New HelpOnClick Plugins for Live Chat with Helpdesk Tools

As HelpOnClick has been constantly updating and coming up with new improvements, we’ve been working on providing new ways to integrate our Live Chat software into a Helpdesk application. And we’ve come up with some great additional instructions you can use in order to easily integrate Live Chat into your website.

Integrate Live Chat with your Helpdesk

Because your customers’ experience is one of the most important parts of your business, it’s vital to provide them with all possible communication channels, so they can reach you for assistance anytime and in a fast and easy way. This is why, Live Chat support can be a great way to gain customer satisfaction, even if you already have a Helpdesk system. To make the process easier for you, HelpOnClick has developed new integration instructions, for some of the most popular Helpdesk tools.

Zendesk   Freshdesk   Desk.com

With our HelpDesk integration instructions, you can easily install Live Chat on your Customer Support Portal and you can also turn your chats into support tickets, by forwarding transcripts to your support email address.
