What’s the difference between Dialpad and Aircall?

Dialpad and Aircall both offer phone system and cloud-based contact center functionality, including analytics, the ability to easily scale to add new users, and integrations with top CRM platforms. Yet there are just as many differences as there are similarities that you’ll need to consider before purchasing.

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

Truly unified communications

Dialpad offers a unified communications platform that combines voice, video, and SMS/MMS and team messaging along with a Contact Center as a Service (CCaaS) solution. This brings high-quality communications features to the contact center, complete with all the ease of use and features of a unified communication solution.

Dialpad is designed for both internal communications and contact center communications, enabling employees to seamlessly handle both on a single platform. No window or tab switching needed.

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

With built-in Dialpad Ai, you get real-time voice transcriptions, analysis, insights, and even sales coaching in every call.

During the call, Dialpad Ai provides live coaching including tips for contact center agents and information related to the caller’s questions. Contact center managers can set up Real-Time Assist cards to pop up automatically on agents’ screens when certain keywords are spoken and ensure agents have the information they need, when they need it.

It can also detect customer sentiment on calls based on the words they use, and pick out keywords and phrases so you can track them. For example, if your customers are bringing up a competitor’s name or asking a lot of tricky questions about pricing, you’ll know:

Immediately after the call, Dialpad Ai sends you the transcription and highlights of the action items and key moments (goodbye, manual note-taking) in a call summary to your email inbox, empowering businesses and employees to be more productive, focused, and organized with every call.

Oh, and 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 one of the most accurate out there in terms of transcriptions.

The single pane of glass experience

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.

A single, unified interface that encompasses all your internal team and external contact center’s communications can improve productivity and eliminate sources of confusion. All while reducing costs that would otherwise go towards multiple systems. Wins all around.

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).
