What is an Outbound Dialer?

Posted by Ahmed Macklai on Aug 8, 2019 7:30:00 AM

How many calls do your call center agents make per day? If your center is like many, the number would be staggering to anyone outside the customer service or sales industries. However, it’s just part of everyday operations at your center - and that may be part of what’s wrong with your facility’s productivity.

You see, if you don’t have an automated outbound dialer in place, your agents are making all of those many calls by hand. Every contact they reach out to must be chosen from a list, their number identified, and then manually dialed. This may only take a minute or so for each contact. But with dozens or even hundreds of calls being made by each agent every hour, those minutes quickly add up. That lost time is lost productivity and profitability for your center.

Here, we’ll look at how using an outbound dialer in your contact center can mean the difference in marginal profit and booming business for your company - and how to get your hands on the best in the industry.

Transfers are almost unavoidable in the contact center setting. While there are many ways to minimize transfers and keep your staff on the line until they complete their calls and resolve consumer concerns or answer questions, there will always be reasons for transfers.
