Hosted predictive dialers reduce the amount of time that agents spend making calls to customers, using algorithms to match answered calls with agents to maximize efficiency. It predicts when agents will finish calls, dialing out another phone line while agents are still talking to customers and passing the call to an agent instantly after a customer picks up the phone. The systems allow agents to talk to at least two people in the same time it takes to manually dial and reach one person, increasing agent productivity anywhere from 150 percent to 400 percent.
