IVR providers help businesses and their customers have easy access to a wide variety of automated services. IVR systems help all businesses because they greatly reduce the need for live operators and customer service representaives. Of course every smart business still employees customer service representatives, but now instead of spending unnecessary labor on answering phones and losing calls to busy signals, companies are choosing to use IVR software to automatically answer a high volume of calls.
With the use of an automated answering service, customers who really want or need to speak to an actual customer representative will be transfered to an employee. Customers who do not have to speak to a real person will not have to wait on hold endlessly as their concerns can easily be dealt with by an automated system. As an example, a customer ocould phone their cell phone provider to find out how many daytime minutes they have left without waiting to speak to a customer service representative.
Great IVR provders are able to create applications that are specifically tailored to fit each company that they work for. For example, a bank would need special security features in their automated phone teller system. Most IVR systems at banks ask a customer for their specific bank account number and PIN. This is to protect a customer from theft and fraud and to ensure that information is being provided to the correct person.
Just as IVR applications are uniquely designed to fit each company that they are used for, IVR platforms are as well. Larger companies need much more server space than smaller companies, which means a more robust operating system as well. A good IVR provider can custom-make both platforms and applications so that smaller companies can avoid paying for hardware and software that they don't need and that larger companies don't pay for servers and operating systems that come up short.
