Supporting Quotes

  • Dr. E. Brent Kelly, principal analyst and consultant, KelCor
    "CafeX has created a simple software development toolkit that allows programmers to add WebRTC-based voice and video to mobile or web apps —without plugins. Amazon opened the door to live mobile customer service with its 'Mayday' button last year, and CafeX is expanding this trend by providing a platform that can enable live assist capabilities for a wide array of applications and use cases in apps developed for Android, iOS, and soon Windows mobile devices as well as for the four popular browsers: Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari. This kind of omni-channel customer engagement is changing the customer interaction landscape."
  • Kris Hopkins, senior vice president of product management and strategy, CafeX Communications
    "With two lines of code, Fusion Live Assist transforms nearly any web or mobile app into a real-time communication portal. There is no need for users to leave the application, download a plugin or launch a separate communications client. With positive feedback from customers, industry thought leaders and the Best of Enterprise Connect selection committee, Live Assist will engender customer loyalty, deliver personalized interactions and expedite issue resolution online. We are looking forward to an exciting week at Enterprise Connect as we showcase Live Assist. Live Assist will substantially improve the face of customer interactions."
