Do I have to use the OB Dialer?
You don't have to use the OB Dialer, you can have agent do manual calling like Skype or your own dialer solution. The benefit of using the OB Dialer is that it greatly increases agent productivity and all of your reports and account management will be centralized.

  • Time tracking reports (Included without OB dialer)
  • Screen shots (Included without OB Dialer)
  • Call metrics (WITH OB Dialer shows: # of calls, leads, staff ranking, etc)

You can make life easy by having everything in one place. Plus we provide training and instruction to agents on how to use OB dialer.

What if I don't want to use the OB Dialer?

You are only billed for the time that staff work. If you end the contract with an agent you can still use your balance to work with other staff members. You can start and end contracts with as many Outbounders as necessary and hire as many as you want.

Why The upfront deposit Unlike other online staffing sites that have less than stellar reputation with their contractors, we require an up front deposit to guarantee staff will get paid for hours worked. And we notify them as soon as your balance is negative. This is to ensure that you can always find the highest quality staff at Outbounders.com. Rest assured you can withdraw any unused funds from your account at any time, and if you have a dispute with agent you can request arbitration.

AFTER I SIGN UP - THEN WHAT? Congratulations on being a new Outbounder employer and creating opportunities for people around the world!
