Why do companies use automated phone
systems? This is a question we’ve all asked – well, yelled – at least once when
dealing with a frustrating phone system. Whether it’s a simple virtual
receptionist or something more complicated, such as what you get when
calling your bank, the reasons for automated phone systems remain the same – money and efficiency. They can reduce the number of people required to man (or
woman) the phones. For some systems this is because they automate common
processes, such as taking payments or providing frequently asked for info,
without the need for a human being. For other systems it simply means the caller reaches the department they need without going
through many receptionists. Automated phone systems also work 24/7 so many
services can be provided out of hours and during holidays. They also ensure
callers that need to speak with a human being actually reached the right one.
Oh, and just in case you’re wondering, I’m not a real human being, I’m a wookie.
