BROADCAST API

Adding value to existing applications with notification technology.

Integrating notification functionality into existing applications can expand the use of an application and make it more valuable to your organization. In many cases it can streamline the distribution of important information and eliminate the need for a secondary platform.

Pocketstop’s Broadcast API (Application Programming Interface) provides you the ability to integrate the latest notification technology into new or the existing applications your team is already using.

The Broadcast API adds multi-channel notification broadcasting services to any existing application on an HTTP-supported platform. The interface platform resides on Microsoft Azure and automatically scales based upon load. To ensure data and system integrity, all data is backed up nightly with seven day retention.

Pocketstop’s notification system utilizes the power of the Broadcast API. Don’t just read about it. See it in action and talk to our communications specialist about how you plan to use the Broadcast API. Tell us about your application and request pricing today.
