The Importance of Implementing a Live Chat Tool for Episerver Commerce Cloud Sites

Amid COVID-19, we are purchasing almost all of our products online, meaning more and more customers are going online each day to find the products they need, which can become a struggle with the lack of in-person assistance. Digital tools, however, can play an important role for businesses and consumers during their online shopping experience, such as integrating a Live Chatbot. Implementing Live Chat into your Episerver B2B Commerce Cloud, formerly Insite Commerce, site is helpful to your business and assists customers through their commerce journey in more ways than one.

Let’s dive into how Live Chat is resourceful for your business and consumers, as well as how simple it is to integrate it into the Episerver B2B Commerce Cloud framework.

The Leading Digital Contact Method

We live in the digital age, meaning we expect quick and accurate responses, especially when buying online. Live Chat allows customers to communicate in real-time with customer service representatives in a chatbot, rather than waiting to speak with a representative on the phone.

Live Chat can improve customer service and loyalty in the following ways:

  • Responding quickly to questions about specific products
  • Solving customer confusion and problems faster
  • Making new customers feel welcome with helpful communication
  • Assuring your customers that you are available at a moment’s notice
