Dialpad delivers disruption-free learning to thousands of students

Multiple universities, schools and other education-focused organizations deem Dialpad “best in class” for the transition to distance learning

SAN FRANCISCO — July 1, 2021 — Dialpad Inc., the industry leader in AI-powered communication and collaboration, kept thousands of students across multiple educational institutions connected and engaged during the transition to hybrid-remote learning brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Built on its innovative split-cloud architecture that enables a 100% uptime SLA, Dialpad helps students and teachers stay connected across any device, from anywhere in the world. As students moved out of the dorms and IT teams began working remotely, Dialpad made the switch seamless. Schools including Blue Cliff College, Azusa Pacific University, Los Angeles Pacific University, Queen of All Saints School and more leverage Dialpad to keep campuses connected, build secure foundations for their campus-wide digital strategies, and help students continue their education without disruption.

Dialpad for Education has been critical for institutions to facilitate lectures, meetings, calls and messages across multiple devices while ensuring security and privacy. For phone calls and SMS texts, educators must provide their personal phone number which can lead to work-related communications infringing on personal time. With Dialpad, educators receive a dedicated phone number with the ability to set office hours. “Dialpad allows me to maintain my privacy while staying connected to my students,” said Felicia K. Jones, Work Readiness Instructor at The Hope Program, an organization that provides adult education, industry certifications and job placement support.

"In adjusting to a 100% virtual learning environment, the need to stay connected with students and parents has become even more important for our faculty and staff. Dialpad allows our teachers to have a dedicated phone number just for this purpose, on their existing devices. This has made the transition to distance learning easier on everyone,” said the Vice Principal of Queen of All Saints School. “Dialpad quickly got our team up and running and communicating with our students and their families which provided much-needed stability during a rapidly changing time."

Other education-focused customers, including Education First and the Early Learning Coalition of Palm Beach County (ELCPBC), needed a cloud-based contact center solution to enable a mobile workforce and maintain student access to necessary resources. Because Dialpad can rapidly deploy its software in minutes, customers saw no downtime or loss of productivity during implementation. ELCPBC, an organization that ensures every child has access to quality preschool education, found the right mix of efficiency and security with Dialpad Contact Center. “When the pandemic hit, we were able to pick up and work remotely. With Dialpad, we can answer calls seamlessly and we've even expanded our call center hours,” said Luis Mena, Vice President of IT, ELCPBC. “We handled around 9,000 more minutes worth of calls the first week fully remote as we did the week prior.”

With Dialpad, education-focused customers have reliable and flexible technology that allows students, educators and university IT administrators to stay connected and focus on what's important.
