Today, customers expect to interact with companies by using their favourite channel. We live in a society where the customer experience becomes more and more powerful. Maybe, you’ve already thought of creating your communication platform? However, it’s expensive and it takes time. What if a CPaaS was the solution to these issues? First of all, let’s explain what a « CpaaS » is.

What does CpaaS mean?

What is a CpaaS provider?

CPaaS stands for Communication Platform as a Service. It’s a cloud-based platform that allows companies to integrate real-time communications strategies by using different channels.  A CpaaS allows companies to interact with customers in the most adapted channel. Indeed, working with a CpaaS provider offers superior engagement from your end-users. CPaaS includes SMS, Voice, WhatsApp, RCS and many other channels. These are integrated through API’s (Application Program Interfaces).

Why you should use a CPaaS for your business

There are a lot of companies that communicate without a CPaaS. Companies that decide to manage their communications themselves are quickly overwhelmed by the workload. Most of the time, employees are not able to manage all the demands and this has consequences on customer service.

Companies who communicate without CPaaS can’t provide real-time solutions. Some of them invest a lot of time and money to create their own platform. The problem is that they need a large team of developers and it costs a lot of money. By creating their own communication architecture, companies choose themselves the channels through which they want to communicate instead of using users’ favourite channel. With our experience, we can help companies choosing the right channel for their users. Don’t hesitate to ask our experts.
