What is an auto dialer?
An auto dialer is typically a software-based outbound contact center solution, which helps agents by automatically dialing customers’ phone numbers from a database of leads. Depending on the company using it, the system can be configured to play a prerecorded message or connect the call to a live agent. Basic dialing modes include:
Automated phone dialers are widely used as customer support or telemarketing software, but their benefits are also being seen in other fields. Apart from outbound sales calls and surveys, you can also conduct calling campaigns as/for:
- Public reminders (e.g. government bodies advising constituents to vote)
- Emergency notification solutions (e.g. schools alerting parents of a campus emergency)
- Appointment scheduling and appointment reminders (e.g. doctor’s offices reminding patients of a scheduled visit)
How does a dialer work?
An automatic dialing system isn’t a pain to set up. You typically only need the dialer software, a computer, a voice modem*, and an active telephone line. If you’re using VoIP, you won’t need a modem (and the physical telephone line).
It all starts with the auto dialing software telling the computer which numbers to auto dial and how to respond to different scenarios (i.e. when it gets a busy signal or a voicemail, or when a live person picks up the phone). But before the phone system connects, the software decides which number to call and the duration of talk time.
Calls are usually answered within 25 seconds, which is about the amount of time it takes for a phone to ring four times. If no one answers, the call will be dropped and forwarded to voicemail. This is also the case for busy signals. Here are some key technologies behind a dialing system:
- Voice broadcast - Relay an important message to a list of customers simultaneously.
- Interactive voice response (IVR) - You can use voice broadcast with an IVR and include an option that involves pressing a key to generate touch tones, allowing the recipient to listen to a call recording and interact with the system.
- Answering machine detection - As the name implies, it detects whether or not a call is being picked up by an actual person.
- Call routing - Once the software recognizes a person or an answering machine, it takes action accordingly.
Are auto dialers illegal?
Given that automated phone calling can seem too intrusive for the comfort of many individuals, there have been questions about their legality. There is, in fact, an existing law that limits the use of automated phone dialers. But don’t let that send you into a panic—unless you use them irresponsibly, there is nothing for you to worry about. To ensure you can avoid conflict with the law, partner with a reputable provider like RingCentral.
How much is an auto dialer?
Depending on your needs, be prepared to shell out a few hundred dollars for standard, downloadable software that can manage only one outbound call at a time, to thousands of dollars for professional, more advanced software that allows thousands of automated outbound calls per hour. Dialer software providers can charge upfront, per call, monthly, or annually. You’ll be able to save more when you get comprehensive cloud call center software like RingCentral Engage Voice.
