    Creating a Emergency Outage IVR Response in Twilio Studio Article Header

    If you are part of a team that ensures the smooth operation of a contact center, you may be tasked with planning for the unknown. Surprises or rapidly changing situations are times when the value of a cloud-based voice solution shows through. In the case of an emergency — such as a weather-related closure, a facilities problem, or a personnel challenge — you may need to remotely activate a temporary change to your voice responder.

    In this article, I will use Twilio’s IVR solution to create an emergency outage message that can play for incoming callers, notifying them of an unmanned queue. This message can save customers time and frustration and give you space to ensure the health and safety of your team. If you follow along with me through the steps I present here, you’ll have a working outage message for your selected Twilio phone numbers.

    Integrate Discord and Sentiment Analysis with Twilio Flex Integrate Discord and Sentiment Analysis with Twilio Flex

    In this post, you will learn how to set up a Discord bot connected to Flex so agents can chat directly with customers on that platform, while pulling in sentiment analysis of previous messages. You will learn how to use IBM’s Tone Analyzer API and Segment to calculate a user’s sentiment from their texts in a Discord channel.

    Originally this project was created as a part of the 2021 Solutions Engineering Hackathon. We pared our original project down to the following for simplicity’s sake and to distill the project’s essence, which is to help contact center teams interact with customers directly in Discord. To see the original contents of the project, see this Github repo.

    To see a demo of the original project and background on why we chose Discord, check out this quick video below.

    Build a Trick or Treat Chatbot with Twilio Studio and Functions, and Node.js halloweenchatbot1.png

    With Halloween around the corner, I decided I wanted to build a chatbot to help people find trick or treat locations in their neighborhood. The idea was that a user could send an SMS to the chatbot’s phone number and interact with the bot to either find trick or treat locations, or add their location to the list of places giving out candy or hosting spooky events.

    In this article, you’ll learn how to build a chatbot like mine that you can customize however you like.

    Prerequisites

    To get started with this tutorial, you’ll need the following:

    Integrating Twilio with IBM Watson for an Enhanced Chatbot and IVR Experience Twilio Watson Chatbot

    For the last two decades, the A.I. and machine learning have been thrown around with more and more frequency. Research centers are investing in their development, more companies are using them to promote their products and – of course – more movies using them because they sound cool.

    But what do they actually mean?

    Artificial Intelligence is a technique for building systems that mimic human behavior or decision-making. Machine Learning is a subset of AI where algorithms are created which learn from data sets in order to solve specific tasks. These solvers are trained models of data that learn based on the information provided to them. All of this is derived from probability theory and linear algebra. ML algorithms use our data to learn and automatically solve predictive tasks.

    And let’s be honest: is there a better way to use A.I. and machine learning than searching for the best spots …

    7 Ways to Text From Your Computer (for Businesses & Individuals) send-text-from-computer.png

    Whether you're looking to send text messages to update your customers on their order or you want to confirm the time of your dinner date, it’s helpful to be able to text from your computer rather than your phone.

    From a business standpoint, it simply isn’t possible to text all of your customers because you can’t send text messages at scale using your personal phone. As an individual, it’s convenient to text from your computer, especially if you’re like me and frequently misplace your cell phone.

    Your use case will determine the method that you use to text from your computer, so think about your goals when looking for a solution. Do you want to send 1:1 texts to your friends from your computer? Are you a business looking for a one-to-many short message service (SMS) solution?

    We’ll cover a number of ways individuals and businesses can text from their …

    Streaming Studio Flow Executions with Event Streams Twilio Studio + Event Streams

    In this post, you will learn how to stream Twilio Studio Flow Executions with Twilio Event Streams. With Studio events being fully supported on Event Streams, you can now leverage webhooks to trigger external workflows or log steps in real-time as your Flow executes in Studio.

    Before Studio support for Event Streams you had two ways to achieve this:

    1. Adding HTTP Request widgets throughout your Flows to push events out to your external applications - This added complexity to the Flows and was largely a manual process.
    2. Polling the API’s Executions and Steps endpoints to retrieve complete logs for reporting - This required running batch jobs on a schedule to page through all the records and was a cumbersome process.

    So why is this useful?

    • It gives you additional options for triggering programmatic actions beyond a single webhook endpoint
    • It removes synchronous dependencies between your services and Twilio API …

    Twilioのビジネス向けフリーSMSを利用する Get_Started_With_SMS-jp

    この記事は、コンテンツマーケティング担当のJulie Griffinが、こちら(英語)で執筆した記事を日本語化したものです。

    スマートフォンは家に置き忘れると不安になるものであり、ポケットやバッグの中、デスクの上と、必ず手元にあるアイテムのひとつです。常に身近にあるモバイルデバイスという特性もあり、テキストメッセージとして広く知られるショートメッセージサービス(SMS)がパワフルなビジネスツールとして成立しやすい構図になります。

    SMSは98%という高い開封率を誇るため、顧客の関心を引く手段として非常に効果的です。しかし、コミュニケーションツールとして過度に利用されてもいけません。スマートフォンが(“もう1つの手”というほど)身近な存在であることを踏まえると、企業には、SMSを適切に利用し、顧客の信頼を得ながら効果的なコミュニケーションを図ることが求められます。

    この記事では、SMSのビジネス利用(送信)をおカネをかけずに始める3つの方法と、ビジネスを成功させるSMS利用のヒントを紹介します。

    SMSをビジネスに活用する方法

    お知らせや注文通知、プロモーションキャンペーンなど、ビジネスにおけるSMS活用は、お客様とのコミュニケーションを強化する手段となります。

    SMSのビジネス利用

    最も一般的なSMSのビジネス利用は、注文確認、追跡通知、サインインのお知らせなどトランザクション系のものです。これらは短文で用途が限定され、すぐに見てもらいたい内容であることから、SMSに適したメッセージと言えます。

    プロモーションのテキストメッセージも、セールスや割引のお知 …
