The Click With Me Now Story
Click With Me Now was created out of this marketplace deficiency: the need for people in different places to share a single web experience.
In 2010, while launching an online-only Seniors Health Insurance plan, Click With Me Now Founders Brian Handrigan and Mark Comiso observed that benefit review and purchase coordination between senior citizens and their adult children proved a major hurdle to both parties.
There was simply no easy way for the two groups to efficiently communicate online in a timely and effective fashion.
Brian and Mark saw an unmet need and Click With Me Now was born.
Soon thereafter, the third founding partner – Mike Behr – was brought on board, bringing a wealth of retail and consumer experience expertise to enhance Click With Me Now’s value proposition for e-commerce targets. Between the three of them – they have collectively built 19 companies to date.
