A chat is worth a thousand emails
Add chat to your website or connect your messaging channels and start talking to customers in minutes. Chat and Message let you help customers in real time, which increases customer satisfaction. And satisfied customers are happier customers.
Let your fingers do the talking
Customers are three times more likely to make a purchase when you proactively send them a message. Using Chat, you can track your customers and engage them at just the right moment.
Send targeted and behavior-based messages to customers. For example, you can help customers complete their purchase by automatically reaching out with a chat.
Chat offers the highest satisfaction rating of any support channel, but there’s always room for improvement. Use chat ratings to gather feedback and continue to improve your performance.
Use pre-chat forms to ask visitors for their contact information before starting a chat, or offline forms to ensure customers can contact you even while you’re away.
“A picture is worth a thousand words.” It’s a cliché, but in customer support it never gets old. Share any file with your customer—a screenshot, a product guide, even an animated GIF—and solve problems faster.
