Hello everyone! Trying to keep up the pace, we have another integration for you. And this one will also amp up your Customer Service. Say hello to our brand-new integration with LiveChat, the best live chat software that's about to take your Customer Support to the next level.

Let's break it down and discover the benefits this LiveChat integration brings to your support game!

What is LiveChat?

LiveChat is a complete customer service platform that delights your customers and fuels your sales. And why do we think that it's the best one? Because it starts with a chat, and then it just keeps getting better. It is not only a real-time chatting tool for customers on your website. It is also a place where you can create a communication hub capable of gathering messages from multiple channels – channels like:

  • Apple Messages for Business;
  • Messenger from Meta;
  • WhatsApp Business;
  • Email;
  • SMS.

What's more, with over 200 integrations and AI-based ChatBots, LiveChat gives you multiple options to create or improve your Customer Support and maintain it 24/7. And now you can integrate it seamlessly with OpenWidget.


So, what benefits will you get?

πŸš€ Real-Time Chat That Fits Your Customer's Schedule

With LiveChat on board, your customers can kick off a chat and gracefully exit your website without putting their plans on hold just to wait for your reply. Plus, once they get your response, it conveniently lands in their email, ready for a seamless continuation either through email or a revisit to your site.

πŸ‘€ The Option To Spot and Engage Prospective Customers in Real-Time

With LiveChat integration, you get access to LiveChat application and, with it, a section we call Engage. Engage shows you the list of current visitors on your website in real-time. With additional data about your customers, like the time spent on your website, their approximate location and many more, you can use it to chat with your customers manually whenever you spot prospective customers or you notice that someone is potentially struggling with some aspect of your website.

🌐 24/7 Customer Service? Absolutely!

Whether you're spreading your support heroes across the globe or leaning on some nifty automation, LiveChat's got your back. Embrace the round-the-clock support dream with LiveChat's ChatBot integration – a no-code solution that lets you handle a thousand chats simultaneously. Use it to tackle more complex cases or simply provide unwavering 24/7 support.

If this sounds interesting, wait until you hear about all the other features* LiveChat offers! Check out LiveChat's official website, where you will find all the information you need, from all the available features to LiveChat Pricing page.

*Please note that the integration is currently in the Beta stage, meaning that not all of the features offered by LiveChat will work with OpenWidget. For example, OpenWidget cannot display LiveChat's greetings above the minimized bubble. However, we will display the notification dot there, informing your customers about the new message.

OK, so how can I integrate OpenWidget with LiveChat?

The process is really easy! All you need to do is to:

  1. Log into your OpenWidget app
  2. Go to the LiveChat section available under the Integrations category
  3. While there, simply click on the Try LiveChat button and we will automatically take care of the configuration and the activation of free, 14-days LiveChat trial for you. 

From now on, customers visiting your website and interacting with OpenWidget will be able to start a chat with you. Chats are forwarded to LiveChat application automatically, where you can reply to them and also configure additional LiveChat features.

Oh, and don't forget to install OpenWidget on your website!
