CA Plex/2E Customer Technical Presentations:

1. E-mail and Text Messaging from Plex (On Steroids!), Roger Griffith, Eaglesun Systems Products, and Kiyoshi Terasawa, CM First Group

This session will demonstrate how Eaglesun Systems Products has integrated “Twilio SendGrid/SMS API” into their Plex application to deliver cutting edge e-mail and text messaging solutions using Plex. Most Plex applications can send e-mail messages, but how many applications can track the status (Sent, Delivered, Opened, Clicked, etc.) of the e-mail once it has been sent? By using a third-party messaging platform (in this case Twilio), Eaglesun Systems Products was able to develop a cutting edge E-Mail/Text Messaging solutions using Plex.
