Outbound Call Types

Definition

What are outbound call types?

Outbound contact center systems include operators initiating and making calls to customers on behalf of their clients. These outbound call forms assist businesses in obtaining a full understanding of the reception of their goods and services in the market, which aids in the administration of online images through efforts of digital marketing.

Outbound calls are made for telemarketing, surveys, and verification for goods and services provided by customers, using manual operations of executives as well as technical applications of AI-based facilities such as chatbot and predictive dialer. It is one of the most essential services that most BPO outsourcing firms have.
