Conecta Messaging Platform

Conecta is a web-based messaging platform that enables communication via different communication channels. Conecta’s Rest API provides interfaces to communicate via SMS, email, web and mobile applications, Facebook messenger, and FB messenger bot. The next version of Conecta would enable connectivity via WhatsApp using a third-party integrator.

The Conecta application developed on the LAMP stack using Zend Framework 2 (MVC) and Javascript libraries. It can run on the WAMP stack on Windows machines.  Ideally one can have a development environment.
