Dialers

A dialer is a computerized system that automatically dials batches of telephone numbers for connection to agents in a call center. The dialer, or autodialer, removes the need for each agent to manually dial a number. A predictive dialer goes a step further and dials numbers based on the availability of a pool of agents in a center and the likelihood of a called party answering. ARM companies make heavy use of dialer technology for more efficient calling operations. Most dialers in an ARM setting are integrated with collection software and other collection technologies.
