Automatic Phone line checks

Good Afternoon  

I was wondering if anyone knew of a script, or software which is able to dial a series of phone lines each day and check they're working correct and then send out a report defining the results?

We dial a list of numbers each day, but don't have the resource available to continue doing. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

wow, been a long time since I needed that. I seem to remember we could set up some of the old Terminal Programs to do that, but I can't think of their names off the top of my head.
Most of what I see now is for Call Centers, but this might do what you want:

NCH Swift Sound - Express Dial Telephone Dialer
Axon is a virtual IP PBX for Windows designed to manage phone calls in a business or call center environment.

Sounds like  the concept you're looking for is a wardialer. There are some cloud-based software services that will do this.

e.g. a quick Google search turns up Callfire's outbound call center service http://www.callfire.com/products/cloud-call-center

there are also a number of different applications you can use. Some of that is going to depend on what you need for reporting and how you want to tie it into your existing phone system. PhoneSweep was pretty good.

There are even some open-source projects, you'd probably have to spend a little time on development to get them working with a VoIP service but it's also doable that way.
http://sourceforge.net/projects/skypediver/ or http://sourceforge.net/projects/iwar/ for example.

You need to look at an Asterisk build that you can put in your office or data center.  

There are many scripts available to do this type of thing depending on what you are looking for from the answering end of the call.  

You might start with pbxinaflash and Wards TeleYapper as a starting point ---

That's what it was called.   Thanks.
It was like an itch I couldn't scratch.     ; )
