Twilio offers scalable, cloud-based communications for web and mobile apps. This includes the ability for companies to call, SMS, chat, or video conference without having to create a communications infrastructure on their own. Further, Twilio can track tasks, evaluate worker performance and availability, and gather event data that can be used to create historical analytics reports.
Aftership is a shipment tracking platform designed to be built into a company’s website as a branded tracking page. It provides customers with details about a shipment, including what courier is delivering the package, where it is, and when it is estimated to be delivered. For the retailer, Aftership reduces logistical workload by monitoring the status of a shipment and automatically sending updates to customers as that status changes. It also helps retailers identify and respond to problems in their delivery systems by providing analytic reports on how many shipments were sent, delivered, lost, etc.
