For consumers using the traditional voice channel from a smart mobile device, Aspect Visual IVR can act as a bridge between both worlds. Furthermore, it can help companies entice their customers to use the (less costly) self-service avenue. Ultimately, consumers will realise that starting in your mobile app that implements callback or in-app live chat might be the best way to reach out for help.
With Aspect Visual IVR, rather than controlling the IVR tree with speech or touch-tone input alone, the options are visualised through a touch-optimised mobile Web experience that doesn’t require the download of a native mobile app first. All smartphones across all platforms are supported through the use of HTML5 and SMS. Navigating the IVR application and connecting to a customer service representative is thus accelerated through a user-friendly interface. Last but not least, this option can also assist the hearing-impaired. Once connected to an agent, native mobile capabilities can be leveraged to keep a “visual bridge” and a data channel open to share documents or images securely. These capabilities can also be embedded into your existing mobile native apps.
