Self Help Recording also called as Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technology can help significantly improve customer support.
Interactive Voice provides automated response service capabilities by enabling customers to use the keys on a touch-tone phone to access information, such as bank account balances, flight arrival and departure times, and package delivery status.
This capability is provided by using a pre-recorded human voice stored on a computer hard drive, or by using text-to-speech technologies. These pre-recorded options are accessed via customizable touch-tone dialing (DTMF) phone menus.
Some systems offer a self-service option that includes an unlimited number of phone menu options such as playing a message, routing an interaction to a queue, sending a fax, opening a sub-menu, and other features.
