I did some work on a hosted IVR application a couple of weeks ago. I will see if I can get the relevant information for you.

I should be able to post it for you tomorrow.

Hi All,

We currently provide solutions either as a direct sale or hosted model. We are currently hosting for British Airways with the Speech Recognition Brochure Request Service and this application is taking 1.2M brocure requests per annum.

We are also delivering hosting for RBS & Vauxhall Motors.

I suppose it's dependant on the application and call volumnes if you wish to have a chat or would like the telephone numbers to try then please contact me.

Many thanks

A friendly word...
Hi guys,

Don't forget that CCV isn't for touting for trade - as I'm in a good mood I'll let it pass this time, but anyone posting any topic or reply with advertising content may find it vanishes pretty quickly. We do this to keep the quality high and the noise low.

IVR options
Hi Gary,

Your options will depend on what flexbility you have regarding your technical platform as well as what functionalities you are looking to offer and what timeline you are considering. We implemented a natural language (speech recognition) application for a large telecom recently.

Please email me if you want more information. lucas.chang@accenture.com.
