Let's dive into the details.

Who can use this feature
Sentiment analysis is available to Dialpad customers on Ai Sales and Ai Contact Center on all plans.

Dialpad Ai is available in English and Spanish for offices in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

Types of sentiment

Sentiment can range from very positive to very negative, and sentiment analysis tools should be able to identify and classify conversations as they evolve. 

Dialpad Ai highlights the good, the bad, and neutral sentiments to understand the reasons behind customers' frustration or satisfaction. It then guides agent training to improve on appropriate responses.

Positive Sentiment

 identifies when the customer says something that indicates they are very pleased.

  • "We loved the demo, it was very informative."
  • "I absolutely love this feature!"

Negative Sentiment

identifies when the customer says something that indicates they are frustrated or dissatisfied. 

  • "This isn’t working and I’m getting really frustrated."
  • "I'm extremely upset about this."

Neutral Sentiment 

identifies when the customer is says something that cannot be concretely defined as positive or negative. Remember, a conversation is fluid and not every sentence, word, or phrase is necessarily positive or negative.

  • "I'll look into that tomorrow."
  • "Okay, we'll do that."

How to use sentiment

Dialpad tip:

Using sentiment for coaching

If they respond positively, be sure to mention it again to improve your pitch later on.

Frequently asked questions

Why can’t I see any calls with a positive or negative sentiment on the agent side of the call?

Sentiment is a customer-side moment; it's only detected when the customer displays positive or negative sentiment.

Is sentiment available for coaching teams?

Yes! Managers with a Dialpad Ai Sales license can also filter for calls of interest through the coaching teams. These calls can then be used for coaching; either in your next 1-on-1 or by sharing the playlist with your team.
