OpenVBX Support in KooKoo

Adapted from Random Musings by Sandeep:

It's finally here. As you all know, OpenVBX is open source web phone system created by Twilio. It allows you to create your business phone system using a simple drag and drop approach. Accompanied by its plugin repository, it has become a very successful and hacker friendly for people to come out with very innovative integrations. You can find some videos here:

You want A/B testing of your call flows, we got you covered. You want call routing, that's there too. What about CRM integration? Absolutely yes. You can find these and a lot more plugins at the Plugin Repository

Because it is such a useful system and it is open source, other telephony guys have also provided their own flavours, the most famous of which is TropoVBX

We have also been thinking of releasing a KooKoo patch for OpenVBX, but for lack of time we were not able to get around to it. But luckily, Sandeep from Talkifi setup a project at StalkNinja as he had a need for such a system. Thanks to the ease of the OpenVBX system and KooKoo APIs it was immediately taken up and completed by a first year IIT Chennai student Mr.Janardhan. You can find the project details here, http://stalkninja.com/project/95

Sandeep has used the system and very graciously has agreed to share the code on our request. So you can download OpenVBX adapted to KooKoo here.



So go ahead, download KooKooVBX and use it to build your own innovative cloud business phone systems. Since it is all in PHP, you are free to create/hack your own system and resell it on top of KooKoo and take advantage of the robust platform and spread of KooKoo(present in 8 states) in one go.

Integrating Arborjs with Angular to create a live calls dashboard

Arborjs  is a cool graph visualization library. Angular  is one of the best JavaScript frameworks and we have been using Angular in a lot of our front end development. When you handle millions of calls, proper visualization becomes very important. Without proper visualization, you can get lost in the mountains of data. So we spend a lot of time to come up with good visualizations to represent the data. Since we loved the cool way in which Arbor represented graph data, we could not wait to hook it up with Angular. Because of Angular's two way data binding, when you hook up Angularjs with Arbor.js you can get a dynamically updated visualization of graph data with cool animations. To give back to the community, we have put up the code online at Github . Basically we have created an Angularjs directive for Arborjs. Please feel free to fork the code and add extensions and use it for your own visualizations. The code is self explanatory with comments inline. Best way to get s

Mashing up Freshdesk with KooKoo for customer support ticket management

Sorry for the delay in writing a blog post. I have been caught up in too many things since last month(we are growing, so its all good :)) Anyway, this week I thought I will look at how we can use the latest rockstar startup from India, Freshdesk . Freshdesk, as most of you know is one of the best "Social Helpdesk" systems out there. I am sure most of you are already using Freshdesk to support your customers. In this blogpost I will explain how you can add telephony to the mixture. In particular I will show some code which you can use to : Welcome the caller by name Ask him to enter his ticket id Play out the ticket status Connect the caller to the correct agent handling the ticket. Luckily for us, Freshdesk has a very well defined API and it was a pleasure to work with it. The engineers were also very supportive and answered all my queries quickly. So lets get into the code directly. 1. First we need to get the caller information. For this we need to a
