What is Live Chat?

Pendata has built an extremely useful Live Chat integration for Anoto Live Forms.

Live Chat is an app which provides business with a website the tools to communicate with its customers. LiveChat fills in for phone calls, which are expensive and for e-mails, which tend to be slow. The Live Chat App provides a range of cool features and resources such as unique greetings and powerful reporting to aide day-to-day business activities.

Over 12,000 happy customers rely on LiveChat in their everyday duties. We have built this app to provide a bridge between offline process (for example filling in a form) and the need to create an immediate Live Chat sequence with a Custom Service Agent.

How does it work?

This first beta of Anoto Live Forms / Live Chat works by responding to a action request on a form. A customer may check a box that says ‘More Info Required’ for example. Once this event is received by the ALF server, a chat sequence is initiated through the Live chat API and the sender of the request receives a hyperlink to a chat session on their device. The Agent can be copied on the user submitted document and complete the chat session with full insight into the user form.

Example: Customer Contact

A customer may be completing a credit application form / document that requires specific questions to be answered but needs more help with the responses. Checking the “get in touch” box on the form allows a Agent to provide the required info to the user without losing the contact with them.

Infographic and deployment examples

You will need a Live Chat account to set this app up. The user initiating the chat needs to provide a phone number or email address to enable Live Chat to contact them with a hyperlink back to the chat session. This contact form should be validated by the user on a their device.

We wrote about this development in a recent Blog post

Custom projects

There range of possibilities to include this in current processes are endless. This tool would work best as part of a custom solution – which we can also design for you. Get in touch to discuss this further.
