This is Sunshine™
This is the platform that is as powerful and flexible as your business.
Bring together different systems to create natural conversations, so customers can message your business the way they’d message a friend. Create personalised interactive messaging with Sunshine Conversations’ tools and APIs.
Unify messages across channels
Grow your business one conversation thread at a time. With a unified channel API, you can send rich messages that work across web, mobile and social.
Orchestrate from one thread
Create a chat experience that switches easily across systems using conversation orchestration. Integrate your existing systems, bots or third-party software.
Conversation extensions allow you to create custom interactive experiences inside the chat window of any messaging channel. Customers can pick concert seats or view their shopping basket from right inside the chat.
