Use Case

Co-browsing for remote sales

The problem

Abandoned carts

In a digital economy, remote or online sales have become the norm rather than the exception, with most consumers (59%) preferring the convenience of an online purchase. There is an obvious appeal to being able to purchase from the comfort of your home, but the benefits of a self-service environment are only realized if the process is frictionless.

Online purchasing is supposed to be a simple process. If complexity or uncertainty is introduced at any stage, digital customers are quick to abandon the process (70% of online shopping baskets are abandoned before purchase) and seek an alternative. With a wide choice of purchasing options available to customers, a single bad experience could turn a potentially loyal customer into a lifetime detractor.

Remote guidance

Co-browsing is the ideal way to reintroduce a personalized experience to remote sales. The real-time guidance and collaborative experience that co-browsing provides has a positive impact on customer engagement, enables immediate problem solving and can facilitate up-sell and cross sell opportunities.
