Now more than ever, live chat is the channel of choice for communications between organizations and the customers they serve. In fact, over half of all customers prefer live chat to calling a company for support. With the ability to engage prospects and customers in real-time, live chat has become a must-have addition to a company’s customer experience strategy.
When rolled out correctly, live chat can be a powerful customer engagement tool. But how do you find a live chat solution that will scale to fit both your customer and business needs?
Cue Comm100. With Comm100 Live Chat you can:
Give Expert Answers in Real time
Your customers want expert answers to their queries in real-time. While most call center communication tools support transfers between departments, and between agents, being passed around from agent to agent can be infuriating. Even with interactive voice response (IVR) as a screening tool, customers may not know which bucket their query fits in and might still need to be transferred for their issue to be resolved.
Comm100 Live Chat’s robust routing capabilities easily overcome these challenges. As a visitor initiates a chat, they’re routed manually or automatically according to custom criteria as defined by your business.
Pre-chat surveys enable visitors to choose where their chat is routed from a predefined list of departments. Alternatively instead of relying on the visitor to manually choose a department, Comm100 routing capabilities can take care of heavy lifting.
Custom criteria are defined from either high level factors, like country and time zone, or can be more granular, like current page URL. Depending on the parent criteria, more conditions can be added, and then structured according to a hierarchy. High value chats defined by custom criteria will be distributed according to priority levels.
When visitors get quality, detailed answers on their first try, it builds long-term brand loyalty amongst customers. This First Call Resolution (FCR) provides big benefits for your business in terms of agency efficiency, increased top-line revenue, and customer retention.

This 360-degree view of the entire customer life cycle makes it easy to send targeted, highly personalized messages to your prospects and customers, while taking the manual work out of the equation. Each customer touchpoint is automatically logged in Salesforce, freeing up agents to deliver top-tier support.
When a chat is initiated, Comm100 can automatically detect whether the visitor is already in your Salesforce database. By identifying your returning customers, or “regulars”, your agents will provide more personalized service while also delivering more targeted follow-ups. With these personalized engagements at key stages of the customer journey, you can be there at just the right time and place to increase conversions and customer retention.
