What Is Conversational AI for IVR?

Conversational AI is an automated system that responds right away when customers contact your call center. Each customer will have a natural, fluent conversation with a bot that is programmed to “speak” like a real person, ask relevant questions, and get to the heart of the customer’s problem within moments. They no longer have to wait for the next available live agent or press buttons in response to stilted, recorded instructions.

Why Use Conversational AI?

Many customers are now used to the idea of getting service and support from a bot. As such, they have high expectations for how effective, intuitive, and efficient automation should be. Failure to deliver a positive experience can lower the customer’s opinion of your business and even drive them toward competitors who have better support options.

A properly programmed AI experience can help you, your employees, and your business in many ways. It can:

  • Reduce the overall cost of CXaaS
  • Allow you to reach a greater number of customers in a shorter amount of time
  • Direct customers to the proper resource more quickly, whether that be an automated message or a live agent
  • Interact with customers in a more natural way, reducing their stress and conveying that you value their time
  • Assist customers with simple requests or queries, freeing up live agents to resolve more complex problems
  • Boost customer satisfaction while reducing turnover and abandonment rates

By outsourcing your communication needs to OutPLEX, you can give your customers the level and quality of AI-driven support they expect. We have the proven experience and drive to manage your support services’ day-to-day operations while you invest into expanding and improving your core business. Below are just a few of the ways we help our clients.
