Cats usually aren’t so successful at water sports, but we think this time will be an exception.

Surfboard: A simpler, smarter and fairer team planning tool

Klaus: Support quality management with AI & automation

Get in touch

Our partnership reflects our mutual commitment to being the best in our respective domains. We believe that excellent customer service teams are best served by specific tools that aim to excel, rather than a catch-all software that spreads its abilities too thin. 

Benefits of our bundle offering

Both Surfboard and Klaus offer fast onboarding and ROI. Neither the quality assurance nor the scheduling process are ones which can be effectively scaled when done manually. Our products help managers work smarter, not harder.

But enough from us. Over to one of our customers: 

Surfboard has truly benefited the organisation and also the well-being of my team. Now I know what you’re thinking, how can a schedule provide better well being for your employees … Because when you are a start-up, things can feel out of control and having a platform like Surfboard brings structure to my teams day and helps them feel more in control and ready to take on the day ahead – and the lovely playlist feature is a great addition!

As a company, we use Klaus to help us have a top-notch quality assurance programme. This platform is like none other and really fits in with our values and the way we want to treat our customers and employees. Klaus helps us make QA fun and engaging. Their additional features like Coaching for creating quizzes and analytics to track IQS and CSAT keep things clear and all information easily accessible. But not going to lie, my favourite part has got to be the cat puns!
