Below is our recent interview with Guillermo Vizcaino, VP of Growth at Askneo:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Askneo is the best keyword texting solution in the market because it helps smalls businesses and startups to create real human experiences in seconds and increase sales through SMS. Askneo is led by Lio Slama, CEO and Cofounder, and it is part of the Techstars, JVP Hub and Columbia Startup Lab ecosystems. No matter where we are, most companies force customers to call, wait on hold, worry about a call back, get transferred 3 times, send countless emails, fill forms, or use an online chat not knowing if we can navigate away from the page. So Lio started Askneo to help businesses simplify their customer service through texting, become more personal and grow into a more friendly brand.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
A: We just announce Askneo’s integration with hundreds of platforms, making it easy to synchronize with most ecosystems such as HubSpot, Shopify, Magento, WooCommerce and many more. You can also download our mobile app to answer customers on the go and close deals in real time.
