We are excited to announce that the Plivo Helper Library for Salesforce is now available. This means that adding high quality voice calling and SMS text messaging capabilities to your Salesforce and Force.com app is easier than ever. This Salesforce Helper Library allows new and existing Salesforce applications to leverage Plivo’s robust carrier network and access 1600+ networks worldwide, phone numbers in 8000+ area codes, free incoming SMS in 19+ countries, and experience an average savings of 48% compared to other cloud-communication services.
Salesforce is a leading customer relationship management (CRM) service that includes a broad set of integrated tools including analytics, marketing, collaboration, and other custom apps. Recently, Salesforce launched AppExchange, an online application marketplace for third-party applications built on Salesforce’s Force.com platform. Plivo’s Salesforce Integration allows business to add voice and SMS text messaging capabilities to new Salesforce Apps and those already on the AppExchange.
What is it?
We wrote the Plivo Helper Library for Salesforce to include Apex classes that allows you interact with Plivo’s voice and SMS APIs. This includes the ability to send and receive text messages, as well as make and receive phone calls via the Plivo REST API. For more details on the methods present in the PlivoRestApi class, visit the Plivo Helper Library for Salesforce.
What can you do with it?
Existing and new Salesforce applications can now leverage Plivo’s APIs to make phone calls and send text messages to their users in over 200 countries. Plivo’s full-featured voice and SMS APIs also allow you to record voice calls for free, initiate bulk calling and texting campaigns, retrieve voice and SMS text message details within Salesforce, provision phone numbers instantly, and many more.
Below are examples of Salesforce applications that are currently using Plivo’s voice and SMS APIs:
