Gama Operations Launches Cloud-Based IVR Software as a Service (SaaS) with Speech-to-Text and Text-to-Speech Applications

Gama’s virtual receptionist and powerful speech recognition solutions deliver cost-effective customer experience, and decrease the likelihood of zeroing out to speak with a live agent.

PETAH TIKVA, Israel, Aug. 22, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gama Operations Ltd., a leading provider of advanced telecommunication solutions, today announced the release of Cloud Interactive Voice Response (CIVR), a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution that enables organizations to provide their customers a superior virtual receptionist experience while lowering operating costs.

Gama's pay-as-you-go CIVR empowers organizations to provide callers with pre-recorded information on a 24/7 basis, and routes them automatically to the appropriate department, extension, or voicemail inbox, based on business rules and caller selections. Using automated speech recognition for conversational IVR communication, Gama’s cloud-based platform eliminates the constraints typically dictated by standard touch-tone IVR applications. As such, it delivers an enhanced customer experience while streamlining inbound phone traffic and efficiently routing calls.

In addition to CIVR, Gama has also been expanding its enterprise-grade voice offerings to include a range of new text-to-speech and speech-to-text applications for drivers and people with disabilities, as well as conversational virtual agents powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and natural speech recognition. The new AI-based applications interpret a caller's request by using speech-to-text algorithms, and generate responses "on the fly."

"We are making IVR more affordable, by offering a cloud-based, pay-as-you-go service that automates a wide variety of inbound and outbound calls at a substantially lower cost than live call center representatives," says Eyal Alon, CEO of Gama Operations. "Our feature-rich, text-to-speech and speech-to-text applications are simple to deploy, easy to configure, and seamlessly integrated with third-party applications. With our cost-effective CIVR, organizations of all sizes can have all the capabilities of on-premise IVR systems, without having to carry the long-term costs of technology ownership and the personnel needed to manage it."
