When it comes to creating customer journeys and business communications for today’s customer – immediacy and consistency is key. We are living in a time where we can reach anyone or anything at the touch of a button. It is crucial for businesses to adapt their digital strategies to ensure they are sending the right information, to the right person, in the right format, at the right time to ensure the right outcome.
A Communications Platform as a Service (or CPaaS) solution works in exactly this way. It allows businesses to reach out to customers, patients and employees using each customers’ preferred communication channel – and ensures the contact can continue the conversation on any channel they wish, whenever they’re ready.
Frost and Sullivan define CPaaS as any cloud-based platform that enables developers to programmatically embed voice, video, chat and messaging services within their business or consumer applications.

What is CPaaS?
CPaaS is a platform enabling businesses to integrate real-time communication channels into their existing web and mobile applications. When an action is taken, such as a new booking is made, a login is attempted, an update to a delivery journey is recorded or the calendar recognises an upcoming appointment, the CPaaS solution will trigger the desired outreach via the preferred communication channel.
A CPaaS solution is usually used alongside a business’ existing applications and leveraged to deliver the communications features of the application.
When a variety of available communication channels are leveraged strategically, it can help organisations redefine how they engage with their clients, partners and employees.
A CPaaS solution enables more meaningful communication with an organisation’s customers, employees, patients or citizens. The sophistication of the tool enables a fully integrated and automated experience to help scale communications and to engage and advance the user experience.
