Interactive Voice Response (IVR)

Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems allow WaTech customers to automate routine functions, and use a telephone to get information from a computer database or other data source. IVR can automatically provide answers to frequently asked questions by allowing customers to call a designated phone number, enter an authorization code, and then securely interact with your database to get the information they need. This automated process reduces staff time, reduces operator errors, and enhances customer service. IVR services are generally available seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

Features & Benefits
