Communication Evolution | Dialpad CEO Craig Walker Interview on CNBC Mad Money

Dialpad CEO Craig Walker hit screens everywhere this week in an interview with Jim Cramer on CNBC’s Mad Money.

 

Jim hit the nail on the head in his introduction when he said:

Why should a business shell out a fortune for some super expensive telco system when nearly all of their employees already have mobile devices that are way more sophisticated than any landline telephone?

Well said Jim.

This is exactly the message that Dialpad is spreading in our mission to revolutionize the way we communicate at work and help businesses everywhere kill the desk phone.

Craig puts it simply, saying,“If you’re moving your business to the cloud for email and everything else, your phone system should go with it.” Over 25,000 companies including Netflix, Uber, and Motorola Solutions have already eliminated desk phones in favor of empowering the anywhere worker in the cloud.

By embracing a cloud-first strategy, these enterprises have significantly reduced the IT resources associated with managing on-premise infrastructure. For Motorola Solutions, eliminating 100% of desk phones has resulted in over $1 million in cost savings in less than six months. 

But incredibly, many companies are still clinging to their legacy PBX systems and tying employees to desks—restricting productivity and even reducing happiness.

Craig goes on to dig deep into the ways Dialpad is driving positive change in workplaces, making workers’ lives easier and solving problems you didn’t even know you had! For example, one of the coolest features Dialpad offers is transcription of your voicemail messages, in 80 different languages no less! No more wasting time listening to long messages and potentially missing important notes.
