Is Live Chat Support Is Right For Your Company?

If you have a company with an online presence that provides significant information to its customers, the chances are pretty good you could use some level of web chat. Whether it’s live chat support agents or chatbots, this technology can greatly benefit companies as a means to support sales and customer service. The following are three reasons companies should use chat support in their contact centers: 

1) In the past, customers preferred calling companies directly for their questions, and a large number of them still do. However, there is a rising amount of people who prefer self-service to do research or resolve their issues with products and services. These customers would rather avoid calling a company if at all possible, so they would be served more optimally by multichannel contact center solutions such as social media, chat, and email support. 

2) Chatbots and live chat support agents provide customers with instant service. Immediate service can greatly reduce shopping cart abandonment and help strengthen customer loyalty by being there for them whenever they need you.

3) Chat support agents and chatbots can proactively and reactively provide recommendations to customers for products and services based on their past purchase history. This strategic use of live chat agents and chatbots for up-selling and cross-selling can greatly help companies increase their overall sales conversions to increase revenue and positively impact their bottom line.
