Vocantas Stands above the Competition for Smart Grid Exceptional Innovation
OTTAWA, ONTARIO June 16, 2014 — Vocantas, developer of Interactive Voice Response Solutions, is pleased to announce today that Visual IVR for Utilities has won a 2014 Smart Grid Product of the Year Award from SmartGrid.TMCnet.com, a TMC and Crossfire Media sponsored technology media website.
Utilities OnCall Visual IVR , powered by Jacada, is a menu-driven interface for utility companies that extends the traditional IVR to the smartphone. Now utility end-users have clickable and touchable menu options for account access, bill payments, meter reads and more all from your company’s mobile website or the user’s smartphone. By expanding its service from an aural interface to an aural and visual interface, Vocantas has made its IVR solution more inclusive and convenient, and therefore a better experience for customers. “Visual IVR puts the power of the smartphone graphic screen into the Utility customer’s hand” said Keri Fraser, Vice President Marketing and Business Development, Vocantas. “Utility customers can pay their bills or update their meter using just their smartphone,” continued Keri.
