How can Chat history improve your customer service?

We’ve probably all have been there. Explaining the previous issue to the new customer representative. Do you remember how frustrating it was? Customer satisfaction decreases the longer your customer has to explain the issue. Overall this creates pretty stressful and unnecessary heated chat conversations. To prevent this, LiveAgent has created a customer conversation history feature where you can easily search chats.

What can you see in Chat history?

  • Name of visitor
  • Name of Agent
  • Visitor’s country
  • Date
  • Time
  • Department
  • Tags

Real-life Example:

Let’s say that Wendy wants to ask a live chat agent about an issue she experienced a month ago. It was solved, but it happened again. The live chat agent can have a quick look at the previous chat conversation. As a result, see what the solution was and why it wasn’t permanent. With this information at their disposal, the agent can suggest a different approach. Or on the other hand, explain what needs to be done differently. Therefore, this issue won’t occur in the future.
