rarely or never pressed or if callers tend to drop off at certain points.
