BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Dec. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Samesurf, Inc., a leading global provider of real-time visual collaboration technology for sales, support and collaboration, announces the issuance by the USPTO of five patents relating to co-browsing and synchronized browsing of online content: (1) US Patent No. 8,527,591; (2) US Patent No. 9,171,087; (3) US Patent No. 9,185,145; (4) US Patent No. 9,483,448; and (5) US Patent No. 9,489,353. Samesurf's expanding patent portfolio grants it certain exclusive rights as the inventor of modern co-browsing technology that supports synchronized browsing of virtually all forms of content by two or more remote users from any computer, tablet or mobile device.
Established in 2009, Samesurf developed its co-browsing technology to empower multiple people to instantly browse and interact with the same content together in real-time from virtually anywhere without install or coding requirements. In recent years, co-browsing has become widely used for (1) call centers to provide visual assistance on customer support interactions that emanate via live chat, phone support and other channels; (2) enabling real-time viewing, training, on-boarding and remote collaboration; and (3) serving as a compelling alternative to the antiquated process of screen sharing that requires installs, carries latency and proves ineffective on mobile devices.
"These patents continue to reassure Samesurf's clients and partners that our intellectual property gives them a competitive advantage and the confidence that the co-browsing solutions they are integrating into their business processes are of such a unique nature that they warrant the legal protection afforded by the secured exclusivity of five U.S. patents," says K. David Pirnazar, CEO and Co-Founder of Samesurf. "Samesurf was founded upon a concentrated focus on inventing fast, seamless and fully interactive co-browsing experiences. Given the strength of our patent portfolio, we're pleased to witness the expanding prevalence of co-browsing within the business world and beyond."
Samesurf is a real-time collaboration platform that couples its advanced co-browsing technology with complementary features such as conference calling and session recording. Founded by CEO K. David Pirnazar and Sapient Co-Founder Jerry A. Greenberg, its clients and partners include several companies in the Fortune 1000, market leaders like Sapient and Docusign and a slew of innovative start-ups. Samesurf's investors include Omninet Capital - a venture capital firm established by co-founders of Qualcomm.
