I am looking for someone to walk me through an inexpensive and effective voice broadcasting system.
I work in politics. We need to do robocalls to voters to get out the vote. All political calls are legal in US.
I would like to be able to deliver 3,000 to 10,000 recorded messages to voters/day.
Adding copper phone lines can be expensive. I would like to look into setting up autodialer software that works with a voip connection.
So far, I have found Voicent's Autodialer software. This software does everything I need and more but it is very expensive ($1600 to $3000 to handle 8 to 24 lines. This software could work with either telephone lines or voip.
I have looked into skype, callcentric, and ring central voip providers. Ring Central looks promising, but running 8 lines would cost $200/month. It looks like they can handle several channels (lines).
Skype won't work because they only allow 50 calls/line each day. Call Centric won't work because they charge 1.9 cents/call for autodialling.
I only need to make outbound calls. I already have the lists of phone numbers. The calls will deliver 30 second messages to voters.
Does anyone have any recommendations on how to set up inexpensive yet reliable voice broadcasting?
My current research is $1688 for Voicent's Autodialer 7.6.2 and buying 8 lines/channels with Ring Central for $200/month.
I would be willing to pay up to $1000 or so if I could get hardware/software to make my own voip server (so I wouldn't have to pay monthly fees), but I know nothing about this process.
Can anyone provide a less expensive, but very reliable solution?
