Sometimes your customers need help when they are browsing your website. Maybe they can’t tell exactly where to click—or perhaps they need help filling out a complex form. Genesys Co-browse lets your agents use Agent Desktop to do some of the driving for them, by showing them what the customer sees in their browser window (not the whole screen) and allowing the customer to give them control of the web page.
Here are some of the main features of Genesys Co-browse:
- Provides the ability for an agent and the customer to browse and navigate the same web page at the same time.
- Active participation—both the agent and the customer have the ability to take control.
- Browsing always happens on the customer side.
- Pointer Mode and Write Mode—Co-browse sessions begin in Pointer Mode where the agent cannot enter information or navigate for the customer. The agent may send the customer a request to enter Write Mode where the agent can enter information for the customer. The customer must agree to enter Write Mode.
- DOM restrictions—hide sensitive data from agents and restrict control of elements (buttons, check boxes, and so on) in a co-browse session. Genesys Professional Services currently configures the DOM restrictions for you.
You can find some more details about Co-browse sessions here.
There are a few steps to take in order to get up and running with Genesys Co-browse. Genesys enables Co-browse for you, but you will need to install and configure Genesys Widgets. Here are the details:
