What are channels?
Channels are used to designate the number of simultaneous calls allowed on your account. While channel amount doesn't matter for small-scale campaigns, channel impact becomes more perceptible as the scale of your campaigns grows.
Why channels matter?
Channels have a perceptible impact on your campaigns duration. Indeed, the length of a campaign (CMPLength) is essentially a factor of three parameters.
- The number of people reached (NBprospects) - the number of entries in the address book used for the campaign
- The length of the campaign message (MSGlength) - how long each prospect listens to your message / interacts with your IVR menu.
- The number of channels (NBchannels) allocated to the campaign.
For instance, reaching 50 000 prospects with a 2-minutes long message and 10 channels would take close to a full week (~6.94 days). The same campaign with 200 channels would only last for 8 hours.
Channels are crucial when you need to ensure the timely delivery of a message to a large prospect base.
