NGO IVRs powered by KooKoo-Ozonetel

In India, Cloud telephony is getting increasingly more acceptance and with the result, the telephony APIs are also showing exponential growth with businesses trying to build their custom apps for both telephony and mobile.

Ozonetel’s Kookoo platform supports open APIs and we have over 4000 developers who have registered on our platform. KooKoo is the simplest and easiest way to build telecom applications, IVRs, and outbound campaigns. KooKoo platform can be used to support a wide array of telephony functions. It does not know anything about a business application and it does not store the customer’s data. The ease of building apps using our APIs on KooKoo has made it a favorite in the developer community.

Grameen Foundation India together with Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is doing a lot of work with the AIDS patients in the marginalized sections of the society. Grameen Foundation India is supporting mobile health initiatives in India through their MOTECH Platform. At the core of the Motech platform, they have used KooKoo to build the apps that send out these reminders and alerts to the AIDs patients. The Treatment Advice by Mobile Alerts (TAMA) program aims to increase treatment for HIV/AIDS patients by sending reminders and alerts to patients and their caregivers. BBC Media Action, CARE and the World Health Program are also collaborating to improve the delivery of maternal and neonatal health services in Bihar using their MOTECH platform.

As more and more customers are leaning towards cloud telephony, there is going to be a huge surge in innovation in telephony applications. Being on the cloud gives customers lot more flexibility with building customized applications. Since each customer has unique requirements, they can now have their own uniquely designed solutions with minimum developer efforts. Ozonetel platform is built in such a way that it does not require extensive programming skills from the developers.

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
