Plivo is here to provide solutions and solve problems. Our team of support engineers is available at no extra cost, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Volume pricing from the start, no long-term contracts or volume commitments. The more messages you send, the cheaper it gets.
Plivo's APIs provide functions that enable your web application to perform telephony operations such as Outbound Calling, Fetching Number List, Checking Account Details etc. You can also do some nifty things like Transfer an Existing Call, Send Group SMSes, Forward Calls to different telephone numbers etc.
Your application can use a combination of Plivo XML and APIs to build a set of telephony operations. When your web application interfaces with Plivo, in many instances, it is expected to send an XML response back to Plivo. Plivo has defined a set of XML elements that the application must use to control the progress of the operation.
The helper libraries simplify the process of interacting with Plivo. All libraries are open sourced and are hosted on Github.
