The interactive digital solution transforms traditional IVR platform into a personalised digital interaction, simplifying customer journey by offering easier access to information at fingertips
 
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – July 28, 2019 – Cisco and UAE-based telecom service provider ‘du', from Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (EITC), today announced the launch of a first-of-its-kind Visual IVR – a new, digital self-service solution in the Middle East region that will enable du customers to swiftly find answers to their queries at no extra cost, moving from traditional IVR technology to a more visually-appealing digital customer service solution.
 
Visual IVR provides a visual interface alternative to traditional IVR: customers can see and touch their way to what they need, without having to simultaneously use their phone keypad, to listen to multiple options, repetitive information or memorise menu options. Visual IVR bridges the gap between digital self-service and traditional customer service contact channels.
 
With the addition of visual menu and rich multimedia content including text, images and video, the new self-service solution introduces new features and benefits for customers:
  • On-demand digital assistance, anytime, anywhere
  • No app download needed to access Visual IVR
  • Menu based and  flow driven support
  • Intuitive & simple to use self-service tool from web and mobile
  • Reduced time to find solutions 
  • Improved routing to specialized agents for faster support 
The aim behind the initiative is to provide an enhanced level of service in alignment with du's vision of introducing more digital services for its digitally-savvy customers and in line with Dubai's digitalisation vision. The service will be available to both individual and business customers in five languages - Arabic, English, Hindi, Bengali and Malayalam.
 
“As a company at the forefront of technology, we always look at exciting new ways to provide the customer with innovative new touchpoint that enhance our customer experience. Visual IVR offers us a unique and convenient way to address customer queries quickly,” said Fahad Al Hassawi, Deputy CEO – Telco Services at EITC. “Moreover, our customers are already familiar with voice-based IVR format and therefore very little learning curve is involved in embracing this new customer service tool. We are certain this solution will delight our customers”
 
“du is driving the introduction of visual IVR technology in the Middle East as they are the first telecom operator to deploy it in partnership with us. Together we are aiming to empower customers with more self-service channels to resolve their enquiries with no need to visit store or call contact centre,” said Ali Amer, Managing Director for Service Provider, Cisco.
 
The Visual IVR tool from du follows the recent launch of ‘Blu' – an A.I-based channel virtual assistant that helps customers with common queries which they currently seek to address by contacting the contact centre or visiting a retail store. To access the services, du customers need to call customer care on 155 or 188 (business customers) and select the Visual IVR option.
