Origin & Inspiration
Kapture, formerly known as Adjetter, was co-founded by Garg, Sheshgiri Kamath, and Pearl Tewari in 2011. After receiving positive feedback for the offline automated marketing platform they created in 2011, the founders were inspired to create a standalone software focused solely on improving customer relationships, known today as Kapture CRM with a firm footing in the global SaaS domain.
“There are multiple platforms in the market today which are doing a good job in solving customer support issues. When we started interacting with our clients, we understood that there was a huge gap in customer support and the need of customisations required in the customer facing industry. Moreover, platforms today are very complex to use,” he reminisces.

“This inspired us in pivoting Kapture from a marketing automation platform to a solution which makes customer support simple again. With R&D Kapture became a customer support automation platform which is highly intelligent and contextual and offers delightful customer experiences,” he adds.
“We saw a much positive response from our customers and today Kapture is a preferred choice of 1000+ businesses in 16 countries,” he says proudly.
