The Verse.io Story

We identified and fixed the missing link in the sales and marketing cycle. Now, after more than a million conversations, we’ve perfected that solution.

Since its beginning in 2013, Verse.io (formerly known as Agentology) has been committed to the belief that connection matters. Brothers, serial entrepreneurs and co-founders David and Avi Tal wanted to bring the human touch back to an industry that was becoming increasingly impersonal, overwhelmed with volume and plagued by poor follow-up processes.

Without a solid process for lead engagement, businesses were forced to invest considerable time and money chasing leads, letting them slip through the cracks, or pursuing inauthentic solutions that proved suboptimal.

Enter Verse.io – first making a splash in the Real Estate and Mortgage industries before re-branding as Verse.io in November, 2019 and exploding into new marketplaces across the United States. Verse is the pioneer for lead qualification, powered by real people and adaptive tech. Save more time. Close more deals. Create a better experience for both leads and sales.

At our core, we wanted to create a platform that validated marketing efforts, while finally positioning sales teams for success by connecting them with truly qualified leads. As we continued to refine our product and the efficiency of our team, we engineered a system that could truly evolve and deliver conversational engagement at scale. So, after creating success for hundreds of agents and teams, we came to understand that lead engagement is a problem affecting ALL sales and marketing teams, not just those in real estate.

Now, in our ongoing commitment to growth and innovation, the we’ve have assembled an outstanding and ever-improving team of veterans & visionaries driven to bringing Verse.io to the world! We invite you to connect or come visit, and we would love to play a role in helping to write your next verse.
