About Vanilla Soft

VanillaSoft is a cloud-based auto dialer sales management solution. The software is designed for telemarketing companies and home agents. It combines CRM, lead management, and telemarketing features. 

Contrary to other sales CRMs that mostly focus on the account management and administrative part of sales, VanillaSoft integrates email marketing, auto dialing, call recording, queue-based lead routing, VoIP, and SmartCaller ID, all of which allow agents to optimize their sales processes, improve productivity, and boost sales.

How It Works

To set up a VanillaSoft auto dialer, you need a desktop computer, the auto dialer software, modem, phone connection with Internet facility, headset, and microphone.

VanillaSoft can be used for cold calling, setting appointments, pursuing hot leads, handling multiple sales teams, and selling services and products by phone. 

You can enter the list of your contacts into the software and call them when required. Auto dialing and queue-based routing functions allow you to make even more calls.

As soon as you have finished speaking to a customer, the next number is dialed automatically, minimizing the time between two calls.

The dialer also has the ability to recognize between a machine and human voice.

In addition, the solution provides email templates that are predefined by management.

Sending automated emails helps cut down on time spent in replying to each client individually when you need to answer simple questions or queries.

You can also send automated email messages to your contacts to remind them of appointments with your company.
