About Us

Consider how often you use a smartphone or tablet. We've all had the experience of banking, or shopping, or filing an insurance claim on a mobile device. But say you're on your phone and you find a fraudulent charge in your bank account, or you have trouble completing a purchase and need to contact someone for support. Right now, in most apps, your only options are to leave the app and call an 800 number, send email feedback, or actually go into the store or branch.

These support solutions were NOT designed for mobile.

Companies are investing millions of dollars in their mobile-first initiatives, and yet they still rely on outdated, ineffective, low-tech channels to communicate with with their mobile customers.

Customer support has been left behind with yesterday's technology.

The current system is broken. We're here to fix it.


Leadership Team

We are leading experts in telephony/VoIP technologies, with the startup and business experience to transform mobile communication.

Our technology was developed by the same engineers that built TeleSign, which protects 8 of the top 10 largest Internet properties against fraud. The technology behind ShowKit was originally incubated at Curious Minds to meet the needs of several internal projects, including for a company called Ringadoc. We realized that our solution could help fill a significant communication gap in all mobile apps, so we launched ShowKit to share our technology with other companies and developers.
