From the active Baby Boomer to care-assisted elderly, Marvee is the recognized leader in helping brands and organizations craft successful voice experiences to meet the wants and needs of the 50+ population.
  • ChatFortress, which provides the tools to eliminate wire-transfer fraud and the risk of getting hit by email phishing attacks. ChatFortress helps consumers and businesses achieve this by providing a Secure Chat “Selfie-Login” communication channel. The ChatFortress Email Guardian helps defend your email inbox from email phishing, email impersonation and email malware attacks using its Virtual Security Analyst.
