A predictive dialer uses a series of algorithms to predict both the availability of agents and called party answers. The system adjusts the appeal process for the number of agents it provides will be available when the calls it places should be answered. The predictive system will monitor the results of the calls it places , detecting how the calls it makes are answered. It will reject unanswered calls , busy numbers , disconnected lines, answers fax machines, answering machines and similar automated services. The predictive dialer will only connect calls received by people to waiting agents . This process frees agents from the task of manually dial phone numbers and then listen to ringtones, calls unanswered or unsuccessful.
The system allows to significantly increase the time an agent goes on communication rather than waiting . Recent surveys indicate an increase in talk time of twenty minutes in time nearly fifty . The predictive dialing system is most appropriate for lists of low quality and a large number of agents , but a surprisingly high contact rate can overwhelm the system leading to call abandonment.
Predictive dialers are widely used by telemarketing organizations . These telemarketing organizations use the predictive dialer to allow their agents to have more contact with customers . Predictive systems can also be used by market research and management services debt which must personally contact and talk to many people by phone companies. Most commonly predictive systems are used as a quick and easy way to automate all kinds of calls that would otherwise be made manually by a call center.
Predictive dialers are usually based on the fact that if a person sit and manually dial 1000 people a large percentage of these calls will not result in contact with someone at the other end . Of the 1,000 calls , usually only 25-35% would actually connect to a live person . The rest of the calls will not be answered at all because they would fax machines , answering machines , modems other electronic devices , other calls are network errors or invalid numbers . For call centers that make many outgoing calls , which is a problem. In a manual call center , an agent will spend about 80% of their time listening to the ringing of the phone waiting for someone to talk to or deal with invalid numbers or answering machines and only about 20 % of their time speech made a contact. The predictive dialer will filter unproductive calls and allow the agent to have more contacts and less time waiting for a call.
Smart predictive dialers combine auto dial telephone with voicemail and agents who are ready to respond to calls from the transmitter. When a live answer is detected, parts numbering and presentation recorded message. This will give the call recipient the opportunity to speak with an agent to complete the transaction. The message is a consistent greeting that identifies the caller , the nature of the call, and the opportunity to speak to an agent. The predictive dialer provides a phone agent is available when the call recipient asks to speak to an agent.
