A predictive dialler, whether a dedicated system or a capability of a CTI system or ACD, is used to make a large volume of call attempts and connect only answered calls to agents. The market for predictive diallers has, to date, been relatively modest, but the advent of diallers in a software-only configuration has the potential to extent the cost effectiveness of such systems to smaller call centres.
Consulting Projects Involving Predictive Diallers
Occidental Communications has undertaken projects involving the acquisition of a predictive dialling capability for some clients, and has reviewed and made recommendations concerning the use of diallers for others.
