The birth of a new platform for PLG companies

Rome wasn’t built in a day. Creation takes time. But it also takes energy, vision, and sometimes conflict, sacrifices, and constant experiments every step of the way.

Rome wasn’t built in a day. Creation takes time. But it also takes energy, vision, and sometimes conflict, sacrifices, and constant experiments every step of the way. In this process of building brick by brick, it is often the milestones that help us pull back and reflect on how far we have come and how much farther we have to go.

Today is one of those milestones.

Today we are announcing the General Availability of DevRev, the world’s first DevCRM. In addition, we are also announcing the first app on the platform: product-led support aimed at a new breed of product-led companies looking to support their customers with code, and automation and looking to bring their customers and customer support engineers closer to their developers.

Product-led support#

A new breed of companies is leading the way in supporting their customers by tying customer interactions with product features and creating bespoke workflows that smartly detect issues even before users are aware of them and proactively fix them. This requires stitching systems like live chat widgets, customer identity, a support ticketing system, and a backend work management tool like Jira.

With DevRev’s product-led support, companies can now connect customer conversations with a ticketing and Knowledge-based platform with an integrated issues management workflow connected to the product features. All of this with real-time multiplayer collaboration and connections to other apps that companies currently use like Jira, Slack, and GitHub.

Let’s take a look
