Predictive Dialer Help

Predictive Dialer Setup

This guide only applies to our on-premise software. Our cloud solution already has the dialer ready for use.

We have help content both online and within the program. The following content is also covered in the Voicent Agent Dialer Setup Guide, which can be opened under the program's main Help menu.

The setup mainly involves:

Installing the Predictive Dialer on a Dialing Computer

Download Voicent software installer and follow on-screen instructions to install Voicent Communications software on a computer. We have downloading and installation guides available if necessary. This computer will make all the outbound calls.

Configuring the phone service

Voicent software can use several phone services: VOIP phone service (such as SkypeConnect, Vonage Softphone, Callcentric, any SIP trunk provider, etc); a PBX system with SIP extensions (such as Cisco, Avaya, Asterisk, etc); or a traditional analog phone service. To learn more about how to setup VOIP/SIP accounts within the Voicent Application, visit this article.

For testing purpose, it is easier to configure the software to use a VOIP service or a PBX's SIP extension. For more details, please see this testing guide. If you have enterprise edition, please take a look at Enterprise Edition Setup Guide also.

Find the Voicent Application icon on the Windows desktop. Click to open it and select Phone Call Setup Wizard from the program main menu. Follow the on screen instructions to complete the setup. For predictive dialing, you should choose Internet Phone Service or PBX's IP extensions during the Wizard setup.

Plug in a computer headset (includes earphone(s) and microphone) so you can use the computer to talk on the phone.

If you are going to use the software for a single user/agent, then that's it. Your setup is complete. To setup multiple agents, please click on the "next topic" link at the bottom of this page.
