The #1 Most Popular Predictive Dialer Service
1) PhoneBurner Power Dialer – power dialer, automation, & lead distribution.
Predictive dialing has been around for a few decades now and has changed the game for telemarketing companies. As opposed to automatic dialing, predictive dialing is intelligent and can assess when an agent might be wrapping up with a call and will be ready for the next one. Using its own algorithms and calculations, the predictive dialer discerns how long an agent takes on an average call and dials numbers accordingly so as not to waste any time. It increases the efficiency of agents and reduces downtime. If an agent had to dial a number manually they would take 30 seconds extra which doesn’t sound like a lot but adds up to a large number by the end of the month or even the day.
Predictive dialers are also different from automatic dialers because they can dial multiple numbers at the same time. But their revolutionary qualities aside, how affordable are predictive dialers? An average predictive dialer service is charged according to a monthly, per-agent fee. The basic ones can start at $50 and those with higher features can go up to $200 per agent. Let’s look at five of the best cheap predictive dialer services:

If the number of agents goes up to 13 to 24, the solution costs £89 per seat. Similarly, if the number of seats is over 100, the solution costs £49 per seat.
