The Executive Team

Colin Chandler

Dialect’s Chief Executive Officer has over three decades experience in the ICT industry in Asia Pacific and American markets. He’s passionate in his belief that quick and efficient payment is mission-critical to overall business process.

"Financial Institutions and their merchants need technology and processing services that address the requirements of survival in the global electronic market place. They must encompass global currencies, standards and security requirements. The platforms that provide these services must integrate to the core business infrastructure of our customers enterprise” affirms Col.

Col says Dialect builds platforms to address robust and pragmatic processing anywhere in the world. “We ensure clients easily adopt new and transformative payment mechanisms.” Col sees all these elements as central to the way Dialect builds and deploys solutions. “Dialect’s platform gives clients much greater cost efficiencies with robust leading edge functionality.”

He’s confident it's the reason Dialect solutions are chosen by some of the biggest Financial Institutions and merchants in the world.

Dr. Neville O'Reilly

Dialect VP Global Business Development  Dr. Neville O'Reilly has a 30 year record of achievement creating product and market strategies in internet and advanced technology arenas and getting them implemented. He has held senior positions in product development, marketing, finance and operations in the telecommunications, software and imaging industries. He holds a PhD in Mathematical Statistics from Columbia University in New York City.

"I joined Dialect because of the company’s mission to make Payments the "fifth P" of marketing. At the end of the day, for any business, it comes down to getting paid. And often, new types of innovative transactions and new customer segments go unaddressed because there is no ready payment mechanism to support them. Dialect solves these problems: our mission is that no enterprise venture or transaction will fail because of the lack of an effective payment mechanism."

Martin A. Reeves

He feels his extensive process re-engineering background will "Help Dialect customers realize significant payment process time and cost reductions"

Warren Shaw

Dialect’s VP Payment Technologies began his background in large and complex IT projects in the early 80's with IBM. He continued through the nineties with international software companies and focused on business process re-engineering in supply chain management and financial administration.

It positioned him when he joined Dialect in 1999 to focus on new generation payment processing initiatives. "Traditional suppliers of payment technologies often sell point solutions without any real understanding of the impact on overall corporate productivity and revenue. We believe corporations want to address the entire spectrum of payments administration, including leveraging new technologies such as mobile and micro payments."

Warren believes this is the Dialect difference. “Our customers know the value of an interactive corporate payments solution and what it does to their bottom line. That's because we work closely with them to re-engineer their payment systems and processes. We not only reduce administration costs but increase sales revenues through highly innovative interactive payments with their customers. "
