IVR Best Practices
This section of our technical library presents information and documentation relating to Interactive Voice Response software products and IVR best practices.
Business phone systems and toll free answering systems (generally 800 numbers and their equivalent) are very popular for service and sales organizations, allowing customers and prospects to call your organization anywhere in the country.
What Is IVR?. An Interactive Voice Response (IVR) processes inbound phone calls, plays recorded messages including information extracted from databases and the internet, and potentially routes calls to either inhouse service agents or transfers the caller to an outside extension.
It enhances our phone system's current robust features of predictive dialing, ACD, and digital call recording.
Our IVR software solution gives your organization a 24 by 7 capability, providing around-the-clock information to your callers.

The following articles are highly recommended to our clients and others who are considering implementing IVR solutions in their organization and wish to employ the best IVR design concepts.
