What’s the difference between Dialpad and Mitel?

Dialpad and Mitel are both popular business communications platforms, each offering a wealth of features to improve inbound and outbound communications.

Mitel’s been around since way back—like since before the cloud was even a thing, back. This means their MiCloud app—technically cloud-based now—was built on top of old architecture, inherently making it more complicated than cloud-first platforms.

Dialpad, on the other hand, was born and raised in the cloud. This allows it to do neat things like minimize downtime and release new features every week—not quarterly like most other platforms.

I've worked with Avaya, Cisco, Mitel—nothing compares to Dialpad.

Here we’ll cover more of the key differences that set the two apart.

Truly unified communications that make life easier

How much time do your employees spend switching between your different apps? Using multiple systems to handle calls, messaging, video conferences, and so forth can get… confusing.

With Dialpad’s single app for calling, chat, contact center, and video conferencing, onboarding and setup are a lot easier. The business messaging platform automatically syncs across all devices, providing a single source of truth for all your business conversations.

Imagine: You had a quick call with a client on the desktop app and sent them a business text on your mobile app. Both conversations with that client will show up when you access Dialpad. This makes it easy to find where the conversation left off, regardless of what device you’re using.

🙌 Fun fact:

Even the least expensive Dialpad plan comes with unlimited video meetings, and Dialpad works on the desktop app, mobile app, and web browsers. This means you can start a conference call whenever you need to—no PIN or downloads required.

Be up and running in no time

Whether you’re replacing an existing business phone system or implementing a new solution, interruptions to business communications are likely. And the longer it takes to have a working business phone, the more a company risks losing money.

Dialpad makes deployment quick and simple. In fact, this business phone solution can be implemented and set up in a matter of days for most companies—or even a matter of minutes for some (like LeadSigma and EF). Need a virtual phone number? You can get one in minutes.

Plus, Dialpad’s deployments include several self-service options, empowering customers to speed up the setup process without waiting for support.

AI-powered transcriptions, insights, and more—all in real time

Dialpad Ai is built right into all its products and helps organizations drive sales, gain competitive insights, improve customer service, and get more out of the conversations they're having every day.

Transcriptions

Both Dialpad and Mitel have call recording, but only Dialpad has searchable call transcriptions.

When you can’t remember what a customer said and want to refer back, you shouldn’t have to listen to a 30-minute call or waste time trying to find the exact part of the call. With Dialpad, you can pull up the call transcript and search for keywords to locate the moment you’re looking for.

Dialpad Ai can also detect customer sentiment on calls based on the words they use, and pick out keywords and phrases so you can track them.

Post call summaries

After every call, Dialpad Ai immediately sends a post call summary that includes meeting notes, action items, and key moments from the call directly to your email inbox, so you can take action and stay organized. Goodbye, manual note-taking.

😎 Dialpad tip:

If you ever see other UCaaS and CCaaS products talk about AI... Our automatic speech recognition (ASR) and natural language processing (NLP) engine is proprietary. Meaning we built it ourselves, and it’s even more accurate than almost all competitors out there.

Although AI features are available with Mitel as well, they’re typically add-ons through strategic partnerships. These partnerships often come at an additional price and might mean a separate contract altogether.

Plays nice with all your favorite apps

When it comes to integrations, Dialpad’s the clear winner. Not only does it integrate with a lot more apps, but the apps it integrates with are also the ones you’re likely already using.

Dialpad integrates with Google Workspace and CRMs (like Salesforce and HubSpot), collaboration software (like Microsoft 365), customer service tools (like Zendesk), and more. So if your organization uses or is planning on using these tools, Dialpad can easily integrate with them to improve productivity across your team.

Best-in-class support

There’s a reason why Dialpad won the Stevie® Award for sales and customer service (ahem, among a few other awards).
