"The advancement of Co-Browsing in the Hype-Cycle confirms our view of the market" said Luc Haldimann, CEO of unblu inc. "unblu´s co-browsing and live engagement solutions are gaining momentum, especially in Financial Services. Many banks are re-designing their online customer experience and now incorporate personal advisor engagement, not only in support scenarios, but increasingly in client advisory and consultation".

Collaborative Customer Interfaces are part of the Gartner "Hype Cycle for CRM Customer Service and Engagement, 2015″. In Gartner´s view the business benefit rating of co-browsing technology is high, making it an obvious priority for coming investment cycles. Gartner equally claims that only few technology alternatives to screensharing exist, making unblu´s secure and no-download technology an obvious choice for compliance centric industries.
