apifonicaTADSummit is pleased to announce that Finland-based communications provider Apifonica  has become a sponsor.

Apifonica’s solutions enable voice calls, SMS messaging and phone numbers inventory management for web and mobile applications serving more than a hundred million users worldwide.

Apifonica sees its mission in becoming a unified interface to global telecom infrastructure by ensuring messages and voice delivery across the globe. To achieve this, the company is constantly extending its direct carrier connectivity. As of July 2017, it has more than 120 direct carrier connections in 46 countries (including all EU countries).

Apifonica strives to furnish developers with a uniform tool for deployment of SMS and voice-enabled apps across the largest single market in the world: the European Union, and beyond. Apifonica takes pride in its deep knowledge of the immense complexity of the traditional telecom’s inner workings, which is crucial to ensure both messages’ delivery and superb quality of voice connection while maintaining competitive pricing.

Apifonica’s 3 core products are:

  • SMS API: Programmatic access to SMS sending and reception, necessary to build text messaging  solutions including two-way texting, SMS chats, two-factor authentication, trigger based notifications, message broadcasting and anything else.
  • Voice API: Facilitates the establishment, control and termination of voice calls between fixed, mobile and SIP endpoints, and enables fast deployment of all kinds of voice chat, call back, web call, and voice response software solutions.
  • Phone Numbers Inventory management by means of API call enables instant acquisition and release of phone numbers in dozens of countries, along with non-geographical SIP numbers.

Some example use cases from Apifonica’s customers include bulk texting, 2-way authentication, automated appointment reminders via voice & SMS, SMS alerts on tech assets malfunction and programmable IVR (Interactive Voice Response).

World’s 4th largest classifieds ads website with more than 30 million active ads listed uses Apifonica’s disposable phone numbers to enable safe in-app communication between its users.  Eastern Europe’s largest ride-hailing service leverages Apifonica to notify passengers about vehicle’s arrival by SMS. Since 2011, the service has served more than a hundred million rides in Russia, Ukraine, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Georgia.

Connected services of tomorrow will move away from today’s app or site paradigm to a more humanistic user interface – everything we use today will increasingly become able to speak with or text with the user. This is why programmatic control of voice and messaging interactions is critical  for any business – and this is why it is hard to overestimate the importance of business-oriented events like TADSummit“, – said Janne Timonen, Managing director at Apifonica.

Business impact of voice and messaging APIs is already tremendous, and we are set to see this impact increase manyfold” – stated TADSummit’s founder Alan Quayle. “It is a pleasure to join forces with like-minded people in Apifonica to spread the common vision of programmable telecoms important role in the future of IT “.
