A client in USA wanted to empower Financially Focused Contact Centers to streamline outbound calling operations and enhance customer contact rates.
Dialer companies and call centers face several issues in their outbound calling operations like low customer contact rates, call blocking, inefficient usage of phone numbers, negative consumer experiences, and compliance woes. They needed a solution that would provide them with actionable insights into their dialing operations to make data-driven decisions and expedite the effectiveness of their calling operations.

Our team came across some developmental challenges as mentioned below:
- Create the logic for sequencing DIDs in order to assign equal priorities to the outbound calling operations of different dialler companies using the platform.
- When users entered a large volume of input data, it overwhelmed the system and the database couldn’t handle the high concurrent requests, causing it to become unresponsive.
- The device switched into idle mode after a call got over during calling operations.
How did we resolve these development challenges?
We added sequencing to the calling lists of different users categorizing their DIDs into three separate groups. We defined a sequencing logic that takes into account the range-wise numbers associated with each user’s DIDs and prioritizes ascending number sequences based on the users within each group. We created a new field or attribute for each DID to store the assigned sequence value. We implemented a queue management system to resolve the issue of high load. The system accepts users’ input data. But, instead of immediately processing the data, it stores the data in a queue. The input data is processed one by one in a sequential manner; only one data processing task is active at any given time. We implemented event-based calling to prevent interruptions when a call finishes. This mechanism triggers an event after a call is over preventing the device from becoming idle.
