So what is a Call Center?
Call Center is a place wherein a group of people takes and / or makes calls to provide support to the customers, as well as to sell products and services. The people who make and take the calls are referred as agents. The calls are dialed and routed with the help of automatic dialers which are configured with the server(s) and the computer system(s). Furthermore, these automatic dialers make and routes the calls with the integration of internet via VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services.
Inevitable to say that just like other businesses, call centers are also on a constant look out for a solution which allows them to increase their business efficiencies with fewer overhauls.
They are indeed in a search of an effective dialing solution, which can bring value to their business. And dialer is the first place to start for them. A professional call center is always in search of a dialer –
1. That allows them to increase the call flow, along with the agent calling capacity.
2. That allows them to increase the agent’s performance by reducing the downtime.
Automatic dialers have always served as one of the best alternatives for call center business. But with automatic dialer’s agents faces concerns regarding busy tones, more number of answering machines, fax tones as well as the no answer signals. These concerns are the serious factors affecting the business, especially for the outbound call centers. This is because of the server downtime issues and less productivity, which ultimately hampers the business.
What is Hosted Predictive Dialing?
Swamping all these difficulties, hosted predictive dialing takes the potentialities of dialer to a whole new level and have proven to be the most effective solution for call centers around the world.
Hosted predictive dialing or much commonly known as hosted predictive dialer automatically dials a list of telephone numbers, however unlike the normal automatic dialer it connects only the answered calls to the agents. It works on a computerized dialing system that uses statistical algorithms to make the calls and reduces the time that the agent spends waiting between the calls. At the same time, it also reduces the call flow when the agents are busy talking with the customers on phone and when no agents are available to make calls.
Due to these algorithmic calculations the hosted predictive dialing is able to screen and eliminate the nonproductive calls which include answering machines, fax machines, busy signals, no answer and the disconnected numbers. This allows the agent to directly interact with the customer without worrying about the unproductive calls. Ultimately, this saves a huge amount of time by eliminating the unnecessary calls, allowing the agents to perform at their full potential.
