Dialtel Inc., a provider of voice broadcasting services since 2004, recently signed multiple new agreements with carriers in order to power short duration dialer traffic.
As the 2012 presidential election looms, voice broadcasting service providers are increasingly getting nervous as there is already a high amount of network congestion and lower ASR's throughout the country. The upcoming elections are only going to add more stress to an already overtaxed network.
"Switch operators are actively identifying and blocking short duration traffic when it starts to affect their retail traffic," said Erik Scanlan, chief executive officer, Dialtel Inc, in a statement.
This has big implications for political voice broadcast campaigns due to the fact that typically these messages are extremely large in volume and short in duration, presenting a traffic profile even more intrusive to networks than standard voice broadcasting.
Politicians must select a voice broadcasting provider with a solid network infrastructure. More specifically, one that boasts multiple carrier redundancy so that failed calls can be retried on the same call attempt before returning a failure code. In addition, a predictive dialer such as the one powered by SpitFire will enable these dueling candidates to get their individual messages out the public in record speed.
As one political campaign expert said, predictive dialers let you reach your voters and ensure you aren’t "wasting your campaign dollars in areas that have little or zero voter turnout." Instead, politicians can use their time and money to sway undecided voters and encourage their supporters that now is the time to put down their chips, get off the couch, and vote for what they truly believe in.
