How Does a Predictive Dialer Work?
Progressive Dialer Factors in the Data in Real-Time
The Progressive Dialer employs an advanced algorithm that initiates dialing by considering the available number of agents as its initial parameter. As the dialing process unfolds, it dynamically adjusts the number of active lines based on real-time data. This adaptive strategy, informed by metrics such as answer rate, contact rate, abandon rate, and agent availability, ensures a responsive and optimized approach to outbound calling, enhancing efficiency and connection rates.
The Answer Rate is a crucial metric that measures the percentage of calls answered by the recipients. The Progressive Dialer constantly monitors this rate during its operation. If it observes a higher answer rate, it may increase the number of concurrent calls to capitalize on the likelihood of successful connections. On the other hand, if the answer rate is lower, the dialer may reduce the number of lines it is simultaneously dialing to prevent unnecessary idle time for agents.
Contact Rate is another pivotal factor that the Progressive Dialer takes into account. It gauges the percentage of calls that result in successful contact with the intended recipient. The dialer intelligently adjusts its dialing pace based on fluctuations in the contact rate. A higher contact rate may prompt the system to accelerate the dialing process to maximize engagement, while a lower contact rate could lead to a more conservative approach with a slower dialing pace.
Abandon Rate refers to the percentage of calls that are abandoned or disconnected before reaching an agent or voicemail. The Progressive Dialer actively monitors this metric to fine-tune its strategy. A spike in abandon rates might trigger the dialer to optimize its dialing parameters, ensuring that the pace aligns with the capacity of available agents. This dynamic adjustment helps minimize abandoned calls and enhances overall campaign effectiveness.
Number of Available Agents
The Progressive Dialer is acutely aware of the workforce it has at its disposal. The number of available agents directly influences the dialer’s decision on how many lines to activate simultaneously. If there are more agents ready to handle calls, the dialer may increase the call volume to keep agents occupied efficiently. Conversely, if the agent pool is limited, the dialer may adjust its strategy to avoid overwhelming the available workforce, maintaining a balanced approach to optimize productivity.
