Speaking over the phone with customer support regarding software issues can make troubleshooting excruciatingly difficult and it can take ALOT longer than face-to-face interactions. When getting assistance over the phone, no matter whether you simply don’t know how to use certain features of the software or there are technical glitches you’re stuck trying to explain what you see on your screen while the support agent is stuck guessing as to what you’re actually looking at and the actual problem your having.
This situation is exactly why Glance Intuit was created and where the screen sharing application comes in handy, saving people time by making the process visual and helping users get quicker resolutions. Glance Intuit makes it as if the agent were there with you in person.
Glance Intuit allows QuickBooks Online and Intuit ProConnect users to remotely share their screen with an Intuit agent, making the customer service experience much better. The agent can see what you see on your screen and even take over to show you how to do complete the task at hand or how to use the feature you’re struggling with.
