Have you ever had a customer who was frustrated because your agent was unaware of the previous conversation?
Well, this happens more often than you think.
LiveAgent is a customer service software solution for any company that is looking to improve its daily customer support activities. Thus, it helps you process customer inquiries from multiple-channels in a time-efficient way. It is basically everything under one roof. All the information you need is right inside the ticket/ chat conversation.
What is Chat history?
Chat history is one of many features of LiveAgent. It can be referred to as a chat log or conversation history of previous communication with customers.
It is pretty self-explanatory, and it can be extremely useful in various scenarios. You can use it to check; previous customer inquiries, check for data and information, search for previous solutions to an issue. The limit is only in your creativity.
How can Chat history improve your customer service?
We’ve probably all have been there. Explaining the previous issue to the new customer representative. Do you remember how frustrating it was? Customer satisfaction decreases the longer your customer has to explain the issue. Overall this creates pretty stressful and unnecessary heated chat conversations. To prevent this, LiveAgent has created a customer conversation history feature where you can easily search chats.
What can you see in Chat history?
- Name of visitor
- Name of Agent
- Visitor’s country
Let’s say that Wendy wants to ask a live chat agent about an issue she experienced a month ago. It was solved, but it happened again. The live chat agent can have a quick look at the previous chat conversation. As a result, see what the solution was and why it wasn’t permanent. With this information at their disposal, the agent can suggest a different approach. Or on the other hand, explain what needs to be done differently. Therefore, this issue won’t occur in the future.
- Fast ticket resolution
- Improved customer satisfaction
- Better CX
- Smooth customer service workflow
