Maximizing IVR Value
Several factors can affect whether a premise-based system, hosted service, or on- demand platform is best for you. The white paper “Selecting an IVR Deployment Model” provides five questions to help discern which model matches your needs:
What is the strategic value of the self-service channel, and how does each platform support the goals of the business?
What is the capacity profile of the application, and what are the requirements for reliability and availability?
How will the platform protect and extend the investments I have already made?
How future-proof is the solution? What feature enhancements and technology upgrades are anticipated?
What is the total cost of ownership for the different platform options?
For a full explanation of these considerations, download the white paper from the Resource Center at www.tellme.com/spring09.
