Redpen is designed for customer service and development teams to capture actionable support requests and bugs in 60 seconds! It makes customer support issues, feature request and bugs easier to report. Redpen enriches context associated reported issues allowing organization to increase feature velocity, grow customer satisfaction and reduce development or support cost.
Redpen is designed to be used easy and intuitive to use, so all users technical and non-can quickly figure out how to use it. Redpen can be integrated into your applications to gather feedback from end users or used by your development, design, testing or other team when deployed within the organization.
Most ticketing tools capture the customer reported issue, but fail to capture the context in which the issue was discovered - the operating system, browser, application logs, device information and more. Gathering this information requires back-and-forth communication between the reporter of the issue and the team trying to resolve the issue. Redpen eliminates the back and forth communication combining user input with automatically collected information including user, device and application context. Redpen is all-in-one feedback and bug reporting tool that can combine text input, static images, screen recording, and the ability to annotate screenshots and videos.
Redpen can be used with any applications including cloud applications, SaaS, desktop applications, web applications and device native applications.
