LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) November 28, 2022
Sendbird is excited to announce it is a recipient of a 2022 Regional and Global AWS Partner Award, recognizing leaders around the globe playing a key role helping customers drive innovation and build solutions on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Announced during a Partner Awards Gala at AWS re:Invent 2022, the Regional and Global AWS Partner Awards recognize a wide range of AWS Partners, whose business models have embraced specialization, innovation, and cooperation over the past year. Regional and Global AWS Partner Awards recognize partners whose business models continue to evolve and thrive on AWS as they work with customers.
Sendbird Chat is a complete in-app chat platform with application programming interfaces (APIs), software development kits (SDKs), and user interface (UI) kits that currently supports over 270 million active users and 6 billion messages a month, with a global cloud system spanning nine AWS Regions. Sendbird’s conversations platform for mobile apps supports chat, voice, and video – all on AWS. Leading brands like Reddit, DoorDash, PicPay, and Krafton use Sendbird to drive increased transactions and loyalty for hundreds of millions of users every month.
“We are honored to be recognized by AWS as a Rising Star Partner of the Year (ISV) in APJ,” said Sendbird co-founder and CEO John S. Kim. “This award underscores the tremendous business value we deliver to our joint customers, transforming how brands communicate with their intended audiences.”
“Payments are turning into conversations, but we are not in the chat business. PicPay turned to Sendbird to take in-app social interactions to the next level on our world-class payment platform and create an even more engaging user experience,” said Luiz Fernando Diniz, vice president of PicPay Social. “The fact that Sendbird is built on AWS and certified as an AWS Partner made our decision that much easier.”
For the first time, Regional and Global AWS Partner Awards included a self-nomination process across a number of award categories and specialization areas awarded at both the regional and global level where all AWS Partners were invited to participate and submit a nomination.
The AWS Partner Network (APN), is a global program, focused on helping companies build successful AWS-based businesses or solutions by providing business, technical, marketing, and go-to-market support. The APN includes independent software vendors (ISVs) and systems integrators (SIs) around the world, with AWS Partner participation growing significantly during the past 12 months.
“AWS Partners are at the center of unlocking value for global customers, across a wide range of industries,” said Ruba Borno, vice president, Worldwide Channels and Alliances at AWS. “We are honored to launch the inaugural Regional and Global AWS Partner Awards, and thank all the nominees and winners for accelerating our customers’ cloud transformation journey.”
A panel of AWS experts selected the winners based on strict criteria. Sendbird is excited to announce it has received the Rising Star Partner of the Year (ISV) in Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ), which recognizes an AWS Partner that has seen significant YoY growth in its business.
Sendbird is the most proven conversations platform for mobile apps trusted by industry leaders like Reddit, DoorDash, and Paytm. We allow any company to quickly and easily embed rich chat, voice, and video experiences into its app to build relationships with and between their users. With Sendbird, businesses can improve customer engagement and retention quickly with significantly less development effort or risk than if they were to build and maintain a real-time communication platform themselves.
Sendbird’s top global customers include Yahoo! Sports, OLA, Rally Health, Headspace, Teladoc, Accoldate, Carousell, Schibsted, Virgin Mobile UAE, Dream11, Krafton, Nexon, Hinge, ServiceNow and Kookmin Bank.
