What Natural Language Understanding (NLU) can do for IVR?

Picture: “Her” (film) – A man talking to a machine… Natural Language Understanding (NLU) can be a complementary in-side programing feature or a specific engine for an IVR.

IVR self-services costs are 6 times less than a live agent call… [Report]

An new interesting report from ContactBabel has revealed that the average cost of a telephony IVR self-service session is 65p, compared to £3.87 for a live agent call, £3.70 for an agent-handled email and £3.00 for a web chat session. “While the future of customer contact will involve the extremes of highly personalised live service on the one hand, and the increasing use of automated systems on the other, we’re seeing that businesses and solution providers are looking to build strong links between automated and live service options to support seamless transitions as required,” said Steve Morrell, author of the report. “Self-service can truly be ‘win-win’ for customers as well as businesses. In the past, most self-service has been about cutting businesses’ costs, but the joined-up thinking now being shown and the increasing acceptance that it’s now an omnichannel world is […]

Article: Explaining the (non) adoption and use of interactive voice response (IVR) among small and medium-sized enterprises

This article by University of Geneva – Switzerland (by Caroline Kähr and Martin Steinert) talk about the (non) adoption of IVR self-service technologies and use of interactive voice response (IVR) among small and medium-sized enterprises. It also explores why advancements in IVR technology are leading to a growing number of self-service options and opportunities for big corporations to boost productivity.
