Auto dialers are also known as phone dialers, dialers software, or voice dialers. Read on to learn the differences and why OnSolve is better.
Auto Dialer Software and Voice Dialers
An auto dialer is an electronic device or service that automatically dials phone numbers. OnSolve provides an auto dialer service that is web-based and requires no hardware or software. This sets us apart from many auto dialers that require a hardware dialer be installed on-site.
The OnSolve service accepts a list of phone numbers entered manually, from a spreadsheet or through an integration with a database. If the call is answered, the OnSolve auto dialer service delivers the recorded message. Our auto dialer service also allows users to conduct automated surveys, request keypad responses, and gives call recipients the ability to connect to a live person with a tap of their keypad.
Who uses an auto dialer service?
Auto dialers provide solutions for many types of organizations that have the need to provide one-to-many, or broadcast communication. Our service is commonly used for employee communication and announcements, event notifications and reminders, emergency alerts and instructions, and appointment and other types of messages and reminders for customers. Any time an organization is spending staff time on outbound calling, it’s time to consider an auto dialer service like OnSolve.
Why use a service for mass phone dialing?
OnSolve’s auto dialing service provides significant time and resource savings for organizations that need to reach multiple contacts quickly and efficiently. Setup is quick – requiring only that a message be created and contacts to be entered into the system. Messages can be created by recording a voice on the phone through our system, or by typing the message. They can then be saved for later use. We broadcast the message to the list of contacts simultaneously via voice, email or text message, and provides reporting of who received the message and how it was delivered (live or voicemail).
Automated Phone Call System
Automated calling services save time and money. Place hundreds or even thousands of automated calls at once to your group.
What is an Automated Phone Call System?
Automated calling services save time and money and allow you to place hundreds or even thousands of automated calls at once to a group or organization. An automated phone system is any telephone system that interacts with callers without input from a human other than the recipient. OnSolve provides a phone system with automated dialing that places auto calls. The difference between OnSolve and traditional automated phone systems is that we use a technology application, instead of hardware, to make the calls. With our phone system, there is no hardware or software to install. Our call system accepts bulk imports of telephone numbers from a spreadsheet, database, or contact management system. The system plays a pre-recorded message when it detects a human on the line. If the call reaches a machine or voicemail system, it can deliver an alternate message. The only restrictions are that you can’t use OnSolve for political calls, telemarketing services, or soliciting.
Benefits of an Automated Phone System
Auto dialing phone systems use software and a modem to let a computer automatically dial a list of phone numbers. An Automated Calling Service makes sense in situations where many outbound calls, texts or emails are necessary, and speed and accuracy are important. When considering switching from traditional phone methods to an automated call system is clear. The time you save could be a lifesaver when an emergency strikes and seconds matter.
What are Automated Messaging Systems?
More and more people are communicating through text messages. Automated texting combines the popularity of text messaging with the automated convenience of an auto dialer system. While you could download and configure an automated text messaging system of your own, using this ready-made system is much more convenient.
Automated Text Messaging
An automated text messaging system allows you and your organization to easily communicate with groups of recipients.
Benefits of Automated Text Messaging
People are very busy. They juggle many commitments and responsibilities. Relying on mail or email is outdated. The average email user receives 88 emails per day. Yours can easily be lost in the pile. Using an automated text messaging system can ensure your message is seen and read in a timely manner. Consider some statistics:
- Texts have 99% open rate versus a 25% email open rate.95% of texts will be read within 3 minutes of being sent.78% of US consumers say receiving a text is the fastest way to reach them for important service.91% of users who opted-in to receive texts from a brand rate those messages as “somewhat” to “very” useful.
It’s Time to Automate Your Call Tree
Is your organization still using a manual phone tree? Automate your group calling tree and send messages to tens, hundreds, or even thousands of contacts simultaneously, with our group notification solution.
What is a Calling Tree?
A calling tree, or phone tree, is defined as a pyramid-shaped method of communication which is started by one person and is continued as each contact receives the message and relays it to another group member.
Once upon a time, when pay phones donned every city block and viewers adjusted rabbit ears to tune the television set, the manual call tree was developed to communicate information to large groups. When information needed to be shared, one person called several others and in turn, those recipients dialed a few more, and so on. Even though the phone tree method was far from perfect, team players tirelessly dialed and relayed messages, hoping that most of the team, congregation or organization would eventually get the message (and that somehow it would be accurate).
The phone tree or call tree is still in use today, even for important or time sensitive messages. Unfortunately, it is prone to errors and long delays. Sender liability can be a real concern when critical information isn’t delivered quickly and accurately.
Emergency Notification Service
What is an Emergency Notification Service?
An emergency notification service is a system in which people can receive instant information during an emergency or times of crisis. It allows for mass messaging via phone, SMS text, and email simultaneously—or by a preferred platform per message.

With our emergency broadcast systems, you can alert tens, hundreds, or even thousands of contacts at once from any phone with important emergency notifications and instructions.

Accommodating a variety messaging preferences and quickly sending tens, hundreds, or thousands of text alerts can be a challenge.
