Last week’s blog provided an introduction to predictive dialers, but no tool is worth learning about unless you know how it can benefit your business. Like many of the technologies we specialize in, predictive dialers have a wide range of advantages to offer!
Solving a Common Problem
Whether you’re working in real estate, banking and finance, or merchant services, many industries face the same conundrum: “how can I contact customers and leads efficiently when there can be so many barriers between me and the people I’m reaching out to?” Even for your most skilled agents, things can really slow to a crawl when they have to contend with automated voice response systems, busy signals, and anything else that isn’t a real person. With a good predictive dialing system, you can improve contact rates by as much as 400%, almost completely eliminating time lost to numerous obstacles your agents may encounter.
Benefiting Your Agents
A predictive dialing system doesn’t solely offer your business advantages in terms of profitability. It also makes life easier for your skilled team of agents! There are few things more disappointing than building an excellent staff only to see them confronted with inadequate tools. This is why a modernized, cloud-based predictive dialing infrastructure can really bring out the best possible performance in your team. When you are able to provide them with the steady, high-quality stream of calls they need — and you can efficiently track performance — the result is a more confident and productive call staff. This is key to making your business better on the whole!
As with any tool, it’s essential to take a look at approaches to predictive dialing technology that you should avoid. For instance, when it comes to systems that haven’t fully modernized to today’s standards, it’s all too common to see clunky, unresponsive user interfaces. They can often be highly unintuitive, poorly organizing the information your agents need and making it difficult to navigate. The purpose of predictive dialing is to optimize time and cost efficiency, and a poor system design is sure to defeat this purpose. A streamlined, responsive, and intelligently laid out solution makes all the difference!
