Group Agents into Departments

You can easily add agents to departments based on their skills so that agents can focus on what they do best. This improves chat efficiency and customer satisfaction. The Comm100 Live Chat Department feature can also greatly reduce training costs for businesses while improving professionalism.

“Departments are set up in the backend and chats can be easily routed to specific departments for targeted communication.”
