What is an Intelligent Call Routing System?

Intelligent call routing is the process of forwarding or transferring calls from one number to another using natural language processing (NLP). It involves intelligently interpreting voice requests and using that information to direct calls through your IVR. Intelligent call routing systems can be used for a variety of reasons, such as to connect callers with the right department or representative, to route calls based on their location, and to cut down on human intervention and transfers. The benefits of intelligent call routing include improved customer service, optimized workforce management, and more.
