All Things Interactive Voice Response

  1. Callers dial the customer service number provided by the company.
  2. A pre-recorded voice greets callers and explains the different menu options. “Press 1 for checking, Press 2 for savings, Press 3 for fraud etc”
  3. The caller selects an option and another pre-recorded audio clip (usually pulled from the company’s database) pops up giving you commands to help you complete your requests. You can either use your voice or the phone’s touchpad to enter the required information.
  4. If a caller does not find the solutions to their requests, they usually press 0 or automatically get routed to a live representative.
