Automated Calling, also known as Robo calls, definitely has its share of negative attention. From survey’s during dinner time to “winning” a “free trip” and everything in between. Generally people frown upon automated calling – even business owners and marketing managers. However, there are lots of good reasons to use automated calling and here are a few of them:

When there is an emergency, whatever that may be, communication needs to be quick and concise. Automated calling can quickly distribute call messages to customers, employees, tenants and more.
2. Timely reminders:
We’re all busy and so it’s nice to receive reminders about important activities such as appointments and deadlines.
