THOMAS HOWE COMPANY NOW IN PARTNERSHIP WITH PROGRAMMABLEWEB
Award-winning consulting firm and application developer shares business communications solutions with ProgrammableWeb's online mashup community
W. BARNSTABLE, Mass., and SEATTLE - Aug. 14, 2007 - The Thomas Howe Company, a leading designer and developer of interactive voice and data solutions for businesses, has been named as a premium content partner for ProgrammableWeb, the leading web site for mashups, APIs (application programming interfaces) and the new "Web as Platform" approach to site development.
As a content partner, The Thomas Howe Company is providing expertise in the form of communications mashups, original articles and other materials that are posted in a new channel of ProgrammableWeb.com under the "Mobile/Telephony" section. The content will focus on telephony and mobile web services, APIs and mashups.
"Thomas Howe and team have an entrepreneur's knack for hunting down business-oriented APIs and an engineer's skill for putting them together," said John Musser, founder of ProgrammableWeb.
Howe was the first-place winner of the recent telephony mashup contest sponsored by O'Reilly Media and data-services provider StrikeIron. His entry, "After Hours Doctor's Office," transcribes office voicemails left by patients for doctors into text and then sends them via SMS to the doctor. A case study of this mashup is one of the items posted in the new section of ProgrammableWeb.
"At The Thomas Howe Company, we're interested in building real-time communications systems that help our clients save money while also increasing the quality of service for their customers," said Howe. "I hope that by sharing the information we have found useful, along with details of our own experiences, it will drive further creative thinking within the growing mashup community."
