Myth-Busting Industry Ideas About Local Presence Dialers

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Dec 10, 2019 7:30:00 AM

How many times have you seen a number pop up on your home phone or cellphone’s caller ID and seen that it was a long-distance number and decided not to answer it? If you’re like most people, you probably think, “I don’t know anyone from that area code,” and then disregard the call entirely. The call goes unanswered and you move on with your day.

Now, let’s turn the narrative around. What happens when the number that appears has a local area code? Does this change the story at all for you? Again, if you’re like most people, it makes a marked difference.

If you work in a contact center or otherwise make calls for a living, you may wish that you had a way to call from different area codes so that you could always be “local” to the people you were trying to reach. That might increase the chances that they would actually answer, after all - but how could you possibly call from all over the country without hopping on a plane and making calls midair?
