power dialer

If you’re a Pipedrive user seeking to ramp up your outbound calling efforts, you’ve likely come across the term “power dialer.” However, the market is filled with solutions claiming to be power dialers when, in reality, they’re often predictive dialers in disguise. This can be misleading, especially for businesses that would benefit most from the control and precision of a true power dialer.

What is a Power Dialer?

Let’s clarify the definition: A power dialer is a tool that sequentially dials phone numbers from a list. After one call ends (or goes unanswered), the next is automatically dialed. This gives your sales agents complete focus on each conversation, maximizing their potential to connect and convert leads.

Predictive dialers, on the other hand, dial multiple numbers simultaneously based on algorithms predicting when an agent will be free. This can lead to dropped calls, delays, and a less personalized experience for the prospect.

The Pipedrive Power Dialer Landscape: A Closer Look

Let’s examine some popular Pipedrive-integrated dialers often labeled as “power dialers,” revealing their true nature and potential drawbacks:

  • Kixie PowerCall: Despite the name, Kixie PowerCall leans more towards predictive dialing. It can dial multiple numbers simultaneously, making it less ideal for focused, one-on-one conversations.
  • Aircall: While user-friendly, Aircall primarily functions as a cloud-based phone system, not a dedicated power dialer.
  • Phoneburner: Phoneburner’s focus is on speed and volume, making it more of a predictive dialer. This can be problematic when your list requires a personalized touch.
  • Dialfire: Dialfire is explicitly a predictive dialer, which might not be suitable for smaller lists or situations where building rapport is crucial.
  • CloudTalk: While offering some dialing features, CloudTalk is primarily a VoIP system, not a power dialer designed for maximizing agent efficiency on each call.

These tools have their merits, but if you’re looking for the targeted approach of a true power dialer within Pipedrive, they fall short.
