For better or for worse, your presence on Google matters. Imagine if you could speak to people that were looking at your business on google, all in real time.
That reality is on its way and the wave is just starting. We believe that this new innovation from google that is largely going under the radar at the time of writing is soon going to be something that all businesses want, and that all businesses expect.

What this means, is that potential customers can reach you on chat in real time. You can train a bot to answer customer questions as a first line of defense, and as a second line of defense, you can use our mobile app to answer customer questions in real time.
We can also integrate this with inventory such as google merchant centre, shopify, WordPress, wix, squarespace or our own custom catalogue. Imagine that, shopping via a conversation with your own store to give you customized offerings. That's the future of personalization, and the future is now.

75% Of Consumers Would Rather Message A Business Than Speak To A Person
3.5 Billion Searches On Google Every Day

What's novel today will be commonplace tomorrow. Get a head start and join the revolution today.
