Online chat

What is online chat?

Everything started with Talkomatic – the first online chat system in the world, which offered just several channels. Nowadays, we have plenty of online chat programs, which offer many functions and features. These programs allow people to communicate in real-time with others through the Internet. This communication is also called online chat. Using Viber and similar apps have become an inseparable part of customer communication for modern companies.

Online communication has also some basic rules. Chatiquette, also known as chat etiquette, was created in order to avoid misunderstandings or conflicts.

Using online chat prevents things like phone tag from happening, which not only saves time but can also have a tremendous impact on customer experience.
