Whether on-premises or hosted, conversational IVR automates more calls by treating each caller like your most important customer: "Welcome back Sarah! How can I help you?"
Touchtone and speech IVR might have been “good enough” in the past, but not anymore. Instead, conversational IVR engages callers using intelligent conversation: “Welcome back, Jim. Are you calling about the order you placed yesterday?”
Today, “easy” is the number one customer service demand – and a 20% increase in simplicity results in a 96% increase in loyalty. With nearly half of all customer service handled on the phone, an IVR that makes it easy for callers has a huge payoff.
Nuance natural language technology powers conversational IVR. Statistical models, intelligent dialogues and design best practices come together to predict and capture the intent of conversations – delivering answers and completing transactions faster than ever.
Creating a positive opinion of your company means making it easy for customers to get what they need. With conversational IVR, your callers will feel like they’re talking with their very own personal assistant.
