Interactive Voice Response (IVR) is an automated system that connects your customers to your call center and guides them intelligently to the appropriate agent or piece of information they are seeking. Where communication is key, modern automated systems can provide significant value to your business. By elevating the quality of your customer services while also keeping the costs of running such sophisticated systems down, IVR can become a valuable partner for your business.

Read more below to find out how a modern IVR by Routee can help your company provide a seamless customer communication experience.

Deliver an exceptional customer experience that elevates your brand image

Modern IVR systems provide a rich user experience with greetings and prompts that convey everything that your brand stands for in a compact audio presentation. The tone of voice along with the appropriate script, or even the music you choose to reinforce your brand image to the callers, can work in your favor in many ways.

Similar to logos and choice of colors on the web, the right voice and message, can also invoke trust and reassurance to your call-in customers. They, also, provide another important gateway to your company’s products and services. The immediacy of the medium is a fertile ground for cultivating your brand image further, to customers who are looking for a quick answer to a query or human guidance to decide on the most appropriate choice.

Reduce operational costs and increase efficiency

Through an intelligent and powerful IVR system your company can reduce operational costs without making concessions on quality. Interactions that are dependent on customer agents can make a real dent on your company resources. With an efficient IVR system you can provide high quality customer support services at a fraction of the traditional voice interaction cost. Save time and increase customer satisfaction by relying on a fast automated experience without straining your contact centers or current infrastructure.

 Conversations that are driven by advanced AI can provide customers with more personalized interactions. Voice-driven IVR naturally responds to prompts, questions and queries, elevating the self-service experience. Customers engage in short conversations in their own language, using full phrases that can navigate menus and reach the correct information. In the event that the IVR system cannot understand the caller’s query, it automatically switches to a live agent without delay. 

Call center efficiency, revisited

A modern IVR system is a powerful tool for your company. Advanced automation and AI can provide a professional communication solution that not only assists your current customers in their requests but also makes a sale. Callers often hang up when automated call centers fail to route their requests to the appropriate agent or recorded information. This means that businesses could lose potential sales and hurt their brand image. It is therefore necessary for your company to adopt an intuitive and efficient IVR system, to eliminate such dangers that could affect its established image.

Moreover, with the adoption of a modern interactive response system your business can gain access to useful metrics. Accurate customer information can help you shape your services according to the needs and preferences of your operational market. Knowing what your customers want and the information they often seek can help you improve your services and deliver better customer care.

Routee tailored solutions

Routee can help your business optimize its customer communications in many ways. For example, important clients can connect directly with a personal manager. Alternatively, they can have their orders handled automatically by the system, through a self-service menu mode. This swift handling of services adds value to your company and fosters repeat business patterns.

One other area where Routee can improve the efficiency of your current operations is the automated order confirmation. In this case, the IVR system makes a call to a subscribed client to confirm a placed order, as well as the date and time of delivery. Similarly, the client can change the delivery details by calling back at your company and navigating to the correct option without ever reaching an agent.

The benefits of an advanced IVR system even extend to e-shops. 

When customers are reminded of abandoned carts through an automated call, their interest for a particular purchase of product or service could be rekindled. If questions arise, the system can easily forward the call to an agent for handling any queries and help complete the sale. 

With IVR being an intelligent automated system, two-way communication can also be achieved. With the Routee API, it is possible to send customers information about orders via SMS and messages in instant messaging platforms. Businesses can receive feedback from customers when they are willing to rate the quality of the delivery service. A simple customer reply via an SMS can log a review to the information system of the e-shop automatically.

These are just a few use cases where IVR from Routee can help a business improve the efficiency of its call center. Adopting intelligent automation for all your communication needs is what any modern, forward-looking business needs today.
