Twilio (News - Alert), a provider of cloud telephony solutions, has just formed partnership with Parse, a provider of mobile app platform, to deliver the voice and messaging solution to Parse's Cloud Code customers.
The partnership will make Twilio's voice and messaging APIs easily available to users of Parse's Cloud Code with the launch of Twilio Cloud Module.
The Twilio Cloud Module is the first of many upcoming Parse integrations. These modules will make it easier than ever before to develop mobile applications that integrate with many third party services.
The cloud telephony solution also allows developers to add a scalable and powerful backend in minutes and launch the app in record time without ever worrying about server management, company officials said.
"We've always loved Twilio and folks at Parse have used it for many projects in the past so I'm incredibly excited about this partnership," said Ilya Sukhar, CEO and co-founder of Parse, in a statement. "It's just such a natural fit.”
According to Sukhar, the new Cloud Module makes it simple to hookup a mobile app to Twilio without having to maintain any intermediary servers at all. With the new Cloud Module, sending SMS will become a one line of code.
“Together we're working to revolutionize application development and I'm excited to see what it enables our mutual customers to do in the future!" Sukhar added.
Twilio's simple REST API also delivers a flexible, scalable and reliable way to access global telecommunications networks.
The solution also benefits developers whose apps require features such as interactive voice response, mobile app distribution via SMS, call automation or two-factor authentication.
"Parse is an excellent platform for developers," said Twilio CEO Jeff Lawson. "With Twilio Cloud Module, developers can bring their voice and SMS apps to market and scale their businesses faster than ever--we can't wait to see what Parse developers build with Twilio."
