Start engaging in real-time, right from your helpdesk!

No matter how hard you try to make it personal, email support can only go so far in showing customers that you care about them. Not to mention if you don’t pay enough attention, one forgotten reply to an email could leave one of your biggest customers frustrated. If only there was a way for you to switch between email and chat, and respond to your customers without losing track...

Freshdesk’s integrated live-chat solution lets you make customers happy in real-time, build meaningful relationships and give them prompt, concise answers when they need them the most. You can also engage website visitors proactively, and get the conversation going even before they say a word. The best part is, the live chat solution works seamlessly with your helpdesk - no set-up or integration required.

Automatically route chats and transfer to the right agents

Streamline your chat process and make it more efficient by automatically routing chats to the right division in your team. Looking to go one step further? Add a pre-chat form to your chat widget to trigger workflow automations based on information from the customer. This way, you save them a world of hassle and also get your tickets organized properly in your helpdesk. 

While you are in conversation, if you need help with a specific kind of issue, you can transfer chats manually to another agent in your team. You can also simultaneously consult with the other experts in your team by having a private agent-to-agent chat.
