Pizza Expo Podcast Episode 9- Dylan with Ring Central
[00:00:00.000] - Rev and Eric
We are back with another exciting episode of Who's at Pizza Expo. We're in the Marqii booth. We're with Dylan. Dylan what's you last, Dylan Riley with Ring Central. I know Mike Bausch talks about you like your Rudy, like he wants to carry you around and have a parade for you. I'm still not even sure what the cloud even means. What is Ring Central? Because Mike just gushes about you.
[00:00:23.280] - Dylan
Great. As he should.
[00:00:24.720] - Rev and Eric
Well he should.
[00:00:25.530] - Dylan
Yeah. So Ring Central is a cloud based phone system. The market leader. We work with companies big and small. So we essentially give Mike all the tools he needs to run his business and be successful. Taking phone calls, not having a limit on the calls they can take. Making your own auto attendants, reporting, texting, video conferencing. If you're business, whatever you need to communicate, we got it.
[00:00:52.320] - Rev and Eric
Wait, people use phones?
[00:00:52.570] - Dylan
Right! Most people just prefer to text.
[00:00:55.330] - Rev and Eric
I thought in the restaurant business, we were afraid of phones
[00:00:57.190] - Rev and Eric
Right? Well, you came around because COVID hit and their phones were blowing up.
[00:01:02.110] - Dylan
[00:01:03.060] - Rev and Eric
You were a lifeline, right? You were a lifeline that all of a sudden now we don't have four phone lines, we have the access to, like, 95 phone lines, right?
[00:01:12.690] - Dylan
More than that. They're part of the Ring Central cloud, and they have access to millions of phone lines.
[00:01:18.220] - Rev and Eric
[00:01:18.430] - Dylan
If they needed them.
[00:01:19.470] - Rev and Eric
[00:01:21.250] - Rev and Eric
So this is your first Pizza Expo?
[00:01:22.900] - Dylan
[00:01:23.200] - Rev and Eric
What are you thoughts so far?
[00:01:24.420] - Dylan
I love pizza. I love eating all the free pizza around. And it's in Vegas. So, uh, win-win-win.
[00:01:31.930] - Rev and Eric
I just wish it wasn't in August.
[00:01:32.890] - Dylan
Yeah, maybe October, November are better timing but its still been a lot of fun.
[00:01:40.150] - Rev and Eric
Is Ring Central, is it a monthly based service or a year long contract? Or are you guys doing any special offers for Pizza Expo people? What are you doing?
[00:01:48.820] - Dylan
Yeah, it's up to the customer. There are some discounts. If they wanted to pay monthly or annually. We do have a really cool phone if anybody wants to come by booth 350. We have a Yealink phone. We're doing half off, its indestructible pretty much. Throw it on the ground, drop it in water, drop it in beer, it still works. And we're doing some free months of service to help customers, you know move on over.
[00:02:11.280] - Rev and Eric
Awesome, awesome. I know you're really involved with the World Pizza Champions, which is cool. Great group of guys and gals and a lot of fun. They're the best of the best in this industry.
