Visual Interactive Calling

Connect customers with better service, right from your mobile app.

Mobile technology has changed the way you communicate with customers—and raised the bar on the level of service they expect from you. Today, personalized on-demand attention isn't just a "nice to have." It's becoming the norm. Your users are getting accustomed to getting access anywhere—from any device—shouldn't yours expect the same?

Visual Interactive Calling from Verizon gives your customers real-time access to contact center agents any time they need it, right from your mobile customer service app. That helps you deliver better, faster service while making your contact centers more efficient. Advanced authentication tools make every interaction more secure, helping you reduce telephone fraud. Plus, our service connects with call routing systems from a number of vendors, so you won’t have to switch platforms to start using it.

Focusing on better engagement and improved customer experience will continue to be a marketplace differentiator for your agency.

Improving the customer support experience

Your customers today are using their mobile devices in the private sector to with applications allowing them to book and change travel or lodging reservations, request special accommodations, schedule services, arrange for car services, or even manage their finances. In many instances they are probably finding that they often need help navigating that process, especially at the last minute and when an issue arises, customers get frustrated and abandon applications originally created to assist them in self-service. This can translate into a poor customer experience and compromised provision of services.

By including Visual Interactive Calling as part of your mobile application:

The customer can initiate calls from directly within the app via the Web Real-Time Communication (WebRTC) standard.

The call will be routed from Verizon to your agency's call center, where an agent will be able to instantly access the caller's name, location, and other CRM data your company has tied into your back-end helpdesk app.

The agent will be able to view the caller's mobile device screen, and push content onto that screen to provide prompt and interactive support wherever the caller initiated the call from the app.
