Dynamic Locator Program (DLP)
The Dynamic Locator Program (DLP) is an automated, geographically-based toll-free telephone information service which allows callers to find the nearest location of a particular resource. Callers can either speak or enter their zip code to activate the system, or they can enter the phone number from which they are calling. The DLP identifies the closest resource site using an advanced GIS mapping function and a user-defined radius.
The system administrator loads site locations and directions by sending text files and geographic coordinates to a secure web site. These text files are then converted to voice files using TFCC's innovative text-to-speech (TTS) technology.
What makes TFCC's Dynamic Locator Program so innovative is that it gives the administrator the ability to add or remove locations as needed, on the fly, via TFCC's secure web site. Changes propagate across the system immediately, so resources can be added or removed from the queue based on availability.
High-volume, high-speed automated communications are critical in responding to pandemic situations.
