I am new to Asterix and indeed to PBX platforms and VOIP.
We are experienced website developers building a Php/MySql (Unix hosted) website for a client that is a member based subscriber/supplier booking system. No problem here.
The client has come to me with an idea that he wants me to research in addition in terms of it’s level of complexity.
So - if anyone can give me a basic idea of the complexity of this it would be great:
Our MySql database will store (opt-in suppliers) user phone numbers.
Basically, upon a certain activity within our website we need to populate a series of concurrent outgoing phone messages (no more than 6 calls at one time) that asks each user a question and offers them a series of options.
The user will then reply via their number keypad upon which our system will process these answers and continue on it’s next action depending on the answers that it receives.
I’m really sorry I can’t be more descriptive but I have signed an NDA which makes it difficult to tell you good people any more.
So - can we do this with Asterisk?
Can it be hosted on the same server?
Will we need other applications with Asterisk to make it work?
Thank you anyone who can break this down to something that we can begin to plan/scope out.
