SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Dialpad today announced it ranked 186th on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and energy tech companies in North America between 2012 and 2015. Dialpad grew 451% percent during this period.
Dialpad's Chief Executive Officer Craig Walker credits the company's 451% growth to the company's pure cloud approach to voice, video, messaging and conferencing, plus the growing demand from global enterprises for technologies that accommodate the needs of an increasingly distributed workforce. "We started Dialpad with a mission to kill the desk phone. Modern workers need to be accessible from anywhere at any time on any device and our pure cloud solution gives them that freedom without any of the hassles or costs of a legacy desk phone system," said Craig Walker, CEO of Dialpad. "Our rapid growth shows that this approach is working and that any business shifting to the cloud for email or documents must have a similar solution for voice communications. Dialpad is easy to deploy, hardware-free and simplifies how workers connect and communicate with each other through voice, video, messaging, SMS, and conferencing, or whatever way they prefer." "Today, when every organization can be a tech company, the most effective businesses not only foster the courage to explore change, but also encourage creativity in using and applying existing assets in new ways, as resourcefully as possible," said Sandra Shirai, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications industry leader. "This ingenious approach to innovation calls for the encouragement of curiosity and collaboration both within and outside the office walls." "This year's Fast 500 winners showcase that when organizations are open to diverse perspectives and insights, they are able to create an environment for their employees and customers to see the possibilities and ingenious solutions that might lie ahead," added Jim Atwell, national managing partner of the emerging growth company practice, Deloitte & Touche LLP. "Entrepreneurial environments foster change and innovation within businesses, and we look forward to watching these companies continue to drive change across all sectors." Overall, 2016 Technology Fast 500™ companies achieved revenue growth ranging from 121 percent to 66,661 percent from 2012 to 2015, with median growth of 290 percent.
