Predictive Dialer – How to Choose the Best Option?

Share this page:
There are 4 basic dialing modes used in most USA contact centers: Preview, Progressive, Power, and Predictive. Let’s talk about the differences between them.

Feel the difference!

In Preview mode the agent has time to preview the information about the customer before the call, which starts right after the agent selects the client’s number. This mode is essential if the case is complicated. Examples: debt collection, complex sales, etc. Progressive regime is similar to Preview, but with more features (thus the name!). It observes the agent status and determines the timing of the call attempt. If the agent is ready for calling, Progressive mode dials the customer!

The Power dialer initiates a new call after the previous call is finished and the agent is available to proceed. This system considers the priority, but it is not as intelligent as predictive dialers, which uses special algorithms to count the quantity of calls that can be accepted by ready-to-work agents. So, it is eager to “learn”, and predict the quantity of calls that must be made to keep them fully occupied.


How does it work?

Predictive Dialer enables your agent to communicate with 200 customers per shift. If you have 10 agents, they will reach 2000 people. If your call center shift consists of 50 agents, they can easily contact 10,000 clients, and so on. It is possible because predictive dialer dials out multiple clients. It filters out non-answered calls and routes the valid call to any available agent.


Reduce or maximize? Both!
