Six years ago we launched Tropo with the idea to make it easy to power phone calls through a simple API. Since then, we’ve empowered thousands of developers to add voice and messaging to their applications.
From our very first sign-up in 2009, to powering thousands of mobile and voice applications, our mission has been the same: to make real-time communications more accessible and productive through great APIs.
Today we’re thrilled to share that Tropo is joining Cisco’s Collaboration Technology Group. Together we’ll enable completely new ways of communicating by opening up Cisco’s collaboration products to every developer on the planet (and maybe some off the planet…hey, they need collaborative tools on the International Space Station!) 🙂
Pretty simple; scale and timing.
From Enterprise to Service Providers, Cisco is hands down the most well respected brand in voice and video; and with their recent introduction of Spark, they are gearing up to put ultra high-quality video and collaboration tools into the pockets of every remote team, class room, space station and home office. If we slap an API on even half this stuff you’re all in for a serious treat!
BUT I LIKE YOU JUST THE WAY YOU ARE
That’s great, because we’re not going anywhere! Just about every Tropo product you know and love is here to stay and will continue to get better. And with a bigger team you’ll see a lot more of us at conferences and on the Tropo blog with sample apps and new ways to monetize your creations.
Lastly, from everyone at Tropo, we’d like to extend a huge thank you to all of our customers and Troponauts out there that helped us get recognized and continue to support our products. We could not have done it without you.
