What Is A Dialer?
A call center dialer is an application that is integrated with the CRM and places outbound calls to the customers. An automatic call center dialer improves the agent’s efficiency by eliminating the need for manual dialing, which is very time-consuming.
Businesses can choose the right call center software according to their needs and requirements. Every call center dialer has features integrated to cater to the specific needs of the customers. Some of the call center dialers that make call center operations function smoothly are-
- Predictive Dialer
- Preview Dialer
- Auto Dialer
- Robo Dialer
- Progressive Dialer
In this blog, we will talk exclusively about the Predictive dialer and how it connects the businesses to their potential customers.
Predictive dialer is an outbound dialing system that automatically dials phone numbers from a list of contacts. The underlying principle behind the working of a predictive dialer is based on statistical algorithms.
What sets predictive dialer apart from other dialers is that it can predict the availability of the agents to make the next call, based on predictive algorithms. Another feature that distinguishes predictive dialer from other dialers is that it can dial multiple contacts at the same time. This ensures that the idle time for the agents is minimized, and the right number of leads are contacted
Let’s take a look at some of the features of a predictive dialer-
- Campaign Management
- CRM Integration

What Is Campaign Management and Why Is It Important?
It is an inbuilt feature of a predictive dialer that allows the call center managers and supervisors to create multiple campaigns from the same login. Campaigns that are created can be customized as per the requirements and needs of businesses. The campaigns are automated using Rules. These set rules are used to run the campaigns according to the business requirement.
Managers create campaigns to set business targets and achieve them in a defined time period. Using campaign management functionality, the managers can create, update, manage, and delete the campaigns according to the requirement.
