How to Improve E-commerce?

E-retailers are booming.  More and more buyers are going onlinpants commerce screenshote.  Yet there are opportunities to improve the customer experience while increasing the shopping cart size and decreasing abandonments.   How can we further improve e-commerce?


The answer comes from using ‘voice with visuals.’  Here’s why.

  • 87% of USA adults have access to Internet browsers and increasing (http://www.internetlivestats.com/internet-users/ ).
  • The world has gone mobile. > 79.1% of USA mobile owners have smartphones and increasing. 5 million people in the U.S. owned smartphones (79.1 percent mobile market penetration) during the three months ending in January 2016.

Add True Visual IVR and Visual Live Assistance

Adding visual capabilities to an existing or new Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system allows instant 2-way, ‘voice with visuals’  sharing for all callers during standard voice calls. Callers can see visuals while talking via a mobile app on a smart device, or simply using a browser on a smartphone, tablet, PC, or Mac. For shoppers, it’s a welcome change to call a company and both see and hear information.

A True Visual IVR provides callers with:

  • Easy-to-navigate, tappable visual menus
  • Easy-to-submit visual content
  • Easy-to-understand, fast visual responses from the IVR
  • If needed, easy transfer to a website or live agents for continued ‘Voice with Visuals’ collaboration.

For e-commerce organizations, vendors, and OEMs, a True Visual IVR also–

  • Originates calls from/to any phone and any network
  • Launches from a phone call, through a mobile app, or at a website
  • Provides secure, fully encrypted data transactions
  • Sends caller data to live agents, if call is transferred
  • Upgrades existing or new IVRs via script changes only, with NO new hardware or source code.
  • Realizes significant IVR cost savings by eliminating some of the text-to-speech conversions. ()

By 2020, virtually all large employer respondents will offer telemedicine. Utilization by employees remains low, but is increasing steadily.”
