What is a Smartphone Dialer?

A smartphone dialer is a tool that call centers use to help agents maximize productivity and efficiency when making outbound calls to customer smartphones. Dialer software allows agents to make phone calls over the Internet using VoIP, or Voice Over Internet Protocol. Instead of using a hard-wired phone network setup to make outbound calls, call centers usually opt for a VoIP platform that integrates with different kinds of dialers. Call center software providers generally offer smartphone dialers as part of their monthly-based subscription. Call center leadership often leverages the advanced technology that providers implement into their dialer platforms to mitigate risk. Federal regulations under the FDCPA or TCPA prohibit certain telemarketing activities, so many automatic dialers are designed to keep call centers compliant. These regulations can be even more stringent when it comes to calling customer cell phones.

Smartphone dialers allow agents to reach more people in a shorter timespan. This is especially useful for outbound sales teams. By using their choice of lead lists, sales agents can make many calls back to back. Smartphone dialers can be used in different modes to accommodate an agent’s goals. One dialer mode is progressive dialing, which means that after an agent disconnects from a call, the dialer automatically calls the next number on the list. Predictive dialing is a bit more advanced. This type of dialing system will analyze agent availability, call volume, and other factors to make several calls at once. When a customer answers, a live agent is connected. Smartphone dialers can also act as power dialers. Agents can initiate a phone call by clicking on a hyperlinked phone number in a customer’s account within a CRM.
