Social Media - Facebook Posts

Social Media is now part of the Conversations product! We have integrated Facebook Posts which allows you to handle customer inquiries over Facebook wall posts and comments, thus making the entire process familiar to your customers.

Some of the features include:

  • Fetching posts

  • Fetching comments on posts

  • Commenting on posts

  • Replying (in the name of a Facebook page/brand) to comments on posts

Check how to configure and start using Facebook Posts within Conversations via Infobip web interface.

The latest additions are meant to keep your analytics better organized and easy to access for any future communication, as well as to achieve an even more targeted audience segmentation.

Speech Recognition

Enriching our IVR solution, we're introducing the Speech Recognition functionality which captures end-user's speech based on your preconfigured scenario. This feature gives you more flexibility when communicating with your customers as it helps them communicate more freely and efficiently - not just via digits as is the usual case with IVR but through speech as well.
