SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dialpad, Inc., the industry-leading Ai-Powered Customer Intelligence Platform, today announced that it has ranked #25 on the Forbes 2023 Cloud 100, the definitive ranking of the top 100 private cloud companies in the world, published by Forbes in partnership with Bessemer Venture Partners and Salesforce Ventures.
Dialpad's proprietary AI infrastructure was developed from scratch by a team of industry experts from Google, Dialpad's AI researchers, linguists, and academics over the last five years. This team includes 17 Ph.D.s and a broad array of AI technologists that continues to innovate and fuel growth in Dialpad’s Ai applications and deliver a faster go-to-market strategy than its competitors. Today, Dialpad is the only provider that has built and owns its entire Ai infrastructure stack across all modes of customer engagement, sales enablement, and collaboration, amassing over five billion minutes and billions of customer interactions from conversational and messaging data solving today’s traditional common qualms in AI – capacity, cost, security, and privacy.
"Dialpad's recognition in the Cloud 100 amid the AI era underscores our integral role in the AI market and dedication to propelling responsible AI advancements,” said Craig Walker, CEO & Founder of Dialpad. "In today's world where AI data reigns as the new currency, we aim to enable all enterprises, irrespective of size, to unlock their AI potential. By bringing together all modes of customer engagement, sales intelligence, and collaboration into one Ai-Powered Customer Intelligence Platform, we are able to overcome many of today’s current challenges when it comes to democratizing AI in the enterprise.”
Dialpad’s inclusion on the list celebrates the company’s continued AI innovation and momentum in 2023. This year alone, Dialpad hit several milestones including:
- The announcement of 12 new AI features designed to streamline everyday business operations, boost productivity, and improve employee and customer experiences
- Crossing $200M in Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) on the only unified Ai-Powered Customer Intelligence Platform
- Announcing a $50M pledge to accelerate AI innovation in 2023
- Having nine academic research papers written by Dialpad’s Ai Engineers, focusing on natural language processing (NLP), accepted at leading academic conferences including the North American Chapter of the Association for Computational Linguistics (NAACL), COLING 2022, and published on ARXIV
- Being named an Innovator in the Aragon Research Globe for Conversational Ai in Intelligent Contact Centers in 2023 along with being a Leader in Opus Research’s Decision Maker’s Guide to the Conversational Cloud
“The companies of the Cloud 100 list represent the best and brightest private companies in this crucial tech sector,” said Kenrick Cai, the Forbes editor of the Cloud 100. “This year’s companies had to react rapidly to AI’s sweeping impact while contending with a market pullback. Their resilience puts them in elite company. Congratulations to each of the 2023 Cloud 100 honorees and the 20 Rising Stars who are showing early potential to one day join their ranks.”
In 2021, Dialpad also acquired an Enterprise semantic search engine company, KARE Knowledgeware, taking a user's natural language queries to generate more relevant search results. Furthermore, Dialpad continues to elevate its generative Ai capabilities to fuel customer insights and improve sales and services teams' intelligence and interactions with customers.
For the eighth consecutive year, the Cloud 100 reviews submissions from hundreds of cloud startups and private companies each year. The Cloud 100 evaluation process involved ranking companies across four factors: market leadership (35%), estimated valuation (30%), operating metrics (20%), and people & culture (15%). For market leadership, the Cloud 100 enlists the help of a judging panel of public cloud company CEOs who assist in evaluating and ranking their private company peers.
