Genesys IVR makes life easy for your customers—and you

Modern IVRs keep track of context whether customers self-serve or shift to an agent


Take a fresh look at your IVR

Many organisations still view IVR as little more than a way to reduce costs. But, in doing so, they miss its real value—improved customer service. A well-designed interactive voice response system is fast, convenient and personalised. It drives customer satisfaction and saves time.

Think of IVR technology as the original bot—one that can connect with voicebots, micro-apps and back-end systems. And like the rest of your business ecosystem, it’s evolving. This evolution is happening in technologies like conversational IVR, which uses Natural Language Understanding (NLU), a type of speech recognition that lets a bot understand spoken requests.

Modern IVR systems eliminate slow, confusing and hierarchical menus in favour of data-backed journey options. This difference has a big impact on customer satisfaction. They’re still self‑serving and resolving issues within the IVR—but faster and more efficiently. You’ll see this blending of IVR, voice and bots in the modern Genesys system.

To maximise the potential benefits, choose a solution that takes advantage of innovations in AI, machine learning and NLU. Improve self-service with a solution that integrates into your current environment. Voicebots powered by artificial intelligence (AI) can turn pre-recorded messages into a powerful differentiator.

Get on board with conversational IVR

With the intuitive self-service of conversational IVR, your customers resolve issues faster. NLU and machine learning let callers interact with your system in a way that feels natural. Integrations with recognition vendors like Nuance enable understanding of complete phrases. Integrated dual-tone multi-frequency and speech-enabled options offer more ways to improve the experience.

Ethics and compliance

Personalise your Genesys IVR to meet customer needs

Most IVR applications present customers with identical options, regardless of context. But customers want personalisation. A customisable system lets you tailor messages, menus and treatments for individual customers. Set rules based on who the customer is, why they’re calling and the capacity of your contact centre. This improves FCR, NPS and containment rates.

Omnichannel self service microapps

Leverage powerful pre-built micro-apps

Micro-apps ease implementation and integration to lines of business and CRM systems. This makes it simpler to complete tasks and support self-service. Choose from a wide range of pre-built micro-apps—some of which are industry-specific—to customise your solution. You’ll reduce costs and improve NPS with fewer resource-intensive deployments.

"Improving IVR alone helped raise customer satisfaction and removed lots of unnecessary calls and expense."

Nicolas Wsevolojskoy
