IVR is the integrated voice recognizer, using which the parents and students can get various information of the institution by calling an IVR number. This will help the parents with limited access to internet or ERP system to gather information and get connected to our ERP system by just calling a simple IVR number.

Working and Implementation Process
- 1) Every institution using our ERP system will receive an IVR number along with an institution code.
- 2) The institution needs to circulate the IVR information to every user. The SMS and Email system in the ERP notice board can also be used to send the IVR information.
- 3) Parents can also see the IVR system information and how to use it (user manual) in their ERP login under "Information Center" module.
- 4) When the parent will call the IVR number they need to provide the institution IVR code.
- 5) Once the code is provided the IVR will play a welcome message or any voice message the institution wants to play.
- 6) Then it will ask to select module by pressing module number.
- 7) Except admission module the IVR will ask for student device id and ERP password to provide whatever information the parent wants to know about the student(s).
- 8) In case of the admission module student id is not required where the IVR will provide the current session admission information.
- 9) If the information is not sufficient for the parent then the IVR will provide the support number of the school or redirect the call to school support number.
