Video chat

Why should you use a video chat?

Video live chat software enables you to get more personal with your customers. It can be especially useful during the times when your customers need to show you something directly so your customer service/support can provide better help.

For instance, if the customer has software issues, your customer support can simply ask the customer to share their screen. Therefore, your agents can have a direct look and solve their problems quickly and effectively.
