Re: [WISPA] OT: Automated Call System

2006-03-07 Thread Brian Whigham

Bill,
Are you talking about an Auto Attendant that can provide precanned
messages for callers like a call center does?  For example, your
cellular providers's support center will make you key in various option
codes to talk to the correct department.  If that's what you're looking
for, use Asterisk PBX.  It's  an open-source PBX server.

I can help you set up a server, if needed.

Re: [WISPA] OT: Automated Call System

2006-03-07 Thread Bill Austin

Hi Brian,

I'm actually looking for something not quite as complex.  I need a 
system that I can enter a list of numbers (won't change often-mostly 
cell phones), and once a night have it call the list of numbers and play 
a message.


I can work with a pre-recorded message where I just call in and activate 
the sequence.  I would prefer to be able to call in each night and leave 
a new message, and then have it call each number and replay the message.


I'm sure asterisk would do this, but is probably overkill for my needs. 
 I'm looking for something simple to setup and administer, so that down 
the road I can turn it over to someone else to maintain the list.


I have an older PC and a voice-capable modem that I can use for this.  I 
can also give it a public IP so it can be administered from anywhere.


Thanks,
Bill

So you want something that calls out to a list of numbers right?   You can 
get the software that the new automated telemarketers are using.  I have 
seen it several times  but I do not remember where.  It basically  calls a 
list of numbers and plays a pre recorded message.

Bill,
Yeah, of course Asterisk can do that.  You could buy a turn-key system 
and have that be part of it's features.  You could use it for that solely.


I see that there are online services which are pay per use as well.  I 
just noticed http://www.notifyquick.com/howto/canned_call.asp


Here's a product that allows you to use your voicemodem for $300, or 
even free, if you don't mind a Voicent plug in a ddition to your message 
and have only 20 numbers.

Bill,

Not sure if you got my offlist email, but you can go to www.tavoca.com and 
look at their GroupCall product.  Does exactly what you need it to do.


Friend of mine runs this company and will do great for what you want.
