Squelch empowers customer support and success agents with actionable intelligence at the precise moment of customer interaction, enabling them to provide even more personalized and valuable customer experiences. The information customer-facing agents need to resolve customer issues often already exists within their organization, but these agents are forced to wade through multiple, disparate systems to locate the right insights — a time-consuming and frustrating endeavor for all parties involved. As its name suggests, the Squelch software slices through this “noise” by querying traditionally-disjointed data sets to surface what is needed and filtering out what isn’t.

“Customer-centricity is crucial to reducing customer churn and improving renewals and upsells, and companies now rely more than ever on their customer-facing agents to provide customers with the best experience,” said Jayaram Bhat, CEO and Co-Founder, Squelch. “At Squelch, we believe these customer support and success agents are a company’s heroes, engaging in key customer interactions at a pivotal moment where speed, knowledge, and empathy are essential. We’re thrilled to have our solution recognized for improving the customer experience ecosystem — maximizing productivity, personalizing every interaction, and improving both customer and agent satisfaction.”
