A dialer (Figure 1) is a tool for dialing phone numbers. Physical telephone devices and softphones both have dialers for starting phone calls. There are manual and automatic dialers. You can press the phone buttons manually, digit by digit to finally shape the phone number you wish to call. Or, if you have previously input some phone numbers to the memory of the phone (or computer), you only have to press one single button in order to place a call. In this case, dialing is automatic.

If there is a need for dialing more (even thousands) of phone numbers at the same time, or one after another, an autodialer is used in most cases. An autodialer is a smart computer program which is based on a database of phone numbers. It automatically dials a list of numbers. Then, if the call is established and there is a human response, you can choose to play a prerecorded message or you can get one of your operators to talk with the customer.
Autodialers can be equipped with various kinds of capabilities. E.g. a smart autodialer is an autodialer capable of personalizing messages and collecting touch tone or speech feedbacks. A speech engine is usually included for converting text to speech and recognizing speech over the phone. A semi-automatic dialer is a human controlled dialer. All actions, such as dialing, playing audio message, recording, are initiated by human, normally by the press of a key. An enterprise grade dialer is an autodialer providing two key features. First, it is capable of making large number of simultaneous phone calls, second, it provides an application programming interface (API) for system integration.
