Predictive dialing is a method of making several automated outbound calls without the use of agents. Answered calls are then passed to agents. A computer makes dialing decisions based on certain algorithms to support business objectives.
Predictive dialers came into existence about 30 years ago, and mainly were used by the banking sector for debt collections. However, many other types of business have since adopted predictive dialing methods. Although they began as hardware solutions, they’ve become software as a service (SaaS) solutions based in the public cloud.
Predictive dialers can save agents time by eliminating the need to dial numbers manually. While physically dialing numbers might not seem like much of a time-waster, it often takes up to 30 seconds—and that time adds up.
