What is integration?
Integration - the process of combining two or more things into one.
Companies use different apps and tools every day. These tools and apps were created to support the company’s daily tasks. As much as these are helpful, there can be a lot of time spent switching between interfaces. LiveAgent is a customer service software, which helps your customer service work in one interface. However, even though the staff receives all customer inquiries in one software, they still need to utilize other apps. This is why LiveAgent incorporated integrations and also works with other companies to expand LiveAgent’s capabilities. With integrations, your customer staff can work from one software with all the necessary tools available.
Benefits of integrations:
- Spending less on resources -such as more customer representatives
- Automated work processes
