An automated phone tree, also known as an automated call tree or voice tree, is a communication system that automatically contacts a list of individuals in a predetermined sequence by phone. It is typically used to deliver important messages or gather responses during emergency situations or critical events. The phone tree starts with an initiator who triggers the process, and then the system dials each contact on the list, playing a pre-recorded message or allowing recipients to respond via touch-tone or voice commands. By automating the calling process, organizations can ensure prompt and efficient communication with their employees, customers, or stakeholders. PushPulse offers an automated phone tree feature that simplifies the communication process and facilitates effective outreach during emergencies.
