Database Systems Corp. (DSC) is a leading provider of call center products and outsourcing services including voice broadcasting.
What Is Voice Broadcasting?
Voice broadcasting (also referred to as phone broadcast or message broadcast) is a mass communication technique that sends a pre-recorded phone message to hundreds or even thousands of call recipients in a very short period of time. This technology can be used in business applications and for community alerts and notifications.
Business announcements and advertisements can be sent to prospects and commercial clients.
Emergency voice broadcast alerts can be delivered to members of the community with warnings of a natural disaster or emergency situation.
Messages can be delivered to both individuals and answering machines. If our phone system detects a no answer condition or busy signal, the message can be scheduled for delivery at a later time. Complete online reports are available to view the effective delivery of messages in this fashion.
Voice broadcasting can be used for many specific programs such as senior call reassurance and reminder applications.

Programmers can use this library to create voice broadcast campaigns on LINUX, Unix or Windows servers that control the voice broadcasting phone system. This "Open" approach to voice broadcast development provides maximum flexibility when creating phone applications.

Voice Broadcast System Documentation
The following are several voice broadcasting user guides. The first documents the installation and management of the DSC voice broadcast systems. The second manual is a user guide that presents information about the operation and management of a DSC voice broadcasting system.
Voice Broadcast Regulations
While delivering automatic phone messages to call recipients, DSC can automatically enter the called individual's phone number into a Do Not Call (DNC) phone list if your message has a "Press Through" feature. For example, your message can introduce your organization and product or service.
For commercial voice broadcasts, you MUST give an option that allows the individual to be removed from your call lists at the beginning of the recorded message. If the call recipient presses the appropriate number on the phone keypad, our software can automatically enter this phone number into a DNC file and terminate the call.
The following are just a few of the FTC regulations that govern the broadcasting of automated phone messages to individuals. Although most of these guidelines apply to commercial broadcasting, it is important to follow all of the rules dictated by the FTC (See Telemarketing Sales Rule).'
Because new FTC requirements mandate that outbound calling companies give call recipients the ability to opt out of a calling campaign, this technology is more important than ever. The advantage to your organization is that now this process can be fully automated using our Opt Out IVR system. Your call campaigns can be programmed to give the call recipient the option to "Press x...." to be removed from your call lists.
- Prior Written Consent. (The amendments) expressly prohibit telemarketing sales calls that deliver prerecorded messages, whether answered in person by a consumer or by an answering machine or voicemail service, unless the seller has previously obtained the recipient's signed, written agreement to receive such calls.
- Opt Out Option In Phone Message. (The amendments) require that, by December 1, 2008, sellers and telemarketers provide, at the outset of all prerecorded messages, an automated keypress or voice-activated interactive opt-out mechanism so that consumers can opt out as easily as they can from a live telemarketing call.
- Answer Machine Message Containing Toll Free Opt Out Number. In cases where the call is answered by an answering machine or voicemail, (the caller must) provide a toll-free number that allows the person called to be connected to an automated interactive voice and/or keypress-activated opt-out mechanism anytime after the message is received.
For more information about this program, visit our Opt Out webpage.
