The study, entitled 2019 IVR Payments Customer Adoption Study looks at how customers bill payment behavior changed when presented with a new payment option.
MIAMI and TORONTO, September 17, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Datatel Communications Inc.(Datatel Inc. in Canada), a leader in Payment Technology and IVR Payments, recently completed a study focusing on IVR Payments Self-Service vs. Live Agent Payments with respect to a customer adoption. The study, entitled 2019 IVR Payments Customer Adoption Study looks at how customers bill payment behavior changed when presented with a new payment option.
The two over the phone payment methods studied were:
1. A 24/7 Self-Service Pay-By-Phone system – with no agent involvement
2. Agent assisted/transferred – where the agent first speaks to the customer and then transfers the customer to the automated pay-by-phone system
The findings for the organization that was the subject of the study over the course of the first three (3) months of their IVR Payments adoption showed that customer preferences for bill paying methodology appeared to undergo a significant transformation over that time period. While the possible reasons for this were still in the process of being determined at the time this analysis was prepared, the implications for the business and its staffing needs are significant should they prove to be indicative of a long-term trend.
