Network Interactive Voice Response (N-IVR)

Creating a positive customer calling experience relies on the efficient management of your inbound calls. Network Interactive Voice Response (N-IVR) provides the ideal platform for you to handle incoming calls effectively.

N-IVR enables customers to find the right information from the right person at the first attempt. By choosing from a list of pre-programmed menu options, the call is automatically routed to agents based across multiple locations. This eliminates the need for staff to transfer calls saving time, money and helping to increase customer satisfaction.

Benefiting your business and your customers
N-IVR systems can be used to provide and collect information. Callers can be directed to pre-recorded announcements (e.g. store opening times), or you can allow callers to leave a message during peak periods or when your business is closed.

Voicemail facilities, full administration and call statistics are provided as standard with all our IVR services. By offering flexibility without the need for capital expenditure, we can tailor our solutions to suit both single and multi-site environments.

It´s all in the number
N-IVR is only available for use with an 08 or 09 number. Using 08 or 09 numbers makes it easier for your customers to call you, and the more calls you receive, the more business you can generate. Choosing either an 08 or 09 number gives your business a single point of contact - easy for your customers to remember and simple for you to manage.

Active-View from KC provides you with an online, feature-rich tool for analyzing and managing your inbound call traffic to your 08 and 09 numbers within hours of the calls being made.
