Moreover, predictive diallers have the capacity to increase agent ‘talk-time’ to 45-50 minutes every hour – meaning agents consistently spend around 80% of their time on the phone drumming up business and managing customer needs.
A quality cloud-based predictive dialler are like any SaaS application, in that, on the provision there is sufficient internet broadband such as the NBN; the technology is readily accessible. Furthermore, dialler SaaS typically bundles VoIP, Softphones, SIP Trunks and Hosted PBX components as a single software application, and therefore from a technical perspective, all that is required client-side is an operational LAN incorporating the internet, a suitable internet router and a network switch for devices. Operationally, you’ll need Laptop/PC’s and recommended USB or wireless headsets; as well as a contact database and/or access to your CRM and an agent script.
