Dialer 24

What is a Store and Forward dialer?

A Store and Forward dialer is an automatic telephone dialer, which is programmed to make dialing faster, easier and more reliable. The dialer is programmed to recognize the kinds of calls where the dialer will need to add extra digits to the dialing string. Once programmed, the dialer first records the digits that are dialed, and then dials (forwards) the stored number along with any extra numbers which need to be added to route the call. The entire sequence is done very quickly. By automatically dialing an access number, a Store and Forward dialer makes using money-saving long distance through alternate carriers as convenient as dialing a ten-digit long distance number.
