Interactive Voice Response (IVR) solutions

Help your callers get to the right department faster with an interactive voice response (IVR) solution.

Our custom-built IVRs greet callers with a list of options, then quickly direct them to the right place. IVRs can have two or more menu options and can be implemented with or without call answering solutions.

For example, a medical practice may ask callers to select from a list of locations before speaking to a receptionist, or a plumber may direct urgent calls to a personal mobile and route non-urgent calls to receptionists. 

Our Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems offer benefits to any size business

Immediate answering

With automated pick-up, callers can begin interacting with the IVR menu within seconds of dialling your number.

Flexible menu structures

IVRs can be custom-built as one long menu list or as a set of nested options depending on your needs.

Saves time

Both callers and receptionists save time, as callers specify up-front the department they’d like to talk to.

Call screening

Get lots of robo-calls? IVRs ensure only genuine callers get through to a real person or receptionist.

Appear larger

IVRs are typically associated with larger businesses, so using one conveys a sense of scale to your callers.

Client portal & app

You can view all calls answered by the IVR and which menu option was selected – in real-time.
