Increase completion rates

Increase completion rates with the patented Spoken Smart IVR. When speech recognition flags a caller response with a low confidence score, rather than asking the caller to repeat the response, the Smart IVR continues to the next question and sends the utterance to a Silent Guide for correction. The result? With each Guide monitoring up to 10 simultaneous calls, increased recognition rates, completion rates and caller satisfaction scores.


Improve the customer experience

Most callers opt out of IVR automation the first time they are asked to repeat a response. Improve the customer experience by eliminating the need to ask callers to repeat themselves—let the Silent Guides make the corrections instead!


Implement 100% automated self-service

With the Smart IVR's Silent Guides improving speech recognition rates, more callers remain in the IVR to completion. One organization moved 8% of all call volume to 100% self-service automation with the Smart IVR.
