Paris Innovation Center teams up with Startups
Part of its ambitious program to accelerate France Country Digitalisation,Cisco’s Paris Innovation Centersponsored the Web2day Startups Challenge, and hosted 20 startups over the 3 days, at the Cisco DevNet booth.
To illustrate some of Cisco Tropo APIs features, we showcased an IVR — Interactive Voice Response — which helped Web2Day participants navigate among the talks and hands-on program. Note that the Tech2Day is the technical track for developers inside the Web2Day global event.
The Tech2Day IVR featured :
a Tropo phone number speaks the next sessions (happening right now, at the exact moment you’re calling the number),
proposes you to subscribe to some sessions via the dial tone #1,
sends a SMS with details for the session you selected,
as you respond to the SMS with your email address, the IVR adds you to a Spark Room with other Tech2Day participants,
in this Spark Room, a bot listens and answers the /tech2Day command with a list of upcoming sessions.
