- How are AI Dialers different from Agent Assisted Dialers?
|AI Dialers||Agent Assisted Dialer|
With Artificial Intelligence Technology, AI Dialers (AI Flow Dialer and AI Parallel Dialer) dials prospects on behalf of Sales Reps or Dialing Agents and transfers them to Sales Reps once connected. It minimizes manual intervention and performs tasks that typically require human intelligence.
Agent Assisted Dialer is a cloud-based power dialing software with Live Conversation Automation (LCA) technology. Here, Dialing Agents play a major role in connecting Sales Reps with prospects. Once the call is connected to the Prospect, the Dialing Agent will immediately transfer the call to the Sales Rep.
Artificial Intelligence identifies the nature of the voice in the call and takes the appropriate action, automatically.
Agent Assisted Dialer allows Dialing Agents to take over non-productive outbound calling activities (such as auto-dialing numbers in the list, conversing with receptionists and gate-keepers, and leaving voicemails) to increase the productivity of Sales Reps by connecting them only to valid prospects.
After the conversation, Sales Rep will hang up the call with an appropriate Call Disposition and resume the dialing session on demand.
- Differences between AIPD and AIFD.
- AI Parallel Dialer (AIPD) – Dials multiple calls at a time (in parallel) and transfers only the valid connections to Sales Rep (only if there is a trace of a human voice on the Call) without any delay. Maximum of four calls can be initiated at a time.
- AI Flow Dialer (AIFD) – Dials one call at a time and transfers only the valid connection to Sales Rep (only if there is a trace of a human voice on the Call). Alternatively, you can override the artificial intelligence by clicking the Take Call Control button.
- What is Take Call Control?
The Take Call Control button in the AI Flow Dialer allows you to override the artificial intelligence.
- If there is a trace of a human voice on the Call, AI Flow Dialer will transfer the call to the Sales Rep without any delay. Upon clicking the Take Call Control button, the Call Disposition window will pop up to disposition the call outcome.
- In the case of Voicemail, AI Flow Dialer will automatically send the selected VM and hang up the call with an appropriate Call Disposition. Alternatively, you can take control of the call by clicking the Take Call Control button, which will bring up the Call Disposition window to disposition the call outcome.
- In the case of IVR, AI Flow Dialer will automatically hang up the call with an appropriate Call Disposition. Alternatively, you can take control of the call by clicking the Take Call Control button, which will bring up the Call Disposition window to disposition the call outcome.
- Difference between Valid and Invalid connects.
- Valid Connects – AI considers any transfer to be a Valid Connects.

- What is 'Went to IVR'? How does it work?
Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technology allows users to select the appropriate service or recipient by responding to a pre-recorded computer operated telephone system using a telephone keypad or by using speech recognition.
AI Dialer automatically hangs up the call that go to IVR with the appropriate Call Disposition, and displays a status 'Went to IVR' status in the 'Call State' column of the My Session tab.

|The disposition 'Call Issue' and the 'Call Issue' tab in the Call Disposition window will only applicable for Agent Assisted Dialer (AAD). No other dialers will use this.|
- When the AI connects the call to the EA/Operator, which disposition should the user to select?

- What if the Prospect does not hear you?
If this happens on only one call, it could be an issue on the prospect's end. If this continues to happen on subsequent calls, choose the call outcome "Prospect hung" or another outcome of similar value. It has been advised to reset the Session by Logging off and then back in.
