IVR: The contact center's unsung hero
Interactive voice response solutions can get a bad rap. A lot of people, both business professionals and consumers, have a negative view of the
technology, associating it with frustrating experiences in the past.
In reality, though, IVR can prove an invaluable tool for organizations of all kinds. This is particularly true when IVR solutions are deployed in the
contact center. In a number of ways, IVR is truly the unsung hero of contact center operations.
