IVR stands for Interactive Voice Response. It is a technology that allows a pre-recorded voice to interact with humans through voice and DTMF tones input via the keypad. Meaning, when you call, the voice on the other end will be computer-generated. You use your phone’s keyboard to create a certain outcome.
This method allows your customer to pay for services availed using their mobile phones. From ordering movie tickets to home delivery, almost every division has used IVR for payments at some point.
With IVR, all a customer has to do is call the number given by the company, punch in his user ID and he gets the status of his order. This makes it simple for the customer while also avoiding the human intervention, thereby reducing the need for extra manpower.
A system that is completely automated is one of the most basic uses of IVR. It is the easiest way to communicate with people of all languages, without having to hire people who speak all these different languages.
Cash on delivery orders, if not verified, incur huge expenses for companies. Companies now use a simple IVR solution that ensures the order is verified by the customer before it goes out for delivery. This saves time, money and human resources for the company at stake.
