Hosted Predictive Dialer

Hosted Predictive Dialer Software for Call Centers

On average, only one in five outbound calls actually connect to a live person, consuming a lot of time. For a call center, that means a lot of wasted productivity as their agents attempt to connect. Businesses can use an outbound dialer to help, but in many cases that raises concerns about regulatory compliance, increased cost, and increased complexity for agents and administrators. Then there are the customers, and the last thing you want to do is bother them with nuisance calls.

While you can’t produce more time, you can maximize it with the inContact dialer. The inContact hosted Predictive Dialer software and TDM voice quality SIP Trunking can increase talk times and agent productivity so you can deliver a better customer experience for less. This sophisticated dialing engine also includes preview, progressive, and message lay-down dialing to match your business needs and increase the effectiveness of each contact, resulting in higher rates of success.

Regulatory compliance is an afterthought for many vendors. With inContact, it is the core dialer principle. From the beginning, the inContact hosted predictive dialing has been designed to drive optimal performance in harmony with governmental regulations, including abandonment rate, ring-no-answer thresholds, and time-of-day dialing. Because of its purpose-built design there is no need for supervisors to micromanage or manipulate a campaign in search of better performance, providing an extra level of compliance protection.

With inContact you have the hosted predictive dialer software and you have incontact as a major long distance carrier offering SIP Trunking Outbound and Inbound Toll Free Service.

Call Center Customer Service

 

 

Do you think that customer service is getting worse?  You’re probably right…

The ACSI just release the 2010 results of their multi-year study on customer service and found that it is…dropping.  Yep.  So if you feel like customer service is going down, you’re probably right.

With a few exceptions, it is declining.

What can we do about it?  I really don’t believe that we are getting up in the morning and saying to ourselves in the mirror, “what can I do to offer worse customer service?”  I believe that those in the industry want to do a better job of offering customer service.

Some claim that it is all about the fragile economy and consumer sensitivity.  If that is the case, now is your chance to jump on it and beat out all of your competition in customer satisfaction.

Greater customer satisfaction leads to:

  1. Customers who buy more from you
  2. Customers who spread good word of mouth about you
  3. More profitable companies

So, things are looking bad across the board…now is your chance to really shine.  What are you doing to shine?  Share your ideas with us here or with me at

Why Use SIP Trunking?

 

 

Deploying SIP trunking can be a big step toward simplifying your organization’s telecommunications and preparing for the latest enhancements to real-time communications. One of the primary advantages of SIP trunking is that you can consolidate your organization’s connections to the PSTN at a central site, as opposed to legacy TDM trunking, which typically requires a separate trunk from each branch site.

SIP Trunking in Lync Server

The Microsoft Lync Server SIP trunking capabilities enable the following:

  • An enterprise user, whether inside or outside the corporate firewall, can make a local or long-distance call specified by an E.164-compliant number that is terminated on the PSTN as a service of the corresponding service provider.
  • Any PSTN subscriber can contact an enterprise user inside or outside the corporate firewall by dialing a Direct Inward Dialing (DID) number associated with that enterprise user.

 

Cost Savings

The cost savings associated with SIP trunking can be substantial:

  • Long distance calls typically cost much less through a SIP trunk.
  • You can cut manageability costs and reduce the complexity of deployment.
  • Basic rate interface (BRI) and primary rate interface (PRI) fees can be eliminated if you connect a SIP trunk directly to your ITSP at significantly lower cost. In legacy TDM trunking, service providers charge for calls by the minute. The cost of SIP trunking may be based on bandwidth usage, which you can buy in smaller, more economical increments. (The actual cost depends on the service model of the ITSP you choose.)

 

SIP Trunking vs. Hosting a PSTN Gateway or IP-PBX

Because SIP trunks connect directly to your service provider, you can eliminate your PSTN gateways and their management cost and complexity. Using a SIP trunk can lead to substantial cost savings through reduced maintenance and administration.

Expanded VoIP Services

Voice features are often the primary motivation for deploying SIP trunking, but voice support alone is just the first step. With SIP trunking, you can extend VoIP capabilities and enable Lync Server 2010 to deliver a richer set of services than you can get with previous technology. For example, the same SIP trunk that delivers your telephone service and other VoIP communications services may now provide the following:

  • Enhanced presence detection for devices that are not running Microsoft Lync Server 2010 can provide better integration with mobile phones, allowing you to see when a user is on a mobile phone call.
  • E9-1-1 emergency calling enables the authorities who answer 911 calls to determine the caller’s location from his or her telephone number.
  • GPS locations can be integrated with your Location Information Server to track mobile user location.

Inbound Outbound Call Center

What is Inbound and Outbound Call Center?

An outbound call center is one in which call center agents make outbound calls to customers on behalf of a business or client. Calls made from the center can include telemarketing, sales or fund-raising calls, as well as calls for contact list updating, surveys or verification services.

An inbound call center is one that exclusively or predominately handles inbound calls (calls initiated by the customer) rather than outbound calls. A call center may handle either only inbound or outbound calls or might deal with a combination of the two.
