Visual IVR for Public Utility


Cost is not the only thing important to most customers. Poor customer service is motivating some to shop alternative utility suppliers. Visual IVR is promoting self-service, eliminating hold time, and enabling proactive outreach for some organizations in the public utility industry.


 




Optimized Self-service

Visual IVR is providing a method for customers who are calling you to self-service those inquiries, all without agent assistance, through an automated and interactive platform. Videos, pictures and text can now be utilized to provide much more valuable context than what is generally provided in a bill or by the traditional IVR.


If a caller does request agent assistance, the call is began in context with full caller intent collected before the call is connected to the agent.
