What is IVRS?
IVRS stands for Interactive Voice Response System and basically it is a software runs over telephone network as a front end application.
IVR is a technology that allows a computer to interact with humans through the use of voice and DTMF tones input via a keypad. In telecommunications, IVR allows customers to interact with a company’s host system via a telephone keypad or by speech recognition, after which services can be inquired about through the IVR dialogue. IVR systems can respond with pre-recorded or dynamically generated audio to further direct users on how to proceed. IVR systems deployed in the network are sized to handle large call volumes and also used for outbound calling, as IVR systems are more intelligent than many predictive dialler systems.
IVR systems can be used for mobile purchases, banking payments and services, retail orders, utilities, travel information and weather conditions. A common misconception refers to an automated attendant as an IVR. The terms are distinct and mean different things to traditional telecommunications professionals—the purpose of an IVR is to take input, process it, and return a result, whereas that of an automated attendant is to route calls. The term voice response unit (VRU) is sometimes used as well.
IVRS role is to interact with the user through phone's keypad (DTMF). IVR system can be configured in a way where it can fetch responses depending upon the user's input on their phone's keypad.
A simple example of how IVR system can easy your day to day task can be explained from the above graphic. You can configure your IVR system in a way that after working hours either your calls land on a Voice Mail i.e., caller can leave a recorded message or they can opt for a call back.
