Toronto-based CrowdCare raises an additional $1 million, launches Wysdom app for immediate tech support

Toronto-based CrowdCare aims to take the confusion out of your smartphone. The company has announced today that they’ve successfully raised an additional $1 million, which now brings the total to $3 million, led by Mantella Venture Partners.

CrowdCare, originally founded in 2012 by entrepreneurs Ian Collins and Jeff Brunet, has released the beta version its Wysdom mobile app for Android. This brings immediate smartphone support to the forefront. Usually when we have a technical question or issue, most people do a quick search online (possibly gain inaccurate information) or call customer support, but Wysdom desires to one-day eliminate “the need to search online or call service providers.”

The company notes that Wysdom is “the world’s first codified knowledge base” that delivers answers to the questions its subscribers have about their smartphones. CrowdCare states that their answer database is growing daily and “fills that void and provides real time, accurate answers to customers’ questions – right on their smartphone.” Wysdom uses some unknown patent pending technology that gathers over 1,000 parameters and taps into your smartphone to deliver the answer to your question.

“Seeking simple answers to questions about your smartphone is now easier than ever before,” says Ian Collins, CEO of CrowdCare. “We’re working with mobile operators around the world to launch a white labelled version of the CrowdCare service so their subscribers have somewhere to get quick, accurate answers, anytime, any place.”

The app is free to download and will eventually find a home on Apple’s iOS in “the coming months.”
