Clickatell Connect API Assists SMS Incorporation into Apps

November 27, 2012

Clickatell (News - Alert) has unveiled its latest “Connect API”, which is specially designed for software developers. The application-programming interface allows software developers to incorporate short-message service, or SMS, account generation and management functionality into their applications in a simplified manner. The API also ensures that the developers are able to maintain their customers in the application’s user interface.

Developers can now ensure that their end users are active and working with assistance from the Connect API. The worldwide SMS messaging services from Clickatell can be easily used in reminder, revise or promotion offerings. Clickatell handles the invoices for messaging directly with the end user, thereby freeing the developers from licensing and conventional messaging reseller tasks. Clickatell manages all inquires directly with the end users, decreasing assistance accountability for messaging services.

Developers can incorporate capabilities like registering for a Clickatell account, activating the account, configuring an API for the account and administering the account, all on the behalf of an end user using Connect API. The XML-based Connect API allows developers to buy credits for the account and two -way messaging capabilities apart from tracking account status.

In a statement, Bill Wolfe, chief strategy officer and EVP, Small and Medium Business, Clickatell said, “It is our goal to provide a reliable, simple solution for application developers to work with any system to set up and send messages throughout the Americas region. We believe these new APIs address some of the biggest concerns for software developers and we’re excited to share this new offering with our customers.”
