5 Reasons Why Chat Software is Essential for your Website

If you are wanting to provide the best customer service possible but keep costs to a minimum, then installing chat software is a must.

Yes, a few years ago, chat software was frowned upon. It was slow, badly set up and frustrating to use. However, technology has advanced really quickly in this area and the combination of a live chat for business with bots has become a valuable asset to any company advertising their business online. We highly recommend adding chat software to your web design package to connect and talk to your customers and below are five reasons why.

Customer Convenience

As a support channel, most customers prefer online interaction to answer questions or resolve issues and find it less stressful than speaking on the phone to a stranger.

It also allows customers to interact with a support agent online whilst continuing to multitask.

Increased Response Times

With the average customer response time for email being over 10 hours, it is not surprising that customers prefer the practicality of real-time interaction.

Quick response to customer requests reduces the risk of them visiting your competitors.

Drives sales as well as service

Whilst chat software is predominantly thought of as a support channel if the customer has a positive experience it can also be used as an effective sales tool too.

More efficient first-contact resolution frees up time for upselling.

Builds trust in your brand

Providing different support channels gives customers more choices and makes them feel that you are more responsive and available to their needs.

A customer who has a positive support experience could be a great brand advocate.

24/7 Customer Support with AI Chatbots

Most businesses cannot afford to have customer service agents manage their phones 24/7.

Live chat for business software with AI chatbots can be used around the clock to provide the first line of support to engage with customers and direct them automatically to the information they want.
