Dial by name for convenience and productivity

SpeechAttendant® is a voice-driven auto attendant solution that lets callers simply speak the name of a person, department, service or location and be immediately transferred to the right destination – without the hassle of navigating menu options or waiting to waiting to speak with an operator.

"It paid for itself within six months."

SpeechAttendant connects to your PBX or IVR and uses Nuance’s advanced speech recognition technologies to deliver an enhanced self-service experience to your customers and rapid ROI to your organization. Organizations can easily route callers through menu-driven options and provide frequently requested information such as operating hours, mailing address, and driving directions to callers.

By offering your callers the convenience and ease of use of a speech-enabled auto attendant system, your organization can improve customer experience, enhance your corporate image, decrease telecommunications costs and increase employee productivity. 

SpeechAttendant is available in two configurations: a complete package which integrates with your PBX and Open SpeechAttendant, a VoiceXML solution for your IVR.
