800 Phone Answering Software
Toll free phone numbers (generally 800 numbers and their equivalent) are very popular for service and sales organizations, allowing customers and prospects to call your organization anywhere in the country at no charge.
Our IVR solutions (Interactive Voice Response) and phone answering software add another dimension to our PACER call center solutions. An IVR processes inbound phone calls, plays recorded messages including information extracted from databases and the internet, and potentially routes calls to either in-house service agents or transfers the caller to an outside extension.
It enhances the PACERís current robust features of predictive dialing, ACD, and digital call recording.
This 800 number system acts as a toll free answering service, front ending your phone, collecting useful information from a caller before the call is transferred to an agent. And the IVR programming system could fulfill the callerís request without a transfer.
Pacer IVR solutions give your organization complete 24 by 7 capability, providing around-the-clock information to your callers.
By responding to prompts provided by our phone answering software, callers can now receive any information you choose to make available. Call centers in particular can become instantly more productive by letting the phone system gather caller information, verify caller identity and, if necessary, determine the best service representative to handle this request.

"OPEN" 800 Number and IVR Systems
Most 800 number services are built into the phone system or are self contained programs running on a separate system, allowing limited access to outside applications. PACER Interactive Voice Response systems operate in a client/server environment and the script that controls our 800 number systems can be developed on the Pacer Phone System, on a system residing on the same network as the Pacer, or even on a system that resides on the Internet using our ivr programming language. This program can run on the same server that contains your data and application programs.
There are several advantages to using this technique. 800 number applications now have complete access to all the information available to your existing database programs. The 800 number system can perform functions such as dealer lookup, account update, or information access, and simply pass the results back to the PACER phone system to be played to the caller.
800 number applications can be developed using traditional programming languages such as C, C++, or even COBOL through a rich set of 800 number software and telephone answering software APIís. We also provide you with our own 800 number software scripting language called EZTRAN (which runs on Windows, Unix, or Linux IVR) for ivr programming of 800 number applications.
XML Push Automatic Phone Messaging
The PACER IVR/800 Number Answering system fully supports XML Push client/server applications.
Application servers can now send XML protocol messages to our PACER phone system to automatically dial a number and play a recorded message.
Text messages can be transmitted and converted to a voice message using our text to speech application software.
Multiple phone numbers can be transmitted as well as multiple messages, with touchphone response and call transfer capability.
