Dialpad partners with Intercom to provide AI-powered calling to more sales and support agents

New Dialpad integration with Intercom brings together the power of voice and chat

SAN FRANCISCO — May 18, 2021— Dialpad Inc., the industry leader in AI-powered communication and collaboration, today announced it has joined the Intercom App Partner Program to bring sales and support teams a seamless experience across voice and messaging. This new integration allows Intercom users to easily switch between Dialpad’s AI-powered calling and Intercom’s best-in-class business messenger during interactions with customers. Together with Intercom, Dialpad continues to help agents get the most out of every conversation and be productive from anywhere, on any device.

The Dialpad and Intercom integration enables users to easily switch between messaging and voice by allowing agents to call customers from an Intercom chat, and log that interaction in both Intercom and Dialpad. The app uses Intercom’s private chat log, visible only to Intercom users, to log Dialpad’s proprietary Voice Intelligence (Vi™) link and recording. With Dialpad’s new app built for Intercom, support teams can reduce resolution times and increase customer satisfaction. By launching phone calls from Intercom's messenger, the integration also empowers sales teams to close high-intent deals faster.

“This is a unique partnership. Dialpad and Intercom are not just technology partners, but also each others’ customers. We know firsthand how powerful each platform is, making today’s launch really exciting,” said Brian Peterson, co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Dialpad. “Both Dialpad and Intercom are committed to empowering sales and support teams to be more productive. Through this partnership, Intercom users have direct, seamless access to Dialpad’s powerful voice technology and reliable business phone services within Intercom's business messenger.”

Dialpad is a cloud communication platform that delivers high-quality calling, video and chat from a single application. Powerful Voice Intelligence (Vi™) technology is embedded in every interaction, enabling business users to get more value from their calls and meetings. With live transcription, real-time recommendations and call sentiment, Vi turns any agent into a super agent.

"This integration allows our live chat team to better solve problems right in the moment via channel switching in a single app. This will enhance our customer experience as well as cut down resolution time,” said Victoria Deubler, Director of Customer Support, Inside Real Estate. "Now, both our phone and live chat teams can utilize this integration to work out of Intercom directly instead of jumping back and forth between apps throughout the day which saves time and improves team efficiency."

Intercom’s Messenger enables personal, conversational experiences between businesses and customers, and its accompanying management tools and automation provide personalized customer interactions that are efficiently managed across channels. Intercom is powered by a connected customer data platform that seamlessly integrates with CRMs and many other tools, including Salesforce, Marketo and Zendesk.
