Online visitors

Are you tired of switching between interfaces to help your customers? Spending time searching between platforms can lower customer satisfaction and make your agents stressed out.

To provide exceptional customer service, you need to have the right tools for your agents. They are the first people the customers come into contact with. As a result, your agents create the brand image or, in other words, the customer perception of your company.

Your customer representatives have the power to either create long-lasting relationships or to lose customers to the competition.

LiveAgent is a complex help desk software that is user-friendly. It allows your agents to deal with all the customer inquiries from one place. The system has more than 170 features to help your agents provide a smooth CX. One of them is called Online visitors.

What are online visitors?

It is a section/feature of a LiveAgent where you can see all visitors online browsing your website on one screen. So, you can check what sites they are browsing and how much time they have spent there. Moreover, you can find out the visitors’ referrers, an IP address, and country to help prepare yourself before a Chat conversation.

How can you utilize the online visitors’ feature?

The Online visitors feature is somewhat similar to Google Analytics or other platforms that show you data about your website visitors. You do not need to switch platforms when you want to have a quick overview of your visitors online.

Moreover, the online visitors’ section is a great source of information for your agents before agents start chatting with the customers. Since you can use proactive invitations in LiveAgent, you can leverage this information later or immediately in the conversation to provide the best possible CX.

What can you see in the online visitors’ section? 

  • Visitor’s country
  • Time
  • IP address
  • Visitor’s actual site
  • Visitor’s referrer

How can you invite the visitors to chat?

Your agents can manually invite them to chat by clicking on the Start Chat button. After that, you can choose the right chat window of an invitation from your dropdown list (chat invitation is displayed on the page the visitor is currently browsing). 


  • Overview of your current website traffic
  • Source of information
  • Better proactive chat approach
  • Improved customer satisfaction
  • Better agent workflow
