The team was involved in deploying 50+mn devices and 10+mn managed nodes with every known CE brand and all Tier 1 telecom operators across the globe.

When contact centers and service organizations add Bruviti to their existing support infrastructure, they can take advantage of AI-enhanced self-service and remote repair to solve two key objectives:

  1. Deliver high customer experience ratings by diagnosing problems quickly and fixing them right the first time —onsite or remotely.
  2. Reduce call center, technician, truck-roll, and warranty costs.
