Voice reimagined

Published August 24, 2018
With the rise of speech interfaces on an ever-expanding array of mobile and IoT devices, consumers are used to getting what they need through simple voice commands. In a voice-everywhere world, the clock is ticking for contact center leaders to rethink the role of voice in their IVR and beyond.

Four imperatives for IVR in the digital age

Published August 24, 2018
While IVRs have been invaluable in reducing contact center costs, let’s face it: not many deliver a truly modern, intuitive and conversational experience. It’s no surprise given the rise of digital—which led many organizations to abandon focus and investment in their IVR in favor of mobile, websites and social channels. But digital hasn’t killed IVR—it’s just pushing it to be better. Customers expect the same seamless, intuitive experiences they get in the digital world everywhere they engage your organization—especially in the IVR.

Mind the IVR-to-digital gap

Published August 24, 2018
All the time, money and effort you’ve spent to shift customers away from the contact center to lower-cost digital channels are in vain if your IVR can’t take them there too. Imagine if your IVR could direct callers straight to digital channels while bringing along all their contextual data—for a faster path to resolution. It sounds great, but the trouble is the IVR usually sits in a silo, disconnected from the exciting new digital experiences that grab all the headlines (and budget). That’s where an IVR-to-digital strategy becomes critical, providing a way for your IVR to offer customers an alternative solution—like live chat or a virtual assistant that’s better suited to resolving their issues quickly (and saving you money).
