Parley / Chat and Messaging

Easily communicate with your customers via chat and messaging

Secure and insightful real-time communication

The most secure contact channel

Offer messaging and chat in your own app or website via a highly secured channel. Identify your target audience so that you immediately have a complete profile and can provide the right answer to a substantive question. Parley's Chat and Messaging API allows you to show real-time data and the complete conversation history, all fully encrypted. The first nonpublic, privately owned chat and messaging solution available as API.

How it works

The Chat and Messaging API collects real-time data from your website or app. It sends out your messages and checks whether new messages have been received. Generate secure headers with authorization tokens to identify users and exchange encrypted messages.

The API can push and pull additional information. You can see from which page on the website the conversation is started, who started it and when. The API is also able to send out system messages and events, such as: ‘is typing…’ and ‘client closed the conversation’. Agents can see if a colleague picked up the conversation yet, and the customer can see with whom from the customer service team he’s having a conversation.

When a customer starts a conversation while he’s not logged in yet, and logs in during the conversation, the API is able to link those conversations together. This way, all the history of the user’s conversation is bundled. You'll get a notification when you receive a new message. You can also close the conversation at all times and pick it up when you want to. Choose by yourself when a conversation starts and ends. Whether it lasts a month or just a browser session.

This API helps you to...

Pick up the conversation

Continue the conversation between customer and service agent, whether you close the screen or leave it open all the time. The history of the conversation remains and the user receives a notification as soon as an agent responds.

Send and receive attachments

Send and receive attachments such as images or PDF files. Handle everything over one channel, so you don’t have to switch between different 

Adjust or build libraries

Adjust libraries to implement in your iOS, Android and web application or develop your own libraries. Easy to connect to any interface.
