# Minimum Time in IVR

## Definition

**For the contact center** - The shortest time callers spent working contiguously with the voice application during the monitored period.

**For a service** - The shortest time a caller associated with the selected service spent working contiguously with the voice application during the monitored period.

This statistic includes interactions derived from transfers.

## Calculation

When an interaction changes from the **Data Collection** state to any other state, Ivanti Voice compares the shortest amount of time the interaction spent contiguously in the **Data Collection** state with current value of **Minimum time in IVR** statistic **for the entire contact center.**

•If the sum is less than the current value, Ivanti Voice changes the value of the statistic to the sum.

•If the sum is more than the current value, Ivanti Voice does not change the value of the statistic.

If the interaction is associated with a service, Ivanti Voice also compares the shortest amount of time the interaction spent contiguously in the **Data Collection** state with current value of **Minimum time in IVR** statistic **for the associated service.**

•If the sum is less than the current value, Ivanti Voice changes the value of the statistic to the sum.

•If the sum is more than the current value, Ivanti Voice does not change the value of the statistic.

Ivanti Voice treats individually each instance of an interaction being in the

Data Collectionstate; Ivanti Voice does not sum up the individualData Collectionstates for a single interaction.
