Visual IVR, short for Visual Interactive Voice Response, combines traditional voice IVR with an interactive on-screen interface to enhance the customer support experience. It provides visual aids and spoken instructions to guide customers through a step-by-step support process, accessible on both desktop and mobile devices.
When a customer calls a business, Visual IVR intercepts the call, collects their phone number, and offers to send a text message with a link to the Visual IVR interface. This process eliminates the need for live agent assistance unless specifically requested by the customer.
Unlike standard IVR, which relies solely on voice prompts, Visual IVR combines voice and visual elements to manage even complex support interactions. By doing so, it offers several benefits:
Furthermore, Visual IVR lowers operating costs by eliminating the need to hire additional agents. It increases IVR containment and first call resolution rates, automating a significant portion of the customer support process. It also helps optimize agent schedules, forecast call volumes, and reduce average cost per call.
Additionally, Visual IVR enhances agent productivity. By resolving customer service issues, it allows agents to focus on sales calls, building customer relationships, and managing complex support issues. It also provides valuable insights into agent activity and the customer base, enabling managers to evaluate customer support quality and agent performance.
While Visual IVR offers many advantages, it does have some limitations. It may not be as seamless as purely digital self-service tools like chatbots or social media messaging. It is also limited to the specific customer service issues it has been programmed to handle and lacks advanced features like natural language understanding and sentiment analysis.
Furthermore, customers still need to make a call to reach customer support, and pre-recorded IVR menus can sometimes be lengthy. Instant access to live agents is not always guaranteed, and some customers may have a general aversion to IVR systems.
Despite these downsides, Visual IVR has proven to be beneficial across various industries and businesses of all sizes. Its combination of voice and visual elements provides a more comprehensive and streamlined support experience for customers.
