What is the purpose of the Sipleo Interactive Voice Response?

An interactive voice server in a few words

The interactive voice server improves call distribution and saves your callers and staff a considerable amount of time. The IVR lists the various paths available to your callers: logistical information, sales information, checking availability or taking orders.


Simply consulting information (delivery status, account balance, etc.) or managing routine actions (changing a package, requesting a password, etc.) is managed via the interactive voice server (IVR). This saves time for both your customers and your staff, who can devote more time to managing more complex cases.

main advantages

The IVR (Interactive Voice Response) enables you to manage incoming calls by limiting direct contact with your company’s agents, while directing and informing the caller as best you can. Continuous access to the service (24/7), an end to waiting times and priority referral of complicated requests to advisers are the main benefits of IVR.

Why introduce an IVR into your business telephony?

Adding an interactive voice server (IVR) to your telephony system is an added value for your company. It can be a source of internal productivity! It’s also an excellent way to professionalise your telephone answering service.

Informations point

The IVR is an effective way of letting people know or reporting a natural disaster, food poisoning, etc. in a relatively short space of time and to a very large number of people, without necessarily tying up staff resources.

A survey solution

This simple and intuitive tool allows you to set up short surveys at the end of each telephone conversation. This Sipleo feature then generates statistics, enabling you to analyse the feedback and improve the exchanges if necessary.

Help with company organisation

The interactive voice server is used for authentication, telepointage, on-call management, appointment reminders and web call back.

The interactive voice server offers you a whole range of functions to optimise work within your company.

Quick creation

It can be created in just a few clicks from the Sipleo IPBX administration interface.

Expiry dates

It allows you to set expiration times. The caller did not make a choice in impartial time? You can relaunch the announcement from your interactive voice server or send it to an advisor.

Level construction

It can be built on one or more levels (without additional cost or difficulty).

Managing a number

It can simply manage the activation or deactivation of a telephone number from the administration interface of the Sipleo IP telephone switchboard.

Loop playback

It allows you to activate playing your menu in a loop. Is one of your customers lost or unable to make a choice? This returns to the IVR reception or the menu repeats itself again. It all depends on the scenario you have chosen.

Inserting audio file

It can play an audio file or a voice synthesis, created on the MiXoR tool thanks to synthesized voices or recorded voices.

Software coupling

It makes possible the coupling of the ACD and the CTI, so that incoming calls can be routed automatically (without manipulation of the interlocutor) to another menu, group, extension, answering machine or extension.

Call distribution

It can link and assign calls based on the skills or knowledge of your agents (bilingual English, technicians or even a product/service specialist), using the ACD (Automatic Call Distribution) from Sipleo.

Easy call management

It facilitates the work of your employees, by responding to the simplest requests from your customers (consultation of information or common actions), without human intervention.

4 tips for building a good Interactive Voice Server

#1 Don’t “lose” the caller in the customer journey

The user must not get lost in the different levels of your interactive voice server (IVR). It is therefore necessary to always give them the choice of contacting an advisor!

#2 Get to the point

The attention of your correspondents is more limited on the telephone than on a visual medium. Put the correct number of choices (no more than 4) and classify the information (sales service, after-sales service, etc.). Your contact should never become impatient, because an IVR is there to save time!

#3 Reassure the caller

Your correspondent must know that he is in the right company and that he always has the possibility of going back if his choice is not suitable. This point is also essential if you want to have a professional and efficient telephone reception.

#4 Knowing how to end a call

Once the caller’s request has been processed, it is important to thank your caller and end the call with a positive note.

For example: “Your order has been processed. We thank you for your call. See you soon. »
