Helping businesses benefit from video calls
The online world needs to get personal
The internet is a fantastic place for businesses to thrive, with a global reach we could have only dreamt of 30 years ago. But the personal touch is being lost as customer and user communication with businesses is reduced to email or so-called live text chat - often not with a human but with a semi-automated robot.
Live interactive video is rightly being heralded as a tool that will bring back face to face connections and make the online world human. And Clickacall has a vision for how this can be done.
Clickacall is a new way of helping sales leads, customers, website visitors and other users contact a business with a one-click video or voice call directly from a website, email, sms or social post and using any device. It's easy to use, provides full tracking of callers and is affordable to businesses of all sizes with a simple pay as you go model. Integration is as simple as copying and pasting a unique short URL into a website, email, etc.
Existing video solutions
To date, live interactive video solutions either require user signups, new app installations or software downloads. Or they have a need for users and businesses to pre-arrange and schedule video meetings or conferences or book special video rooms. Many rely on all parties going to the video-provider's own website, which can interrupt their current workflow.
Existing video solutions often charge businesses a monthly fee for each member of staff requiring access, which can cause costs to very quickly build up. Businesses can effectively be over-charged when on a monthly fee, especially if the number of video-minutes each staff member makes each month is relatively small.
Simple click to call video is next to rocket
Clickacall has spotted a gap in the video industry and will provide a fresh approach to live interactive video. Any business, big or small, should be able to add a simple one-click button or link to their website, emails, sms or social posts, allowing customers, visitors and other online users to talk face to face with the business using live video.
A simplified pricing model that charges no monthly or recurring fees and only charges a low cost per-minute of video or voice calls actually made. We also believe that any pre-paid video minutes purchases by a business should be available for all their staff across the company. We charge no extra fees for additional staff and the business can create unlimited groupings of staff to handle incoming calls, again with no extra fees.
Founded by tech entrepreneur Steve Procter, Clickacall launched in May 2019 and is applying a tried and tested business startup formula that takes seemingly complex technology and provides a new, refreshing and easily-affordable approach for use by all.
Clickacall has a winning formula
As a successful venture technologist with 30 years IT and business experience, Steve Procter, Clickacall's founder is set to re-awaken the live interactive video market, using a tried and tested tech-business startup process....
In 1999 Steve created Easily, one of the first domain name registration companies and with the first easy to use DNS management dashboard. It sparked mass market appeal and slashed the going rate for domain names. Recognising an internet technology that was restricted to a handful of players, Easily was a rare dotcom era success in the UK.
This approach was repeated in 2001 by taking complex bulk text messaging technology, making the price accessible and wrapping it in one of the first affordable SMS marketing dashboards for use by any high street business.
More recently in 2018 Nearevo was created. This new startup simplifies the process for small & large businesses to turn their physical world into an internet of things using previously complex proximity discovery & marketing technology.
And now for Clickacall...
