Enable Local Dial for users

Did you know that cold-calling prospects using a local number increases the chances of them attending the call? Research says that people are nearly four times more likely to answer calls from local numbers.


On Outplay, Local Dial enables you to dial prospects using local area codes automatically. 


Here’s how Local Dial works:

Suppose a prospect lives in the US and has a contact number belonging to that region. You’re making a call to that prospect from another country through the Outplay Dialer. When the Local Dial feature is enabled, Outplay detects the region of the prospect’s number, searches your number pool for a Local US number, and automatically assigns it to you. When the prospect receives your call, they see that you’re calling from their own region, increasing the chances of them attending your call. 


To enable Local Dial:

  • On Outplay, go to ProfileSettings.

  • Click Dialer.

NOTE: Outplay can only select numbers that are available in your Unassigned Numbers/ Pool for Local Dial.


TIP: You can enable or disable Local Dial for specific users in the Assign Phone Number section.
