Pre Streem Call Availability
There are a few items to confirm with your customer before starting a Streem call.
- Safety first. Please remind the customer to be aware of their environment and look away from their smartphone when they are walking.
- Confirm the customer is able to safely access the product and/or space the Streem call will be addressing.
- Customers may be calling from their car or someone in their household may be utilizing the space. There are many reasons a customer may not be ready to engage in a Streem call so it is important to get this confirmation first.
- Verify that the customer is/will be using a smartphone or tablet and recommend they connect to wifi. Please note that smartphone audio and video settings are key to a seamless experience.
Please see the Streem Troubleshooting Guide for more recommended customer phone/tablet settings.
