IVR - Interactive Voice Response
What is IVR?
Interactive Voice Response (IVR) allows telephone callers to have
a "conversation" with computers and information resources
through touch-tone input. IVR prompts callers in a human voice,
accepts telephone keypad (alpha or numeric) as answers, and then
communicates with databases or host computer systems to enter or
retrieve information for the caller. Each response takes the customer
to another question. This sequence is repeated until the caller
receives the needed information or completes the task.
How does IVR integrate with my fax on demand system?
IVR and fax on demand go hand in hand. IVR allows your callers to
navigate through your system to find the documents that they need.
This eliminates the need for a caller to download a list of documents
and then call abck to choose the right one. With IVR they can choose
from a list of documents or serach for a particular document and
get it all on the same call.
