Can I use any video call API for my remote support needs instead of Assistbox?
Remote support is the integration of video call technologies into support processes. Leading companies are now offering remote support to provide fast, effortless, and continuous support to their customers and employees. Remote support not only ensures continuous and optimized support but also reduces the need to travel and costs.
The biggest question companies face after deciding to give remote support is how to decide on a provider. There are lots of different options out there for video calling infrastructure. This makes companies think that any video-calling API is enough to give remote support. Unfortunately, that is not the case.
Video calling APIs are developed for interpersonal communication. These applications do not have the competencies for remote support.
What makes Assistbox different than video call APIs?
Many video call APIs have features such as voice calls, video calls, and video conferencing; they also offer chat and file/photo sharing possibilities. You can use video calling APIs for screen sharing or recording your call. They even have the white label option. But these features are not enough to use them as a remote customer service application.
Assistbox is an online communication and support platform developed for institutions to provide visual support to their customers and employees. Our mission is to be the video call solution partner of corporate companies. We know their needs, and their ways of operating and we work accordingly.
