MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gupshup, one of the world’s leading messaging platforms handling 4 billion messages per month and technology behind Teamchat, is leading a bot revolution. The company announced today the launch of its smart messaging portal, Gupshup.io, an engine that provides developers a suite of advanced tools for messaging. It includes REST Application Programming Interface (APIs) that enable developers to build advanced, omni-channel messaging bots as well as Software Development Kits (SDKs) to enable in-app and in-web messaging.
“The era of smart messaging has begun,” said Beerud Sheth, founder and CEO of Gupshup. “Messaging is evolving from a basic communication tool into a platform for advanced services. Messaging is the new platform and bots are the new apps. Gupshup.io offers the most advanced tools for developers preparing to meet the explosive demand for messaging bots and services.”
Bots are software programs that send and receive messages similar to human users and communicate across a variety of messaging channels. The Gupshup.io portal provides developers with the tools to build bots. Gupshup APIs are omni-channel, which means one API can be used across multiple messaging channels such as SMS, Slack, Teamchat, Twitter and WeChat. Gupshup APIs support smart messages – structured messages with interactive fields to enable richer interactions than plain-text messages.
Furthermore, the Gupshup.io portal provides developers with mobile and web SDKs that can be quickly embedded into any existing app or site. These SDKs use the same advanced messaging functionality available in the Teamchat app powered by Gupshup. Developers can also embed preconfigured web widgets into their websites.
