VideoDesk, a NYC-based videochat solutions provider, secured $4.8m in angel and seed funding.
The backers were not named.
The company intends to use the capital for market expansion into the enterprise sector and product development.
Led by Olivier Coste, CEO and Co-Founder, VideoDesk provides a cloud-based video sales support service that enables live video chat, live video product demonstrations, co-browsing and document sharing, for enterprises to engage consumers and personalize the purchase path.
The service, which now supports more than 7,000 e-businesses — allows online customers to visually interact with trained agents who can help guide them through the purchase process by co-browsing the site, demonstrating products, and sharing documentation as needed.
