Leviton Introduces Salesforce Visual Remote Assistant

The new software tool is said to enable real-time, interactive and visual engagement with Leviton technical service representatives.

MELVILLE, N.Y. — Leviton announces enhancements to its technical support capabilities with the introduction of the Salesforce Visual Remote Assistant. The software tool allows builders, contractors and homeowners to connect with Leviton technical service representatives via video directly from their mobile device.

With the Salesforce Visual Remote Assistant, Leviton can help customers troubleshoot and resolve issues faster so that they can quickly get back to their jobs, according to the announcement. The software allows technicians, installers or homeowners to transmit live video and images of technical issues from the field while consulting with a remote expert. The tool benefits builders and electricians by improving first-time resolution rates, cutting operational costs and reducing training time.

“Our new Salesforce Visual Remote Assistant tool offers our customers a unique, innovative and user-friendly customer service experience. With visual access to enhance troubleshooting and diagnoses, our technical service team is even better equipped to guide customers quickly and clearly through the process of resolving issues. This is particularly helpful with the installation, set-up and use of more technically advanced products,” says Brian Avery, senior manager, technical services, Leviton.

The Salesforce Visual Remote Assistant operates as a visual connection between the remote Leviton technical service representative and the customer. By visually observing the issue, the service representative can understand the customer’s problem and expedite a solution by walking the customer through the answer to their question. Once the job is successfully completed, the technical service representative can view the results and confirm that the issue has been resolved.

The tool does not require users to download an app. When visual assistance is needed, customers are sent a text message or email to their smart device containing a secure link that will directly connect them to a member of the Leviton technical service team. For privacy and security, the link is a one-time use code which expires following the completion of the support session.

“In addition to our 24/7 online Support Center, mobile app and Live support options, the Salesforce Visual Remote Assistant offers unique visual support leading to a better customer experience for the builder, contractor and end-user community,” says Greg Rhoades, director of marketing, smart and new technology products, Leviton. “This is particularly helpful in new home construction where newer, less familiar products may be installed and when new homeowners may have questions regarding the use and functionality of their new electrical devices.”

Leviton customer support offers a wide range of resources including on-demand step-by-step installation and product programming videos, instruction sheets, knowledge base articles, FAQ’s and more.
