What is an IVR?
An IVR is an Interactive Voice Response. Have you ever rang a company and been greeted by an automated machine? That is an IVR. In more detail, an IVR can be explained as an automated, self-service menu that is presented to customers whenever they call your support line. Customers may be given options similar to ‘press one for home insurance’ or ‘press two for car insurance’, once customers have chosen the options relevant to them, they are connected to an agent who specialises in their area of concern.
What is AI?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the creating of intelligent machines that replicate the work of humans. Cognitive computing allows businesses to offer more efficient services to customers, improving their overall customer experience. The Klearcom AI platform is designed to function more efficiently and intelligently than a traditional IVR testing platform. Klearcom can test the domestic IVR call path through one simple test, alerting any issues instantly.
How does Klearcom help?
Klearcoms key focus is to improve customer experience, ensuring all services run smoothly. For example, we’ve all found ourselves in a situation where we have rang a company, spent what felt like hours going through an automated system to eventually be transferred to an agent. We then experienced poor/muffled audio quality, breakages on the line, call drops and found ourselves constantly repeating. Often, we may not have even gotten the answer for the question we were ringing in relation to. This leaves us frustrated and annoyed. Klearcom works to improve this experience by carrying out regular testing on IVR systems to ensure callers do not experience disruptions, agents are well equipped to answer the queries asked, and problems are solved as efficiently as possible.
Did you know an outage on an IVR system could cost a company up to $500’000 dollars an hour? That's why at Klearcom we provide domestic IVR testing with instant results.
What is a domestic IVR test?
There are three categories of IVR testing; DIVR (Discovery IVR), RIVR (Regression IVR Testing) and LIVR (Load test IVR).
Explore your customer Call Path locally and provide assurance to your business that your lines of communication are clear. By testing real customer engagement, DIVR collates a holistic view of your global number footprint, IVR accessibility and a fully referenceable script database. Providing assurance that your business delivers the best possible CX each and every time.
Klearcom DIVR ensures that no matter where the customer journey starts to where the customer journey ends, you will have visibility of each leg of the experience and the assurance your call quality is to the highest expected standard.
RIVR testing helps organizations have a real-time 360-degree view of their telecom infrastructure through one unified platform. Klearcom’s platform replicates customer experience (CX) in local markets, along the full call path from number to IVR and end agent. Meaning Klearcom has the technology to call an organisation as if they were a customer, testing the overall experience of the call as it is happening in real time. Once the RIVR test is complete Klearcom will instantly have the results of any issues presented along the line. Klearcom will test all aspects of the line ( TFN, Network, IVR), rather than focusing solely on one vendor, meaning there are no blind spots or missed issues. Klearcom RIVR testing ensures organizations are first to know of all voice challenges before they impact their end customers.
Load Test IVR:
Development teams are consistently under pressure to ensure their contact center is delivering the best CX they can achieve. The reality of this pressure is that other processes meaning IVR testing takes a back seat. Ultimately Klearcoms LIVR tests to see if your IVR system has the capacity to keep up with the level of calls demanded i.e Can your IVR system handle 1’000 calls at once? Or will it crash? Klearcom can automate the full process and identify any capacity, regression or functional challenges within your business. An overloaded system can result in decreased production, revenue and CX.
More specifically, the Klearcom platform tests for the following when carrying out an LIVR, DIVR or RIVR test;
Connection Testing: This is the most common and widely used test within the Klearcom platform. A connection test allows customers to validate if their customer facing phone numbers are connecting. The Klearcom servers will generate live test calls from the countries of your choice, exactly the same way your customers would, our servers will then identify if the number is reachable or if there were any connection issues.
Voice Quality Testing: Through Klearcom non-intrusive testing you will have the ability to generate live test calls to your customer facing numbers. Once the call connects, the Klearcom solution will identify connectivity and call quality on the line in a matter of seconds. Voice quality testing can be enabled locally within the country of your choice and reporting will provide you with data on the call experience.
IVR Transcription: Creating a global IVR map can be difficult without the power of automation and localised presence in each of the regions you want to test.
