What is a predictive dialer? How does it benefit your business?

What is predictive dialing?

In today’s ecosystem, sales acceleration is becoming increasingly important.

As you navigate uncharted territories, you are likely to be considering cutting-edge solutions to maximize efficiency and drive growth. From cold-calling to customer support delivery, the voice channel keeps playing a strategic role in finding leads. Nonetheless, outdated systems such as manual dialing may fall short of addressing the need for agility characteristic of our times. This is where a predictive dialer can help.

A predictive dialer is an outbound call processing system set up to optimize the efficiency of communications for Proactive retention teams, Sales teams, Traders, Telemarketers, Market researchers, Debt collectors, Insurance agents, financial advisors, etc. Through a sophisticated set of algorithms, predictive dialers can detect when a phone is active and make multiple calls to available customers. More advanced dialers are also able to route calls to the agent most qualified to take the call.

There are many advantages to integrating this technology into your business. Below, we have listed four.

Improved efficiency

Prolonged pauses in between calls can quickly add up and ultimately have a negative effect on company ROI and reputation. By distributing the workflow equally among all agents, predictive dialing can cut the unproductive time down to a minimum. This also translates into an opportunity for your workforce to learn new skills, keep boredom at bay, and remain engaged. As agents cannot handpick their calls, this will also help avoid hesitancy, biases, and discrimination.

Reduced costs

Optimizing your outbound marketing strategy will result in great financial advantages. Besides lower installation and maintenance fees, predictive dialing systems come with added desirable side effects. For example, increasing agility by limiting the interval between calls means fewer agents are needed to do the job – which in turn drives costs down whilst also growing your potential for sales conversion.

Call monitoring

By now, you are likely wise to the benefits of performance review and continuous training for your employees. The technology embedded in a predictive dialing system allows supervisors to smoothly monitor agents for performance and training purposes while also scheduling periodic reports.  Keeping an eye on customer interaction will ensure a positive experience for your prospective clients and boost their chances for a successful journey – eventually leading to conversion.

Functional storage and optimized compliance

When pursuing agility, functionality is your greatest ally. Being able to quickly pull customer information from a database has incredible benefits – from continuity of service to identifying inactive numbers and ensuring no-call requests are respected. Call lists can easily be organized to maximize the chance for availability and compliance.

Effective integration

Adopting new solutions can sometimes be daunting as some systems require the erasure of all pre-existing infrastructure and are not compatible with all devices. Auto dialing, on the other hand, allows for the integration of a variety of CRM tools aimed at simplifying customer support. This will in turn allow for increased control, visibility, and monitoring to help maximize performance, customer journey, and compliance. 

Whether you are working on a specific campaign or making general adjustments to increase your brand visibility, actualization is the best thing you can do to remain relevant in the market.

Luckily, predictive dialing is now available to help you spread your message in a more effective and profitable way.
