“Connect First Safe” Wins 2014 PACE Technovation Award

“Connect First Safe” Wins 2014 PACE Technovation Award(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Connect First Safe has won the 2014 PACE Technovation Award, which recognizes innovation in products and services within the telecommunications industry. Connect First received the award Friday at the PACE National Convention and Expo at the Westin Diplomat Hotel in Hollywood, Fla.

Connect First Safe was developed by a team of industry experts and lawyers in response to new Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) regulations, which greatly affect outbound dialing; restricting the use of auto-dialers and requiring express written consent for outbound telemarketing. Connect First Safe keeps outbound-dialing clients within the bounds of the law by removing the “capacity” for predictive/ preview dialing. Using new outbound server architecture that does not have access to predictive, preview, or power dialing, Connect First Safe enables agents to safely dial cell phone numbers via an Agent Click-To-Dial request, thus keeping them in line with the law. Thus far, Connect First Safe has had a 100% success rate.

“We are happy and thrilled to receive this recognition for our work,” said Connect First CEO Geoff Mina. “We are always looking for ways to take insanely good care of our customers, and we see this recognition as encouragement to continue to innovate in order to take the best possible care of each and every one of our customers.”
