Through partnership with Twilio, Mobile Commons messaging customers can now deliver automated campaigns via Facebook Messenger and SMS

AUSTIN, Texas, March 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Upland Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: UPLD), a leader in cloud-based Enterprise Work Management software, today announced the company has joined the Twilio Partner Program as a SaaS Partner. Via Twilio's cloud communications platform (NYSE: TWLO), Upland Software will now provide customers of its Mobile Commons messaging application the ability to drive messaging campaigns through both SMS and Facebook Messenger.

The Mobile Commons mobile CRM and messaging platform is an enterprise-grade application that allows governments, non-profits, healthcare providers and commercial enterprises to drive automated and personalized SMS campaigns at scale. The new Facebook Messenger integration through Twilio's API will allow organizations to deliver their critical communications campaigns through both SMS and Facebook Messenger in a simultaneous and seamless fashion. This is in addition to the out-of-the-box integrations that Mobile Commons has already built to connect with 3rd party CRM and reporting applications.

"The traditional marketing database goes well beyond voice and email," said Jed Alpert, SVP of Digital Engagement Solutions at Upland Software. "The ability for our customers to reach their audience through SMS, MMS, and now social platforms like Facebook Messenger, along with the robust personalization and automation of our Mobile Commons application, is a real game-changer."

Mobile Commons' Platinum Success Plan Customers will be able to experience an early release of the Facebook Messenger functionality later this year. 

"We are pleased to have Mobile Commons join the Twilio Partner Program," said Steve Mooney, head of alliances at Twilio. "In today's world, it is critical for businesses to give customers choice by being present on all the channels where they communicate. Mobile Commons' mobile messaging for Facebook Messenger will offer their customers expanded reach and personalization opportunities."

"SMS campaigns on Mobile Commons are the heart of our communications strategy," said Tessa Heydinger, Product Manager at ICF. "Our organization targets a younger demographic where they spend most of their time, and Facebook Messenger through Mobile Commons will allow us to extend our reach and deepen engagement with this audience in a more effective way."
