October 19, 2018
Partnership to Provide Programmable Communications APIs to Businesses in Europe

HOLMDEL, N.J., Oct. 16, 2018 — Vonage (NYSE: VG), a business cloud communications leader, announced today that Nexmo, the Vonage API Platform (Nexmo) has partnered with CUBES by KPN to expand delivery of innovative communications APIs in Europe.

KPN has added Nexmo and its entire portfolio of communication services to the CUBES API Store to further support enterprises in the EU, beginning with the Netherlands.

In today’s mobile landscape, businesses need communications tools to enhance internal communications and collaboration inside the company, while also providing their customers with exceptional experiences, service and support. Cloud communications technology, powered by programmable communications via APIs, enables enterprises to improve the ways they engage with their customers through personalized, contextual communications for more meaningful conversations, on virtually any platform and on any device. In fact, Gartner has predicted that by 2020, “75% of application purchases supporting digital business will be build and not buy,” which speaks to the power and potential of the programmable market.

“APIs have proven to play an important role in developing new propositions for consumer and business to business markets,” said Anuschka Diderich, Thought Leader for APIs at KPN. “With our API store we provide developers, innovators and product owners access to building blocks to build and enrich their own propositions, and we’re excited to offer the full catalog of game-changing Nexmo APIs.”

Nexmo APIs Offer Global Communication Solutions

Nexmo’s global capabilities span the core communication APIs across voice, SMS, IP messaging, video and authentication. Using Nexmo tools available in the CUBES API store, European companies can easily integrate best-in-class communication experiences into their own websites and apps, including SMS alerts for smart home systems, two-factor authentication to protect against fraud, embedded video allowing a patient to communicate with a doctor by video chat for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment, and more.

“Businesses today must adapt to meet the demands of tech-savvy customers looking for contextual communications and more intuitive apps that make communication personal, relevant and seamless,” said Mark Summerson, Global Partner Program Director for Nexmo, the Vonage API Platform.

“Nexmo is thrilled to be one of the first API providers to partner with CUBES by KPN and offer our innovative, easy-to-integrate communications solutions to businesses of all sizes throughout the Dutch market.”

Nexmo provides developers with APIs that allow them to incorporate innovative communication experiences directly into their applications. With these tools as well as a robust suite of unified communications solutions, Vonage is transforming how companies communicate and how they operate, embracing cloud communications to enhance productivity, engage customers more effectively, and ultimately, deliver better business outcomes.
