Interactive Voice Response (IVR)

Take customer interaction to the next level with automated call routing

Interactive Voice Response (IVR) is a technology designed to help your business interact simultaneously with multiple callers, using an automated system to obtain information and feedback from these callers, and assist them in resolving their enquiries in turn. Callers may interact with an IVR system through touch-tone keypad selection, and such systems may also be configured with voice recognition so that callers may interact with it through voice input.

Lantone Systems offers a host of Interactive Voice Response (IVR) solutions pertaining to:

  • Auto attendant functions - redirecting calls, providing preset responses, reception related work
  • Disaster recovery
  • Surveying
  • Reminder systems
  • Status updates and checks

To a great extent, IVR solutions can replace most to all work done by people at a much lower cost with add-on benefits. It is easily at least 200% more expensive to have a live agent handle a call than an IVR system. It typically costs US$1 or less for an IVR interaction versus US$5-US$7 for an agent.

Our IVR systems are suitable for handling applications that involves high call volumes, e.g. customer service enquiries and telephone banking, at lower costs while still maintaining favorable customer experiences. Our IVR systems are also essential for rerouting callers to call agents who are available or best suited to address their needs, and can come with various features that will greatly facilitate the communication between your business and your customers.

IVR solutions are not only limited to an auto attendant function but it can be used for a variety of other purposes such as disaster recovery, surveying, reminder systems, status updates and checks. Check out the integral features below

Easy to set up

With more progressive IVR technologies, all that is required is an internet connection and a browser. Your IVR system can be set up within a short duration and you can use pre-recorded messages to expedite the setup process.

Customer friendly

Customers are used to interacting with an IVR system. When you limit the number of prompts, they will be immediately directed to an agent who is most qualified to address their issues or concerns.

Automated customer support

IVR systems provide your customers with the option of helping themselves. In majority of cases, clients can use the IVR system to solve their own problems and obtain relevant information without speaking to an agent, potentially saving your agents the need to spend valuable time on assisting them personally.

Give your customers a personalized experience

With an IVR system, you can record customized greetings, messages and prompts. You can record as many greetings as you would like, so customers have a unique and personalized experience each time they call.

Reduce transfer errors

IVR systems are designed to obtain information about your callers' needs, and then route them accordingly to the appropriate department or agent for their requests, significantly reducing the likelihood of erroneous transfers.

Prioritize calls based on value

IVR systems can be configured to prioritize calls based on value, ensuring that you will never lose high-value callers to long waiting times or unsatisfactory customer service again. The IVR system achieves this by routing them to the most qualified agents, or otherwise to the head of the waiting queue.

Improve your professionalism

You can use an IVR system to improve the professionalism of your company. The IVR system will greet your customers professionally and you can use the IVR system to make it look like your company has more departments and employees than you actually have.

Increase customer service, agent and company efficiency

IVR systems allow agents to be more proficient at meeting the specific needs of the callers that are routed to them. With an IVR system, your agents will be less likely to place calls on hold, call a manager for help or transfer the call to another agent with more experience. This results in a significant increase in customer service, agent and company efficiency.

Cost effective

Implementing an IVR system negates the need to keep agents on call on a constant basis, and thus helps to reduce manpower costs. With cloud-based technology, there are no costly setup costs or maintenance costs, no installation of expensive hardware or software. IVR systems come at very affordable prices, and any company can afford to install a suitable one, regardless of their size or budget.

Handle heavy call volumes with ease

IVR systems are especially useful if you need to handle large numbers of incoming calls on a regular basis. IVR systems can automatically direct callers to the relevant agent or department, place them in a waiting queue for later service, or give them the option of receiving a callback from an agent at a later time.

Increase revenue

When customer service increases and agent efficiency increases, the results are simple. You have more satisfied customers who will be more likely to buy your products or services.

IVRs systems are smart investments with the potential to generate a huge Return on Investment (ROI). If your company does not have an IVR system or would like to migrate to a more effective or cost-sensitive solution, do talk to our representatives to have a further discussion on your needs and requirements.
