Know everything that happens in a session across the full web

If an agent is helping a customer fill out a form or sign a document, having a record of who performed what action is crucial for reporting and compliance. Surfly’s Co-browsing comes with detailed audit logs, so you always have full insight into everything that happens in a session. This also includes any actions that take place on 3rd party sites or applications.

This is crucial for highly regulated industries like Insurance or Financial Services.

    Great additional service to our company!

    It is so easy! No one has to download anything for us to connect and the steps needing to make the connection is simple. It has great features that make it easy to show multiple websites and even be able to show documents loaded in my computer. To be able to swap control of the cursor back and forth is also great, so the end user can feel a part of their own enrollment.
