Liberty Global selects location platform leader Glympse

We are so proud to announce that Liberty Global, the world’s largest international TV and broadband company, is working with us here at Glympse to transform how their Virgin Media customers receive important appointment details, including updates on the location and anticipated time of arrival of their technician. Using Glympse’s location technology, Liberty Global provides their customers with real-time updates on their smartphone, tablet or computer starting a day before their scheduled appointment and continuing right up until the moment the technician arrives.

It’s great for us to see leading companies utilizing our powerful and engaging platform to produce customer-facing experiences for their customers. Companies like Liberty Global, Sky, Rogers, Charter and Verizon, as well as many others, provide appointment updates, real-time location and an estimated time of arrival for each phase of the appointment life cycle.

What does this mean for their customers? That they will receive the most up-to-date information about their appointment in a convenient and easy-to-use way, eliminating the pain of waiting but not knowing when a technician will arrive.
