TactiCall Dispatcher Training Software: Frequently Asked Questions
What is TactiCall?
- TactiCall is a software program that uses advanced voice engine technology and proprietary word-spotting expertise to train a dispatcher directly on his or her own computer. The trainings are set up in a “role play” manner, but rather than role playing with a supervisor or trainer, the computer takes the role of the caller. The program actually listens to how a dispatcher responds to the simulated calls and provides feedback on the dispatcher’s voice control, as well as familiarity with your agency’s protocols. In essence, TactiCall ensures that your dispatchers know what to say and how to say it.
How is TactiCall different from other training programs?
- TactiCall is a one of a kind, 100% customizable dispatcher training program that allows a training dispatcher to simulate real life calls on their computer.
Training managers can quickly create realistic training calls on any subject and deploy them within TactiCall.
Does one license cover only one dispatcher or trainee?
- No, you can use a single user license to train as many dispatchers as you would like, but only one at a time.
Multi-user licenses are available for agencies who would like to train more than one at a time.
