What’s new in SleekFlow: Programmable Messaging API for WhatsApp
Introducing our latest product - the Messaging API for WhatsApp! Designed for enterprise users and independent software vendors (ISV), the API offers a flexible and modular approach for developers to integrate their systems or applications with WhatsApp without being restricted by a specific front-end system.
Accessible through SleekFlow API portal, you can configure an unlimited number of WhatsApp Business accounts (WABA) and generate API keys for each WABA phone number with ease using a dashboard.
Key features and use cases
With the Messaging API for WhatsApp, developers can easily integrate WhatsApp messaging into their own custom-built applications or services to send messages, manage templates, and handle various types of media, such as images, videos, and documents.
Our Messaging API for WhatsApp is designed to be highly flexible, so developers can generate webhooks programmatically. We support incoming webhooks, which allow you to send WhatsApp messages in real-time based on your system's triggers. For example, businesses can set up incoming webhooks to receive a customer's request for an OTP, and then automatically send the requested OTP back to the customer via WhatsApp.
Similarly, our API can be configured with outgoing webhooks, which can be used to notify other applications when specific events occur on WhatsApp, such as when a new message is received or a customer is added to a contact list.
For example, a logistics company can send a shipping update via Whatsapp to a customer. Customers could use interactive buttons in the message to track the delivery status or reschedule the delivery. If the customer chooses to reschedule, an outgoing webhook can be configured to notify the driver dispatching system of the new delivery date.
With our Messaging API for WhatsApp, there are endless possibilities to create innovative customer experiences. For example, a department store could create a virtual help desk that can search the company's catalog, recognize uploaded images, and provide personalized recommendations to customers. By using the API to call up specific items based on customer requests, businesses can avoid the need to import the entire catalog into a help desk system. This not only saves on development effort but also reduces costs associated with storing and maintaining large amounts of data on third-party platforms.
