Tell the story about this nominated product or service (up to 650 words). Describe its function, features, benefits, and sales to date:

Jacada pioneered Visual IVR technology which recognizes that voice is still a pivotal part of a customer experience strategy. Visual IVR lets you deliver a personalized and digital experience to your voice callers, enabling a better customer experience with improved self-service. Jacada Visual IVR extends the IVR to more channels than just voice. Whether customers are calling the IVR directly, engaging the company on the website, or in a mobile App, Visual IVR is there to reduce customer’s effort, improve self-service and shorten call times.

The Nominated Product – Jacada Visual IVR:

Visual IVR transforms the Voice IVR into a digital experience, improving self-service by over 10% based on our implementations at Fortune 500 companies globally. Customers struggling with the digital session can seamlessly transition from the digital channel to the agent with full context resulting in significantly reduced handle times.

By pivoting an inbound call to a digital interaction, Jacada Visual IVR allows you to surface all of your digital assets, in a single location, to your voice callers. This dramatically increases the likelihood that your customer will adopt and use your various digital assets to effectively self-service their needs.

Jacada Visual IVR is not another mobile app. Instead, it provides digital engagement on your voice channel, pivoting callers into the digital channel, and leveraging the existing mobile app if the company has one.


One Platform - Jacada Visual IVR offers a single platform that provides multiple ways for a customer to engage on both the digital and assisted service channel.

Personalization -
Develop interactions that utilize personalized, customer specific content. Link to backend databases to show only the information that is most relevant.

HTML5 and Native App –
Visual IVR can be easily embedded in the existing website or web self-service site. With plug-ins for all the major CMS systems plus provided JS Widgets. Visual IVR can render as HTML5 for display on all major smartphone web browsers. Visual IVR does not need a native mobile app installed – ensuring higher customer adoption. For customers who do have an app, Visual IVR is easily embedded thanks to native iOS and Android support.

Merge Digital Assets -
Visual IVR lets the company merge her existing digital assets into a single convenient point of access for voice callers, ensuring customers adopt the digital assets already invested in.
