The main features of Kaleyra are listed below:
WhatsApp is a simple, safe and reliable way for companies to contact their customers all over the world.
The API WhatsApp Business client supports a series of functions provided by WhatsApp applications similar to those some people may already be familiar with used by Android, iOS and Web messaging clients and other platforms, including end-to-end encryption. The difference is that this application can be server enabled, providing a local API to send and receive messages in a programmed way, integrating this workflow with corporate systems (CRM, customer service, etc.).
WhatsApp Messenger is free for the Customer.
If the Customer starts the chat with the Client (Pull mode), a temporary 24-hour window will open in which any free-format text response can be sent. Viceversa, if the Client contacts the Customer in Push mode or answers a question after 24 hours have passed from when the Customer sent the first message, it will only be able to use Message Templates for a fee. Message Templates are formatted for the messages most often used repeatedly by the Client. Companies must use the message models to send notifications to their customers. This lets a Client send just the model identifier with the appropriate parameters instead of the whole message.
Furthermore, Message Templates provide support for immediate localization: messages sent to a Customer with a Message Template are displayed in the language set in the local device settings (if the message in the required language has been configured). Optionally, a Client can also specify a default language to display the message in if there is no translation.
The Client must activate its WhatsApp account, that is the WhatsApp number that it will use to chat with Customers. The number must not be connected to a device via WhatsApp.
The defined account must be shared with Kaleyra.
Kaleyra will execute the process to activate every numeration, during which an OTP message will be sent to the numeration. The code in the OTP message must be shared with Kaleyra to complete the procedure.
In order to proceed with the production release, the Client must have the screenshot of his Facebook Business Account, in which it is shown that the Account is verified.
During the number activation procedure it is necessary to define a display name.
The WhatsApp for Business API solution it’s an easy-to-integrate feature of Kaleyra. Allows clients to send WhatsApp instant messages worldwide by engaging one-on-one conversations with a potential audience of over 1.5 billion people.
