News and Notes May 2012
We're planting more 'Radish seeds' with videos, alliances, training, and product enhancements!
Hate IVRs? You are not alone and the Wall Street Journal agrees! Help us 'Ease the Pain' of Interactive Voice Response (IVR) systems! Add your comments about IVRs at our website. A May 4th Wall Street Journal editorial, Press 9 for More Options, points out how automated phone answering systems really don't provide customer service as intended. Join the discussion. Let us know about your experiences with frustrating voice menus that take forever and impel you to scream at the phone! Our ChoiceView Visual IVR is a solution — it lets mobile callers see and tap menu choices much faster and easier.

Funny IVR Video. Check it out at Please like it and spread the word.

NEW! ChoiceView Agent 2.0 'blooms' with enhancements. ChoiceView Agent 2.0 for enterprises incorporates numerous features and enhancements, including: (1) encryption of client-related information, (2) ability to save ChoiceView session history locally on the agent's PC, (3) screen pop integration for Avaya and Cisco systems, (4) simplified manual searching for ChoiceView clients, (5) an optional, smaller ChoiceView footprint on the agent's desktop, and (6) easy access to local and network files for sending. These enhancements save company reps time with callers — especially with complex transactions that require multiple visuals and exchanges of information. Time and transaction completion are frequently used metrics in contact centers.
