    Identify Phone Number Line Type with Twilio Lookup to Alert Customers over SMS or Voice Lookup Line Type Hero

    Although landlines have been decreasing in popularity with the rise of mobile phones, some households continue to use them as a primary means of contact. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 10.4% of adults aged 65 and older have a landline alone without mobile service. This demographic is important to account for when sending critical alerts and time-sensitive notifications to customers.

    In this tutorial, we are going to build a demo that checks an end user’s phone number type and sends an instant alert as a voice call or SMS depending on whether the device is a landline or mobile. You can build this in the Twilio console or programmatically. We’ll use the console in this blog post.

    Prerequisites

    What we will build

    1. A Twilio Function that uses the Twilio Lookup API to determine a phone number line …

    Configure a Proxy Number with Delivery Instructions using No Code Configure a Proxy Number with Delivery Instructions using No Code

    Keeping personal information private is as important as ever, since information thievery and unwanted contact (content warning: harassment, sexual harassment) have become more common. When ordering food online, however, keeping your information private can be difficult.

    For example, your driver may need to contact you regarding changes to your order or if they need help getting directions to your door. Instead of giving out your personal number to the delivery app, why not give a proxy number that can provide all that information instead?

    In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to configure a proxy number that will provide delivery instructions with Twilio’s no-code solution, Twilio Studio! You’ll be serving up a menu that delivery drivers can interact with to get a gate code, directions to your place, and to call you (via a proxy number) in case there’s a change to your order.

    How to Build a Low-Code SMS RSVP System with Airtable, Twilio Functions, and Twilio Studio How to build a low code SMS RSVP system with Airtable Twilio Functions and Twilio Studio

    Airtable is a great tool for prototyping applications that require a database. However, when using multiple API’s in an application, it can get complicated and tricky to juggle all the functions and parameters from different services.

    In this post, we will make a simple, serverless RSVP system with Twilio Functions and Twilio Studio that will scan an Airtable guest list for phone numbers, send a personalized message to each of them, and then update our Airtable records with the responses from each of the invitees as to whether or not they wish to confirm their attendance. Let’s get started!

    Prerequisites

    Before you begin, you will need a few things:

    Bringen Sie Ihr Unternehmen mit Twilio Studio voran Bringen Sie Ihr Unternehmen mit Twilio Studio voran

    Hallo und Danke fürs Lesen! Dieser Blogpost ist eine Übersetzung von Push Your Business to the Next Level with Twilio Studio.

    Umfragen zur Kundenzufriedenheit sind ein innovatives Mittel, um Feedback zum Aufbau eines treuen und zufriedenen Kundenstamms zu erhalten. Mit IVR-Umfragen (Interaktive Sprachantwort (Interactive Voice Response, IVR)) können Sie beim Zusammentragen von wichtigem Feedback auf unnötige Telefondienste verzichten.

    Die große Herausforderung besteht darin, die Kunden während der Umfrage bei der Stange zu halten. Genau dafür ist dieser IVR, mit dem Sie vor der Umfrage das Einverständnis der Kunden einholen, bestens geeignet. Auf diese Weise verringern Sie die Umfrageabbrüche, denn niemand wird befragt, der nicht befragt werden möchte. Außerdem ruft dieser IVR diejenigen Kunden zurück, die zwar ihr Einverständnis zur Umfrage gegeben, aber vorzeitig aufgelegt haben.

    Dieser Blogbeitrag zeigt Ihnen, wie Sie dazu Twilio Studio, unser zustandsorientierte, visuelle Workflow-Entwicklungsplattform, nutzen. Zunächst erstellen wir einen Studio-Flow. Anschließend entwickeln …

    Twilio Studioで問い合わせ後のお客様フィードバックをアンケート収集する Push Your Business to the Next Level with Twilio Studio JP

    この記事はWided Agrebiこちらで公開した記事(英語)を日本語化したものです。

    Twilio Studioを気軽にご利用いただけるよう、本編とは別に日本語ブログ「Twilio Studioを利用し、コーディングなしでIVRフローを構築する」のご用意があります。ぜひ併せてご活用ください。

    顧客満足度調査は、顧客体験を改善するために必要なフィードバックを収集する画期的な方法です。IVR(自動音声応答)アンケートを利用することで、重要なフィードバックを収集することができ、不必要な電話業務から解放されます。

    しかし、ここで課題となるのは顧客がアンケートの途中で離脱するのをいかに防ぐかで、この課題に対する解としてIVRを活用することができます。まずアンケートを開始する前に、お客様の同意を求めることができます。そうすることで、アンケートに協力してもよい人にのみ参加をしていただき、離脱者を最小限に抑えることができます。また、同意を得た後に離脱した人に電話をかけ直して、アンケートに参加してもらえる可能性を高めることもできます。

    このブログ記事では、TwilioのステートフルなビジュアルワークフロービルダーであるTwilio Studioを使った実現方法を紹介します。まずStudioフローを作成し、オペレータと話した後に顧客からフィードバックを収集するホットライン用のIVRを構築します。ドラッグ&ドロップのユーザーインターフェースを使用して、本 …
