Our mission

To help companies grow by creating more human connections on their website.

About us

We've spent years building conversational experiences that have been used by hundreds of thousands of people. Dan Spoor previously led the conversational AI strategy at Paychex, and Jason DeVries led the development of a chatbot related startup.

One thing became clear from these experiences, when it comes to sales and marketing, chatbots aren't enough!

Despite their popularity, they will not help you convert visitors into customers and should only be used as a last resort when your team is away or busy.

The best way to convert visitors is by proactively engaging them at the right time, and by using live video to build their trust. We couldn't find a product that fit this need, so we set out to build Hootsy.

We hope you give Hootsy a try and look forward to helping you grow your business!
