How did we get started?
One afternoon, our founder George was having a conversation with the CEO of a fast-growing company, about a new offering they had launched. It was selling very well, but they kept getting technical support requests that they couldn’t easily resolve through email, chat or phone.
It reminded George about the frustrations he had when providing tech support over the phone for his mom. Instead of having her verbally describe the problem, George would have her use video chat on their phones to show him the problem. George suggested the CEO do the same with his customers. But the CEO said it doesn’t look professional using a consumer video chat app and more importantly, for compliance, his company needed to keep a recording of the video.
George suggested he could build a service that would enable a support agent to request access to a customer’s smartphone camera – without the use of an app – and to have everything integrated with the help desk system that the CEO’s company was using. The CEO got excited and agreed to use the service when it became available.
George spent the next two months developing a working prototype then presented it to the CEO and his customer support team. Upon seeing the demo, a support agent raised his hand and asked, “Can we have this today?” George realized that there was still a lot of room for improving the customer support experience and started on a mission to make remote support better than in-person support. And thus, Viewabo was born.
