Review of Telemarketing Auto-DialersI get inquiries once in a while about Telemarketing Auto-Dialers for delivery of automated telephone announcements, as well as equipment that will monitor the results of telemarketing personnel.
Telemarketing Auto-Dialers are systems that will call a series of phone numbers to deliver a pre-recorded message. These systems are useful for delivering recorded messages to a group of recipients for such things as event announcements or for emergency notification.
We wrote software called Contact Caller to do that back in the 1980's, but there are better solutions today.
Today's modern solution has been addressed by a number of vendors with good equipment that handles a large volume of outbound calls automatically. Systems that have the ability to let you change your announcement and control the date and time for the delivery of the messages to the recipient's phone numbers.
In an effort to guide you with your search, I have reviewed a few of these solutions below. We are not affiliates with these vendors. You can find their websites via the custom search at the bottom of this page.
