Kayako is an India-based company that does chat and communication support for businesses around the world. Varun Shoor established the company in 2001. He formed the company and its first office in Punjab after dropping out of college. Shoor is a programming genius, learning programming when he was 13. Later in life, he started working on Kayako at age 17.

Shoor’s company does a lot of charity work, in addition to supporting open-source software platforms. In 2009, Kayako made cost-free full licenses available for charities. The power of Kayako is also available for free for open-source software companies, making it easier for them to support their users better.

One thing that really struck us about Kayako was that they have never received any type of external funding. The company, without a public offering, has been one of the most profitable companies in the web chat industry.

Kayako is a truly global company. They have offices in India. The company is now officially headquartered in London, reaching out to customers from most economically developed countries.

Kayako has a very large customer portfolio. Their solutions for industries include higher education, technology companies, and health care. Some of their leading customers include Pearson Education, University of Alberta, Sega, and other companies from throughout the world.
