The team at Connect First came from several Interactive Voice Response (IVR) companies. An over-simplification would be to say that the Connect First platform is a highly complex and tightly integrated IVR system. Our expertise goes back to the late 1980s, when the very first systems were being developed. Over this period we have learned as much as anyone about the proper ways to build IVR applications, streamline scripting and make sure nobody feels like they’ve been dropped into a Voicemail Jail.
In a market complete with the consumer bent on self-service, you can drive greater satisfaction and reduce costs with a powerful Interactive Voice Response (IVR) platform.
