Fast INFORMATION ACCESS FOR CALLERS

Comprehensive multilevel IVR for Cisco UCC solutions

Information at the Touch of a Button

Finding your way to the right person via the DTMF* or IVR** menu when a call comes in is usually not very popular, but it is necessary in order to guide customers to the right information efficiently and promptly. Therefore, two points are key: 1. the right concept, 2. the right technology to implement the concept. This is where the ProfIVR module comes into play: Simplicity and flexibility to implement any defined concept clearly and quickly. With loads of features, ProfIVR is more than just a multilevel IVR.

Callisto ProfIVR – Your Best Choice

Powerful

ProfIVR includes extensive configuration options to quickly and efficiently configure any simple or complex call flow concept of the customer.

Flexible

The multiple options for configuring multi-level IVR menus, as well as the ease of administration, allow for both dynamic, time-controlled, and static, administrable flexibility.

Simple

With ProfIVR, you can easily and quickly configure multi-level IVR menus with individual announcements and time-controlled routing for any application.

Flexible from A to Z

The process for enabling customers to obtain the right information by phone quickly must first be conceptualized. Depending on the company and the industry, simple, complicated, or even complex structures or processes can be created. Implementing this variety of possible solutions requires the greatest possible flexibility in technology. This flexibility was the focus of the ProfIVR development:

  • Upstream ACD with any inbound numbers and routing options
  • Freely definable DTMF menus
  • Freely selectable greeting and DTMF announcement for each menu
  • Time control for each DTMF menu
  • Each DTMF menu item points to a submenu item or to any other routing

The Call Routing Power Pack

Flexible call routings are indispensable for the implementation of a call flow concept. Even here, ProfIVR offers more than usual: ACD numbers, registered times in time management, as well as the individual DTMF menu items can be routed as follows:

  • to any other DTMF menu
  • transfer to any phone number
  • blind transfer to any phone number
  • bridge to any phone number
  • start another Callisto application
  • to a ProfACD waiting loop
  • to a VoiceMail box number
  • end call

How About Starting a New Application?

The ProfIVR power pack can do more than simply provide IVR flows and guide you through to the right contacts. ProfIVR can also start any Callisto application through ACD number, registered time in time management, or per DTMF menu item. Examples and ideas are for instance:

  • include another ProfACD instance
  • check and forward the caller number in a CRM
  • raise an alarm
  • query a database and trigger an action
  • release a micro-billing amount
  • read out a web page
  • etc.
