transcosmos inc. (Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and COO: Masataka Okuda; TSE First Section: 9715; hereafter, transcosmos) released “Contact-Link for V-IVR”, a new visual IVR service optimized for smartphone.

As over 90% of people in their 20’s now use smartphones, more and more consumers expect businesses to provide customer support service that provides self-support solution and text communication service via chat and LINE on their smartphones, in addition to the traditional services such as voice guidance and operators.

To serve those smartphone users, transcosmos developed visual IVR service “Contact-Link for V-IVR”, a smartphone optimized customer support website. The website provides users with all information they need, FAQs and other optional features such as call center wait-time display, call-back reservation, and contact channels including call, chat, LINE and text form. With this service, businesses can not only solve users’ complains on traditional voice guidance service, but also decrease incoming calls to call centers as more users can solve the issues they face by themselves.

“Contact-Link for V-IVR” does not require huge renovation work on the contact center infrastructure and provides client companies with flexibility to choose optional features according to their specific requirements. The service is quick to implement and affordable, compared to other general visual IVR services.

Key Optional Features

  • Wait-time display (link with WebCMS)
  • Call-back reservation
  • Chat contact
  • LINE contact
  • Send SMS

※ Client companies can select the features based on their specific requirements.


  • Initial cost starts from 1.2 million JPY
  • Monthly running cost starts from 80,000 JPY

※ Please contact us for specific quotation.
