Zappix Sees Increased Demand For Visual IVR Self-Service Automation As Companies Tackle Impact of COVID-19
The leading Visual IVR vendor has seen increased demand for its flagship product as well as other Customer Self-Service Solutions during the global coronavirus pandemic.
BURLINGTON, MASS. (PRWEB) Apr 30, 2020 — The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has increased demand for Visual IVR and other customer service automation solutions, according to leading Visual IVR vendor Zappix. Businesses are experiencing several types of challenges because of the pandemic: an increase in the volume of calls, shifting agents to work from home, a decrease in agents’ capacity, the need to continuously engage with customers, supply chain uncertainty, and more.
Businesses adapting to the coronavirus have unlocked tangible benefits thanks to automated self-service solutions:
- By shifting common use cases to self-service Average Handling Time (AHT) has been decreased and First Call Resolution (FCR) increases
- Deflecting repetitive calls from agents to self-service allows agents to focus on high-priority and complex calls
- Customers are staying engaged with proactive communication and timely outbound engagement delivering rich visual interactions
- Wait times have risen because of unusually high call volumes. Zappix designed a solution to offer callers a self-service option while they keep their place in the queue
- Allow home-based WFH agents to complete payment transactions by offering callers a secure digital payment gateway via Zappix On-Demand Apps
- Cloud-based Zappix solutions and the powerful Zappix Studio launch new solutions within days with zero disruption to existing processes and eco-systems
