Q: What is IVR?
A: Interactive Voice Response (IVR) is a part of the Universal Number software that accepts touch-tone keypad selection and provides appropriate responses in the form of digitally recorded voice. IVR is usually part of a larger application that includes database access. Common IVR applications include:
- Bank and stock account balances and transfers
- Surveys and polls IE Customer Surveys
- Call forwarding
- Simple order entry transactions IE Catalog Ordering
- Selective information lookup (movies, event, schedules, ...)
An IVR application provides pre-recorded voice responses for appropriate situations, telephone input access to relevant data and potentially, the ability to record voice input for later handling. Using computer telephony integration, an IVR application can transfer a call to a live person who can view on-line data related to the caller at a display.
