The is often confusion regarding the definitions of predictive dialer software and power or auto dialing systems. Power or auto dialing is unlike predictive dialers in the sense that the agents are on the line, listening to the power dialer make the telephone call and the agent is waiting for the recipient to pick up. A predictive dialer system is a system that dials a telephone number without the agent on the line listening to the system dial the number. A predictive dialer makes numerous calls simultaneously searching for the call that generates a connected call. Once the call is connected to a person, answering machine, auto call attendant, the predictive system knows if the call is picked up by a live person or not. Based on user defined business rules, the system connects the call to an available live agent; or leaves a pre-recorded message on the answering machine or hangs up the call. From this, it is easy to understand how predictive dialing systems are predominantly used by business who require high volume and efficient means of connectingtheir agents to the call recipient.
When considering deployment options for predictive dialing, there are many to choose. Companies with have high security issues related to data collected by the staff may want a system to be installed at the company locations. An alternative to onsite installation while maintaining high security is to build out a ‘private cloud’ offering. Private cloud means that the company’s system is built in a separate non-shared environment at a highly secured datacenter. Most cloud services use shared resource for servers, databases and software operating systems. In a ‘private cloud’, all of your data and software is isolated and not shared with other datacenter tenants. The only infrastructure shared with other tenants is the power, HVAC , firewall and internet bandwidth. A private cloud deployment typically offers the highest security level at an affordable price.
