What is outbound call center software?

Outbound call center software is an app or platform that helps businesses—usually sales teams specifically—manage their outbound calling processes. It automates many of the tasks involved in making and managing outbound calls like local phone number management, call recording, CRM integrations, and more.

Dialpad: More than just an outbound call center solution

Video conferencing in desktop and mobile app single item card

Truly unified communications

With Dialpad, you can make phone calls, send SMS/MMS messages and have video meetings in the same app. On top of that, you can even handle all your omnichannel customer interactions, including social media messages and live chat, all in a single platform.

CRM integrations

Customer relationship management (CRM) platforms are indispensable for sales and support teams. Dialpad integrates with CRMs like Salesforce, HubSpot, and Zendesk—and other tools like Microsoft Teams—to streamline workflows and embed a CTI power dialer inside those tools (which means reps don’t have to switch between windows to make phone calls). Or, build your own workflows with the open API!

Help sellers hit every step in their calls

With Dialpad's Ai Playbooks, coaches and supervisors can track rep adherence to sales methodologies like BANT, SPICED, and SPIN more easily. Dialpad Ai can automatically suggest questions and phrases that they need to say during a call (for example, asking about budget or purchase timelines), understand whether the behavior was met, and check the task off the list (or notify managers if this isn't being done).

Single Item Card Voicemail Drop v2

Voicemail drop

For outbound call center reps who often make hundreds of calls in a day, having to leave a unique message for every unanswered call wastes valuable time that could be spent on an actual conversation with a prospect. With Dialpad’s voicemail drop automation, reps can easily drop a prerecorded message for each unanswered call that goes to voicemail by clicking a button.

Phone call on desktop mobile app Single Item Card v3

Local presence

People are more likely to answer a call from a number with an area code they recognize. For this reason, giving your reps the ability to make phone calls from local numbers (sometimes called a local presence feature or package) can increase connection rates for them and get them more at-bats with prospects.

Single item card call recordings v2

Call recording

Dialpad’s sales engagement platform has not only a call recording feature, but also real-time transcription functionality, since most people can read transcripts more quickly than listening to the actual audio. Perfect for both post-call analysis and training purposes.

The benefits of having a good piece of outbound call center software

A good piece of outbound calling software can provide your business with a number of important benefits. Here are a few.

1. It improves your sales process

One of the biggest benefits of having a cloud-based call center solution is that it can help your call center agents increase call volumes, pull up customer data more easily.

Not only does this help them close deals more quickly because of the increased agent productivity, it also empowers them to provide a better overall customer experience.

Compared with older on-premises outreach phone systems, cloud-based VoIP providers also give sales call center teams more flexibility, since they can take sales calls from anywhere, on any device—not just in an office at a computer.

2. It helps you scale up faster

Another benefit of using modern outbound call center software is that it can help your company scale up and expand internationally faster.

With Dialpad, for instance, you can purchase local or toll-free phone numbers in different regions and countries with just a few clicks from your online dashboard. Want to add more live agents to your sales team? You can buy more licenses from your dashboard too—and all at a much more cost-effective price than with on-premises telephony providers.

3. It makes your sales team better

A good outbound contact center solution doesn't just automate manual dialing to help your reps make more outbound calls. That's just table stakes.

To give your sellers that extra leg up, look into call center AI, which will give your reps real-time coaching—without managers having to sit in personally on every call—and provide managers with real-time insights about things like competitor mentions, pricing questions, objection handling, and more. Understand why you're winning (or losing) deals, what prospects are saying, and glean 360-degree insights from the conversations you're already having with prospects, every day. That's the power of a good outbound contact center solution.

FAQs about outbound call center software

How does outbound call center software work?

Outbound call center software typically works by allowing sales reps or agents to make outgoing calls to customers or potential customers on behalf of a company, kind of like a super-powered phone system.

This is in contrast to inbound call center software, which tends to prioritize functionality like call distribution, self-service options, customer callback, and chatbots. (Omnichannel or blended call center software will allow agents to handle both inbound and outbound communications.)
