eLocal grew revenue by 45% with a solution built in a week that allows call center managers to create IVR campaigns to connect with live leads.
IVR the old way
Even minor changes to your phone menu required software updates and weeks of effort. There was no ability to prototype or A/B test, and new features like speech recognition were always "coming soon".
IVR with Twilio
Twilio APIs let you update your phone menu on demand, with full control of your phone tree and routing logic. Create custom greetings, collect speech and DTMF input, and route callers to the best available agent.
Let your customers talk to your IVR, then turn their speech-to-text to determine their routing.
Ask your callers “How can we help you?” Analyze open-ended text using natural language processing with Twilio Understand.
Turn your greetings and information readouts into natural, human-sounding speech directly from the API.
Build the exact workflow your callers need to get to the right place quickly.
Use Twilio TaskRouter to route callers to the best available agent with the skills to address their needs.
Let anyone in your organization customize and edit your phone menu and call flows with our drag & drop editor Twilio Studio.
Choose from 26 languages and dialects without having to rebuild your phone menu.
