Dialpad has released Dialpad Free, which gives small businesses free business phone systems.
Dialpad Free is available for businesses with five or fewer employees. Subscribers receive one office phone number, and up to five employees can be reached either by name or as extensions. Subscribers can sign up and download the Dialpad app onto their computer or mobile device, and it works on Mac, Windows, iOS, and Android devices, as well as a native app for Google Chromebooks and an extension for the Chrome browser.
The Dialpad Free service offers a number of features, including voicemail, HD calling, call recording, call logs and analytics and internal call transfers. It offers unlimited inbound minutes, and 100 outbound minutes per month, as well as 100 SMS messages (which includes both inbound and outbound messages, and can be sent to and from the company’s main office number). Users can connect an unlimited number of IP-enabled devices, and its two-way address book syncs with Google contacts.
Video calling is also available between Dialpad users, and all businesses will receive five free UberConference accounts, allowing them to call through their PC’s web browser via WebRTC. It also provides a Google G Suite sidebar, which acts as a virtual assistant to show upcoming events and provide context for calls such as relevant emails and Google Docs.
