collaborative browsing (co-browsing)

Collaborative browsing (also known as co-browsing) is a software-enabled technique that allows someone in an enterprise contact center to interact with a customer by using the customer's Web browser to show them something. For example, a B2B customer having difficulty placing an order could call a customer service representative who could then show the customer how to use the ordering pages as though the customer were using their own mouse and keyboard. Collaborative browsing can include e-mail, fax, regular telephone, and Internet phone contact as part of an interaction. Effectively, collaborative browsing allows a company and a customer to "be on the same page."
