– MessageBird, a cloud communications platform that creates APIs for developers and AI-powered contact center tools, is shelling out $600m to acquire SparkPost, an email delivery, optimization, and analytics platform.
– Alongside the acquisition, Netherlands-based MessageBird announced that it has significantly extended its series C round of funding from the $200m it announced in October to $1bn.
– Founded in 2011, MessageBird serves up a Twilio-like platform that enables app makers to add WhatsApp messaging, voice, SMS, and email functionality to their software through APIs — saving them from having to develop the infrastructure internally.
– Last year, MessageBird launched Inbox, an omnichannel contact center platform that centralizes in-bound communications.
