Outbound Dialers

What are Outbound Dialers?

That’s right – as the question implies, there are many different flavors of outbound dialers that are available. The only thing they have in common is that they automatically dial phone numbers. They broadly fall into the following categories.


  • Auto-Dialer
  • Progressive Dialer
  • Preview Dialer


Each of these outbound dialers are useful in different situations. Provided below are brief descriptions of each of these and when to best use them.


Remember that almost all forms of auto-dialers when not initiated by a real human have some legal restrictions on them in every country and state.



Auto Outbound Dialer (aka: Voice Broadcasting, RoboCallers, Outbound IVR)

These are systems that automatically initiate outbound calls. Outbound Dialers automatically call people play a message and hangup. More advanced systems may also include “interactive voice response” systems that will give the user options to select by pressing keys.


These systems are best used when doing customer service calls, surveys or anything that the person receiving the call would not mind receiving an automated call for. You would almost never use this system to do any lead generation or sales type calls.
