Exploring The Benefits of Cloud IVR Services Over On-Premise Systems

Cloud IVR Services are considered to be for big companies that receive hundreds of calls in a day. But this perception is changing with rising competition among small businesses. Automating calls is one aspect, but answering every incoming call to a business is the most important need for the business, especially SMEs. For the small business owners it is highly important that they or their staff are able to take calls anywhere and not miss calls.

So, cloud IVR services have become an essential requirement for SMEs these days. A cloud based system works 24×7. It receives calls even during non-office hours and stores the call records for future purpose. Those calls can always be returned ensuring no loss of possible business leads.

Cloud IVR is an advanced technology that enables a computer to detect voice and DTMF tones input via keypad. IVR (Interactive Voice Response) is an automated telephony system that lets callers interact with a company’s host system via a telephone keypad or by speech recognition, after which they can service their own inquiries by following the IVR dialogue. Interactive voice response system collects information, looks up information, and routes calls to the right recipient. It lets your callers get information or assistance quickly using only their voice or telephone pad.
