About Cast

Generate videos, slide decks, and podcasts from data for customer facing teams like Customer Success, who need to proactively present frequently to their customers for onboarding customers, product adoption, retention, renewals, up-sells, cross-sells, etc. Plaid, Google, Yelp, Pure Storage, HP, typically can only support 10% of their customer base using Customer Success professionals. The rest get reactive customer support.

In the time they create a presentation for one high-paying customer, they can create videos and slide-decks for all their customers including the thousands from long-tail or lower-account value segment of customers.

We package a virtual presenter with the presentations.

Company Culture

We believe the best way to succeed as a team is to be transparent, have two-way feedback, and promote a culture of innovation that values and rewards risk.

We are driven by first principles, logic, common sense versus formalized policies. We are young, dynamic, and fast moving. And regardless of how big we become we will always value strong ideas versus who they came from.

Here are two quotes that describes us.

“Culture is simply a shared way of doing something with a passion.” – Brian Chesky, Co-Founder, CEO, Airbnb

“Customers will never love a company until the employees love it first.” – Simon Sinek, author, Start with Why
