The bots are coming to KooKoo

When we started with KooKoo, it was just a cloud telephony platform. It solved a specific need of allowing developers access to the telephony stack to build telephony apps using web programming languages. But as it matured, we knew that just voice would not be sufficient.
We already integrated with email and social media for specific customers based on their requirements. But it was not at a platform level.
So when Facebook launched their API we knew it was a perfect fit for KooKoo. We went ahead and integrated FB messenger API in KooKoo. Since Telegram, Slack and others also have well defined bot APIs, it was easy to integrate those also. Though we completed the integration in a couple of days, the FB review process took forever and finally they accepted our bot :)
So today we announce an early release version of our KooKoo chat bot API. Using simple XML tags you can now build your chat bots on KooKoo. All the 10,000+ developers on our KooKoo platform now have access to the bot API.
If you have already built a KooKoo app, building a Facebook bot is as easy as just replacing the <playtext> tags with <chat-reply> tags.

The main advantages you get by using our KooKoo platform is a single platform to manage all your communication needs. No need to learn new bot APIs everytime they release. KooKoo provides the abstraction. KooKoo will also take care of basic NLP processing for you. You can also integrate phone calling support with your bot API to provide a true multi channel experience to your users.

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

KooKoo Contact Center integration with WhatsApp

WhatsApp announced the launch of their business API yesterday. This is a big deal. A lot of businesses have been asking for WhatsApp integration and now its a possibility. Twilio has already launched an integration . Won't be long before we see a lot more integrations pop up. The most obvious use case is for support chat bots, alerts and reminders. But we at Ozonetel believe one other use case will become the dominant use case, WhatsApp as a support channel with human agents. We believe WhatsApp will become a dominant channel in contact centers world wide. There are multiple reasons for this: WhatsApp is ubiquitous. Everyone has the app. WhatsApp interface is well known to all customers. It is feature rich. You can share audio, video, location etc in the app itself. You can integrate bots for repetitive tasks. Being the leaders in cloud contact center solutions, we at Ozonetel knew that we had to integrate with the WhatsApp channel as early as possible.
