Co-browsing in Session Replay Software

The best support feels personalized, immediate, and interactive—like a guiding hand that’s there at every step, exactly when it’s needed. Consider if that same hand could also welcome new users, navigate them through your application’s features and functions, ensuring a smooth and engaging onboarding process.

Think of this dual experience as something you can offer your users. Be by their side to help them walk through any issues within your application or onboard them effectively. This approach lets you directly understand their needs and preferences, quickly resolve any issues, and ensure they’re getting the most out of your product from day one.

With OpenReplay’s co-browsing feature, you can provide this level of personalized assistance and real-time engagement for both customer support and user onboarding.
