IVR: An Office Automation Tool

Interactive voice response is a telecommunication service that uses automation to answer and distribute incoming calls. More and more businesses are integrating IVR into their office communication systems to manage calls and free agents for more complex calls and tasks.

Such a system can identify why a call is being made and transfer the caller to the right department. In some cases, it can even assist the caller in completing a task such as making a payment or getting product information. Using IVR for your healthcare service can vastly improve caller experience and, by extension, customer satisfaction. IVR is excellent for providing information to customers in a fast, efficient manner.

Creating an IVR System for Your Business

To design and set up IVR for your healthcare service, you first need to purchase the service from a virtual service provider. Then, you can create the phone tree from the provider’s control panel. Here, you can decide what steps and tasks will be made available to callers. Remember that a simple and easy-to-follow system is much better than one that is complex and asks too much of its callers.

Start by having callers choose what language they want or what main category they need help with. For example, a pharmacy may create a phone tree template as such: Press 1 for information about specific drugs. Press 2 for recall information. Press 3 to renew prescriptions. Press 4 to register a complaint. Press 5 for office hours. Then, based on caller input, the IVR can provide more information through pre-recorded messages or transfer the caller to the right department and agent.
