Last week, Cornerstone, a provider of cloud-based talent management applications that help companies recruit, train and manage and connect their employees, launched Cornerstone Marketplace, an app store that gives Cornerstone Marketplace customers to find and access apps, services and content using their Cornerstone accounts.
Scale has released an API that connects apps and workflows to a human workforce. After a single line of code calls the Scale API, Scale assigns a human member to complete the requested task. To start, the Scale workforce supports phone calls, transcription, and categorization services.
Telefonica, one of the largest telcos in Europe, announced Telenor (Norwegian-based carrier) as its first carrier partner for the BlueVia API platform. The first BlueVia API available to developers is billing services. In-app billing services remove the need for marketplaces like the Apple's app store or iTunes for mobile app purchases. Instead, consumers' purchases are added to their phone bills.
