CM introduces Whatsapp for companies

Mobile service provider CM brings WhatsApp messaging to companies. The new service lets companies interact and engage with customers through a dashboard, which CM connects to WhatsApp.

Currently, we are developing an application for desktop or laptop, which our customers can use to send WhatsApp notifications to their target groups and individual end users. The application allows them to send their updates faster and more convenient. We expect the application is ready-to-use on October 1st.

No official API for WhatsApp

Developing this WhatsApp application for companies requires more effort since WhatsApp has not published an official API for developers yet. Furthermore WhatsApp does not support third parties to connect to their services and in some cases forbid and blocks other uses from their application. Therefore, we offer the Corporate WhatsApp service with an SMS backup variant so that communications between companies and their users are granted.

The demand is high

CEO of CM, Jeroen van Glabbeek on the WhatsApp development: “We’ve thought about developing this for a long time, because we get so many questions regarding this topic. Despite WhatsApp not supporting this, or maybe even blocking it, we decided to introduce this application. We could no longer ignore all the questions and the demand for this application."
