SAN FRANCISCO – August 5, 2021 – Nylas, provider of communications  APIs for business productivity automation, today announced they have surpassed 100,000 developers worldwide using the Nylas platform. The APIs allow developers to structure and extract rich communications data that can be used to quickly and securely build email, scheduling, and work automation features into their applications. Along with email, calendar, and contacts APIs, the addition of Nylas’ front-end UI/UX Components, AI-powered Neural API, enterprise-grade security, and more, have armed the growing developer community with the modern tools needed to advance innovation and delivery in the rapidly growing API economy.

An increase in market competition and development speed have created pressure on companies to rapidly build differentiated products, workflows, and experiences. As a result, APIs and the API economy have become an integral part of developers’ workflows, enabling them to build solutions quickly, efficiently, and securely. With Nylas’ universal,easy-to-use APIs, developers can unify and extract data from messy communications protocols with ease. The APIs provide structured data needed to tackle business automation workflows like data entry, data extraction, scheduling, business intelligence, and more. With these productivity and intelligence features, the Nylas APIs are the driving force behind more meaningful customer and employee experiences, and business growth. 

“Nylas has always been a developer-first company. We love our developers. Nylas was founded on the idea of arming developers with a comprehensive communications and automation platform to solve complex software challenges and unlock modern innovation,” said Gleb Polyakov, Co-Founder & CEO, Nylas. “We’re incredibly honored to reach the milestone of 100,000 developers on our platform, and are excited to continue investing in tools, experiences, and documentation to support the next 100,000 developers and beyond.”
