AI-Powered Conversational IVR

Conversational IVR Powered by Natural Language Processing

Bright Pattern’s call center software is made for self-service within your contact center through our interactive voice response, or IVR, system. Powered by Natural Language Processing, or NLP, and artificial intelligence for accurate caller speech recognition, Bright Pattern’s conversational IVR system ensures a smooth customer experience by allowing callers to use their natural language and their own words during customer interactions.

Bright Pattern’s conversational interactive voice response differs from a traditional IVR or IVR system in that it allows callers to interact with the menu in their own words through natural language technology, reducing complexity during the customer interaction. Rather than an IVR menu powered by a robotic voice, user input and customer data is collected through the customer’s voice with natural language technology. A conversational IVR is a cost-effective way to streamline self-service in call center operations and implement a conversational approach to help resolve issues more quickly, reduce operation costs, and exceed customer expectations and increase customer satisfaction.

Powered by integrations with Google and IBM, conversational IVR systems and natural language IVR utilize speech-to-text analytics, Natural Language Processing (NLP), Machine Learning, and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) to implement IVR menus with prompts to increase customer engagement, better serve caller’s needs, and handle increased call volume. Whether you operate a small business or large enterprise, turn on conversational IVR with natural language technology as part of your digital touchpoints to get the most out of your contact center to increase caller satisfaction.

After picking the right option for the query of the person, the conversational IVR will understand the request of the user, and determine what the best course of action is to resolve the person’s request. For complex requests, the IVR can connect the customer to a live agent.
