Co-browsing Software: eGain Cobrowse™

What Analysts Say About eGain Solutions

Co-browsing: The Need

Wouldn’t it be great if an agent was able to chat or talk to your customer on the phone as the customer was browsing your website? The agent could then help the digital customer shop, resolve problems, fill an online form, or perform other transactions. Cobrowsing software is a business’ answer to exactly that need.

eGain Cobrowse™: True co-browsing software for digital customer support

eGain Cobrowse offers true cobrowsing, not just screen-sharing or proxy-server-based technologies.

The unique cobrowse software enables your customer service and contact center agents to offer, in the most human way possible, the digital support online customers need. It allows agents to provide high-value, collaborative, realtime support. By offering assistance exactly at the time of need, your business can convert website visitors—customers and prospects—into profitable, long-term customers.

eGain Cobrowse is designed to provide smooth co-browsing experiences even on complex websites.


  • Allows phone and chat agents to provide a richer, multimedia experience by conducting a simultaneous cobrowse session.

Easy and secure

  • Enables the agent and the customer to fill out forms together, field by field, even highlighting specific areas of a form or web page for clarity.
  • Allows business rules to be created for specific web pages. For example, a business rule can be written to restrict agents from submitting forms or viewing sensitive information in certain form fields.

Easy to manage

  • Can be set up to allow cobrowsing sessions only in specific sections of the website.
  • Offers configurations to enforce company and regulatory policies.

  • Businesses can configure fine-grained cobrowsing rules to disable read or edit access for agents to specific fields within web pages and web forms to ensure client privacy and process compliance
