We, at Plivo, make it easier for businesses and software developers to use cloud-powered Voice and SMS communications.
We offer HTTP APIs that let you build Voice and SMS applications or integrate such capabilities into your web or mobile application in any web standard language. We simplify the notorious complexity of the telephony business into a simple infrastructure service for you: we take care of everything from carriers contracts to call quality and messaging deliverability to technical support.
We've helped businesses of various sizes to build common Voice and SMS applications for their customers, the product and team such as customer call center, web conference, SMS notification and more. At Plivo, you can easily build a customized solution that exactly meets the sophisticated needs of your business, which you cannot with ready-made solution providers very often.
Our story goes back to 2011, when our two founders, Mike and Venky, accidentally exchanged messages on Github. They've been seeking a robust communications platform to develop and integrate Voice and SMS capabilities for their web applications. They couldn't find any platform that matched their standard, so they decided to build their own solution; hence Plivo Open Source, which soon after was turned into a full-featured cloud platform, Plivo Cloud.
