WhatsApp Messaging Allows Global Enterprises to Enhance Customer Engagement and Brand Awareness
TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 22, 2021 – Syniverse, the world’s most connected company, today announced it is offering enterprises and independent software vendors the opportunity to use the WhatsApp Business Application Programming Interface (API) within its Syniverse CPaaS Concierge Software as a Service (SaaS) platform offering. WhatsApp is the leading rich and interactive messaging service used by more than two billion people in over 180 countries and 60 languages to stay in touch with family and friends.
WhatsApp Business API is specifically built for medium-to-large businesses to send messages across the customer journey at scale, using automation, personalization, and interactive options that streamline processes and improve the overall customer experience. The WhatsApp Business API offers rich and engaging real-time communication when paired with Syniverse’s CPaaS Concierge platform.
The Syniverse CPaaS Concierge offers enterprises the option to effortlessly create and deploy automated workflows across different platforms including the Syniverse Salesforce application to chat with customers via WhatsApp and seamlessly add the conversation record for future reference.
Syniverse’s CPaaS Concierge, a cloud-based omnichannel communications, is comprised of five important elements used by Global 2000 enterprises and brands in the technology, financial services, communications, retail and logistics, and travel and hospitality market segments. They are:
- Mobile messaging has evolved beyond SMS and MMS; the demand for media-rich messaging channels such as rich communication services (RCS), Apple Chat, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, WeChat, and many others are increasing. Syniverse offers a wide selection of rich channels, allowing enterprises to leverage the more effective ones to their target audiences.
- A robust toolbox featuring identity and security-related tools to address growing fraud and security concerns of enterprises and mobile end users.
- An orchestration engine that allows channels and other value-added features to be combined with workflows and decision intelligence to create more sophisticated and useful mobile engagement solutions.
- A vast library of programmable connectors and integrations into key enterprise resources planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and SaaS platforms that allow mobile engagement solutions to "plug-and-play" with existing enterprise platforms.
- A “white-glove” support model where Syniverse “co-creates” mobile customer engagement initiatives. An industry-leading portfolio of consultative professional services lends additional support to transformation of the mobile experience. This element applies to “brick and mortar” enterprises challenged with their own digital transformations. This element also involves the integration of a chatbot into WhatsApp conversations where Syniverse helps enterprises build conversational models for the chatbots.
