NextGen Voicemail

Taking care of your callers when you can't

Not answering phone calls negatively affects your customer KPIs, causing frustration, directly impacting CSAT, and creating a perception of unresponsiveness and unreliability, which, in turn affects customer NPS. Customers exert more effort to reach the company, deteriorating CES.

Did you know that 20 to 60% of calls remain unanswered? Still, standard voicemail systems are considered a burden for the users, an annoyance for callers, and a blind spot in your omnichannel customer interaction strategy. NextGen voicemail can handle any missed call of a company, whether on general company numbers, personal fix or personal mobile numbers.

Use cases include delivering callback requests or voicemail messages to any REST-enabled application, like #Interact, CRM or other contact-center applications.
