Dialpad Inc., the industry leader in AI-powered communication and collaboration, saw unparalleled channel growth in the second quarter of 2021, driven by demand for its cloud contact center. As Dialpad scales beyond $100M in annual recurring revenue (ARR), the company continues to leverage the channel as a leading revenue driver, accounting for more than half of overall revenue in the second quarter alone, up from 40% in the previous quarter.
“We have had another great quarter in the channel demonstrated by the team’s incredible contribution to company revenue while simultaneously doubling the number of registered partners in our new Partner Portal,” said Mike Kane, Senior Vice President of Global Channel Sales, Dialpad. “We’re excited to see our pipeline and booking growth hit record-breaking numbers and to continue supporting our partners in the next half of the year.”
In addition, Faith Sizto, Senior Manager, Partner Marketing, was named to the highly respected CRN Women of the Channel list for 2021. Faith and her team worked to increase awareness and demand generation for Dialpad and drive channel growth.

- Overall Growth: Dialpad’s channel represented 57% of overall sales in Q2, yielding a 151% increase compared to Q2 last year.
- Booking Growth: Dialpad increased bookings by 150% year-over-year in Q2 and saw quarter-over-quarter growth in both Midmarket (30%) and Enterprise (125%).
