SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Dialpad, the pure-cloud business communications provider, and a Recommended for G Suite Partner since 2015, today announced it will provide a business phone system with native G Suite integration for Gmail's ecosystem of enterprise Add-on applications. With the addition of the native integrations, users of both services will discover how easy it is to use Dialpad and Gmail together in their daily work activities.
With the recent addition of Add-ons, Google Cloud offers a new way to develop native enterprise workflows within Gmail. Once users download and install the Add-on from the G Suite Marketplace, Dialpad is immediately available for use within the browser and across Android mobile applications.
Once activated, the Dialpad Add-on enables users to message, call, view history or save a new contact from within Gmail. With the Gmail Add-on, Dialpad is able to identify and pull contact information from within the individual email message and check to see if there are any existing contacts. Should none exist, Dialpad suggests creating a new contact.
Dialpad was selected to be part of a select group of ISVs who were provided early access to Google's Developer Preview for Gmail Add-ons. Together with the Google Cloud team, Dialpad's developers built an Add-on that provides companies of all sizes a more tightly integrated business communications experience. Built on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Dialpad provides a uniquely native, integrated business communications solution with Google. And now, G Suite users can combine two universal forms of communication with email and phone combined into one native interface, freeing them from the constraints of legacy enterprise integration and interoperability.
Worldwide, Dialpad has helped more than 48,000 customers move their daily business communications to the cloud, avoiding the use of any on premise legacy PBX hardware, with 85 percent of the customers completely eliminating their desk phones. Dialpad's software-only platform is built on GCP and allows companies, from small storefronts to the largest enterprises to instantly launch, provision and scale their communications platform, often on the same day they sign up. This makes voice, video, messaging and meetings available on any device, anywhere, at any time, all within a single easy-to-use application. Dialpad also has native integrations with Salesforce, Zendesk, and LinkedIn.
"Being selected as an initial Gmail Add-ons provider is an amazing opportunity to help companies ditch their desk phones and move towards the dynamic ecosystem of cloud communications," said Craig Walker, CEO at Dialpad. "With this program, companies will no longer be trapped in their antiquated PBX communications systems and can begin to provide a cloud first, mobile solution for today's anywhere worker."
