When it comes to winning customers and keeping them satisfied, communication is key. Integrating phone calls and text messages into an application or website is one way to stay actively in touch, and VoiceShot is a tool to help make that possible. VoiceShot IVR (Interactive Voice Response) provides the tools to quickly automate both incoming and outgoing phone calls and send and receive text messages. The VoiceShot API allows developers to integrate this IVR functionality with their own websites and applications.
For developers to build their own telephony apps they need to be able to mimic the various legs of the telephony infrastructure (switching, call routing, event notifications, and more) known as flow control. The Bandwidth API allows developers to bypass building the flow control from scratch.
Earlier this year, we reported the first 3 winners of the Twilio Startup Fund, which aims to invest $250K in start-ups that use Twilio, the popular Telephony platform. The next set of 6 recipients of the Twilio Fund have been announced. The applications range from an innovative crowd-sourced labor platform to helping out law enforcement agencies.
