GLx IP-PBX SwitchBoard

The GLx Mobile Technologies Studio is the platform that manages your IVR solutions, from creating powerful IVR applications using the GLx Mobile Technologies IDE (integrated development environment) to managing actual call flows. In addition, the GLx Mobile Technologies Studio manages your telephone services, GLx Mobile Technologies Scripts, translates text (text-to-speech) and transfers/routes IVR calls to specific telephone numbers or agents.

The GLx Mobile Technologies Platform is a proven IVR platform that delivers the reliability and flexibility for the most demanding IVR applications. Unlike traditional, proprietary IVR platforms, the GLx Mobile Technologies Studio is based entirely on open web and IP standards.

GLx Mobile Technologies IVR Scripts
Dial2Contact Scripts are used to navigate a caller through an IVR application based on their input. This may include delivering information through pre-recorded prompts, soliciting information or input using voice or touch-tones, etc. Dial2Contact scripts can easily access backend data or applications to retrieve records and provide callers with information or update the record with new information.

Dial2Contact Studio allows you to easily create scripts with plain-language tools. A script typically involves a series of “pages” that include predefined actions, for example:

“Play a sound”
“Transfer the call”
“On 3 pressed” or “On hang up”
“On 5 pressed check SQL Database”
A built in debugger lets you test your scripts before putting them into production.

GLx Mobile Technologies Scripts can be developed quickly and easily. Unlike most proprietary IVR platforms, the GLx Mobile Technologies uses standard XML-based tools to deliver rich, sophisticated IVR applications faster than anyone on the market.

We include a library of sample Dial2Contact Scripts to help jump start your project. In addition, Dialtone Technologies partners offer a broad range of pre-built and custom GLx Mobile Technologies solutions.

Data
Increasingly, organizations want to integrate callers with backend data sources. These sources include databases, mainframes, backend applications such as CRM/ERP/SFA systems and third-party information services and solutions via web services.

What is an IVR?
IVR stands for “Interactive Voice Response”. IVRs enable interaction with telephone callers, allowing organizations to automate common tasks like checking account status, getting updates on order information or paying a balance using a credit card. IVRs have been used by larger organizations because it allows them to improve customer service and reduce the cost of sales, service, and support. Traditionally, the cost of building and deploying IVR technology has put them out of reach of smaller organizations.

Today’s IVR solutions move beyond simply routing callers to the right department using pre-recorded prompts. Today’s IVR solutions are integrated with databases, back end applications and web services to enable users to enter and retrieve information in real-time.

IVR solutions are increasingly used to place outbound calls to deliver or gather information for upcoming appointments, past due bills, and other time critical events and activities.
