Automated speech recognition (ASR) takes IVR systems to the next level. Gather customer information and match it with data from your CRM and back-office systems to deliver personalized, conversational service.

Speech technologies eliminate constraints dictated by standard touch-tone IVR applications and deliver a better experience, while increasing customer adoption of voice self-service. Aspect offers ASR solutions in most languages along with voice biometrics for re-assuring voice authentication.

IVR and Contact Center Continuity

When IVR interactions require agent assistance to resolve a more complex issue, Aspect’s IVR solutions route the customer to the appropriate agent without missing a beat.

A real-time contextual preview of customer data and interactions up until that point empowers agents to be truly helpful and productive while reducing customer stress levels.

What is an IVR (Interactive Voice Response) system?

Historically, interactive voice response (IVR) systems have used pre-recorded voice prompts and menus to present information and options to callers, and touch-tone telephone keypad entry to gather responses. Modern IVR systems also enable input and responses to be gathered via spoken words with voice recognition.

IVR systems enable users to retrieve information including bank balances, flight schedules, product details, order status, movie show times, and more from any telephone. Adding to their inbound call handling capabilities, IVR systems are increasingly being used to place outbound calls for tasks such as delivering or gathering information for appointments, past due bills, and other time critical events and activities.
