Autodialing program triggered by a GPS geofence - Any ideas?

I'm trying to tie in a GPS trigger from a geofence to an autodialing program with no interaction required from the user. The call would be routed to an IVR program and provide the needed prompts that are a constant and don't change. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. GPS platform has the ability to send SMS and email upon geofence activation as a potential triggering event. I'm a novice but very eager to learn...Thanks in advance for you consideration!

You might want to take a look at zapier.com if you have not already.  It has some hooks into RingCentral and maybe you don't need RingCentral at all to accomplish this.  Is this GPS running on mobile phones or some stand alone system?  Either way I think zapier can take an SMS trigger and then do things with RingCentral or thousands of other actions.  Good luck.

Thanks Brandon; I'll totally check that out...  It is a stand alone system hard wired into the vehicle.

Thanks again for the tip!

Sure.  Also, IFTTT is similar to Zapier with triggers and actions.

I tried IFTTT  first but was unable to find anything that was a fit there.. Just reached out to the folks at zapier..  Fingers crossed.. Thanks again!
