Live chat technology provides an easy, quick and convenient way for companies to connect with their clients. Many online businesses are taking advantage of it and succeed to improve their credibility, increase customer loyalty and drive more sales. However, there are specifics to every industry and live chat yields different results in different business areas. Is it effective for companies who provide web hosting solutions?
Let’s have a look at what some of the host providers who have used live chat have to share about their experience with this tool.
Here’s what Jose David Bravo, the CEO at http://www.colombiahosting.com.co/, a Colombia-based web hosting company, says on how live chat has helped him to improve sales and increase efficiency.
“We found [in live chat] a perfect tool to improve communication with our customers through our web-site. Sales have improved and technical support became more efficient. The ability to customize the tool in Spanish offers great benefits for our organization. Many of our customers prefer us over the competition thanks to on-line support.”
Ioannis E. Farazoumis, the General Manager at http://dnhost.gr/, Domains & Hosting company based in Greece writes on the benefits that adding live chat has brought to his business, including some compliments to our company (thank you, Ioannis).
“We are serving dozens of customers on a daily basis and it saves us time and money, because it helps answer common or complicated questions and solve matters instantly and provide a higher level of support than the competition.
It helps us keep our customers satisfied and happy, increase client loyalty and spread our good fame!
After our switching to Provide Support, some of our web hosting competitors in Greece have also signed-up with P/S, and this is one of the best proofs that we have made the right choice!”
Matt Wallis, Director at UnitedHosting.co.uk, a UK web hosting company in his testimonial stresses how important it is for a web hosting company to offer a reliable support service.
“We have used several live support applications over the years, but Provide Support is by far the best. This software is stable, easy to use and pleasing to the eye. It is also extremely reliable, a trait not shared by other live chat software on the market today.
If you plan to offer a live chat feature on your site then you should not consider using anything other than Provide Support.”
