IVR voice was first introduced in the 1970s to automate tasks in call centers, but the technology was complex and expensive. In the early 1980s the first mainstream market competitor emerged, and made IVR voice a more feasible feature for call centers to purchase. However, IVR did not become vital for call centers until the late 1990s.

Benefits of IVR voice includes:

  • Enhanced business image: IVR software lets companies appear larger than they are. For example, an IVR system could offer customers the choice of transferring to sales or support, while both choices could lead to the same person.
  • Improved customer service: IVR voice enables callers to reach the right person the first time.
  • Lower costs: IVR voice reduces costs associated with hiring a receptionist to route calls.
  • Better customer experience: Customers with simple transactions can avoid the wait to speak to a live representative, as an auto attendant can handle the simpler tasks.
