In the domain of Customer Service, Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems were a game-changer. IVR systems make it easier for enterprises to provide customers with phone-based self-service. But in today’s world, the customers want more. They wish for simpler ways to engage with enterprises and quicker response and resolution for their queries.
Traditional IVR systems fall behind and do not live up to customers’ expectations because of their long and complicated menu trees, slow response time, and lack of conversational ability. This leads to more frustration than satisfaction among customers, increased number of calls being transferred to Live Agents, and ultimately higher AI based contact center costs.
The Solution – Conversational IVR
Conversational IVR is like IVR on steroids. It replaces the long, boring, and complicated menu-driven structure with Natural Language Processing, Artificial Intelligence and Quick Response capabilities. The Conversational IVR system can understand the customers’ intent, context, and content spoken in Natural Language and provide a much free form and dynamic customer experience.
Customers can talk to the bot in their own words, convey their issue or query, and get a suitable response in natural language.
No more button pressing! No more boring and repetitive script!
Customers get a personalized, convenient, and frustration-free self-service without the hassles of a monotonous menu-driven structure.
Conversational IVR reduces the requirement for Live Agents, increasing the Agents’ efficiency and decreasing overall Customer Center costs.
