History of IVR technology - Interactive Voice Response - Part 1

In the 1980s, thanks to hardware development IVR technology became affordable for more companies. But the most significant leap, which defines today’s IVR tools came from computer telephony integration, where all customer communication related data and voice are integrated into one platform.
