Early Holiday Offer Provides Free Phone Service for Up To Five Workers

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. /California Newswire/ — Dialpad, the pure-cloud business communications provider whose mission is to “Kill the Desk Phone” across corporate America, is now giving Bay Area small businesses an early holiday gift as it sets out to “Kill the Phone Bill.” Starting today, Dialpad is offering a completely free version of its award winning service by expanding the company’s efforts to disrupt the small business telephone market with the release of Dialpad Free™.

The new Dialpad Free service eliminates the monthly phone bill for the small businesses with up to five employees in area codes 415, 510, 650, 408, 925, 669, 628 and 707. SOHO workers and small businesses can immediately take advantage of Dialpad Free by selecting a new phone number or porting over and using their existing phone number. The service will become available outside of the Bay Area starting later this year and will continue to expand to other markets around the US in 2018 based upon the feedback from subscribers in the Bay Area to improve and fine-tune the Dialpad Free service.

“What we did for individuals with GrandCentral and Google Voice is what we’re doing for the small business with Dialpad Free,” said Dialpad co-founder and CEO Craig Walker, who previously co-founded Grand Central which was acquired by Google in 2007 and was renamed Google Voice. “Too many small businesses are massively overpaying for telephone services. That stops today with the launch of Dialpad Free.”

“Dialpad Free effectively kills the phone bill,” said Walker. “We’re giving businesses the ability to have the same powerful, professional business phone system that serves large enterprises like Motorola, Uber, and WeWork, entirely for free, to power their operations and continue the Anywhere Worker revolution. Small businesses are the backbone of the American economy and have the greatest need to save money. Dialpad Free helps them do that, and just in time for the holidays.”

Dialpad Free is a subset of the company’s award-winning business phone service, providing businesses with one free main office phone number and up to five extensions, all powered with an automated call attendant, call recording, call transfer and other powerful business class phone features. The Free package also includes unlimited inbound and up to 100 minutes of outbound calling, 100 inbound and outbound SMS messages that can be sent and received using the company’s main office number along with voicemail, call recording, call logs, internal call transfer, call analytics and integrated conference calling with Dialpad’s UberConference™.

Companies also receive free chat between their staff, basic analytics, the ability to connect an unlimited number of IP-enabled devices, including supported IP desk phones, self-service sign-in using Google’s G Suite account credentials, video calling between Dialpad Free users, and an easy to use collaboration suite featuring audio conferencing, screen and file sharing via Dialpad’s UberConference platform.

“We understand Free very well, as UberConference already has more than 1.5 million customers. Many started out using our no-cost version, before migrating to our paid services,” added Walker. “For many small businesses, Dialpad Free is all they need, as they’ll save anywhere from $15 a month to over $50, depending on which phone provider they leave, for more features, a better service and no more phone bills.”

With apps available for laptops, desktops, mobile phones, and tablets, any Dialpad app-enabled device immediately becomes a Dialpad Free extension that’s reachable from the business’ main number, and can be in use within minutes. After signing up for the service, all a subscriber needs to do is download the Dialpad app onto their desktop, laptop, tablet or smartphone. To further help small businesses free themselves of their current phone service charges, for a limited time there is no charge to transfer an existing business phone number to Dialpad. A fee of $3.00 will apply for porting a number out.

Dialpad offers free applications for Macs, Windows, iOS and Android, as well as an app for Google Chromebooks, and an extension for the Chrome Browser. Dialpad then uses the computer or mobile device’s broadband internet connection to place and receive voice and video calls, send texts or perform any of the other functions offered by Dialpad Free. Dialpad Free also offers 2-way directory syncing with G Suite to keep address books up to date. Conference calling is just as easy with Dialpad’s UberConference. Participants can either call in via their PC’s web browser using WebRTC, taking advantage of their already built in speakers and microphone, can call in from the Dialpad app or dial in using their designated UberConference phone number.

“Businesses today are paying for services they rarely use and don’t need,” said Walker. “With Dialpad Free, many of the businesses across the Bay Area can pretty much stop paying for phone service and immediately start using the Dialpad Free service, complete with features they previously paid for, and have everything they need except the bill.”
