EnvoyWorldWide's new SOAP-enabled API adds on to its XML-based API to deliver on a Web services strategy and enable users to conduct transaction business both online or offline, or with wireless and wired devices.

EnvoyWorldWide Inc., a real-time notification service provider, on Monday announced a Simple Object Access Protocol API to support Web services. The new SOAP-enabled API adds on to EnvoyWorldWides XML-based API to deliver on a Web services strategy and enable users to conduct transaction business both online or offline, or with wireless and wired devices.
The company said EnvoyWorldWides SOAP- and XML-based Web services are designed to help users integrate EnvoyWorldWides real-time message delivery engine into their applications.
EnvoyWorldWide, in Bedford, Mass., is rolling out its new capability with Corporate Communications Broadcast Network Inc., in Boston. CCBN provides Internet-based shareholder communications. CCBN will use the EnvoyWorldWide real-time message delivery technology to better serve its customers and to provide a channel where investors can register for corporate information from a companys Web site, the company said. Member data gets transmitted through a SOAP API to the EnvoyXpress engine for multimodal distribution. CCBNs deployment of EnvoyWorldWides SOAP and Web Services Description Language offering is expected to go live July 5 and into a full client rollout in August, the company said.
Meanwhile, EnvoyWorldWide launched a beta program for companies with Web services initiatives under way. The program is targeted at companies looking to develop inter-enterprise applications based on XML and SOAP, the company said.
