Automated Message Calling:
Each number is dialed and a recorded message is played. SEIU provides the recording service for you. This message is heard by the call recipient or recorded by an answering machine. Automated message calling may not be used to contact numbers assigned to emergency telephone lines, guest or patient rooms at hospitals or health care facilities, wireless phone service (including both voice calls and text messages), or any numbers for which the person being called would be charged for the call. Automated messages must be at least 25 seconds long. Robo surveys and patch-through calls can also be performed.
At least 24-hour notice is required for automated message campaigns.
Live Calling or Computer Rental:
Volunteers or paid callers (provided by your organization) engage in live, scripted calls and record responses to scripted questions. At least 6 and no more than 18 stations in Milwaukee, and at least 6 and no more than 8 stations in Madison may be reserved at one time. At this time, only one call center can be rented at one time. The organization is responsible for having an onsite supervisor present at all times volunteers are at the call center. SEIU will provide on-site technical support and training during live call campaigns. Automated voice mails can be left on answering machines for the automated message rates. A patch-through option is also available.
At least 7 days’ notice is required for live call campaigns.
