11 Ways Technology Improves Outbound Telemarketing Services Experience
What is an outbound call center?
An outbound call center is a function that makes outgoing calls to:
- Other businesses
It originates with a sales or support representative dialing a third party’s telephone number.
Must haves for an outgoing call center
Natural Language Processing (NLU) assistance
NLU is a technology that ‘listens’ to voice input. It determines the intent of the speaker. Furthermore, it is typically deployed within an IVR system. Thus, its next move could be confirming those booking details. NLU can also have uses outside the IVR context:
- Training agents in better processes/approaches
- Highlighting upselling / cross-selling opportunities
- Automating data entry
Automated scheduling and dialing
Outbound call centers have been using sales dialers for years. In addition to dialing, compiling call lists is also a must. So, if you’re going to automate a process, automate every part you can.
Here’s how Magellan Solutions does it:
- Integrate your dialer with surrounding systems. It could be your call center CRM and cloud Helpdesk software.
- Create a simple automated process. This flags the leads or customers you need to call. Those flags are on your call list.
Adaptable CLI / Caller ID
Before considering having successful transactions, think of the customers first. When you call, they will see the number that is calling them. You can think of this as the first impression you’re making. The best way to make it good is to display a local, recognizable number. This is called adaptable CLI or caller ID. It allows your call center to choose the number displayed when you make calls.
