A Postcode IVR is a specific type of IVR (Interactive Voice Response) that routes calls based on a postcode selection made by the caller.
The caller will be presented with a prompt to enter their postcode upon which they are routed to a pre-defined termination number.
There are three types of postcode IVR:
- Static postcode IVR
- every postcode will need to be defined in the setup
- dynamic postcode IVR
- only selected postcodes are defined in the setup and undefined postcodes will be routed to the geographically nearest defined postcode.
- dynamic postcode IVR with selection of options
- only selected postcodes are defined in the setup and the caller is presented with an additional menu of the 3 geographically nearest postcodes to choose from
A postcode IVR allows for very granular routing of calls based on the caller's chosen postcode. This feature is especially useful for clients with multiple offices or stores that want to ensure callers engage with their nearest outlet.
It can be an alternative to automated geo-routing, especially in countries where geo-routing is not available.
Please review the IVR setup guide for the steps to built your own IVR.
