Since you’re in sales, I’m sure you’ve heard the term “power dialer”. Right?

If you somehow haven’t, the definition of power dialer is an automatic dialing technology that powers through your list of sales prospects by dialing one number after the next.

There’s just one pesky little problem with that. When you use a literal power dialer, you’re running the risk of being non-compliant with the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA). Penalties for doing so can range from $500 to $1,500 per call.

What’s a sales rep to do that has a long list of calls to make? Read on to find out.

No Robots

The benefits touted of typical power dialing include software that goes through your list and rapidly dials each contact, listening for a pickup and dropping a pre-recorded message if it goes to voicemail. Each action is performed by the software—aka a robot.

That’s the problem.

Those pre-recorded messages are great, and are such a time-saver, but the use of pre-recorded messages is specifically frowned upon by the TCPA.

And yes, it’s so much easier to have the software select who to call next and dial each number. But with apologies to Styx, “No domo origato, Mr. Roboto” aka “No thank you very much, Mr. Roboto...” The TCPA requires human intervention to be taken for each and every action. A robot/software deciding who to call next and making those calls and then listening to see if there’s a person on the other end or a voicemail? That’s not human actions. That’s a robot.

Here at Koncert, we’re team no robot.
