Forum Research has an advanced Predictive Dialer imbedded within national operation center (NOC) to facilitate an effective and efficient outbound calling campaign for our customers. Our software driven dialer can perform outbound tasks in multiple configurations with multi-tenancy which allows for separate and secure reporting exclusivity. Our software can operate in Preview and Power dialing as well as Predictive to facilitate a high penetration rate and effective script program.
Interactive Voice Response (IVR)
Our NOC supports an integrated IVR that can work for both inbound automated calls or outbound surveys or notifications. Our IVR supports advanced software based answer detection, which can filter out common false positives such as fax, answering machine, busy and network intercept. We also have the ability to filter and test our list prior to launch for a high penetration rate. Our systems also have the ability to perform right party procedures upon a positive connect.
Forum Research has an industry leading software program running which enables our CallCenter agents to go through a knowledge base program for conducting extensive and strategically important survey programs for our customers. The data input gathered during these interviews is then housed in a SQL database that can be immediately analyzed by our in house statistical research team. Each Knowledge base interview campaign is programmed by a certified software specialist and then placed in our quality and assurance process prior to being released to the CallCenter.
