Speech Recognition in the Call Centre
Speech Recognition technology is already in use in a range of applications with more and more coming to the market promising to improve the customer experience and increase efficiencies.

Natural Language IVR
A Natural Language IVR enables the customer to interact with any system or device in a conversational manner without being constrained by responses.
This makes it perfect to place at the start of the call to ask a customer an open question like “how can we help you today” instead of the traditional push one for this, two for that IVR.
