IVR Software Routines from DSCDatabase Systems Corp. has developed an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system that provides callers with the ability to automatically interact with a phone system while obtaining information or performing transactions. By presenting the caller with recorded prompts and menus, an IVR accepts input from the caller using phone keypad input.
IVR software development tools are provided by Database Systems Corp. along with complete application development services provided by the professional staff at DSC. Applications are developed using common programming languages. Please refer to the DSC IVR software manual for complete details regarding these development tools.
Software developed for the DSC IVR system is portable and can be transferred to any other WIZARD analog or PACER digital phone system. Thus the investment in your phone application is not lost as your organization grows from a small analog IVR phone system to the larger digital PACER series.
