WHAT IS AN AUTO DIALER

An auto dialer is a software service designed to automatically retrieve a list of phone numbers and initiate outbound calls. Once a call is connected, the auto dialer performs a predefined task.

HOW DOES AN AUTO DIALER WORK

In a call center environment, an auto dialer is an integral component of the IP telephony system or IP PBX. Both agents and the auto dialer connect to the IP PBX. The auto dialer accesses a database, retrieves a list of phone numbers, and begins dialing the numbers automatically through the IP PBX. Upon connecting a call, it executes a predefined task such as playing a voice message or detecting digits, and subsequently transfers the call to an available agent.

AUTO DIALERS WITH ANSWERING MACHINE DETECTION (AMD)

In addition to placing calls efficiently, auto dialers are equipped with advanced features like answering machine detection to enhance their effectiveness. By analyzing the audio stream during a call attempt, auto dialers can detect patterns indicative of an answering machine, such as extended periods of silence or specific tone sequences. This capability enables them to differentiate between human and machine responses, optimizing the handling of outbound calls.

BASIC TASKS OF AN AUTO DIALER

PRE-RECORDED MESSAGES

An auto dialer dials an outbound call and plays a pre-recorded messages and offers to the caller and either performs other tasks or disconnect the call.

DIGIT DETECTION

After performing pre-recorded offers, auto dialer can wait for the caller to press any digits or hangup the call, if caller choose an option by pressing any digit then auto dialer connect the call with the agent.

COMPLIANCE MANAGEMENT

Auto dialers help ensure compliance with regulatory requirements such as TCPA (Telephone Consumer Protection Act) and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) by providing features like opt-in/opt-out management, call recording consent, and call time restrictions.

REPORTING AND ANALYTICS

Auto dialer all generate report and analytics of the overall dialing procedure. It helps the business owner to understand the customer requirements and quality of the service.

BENEFITS AND USAGE OF AUTO DIALER

PUBLIC MESSAGING

Auto dialers are utilized to disseminate public messages in specific scenarios to raise awareness about important information or events.

TELEMARKETING

Auto dialers are widely employed in telemarketing to engage potential customers by providing information about new products and services, ultimately aiming to boost sales.

AFTER-SALE SURVEYS

Auto dialers streamline the process of conducting surveys by automatically dialing numbers and presenting survey questions to respondents. This efficient method allows organizations to gather valuable feedback on a wide range of topics, from customer satisfaction to market research, in a timely manner. By utilizing auto dialers for surveys, businesses and institutions can gain insights to inform decision-making and improve services or products.

MAINTENANCE SYSTEMS

Auto dialers are employed in maintenance systems within production units to promptly notify the designated personnel about any process failures or issues.

SECURITY SYSTEMS

Auto dialers play a crucial role in security systems by automatically alerting authorities or designated contacts in the event of a security breach, such as unauthorized entry or an alarm trigger.

EMERGENCY CHECKS

Auto dialers are instrumental in emergency checks by rapidly contacting relevant personnel or authorities in critical situations, ensuring swift response and resolution to emergency incidents.

INVENTORY MANAGMENT

Auto dialers can be integrated into inventory management systems to alert relevant personnel about low stock levels, product shortages, or other inventory-related issues that require attention.

TYPES OF AUTO DIALERS

PREDICTIVE DIALER

A predictive dialer is a sophisticated tool used in call centers and telemarketing operations to streamline outbound calling processes. By analyzing various factors such as historical call data, agent availability, and call center metrics, the predictive dialer intelligently predicts when agents will be available to take incoming calls. This predictive capability allows the system to dial multiple numbers simultaneously, ensuring that there is always a call ready for an agent to handle once they become available. Furthermore, predictive dialers play a crucial role in reducing the rate of abandoned calls. By synchronizing call volume with agent availability, they help ensure that incoming calls are promptly answered, thus improving customer satisfaction and increasing the chances of successful call outcomes. Predictive dialers are utilized extensively in telemarketing to efficiently reach out to a large number of customers and offer services.

SEQUENTIAL DIALER

A sequential dialer works in a way that it waits for the availability of an agent then dials an outbound call, perform auto dialer tasks and put the calls in the call queue for the agent. So, Sequential dialer only dials a number when an agent is available and agent can the connected call. Sequential dialers are commonly employed in telemarketing to systematically reach out to customers and offer services.

SPEED DIALER

A speed dialer is a tool designed to rapidly retrieve a list of phone numbers and automatically initiate calls to those numbers. It streamlines the process of reaching out to multiple contacts quickly and efficiently. In telemarketing or other call center operations, speed dialers are particularly useful for tasks that do not involve direct interaction with an agent, such as delivering pre-recorded messages or conducting automated surveys. Speed dialers are used to send public message, collecting feedback and Post-call Surveys.

SMART DIALER

A smart dialer operates by notifying customers about specific information pertinent to their needs. In the banking sector, this might involve alerting customers about their account balances. In billing systems, the notifications could pertain to upcoming bills or low balances. In inventory systems, the notifications might indicate low stock levels of a particular product.

CALLBACK DIALER

Call back dialers are employed in call centers when a caller prefers not to wait for an extended period in a queue. In such instances, the call center's phone system prompts the caller to press a designated digit to request a call back using the same caller ID. When an agent becomes available, the auto dialer initiates a call to the caller's number and connects them directly to an available agent.

HOW TO DEVELOP AN AUTO DIALER

One of the most effective methods for developing an auto dialer is through a VoIP SIP SDK. Using programming languages such as cSharp, VBNet, Delphi, VC++, or other development tools, developers can create auto dialer applications capable of fetching data and phone number lists from databases and initiating calls using VoIP SIP SDK. VaxVoIP offers a VoIP SIP Server SDK specifically designed for such purposes, and sample code for auto dialers can be found on the website, facilitating the development process and ensuring compatibility with various systems.

COST OF AUTO DIALER SOLUTIONS

The cost of an auto dialer varies based on factors such as its simultaneous call capacity, type, and supported advanced features. Pricing typically ranges from a few hundred to several thousand dollars per month per service. Alternatively, VoIP development kits offer one-time costs, allowing for the swift development of comprehensive auto dialers within one to two weeks. VaxVoIP SIP SERVER SDK is one such option, providing the tools needed to create robust auto dialers with advanced features like answering machine detection.
