Newfies-Dialer version 1.5 has been released with new features including Survey Branching and Voice Recording.
Survey branching allows different questions to be asked based on the answer of the previous question. For example, asking the question. “Do you intend to vote in the next election, for yes, press 1, for no, press 2” Pressing 1 leads into questions asking which candidate they support, whereas pressing 2 could lead into a voice recording saying, “please leave a short explanation as to why you won’t be voting”. We have released a short video demonstrating the feature at http://www.newfies-dialer.org/video-survey-branching/
The Newfies-Dialer installation script has been updated to allow installation on CentOS 6.3 as well as Ubuntu 12.04 in addition to supporting CentOS 6.2 and Ubuntu 10.04. Newfies-Dialer has also benefited from a number of bug fixes and performance enhancements.
We have also released a commercial SMS broadcasting module giving Newfies-Dialer the capability to send SMS messages to cell phones. For more details please see *http://www.newfies-dialer.org/add-ons/sms-module-for-newfies-dialer/*
Newfies-Dialer is designed for telecoms companies that wish to provide telephone auto-dialling and SMS broadcasting facilities to their customers, as well as organisations and businesses that want to broadcast marketing, emergency and informational messages to their contacts.
Newfies-Dialer can easily be installed using our automated install scripts, or for commercial installations, training, deployment support and software development, please contact us.
