If you are a social enterprise or non-profit that needs a good platform to communicate with suppliers or customers, Twilio’s product might be what you are looking for. Twilio is a $16 billion cloud communications company that facilitates communications by enabling phones, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), and messaging to be embedded into Web, desktop and mobile software.
For social enterprises, they offer $500 credit to qualifying companies and heavy discounts on their product. To provide some reference to the quality of Twilio’s platform – it is used by companies like Salesforce, Match.com, Airbnb, American Red Cross, Whatsapp, and the New York Times. Well worth checking out.
