What is a voice?
Communicating through voice might be in some cases easier than via live chat or email. Calls are especially popular with non-technical questions such as pre-sale or billing queries that can easily be solved over the phone.
Voice communication in LiveAgent can be used as:
- Phone to Phone (Customer calls from their phone and the Agent picks it up with a hardware phone on their end)
- Phone to PC (Customer calls from their phone and the Agent picks the call up in their LiveAgent Agent Panel.)
- Phone to Smart Device (Works similar to Phone to PC, but a smartphone is used instead of a computer. A customer can call from their phone and the agent on the other side can pick up the call using the LiveAgent phone app on their mobile device. The App uses mobile data to run.)
- PC to PC (by placing a call widget on your website, you can allow customers to call you directly from their desk by using their computer. Just like Skype.)

What are the benefits of voice communication?
The advantage of voice communication is that it is more natural than written communication. The human voice is used, so we hear emotions, and it is easier and faster to explain certain things that may be more difficult to describe. In some situations it is also more possible as the person may need to be contacted quickly, but cannot write.
In the digital age, customers expect efficient and personalized communication. Voice is a powerful tool in establishing human connection and providing exceptional customer service.
IVR (Interactive Voice Response)
The Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system enables callers to navigate a phone system before speaking to a customer support representative, play custom recordings, and execute actions like routing the caller to the correct agent or department. It can be set up separately for each number through a YAML script in LiveAgent and involves 3 mandatory sections: online, queue, and offline. IVR examples are available, and all recordings needed have to be added to LiveAgent accounts. Other features offered by LiveAgent include integrated customer support through various channels and safety measures like SSL.
The given text demonstrates examples of IVR (Interactive Voice Response) scripts, including basic, advanced, and dynamic IVR, as well as DTMF input. It covers different scenarios such as voicemail, offline, and queue, and provides tips and tricks for setting up an IVR system.
LiveAgent offers an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) feature for call center software, allowing for organization of calls and routing of callers to appropriate departments. The IVR setup can be done through YAML scripting, but LiveAgent provides a guide and preset examples to help. While not the easiest setup, LiveAgent's 24/7 customer support can help. Custom recordings can also be added. The IVR performs well if planned correctly. The feature is only available in the Large plan starting at $49 per month per agent. Overall, the IVR does its job well with flexibility and customization options, but may require some skill and effort to set up.
