By including a  no-download StreemCore video call in the first customer contact, American Home Shield contractors can remotely see the key project details with the full context of an on-site visit.

Remote repair specialists use interactive tools to visually guide customers to diagnose or  troubleshoot the issue. StreemShot® photographs help contractors digitally document the ticket and can be easily shared to ensure the whole team can see and understand the project. 

Additionally StreemVision™ text scanning allows experts to automatically “read” and copy make, model and serial numbers from appliance product plates.

With the full call video, StreemShot photos, and call notes recorded in a single-page record, teams can easily share project details, attach them to work orders, and review them before traveling on-site—saving time, travel, and hassle.

With a few simple steps using Streem’s customer-friendly web tools, AHS contractors are seeing impressive results.
