Hello Government is an extremely cost-effective solution, as it enables government organizations to utilize advanced voice recognition solutions to maximize the benefits of E-Government when reaching the masses. Hello Government provides 24/7 access, improves E-Government services and covers a larger geographical area via the phone services.

Hello Government is designed to:

  • Consolidate multiple services with a well-designed and consistent caller interface
  • Provide callers with faster access to information and transaction services using voice recognition technologies
  • Recognize multiple Arabic accents and dialects, and provide multi-lingual support and an understanding of natural language
  • Allow barge-in callers to interrupt the system and speak without waiting for a prompt to finish
  • Provide universal commands at all times (i.e. the caller may ask for help, may choose to repeat prompts or request an operator at any time)
  • Provide large vocabulary voice recognition support for the names of streets, names, cities, etc.
  • Allow callers to transfer to a live agent, if necessary
