The IVR payment system is PCI compliant and uses the highest level of security, so your customers don't have to worry.
What is IVR Payment Processing?
IVR stands for interactive voice recognition and is a way to quickly route customers to automatic payments over-the-phone or check account information. An IVR payment system uses custom voice prompts to provide customers with options of checking account information, balances, or to make payments. Customers respond to the IVR phone system using their voice or DTMF tones that are recognized.
Reduce Overhead Costs and Decrease Hold Times
IVR payment processing alleviates the overhead costs associated with additional call center agents to answer phone calls. Using our IVR phone system doesn’t require additional employees for increased calls. Customers can have a choice to speak with existing staff or quickly make a payment though the IVR system. Instead of waiting for traditional business hours, IVR payments can be made 24 hours a day. Allow your customer service operators more time to offer better service and less time entering payments.
Hold times play an important factor of whether or not a customer makes a payment over the phone. In a study of one call center, 50% of customers abandoned phone calls after waiting 45 seconds. Reducing customer hold times can both increase customer experience and increase bill collection. During periods of higher call volumes, our IVR phone system can reduce customer wait time to pay bills.
IVR Payments for Faster Bill Collection
Customers using PayIVR™ don't have to be stuck on hold, which means faster bill collection. Providing IVR payment processing allows customers to check their bill and make payments when it's convenient for them. Customers can also be provided with the option to pay on multiple accounts in one call. To further improve their customer experience; they can provide a description to differentiate between which account they are making a payment on. Giving the option of an IVR payment system increases customer satisfaction and offers a customized experience. Using custom voice prompts combined with multi-lingual (optimized for Spanish speaking) provides customers a payment solution that they control.
