The app measures different things like bandwidth and router configurations. In an intelligent dialog customers answer questions to evaluate the situation and get easy-to-understand guidance. Only if the problem persists even after this process, the customer support department of the telecommunication company gets involved. This shall reduce the volume of calling customers drastically.
“We are very happy about the double-recognition. This is a good sign and shows, that we are on the right track with our product and business model”, says Dr. Michael Faath, one of the two CEOs of Conntac.
