This 2-day hands-on training course offers skills and knowledge required to plan, design and implement effective touch-tone and speech recognition self-service systems. It introduces key aspects of IVR design including business issues, new technologies, tuning, logging and reporting, and improved security.

The delivery of EIG courses is hands-on and highly participative.
