A chat is worth a thousand emails

Add chat to your website or connect your messaging channels and start talking to customers in minutes. Chat lets you help customers in real time, which increases customer satisfaction. And satisfied customers are happier customers.


Let your fingers do the talking

Customers are three times more likely to make a purchase when you proactively send them a message. Whether you are in Support or Sales, you can use Chat to track your customers and engage them at just the right moment.


Send targeted and behaviour-based messages to customers. For example, you can help customers complete their purchase by automatically reaching out with a chat.

Pre-chat & offline forms

Use pre-chat forms to ask visitors for their contact information before starting a chat, or offline forms to ensure customers can contact you even while you’re away.

Visitor list

Fishing charter company Fishfishme uses Chat to monitor its website visitors and the pages they are browsing. This lets them target specific users and offer help when they need it.

Chat ratings

Chat offers the highest satisfaction rating of any support channel, but there’s always room for improvement. Use chat ratings to gather feedback and continue to improve your performance.

File sending

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” It’s a cliché, but in customer support it never gets old. Share any file with your customer—a screenshot, a product guide, even an animated GIF—and solve problems faster.


Integrate AI-powered bots into Chat using our API. Learn more about how to automate simple, time-consuming tasks and lend your agents a helping hand.
