How IVR Can Increase Revenue During a Pandemic

Interactive Voice Response is a telephony menu system used for identifying, segmenting, and routing a call to the appropriate department.

In turn, that speeds up processes, which is beneficial to companies and customers. Sometimes an IVR system can handle every aspect of a caller’s needs.
