  • HappyFox Chat and Slack integration provide better collaboration and communication within support teams
  • Receive notifications for incoming chats, completed chats, and missed chats in Slack
  • Simple, one-click integration

For a busy support team, keeping track of tickets and managing incoming queries from customers is often handled within the business’ support tool. But what about live chat? Some businesses have a single agent managing live chat, and others let agents pick and choose the chat that they would like to take as it comes in. There’s not much by way of “managing” this communication with customers.

With a system like the latter in place, it’s easy to see how occasionally chats might get missed, or how an after-hours inquiry from a customer could get lost in the shuffle of the beginning of a day shift for your team.

With HappyFox Chat, we know that communicating effectively and quickly with your customers is why you chose us as your live chat solution. And with this in mind, we have now integrated HappyFox Chat with Slack, an industry-leader in collaborative communication for teams.

Here’s what we’ve given you with this integration:

Never miss a chat

With Slack and HappyFox Chat working in tandem, you can oversee all of the chat communications being managed (or in-queue) by your support team. Within your Slack rooms, you can now see triggered items like when a new chat request has come in, that a chat has been accepted by an agent, and even that a chat has been ended by an agent.

Manage missed chats more effectively

In customer support, it’s an unfortunate occurrence that sometimes live chat sessions with customers are missed. Sometimes your team is understaffed, and sometimes your team is simply inundated with inbound requests and unable to get to every customer.

Now, with Slack and HappyFox Chat integrated, you and your entire team will have a clear view within Slack to see what was missed at all times. Collaborative customer support has never been so easy!
