SoftBank, Dialpad to bring pure-cloud business communications to Japan

Dialpad and SoftBank Corp. has inked an exclusive alliance to bring Dialpad´s pure-cloud business communications solution to Japan, the company said.

SoftBank will offer Dialpad to its customers, enabling workers to junk their desk phones in favor of working from anywhere using any device. SoftBank, which is one of the largest G Suite resellers in the world, will be the exclusive provider of Dialpad for five years.

As a pure-cloud solution, Dialpad does not require any on-premises servers, storage or hardwired phones. This frees customers and their IT teams from the burden of administering and managing traditional infrastructures that cost, rather than contribute to, business growth.

Dialpad can also be deployed in minutes, enabling organizations of any size to immediately derive more value from their shift to the cloud by better connecting offices and anywhere workers. Through simply logging into the application interface, employees are immediately empowered to connect and collaborate in whatever format they prefer — voice, video, messaging or SMS — on any device, anywhere and at any time. In fact, approximately 85 percent of Dialpad users are completely free of their desk phones and have cut the cord on legacy technology.

SoftBank Corp., a subsidiary of SoftBank Group Corp. (TOKYO: 9984), provides mobile communication, fixed-line communication and Internet connection services to customers in Japan. Leveraging synergies with other companies in the SoftBank Group, SoftBank Corp. aims to transform lifestyles through ICT and expand into other business areas including IoT, robotics and energy.
