About Product


  • Anticipate customer questions and offer help when—and where—they need it most.
  • Raise your sales. Customers are 3X more likely to make a purchase when you reach out with a chat.
  • Less wait, more happy. Chat and messaging let agents help more customers in less time, which means happier customers more of the time.



Reach out and talk to customers before they even ask a question. Innovative clothing rental company Le Tote uses an automated trigger to offer help to customers who are lingering on the checkout page. By proactively engaging customers during the buying process, Le Tote is able to reduce cart abandonment and increase conversions.



Analytics plays an important role in chat and messaging. It sheds light on customer satisfaction, agent performance, and helps identify issues before they become problems. Better numbers and quality reports let you measure successes and stay on target.


Wherever you go, there they are

Chat and Message allow your agents to engage customers over websites, mobile apps, and popular messaging apps like Facebook Messenger, Twitter, and LINE. That means you can build relationships with customers in the places they prefer.



Customer support isn’t limited to chat. The Zendesk platform lets agents switch between serving chats, phone calls, emails, or social media messages. And with the Zendesk Web Widget, customers can ask for help or find the answers themselves, all without interrupting their shopping experience.



Customers are three times more likely to make a purchase when you proactively send them a message. Using Chat, you can track your customers and engage them at just the right moment.



Send targeted and behavior-based messages to customers. For example, you can help customers complete their purchase by automatically reaching out with a chat.



Pre-chat forms

Ask your visitors for their contact information before starting a chat. This helps you triage chat requests and prioritize high-value customers.



Visitor list

Fishing charter company Fishfishme uses Chat to monitor its website visitors and the pages they are browsing. This lets them target specific users and offer help when they need it.



Offline forms

Your website never sleeps – even if you do. Leave offline forms enabled on your website and ensure customers can contact you while you are away.



Chat ratings

Chat offers the highest satisfaction rating of any support channel, but there’s always room for improvement. Use chat ratings to gather feedback and continue to improve your performance.



File sending

“A picture is worth a thousand words.” It’s a cliché, but in customer support it never gets old. Share any file with your customer—a screenshot, a product guide, even an animated GIF—and solve problems faster.
