About CrankWheel

CrankWheel is a screen sharing solution built for sales teams. What's unique about CrankWheel is that it will work every time for every prospect without any hassle. No need for your prospect to download or install anything, as they can view using any browser on any device, desktop or mobile.

If you need to let your prospect kick the tires, CrankWheel's built-in Remote Control feature will let the same prospects control your mouse and keyboard without any additional download on their end.

To get leads from your web page or email campaign into a phone call and screen share with one of your salespeople, you can use CrankWheel's built-in Instant Demos lead capture widget, that instantly finds a salesperson to call your prospect, lets them screen share seamlessly into the same browser tab where the prospect requested a call, and can integrate with your CRM (Salesforce and many others).


Key benefits of CrankWheel

  • With CrankWheel, users can confidently share their full screen, a particular browser page, or switch between different pages with encryption, content filtering and an audit log helping to maintain data security.

  • Users can share their screen with customers using a link sent via SMS text message, chat, or email. Alternatively, you can tell them an easy URL based on your company's name instead of having to wait for a URL to be sent.

  • The whole experience can be personalized to match company branding.

  • Via a preview pane, agents can see exactly what their customer sees, know if they are paying attention, and engage them even when there's a network delay.

  • No installation of CrankWheel is required on the client's end, nor is there any need to exchange dial-in codes or run executable files.

  • CrankWheel works over bad connections as well as for prospects on old browsers and obscure devices.

    CrankWheel allows me to view my students' screens, share my own screen, and collaborate with colleagues through the click of a simple button. You can't ask for a more functional chrome extension!

    Pros

    CrankWheel functions easily and I have had no issues implementing it for use in my virtual business. Many of my clients are middle-school aged children who have had no issues using this software!

    Cons

    The user interface is a bit cluttered and often the extension loses track of sign-ins. This is complicated by the requirement for multi-factor authentication to sign in and use it on start up.

    Great. Easy and simple.
    If I had any question I could contact [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]; the response was always prompt!

    Pros

    The easy way to share my screen.
    It is very simple! I do not have to explain a potential customer, how the screen sharing work (and get him nervous even before I got stated do talk about my product :)
    The other person has just to click on the link. Almost every body is able to do that :)

    Cons

    Sometimes (with companies working e.g. with sensitive infrastructure) the link might not get through the firewall (but I guess every other link won't work either).
