Now let’s see what we have on WhatsApp Business API

Whatsapp business API is specifically made for businesses who either large or looking to grow large. 

By this we mean, businesses that have a huge number of conversions on Whatsapp and can't able to handle in one Whatsapp business account. Whatsapp business API allows the company to handle one Whatsapp account by many agents. (without API, one account - one user only). 

Few added advantages over the Whatsapp Business app

  1. Multiple users can use the same account at a time. No restrictions.
  2. Can apply for Name and green tick, instead of using WhatsApp number 
  3. WhatsApp marketing messages can be sent with quick replies in bulk with personalisation.
  4. Can build Chatbots on WhatsApp, reducing huge time delays & agent work. 
  5. Integrated with your CRM, trigger notification messages on every event. 
  6. Set up quick replies and documents to be shared on the go. 
  7. Sequences and triggers can be automated
  8. Not just greeting messages, build an entire chatbot for user-initiated conversations.

Now you must understand how WhatsApp business API can ease your entire business process and gather more conversions with fewer efforts
