Fully SIP based, including a graphical flowbuilder for easy & fast creation of dialogues.
What Is IVR Outbound?
Outbound IVR refers to a phone system technology that initiates outgoing calls and offers the recipient a self-service IVR menu. This system comprises of audio messages and menu choices that customers can interact with using either speech or dial-tone selections. The purpose is to guide them towards their desired outcome, such as connecting with a live agent or queue, performing self-service actions, or obtaining relevant information.
Outbound IVR, which involves actively reaching out to customers and leads, has various applications, such as conducting interactive surveys, sending customer support notifications, reminders, bulk announcements, sales and lead contact, and more.
While outbound IVR typically relates to making phone calls using VoIP technology, it can also encompass intelligent virtual agent (IVA) systems that engage customers through alternative communication channels.
Typical communication channels for outbound IVR include:
2. SMS texting
5. Social media
6. Website-based chatbot
7. Mobile app
How Does Outbound IVR Work?
Outbound IVR operates by establishing contact with a customer, either through voice or a digital messaging channel, and then offering interactive menu options for the customer to take specific actions, connect with an agent, provide input, or access information.
Typically, outbound IVR utilizes automated outbound systems like auto dialers or proactive messaging campaigns to initiate contact with customers. Once connected, the IVR menu is delivered through the chosen communication channel. As the customer makes selections, the IVR system collects data and responds by following a predetermined call flow or path, enabling the customer to accomplish tasks such as reaching an agent, inputting information, or receiving a message.
Here’s a breakdown of the step-by-step process involved in outbound IVR:
- Establishes contact with the customer
- Customer engages with the IVR flow
- Collects customer information
- Provides self-service options
- Routes the call accordingly
