Modern IVR Systems with Alltel Voice Prompt Menus

Refining the customer experience with intuitive IVR services.

At a time where everything is one message away, something must really be important for a customer to call. They could be finalising their decision to buy, or have already made the purchase and need after-sales support. Having an interactive voice response system can mean the difference between earning a new customer or losing one.

A voice prompt menu or IVR service is a simple and low-cost way of making your call flow smooth and convenient for customers. This system takes customer service to a whole new level by minimising long holds, eliminating distractions for your staff, saving time on multiple transfers, and ensuring first call resolutions.

What is a Voice Prompt Menu (IVR)?

Voice prompt menus (IVR), otherwise known as interactive voice response systems, is a functionality that gives callers control over where their calls are directed. This automated call forwarding system is the lovely voice that tells you to ‘Press 1 for Sales, Press 2 for Support’ to connect your call to the right person or department, when calling a business.

How do Voice Prompt IVR Solutions work?

Alltel Voice Prompt Menus are compatible with any of your business numbers. This includes extensions within your phone system, landlines, mobiles, and inbound numbers.

When a customer calls, a recording announces your business name and thanks them for calling. A list of options will then be presented so they can choose which person or department they need (Press 1 for Sales, Press 2 for Support).

Once they enter an option on their keypad, the IVR system transfers the call according to their selection. With IVR prompts, your calls flow more efficiently with no effort on your part.
