End-to-end ownership of technical customer support,
substance engineering and streamlined release processes

Client Overview

A fortune 500 company specializing in Connected Home and Security products like Smoke alarms and CO Sensors.

Business Challenge

The client currently uses both B2B and B2C channels to sell their products in the market. Given the products deal with Security (Smoke and CO), its highly imperative that any support needs of end-clients are addressed and resolved in a timely manner. Lack of streamlined process for roll-out of fixes and debugging end-customer problems was affecting performance of the product and hence customer feedback. This directly hampered the star rating that their products receive which ultimately impacts their sales volume.

Also, there being one common mobile application for multiple products, it was critical to identify issue in one product and fix it without hampering other product support. Further to this, they also required support to re-engineer existing features and developing new ones for the launched products.
