Overall Satisfaction with Zoho Chat

The chat tool started as an experimental add-on for our support and sales team. But over time it has proven to be a fantastic addition to our customer contact toolset. It keeps track of visitor logs which lets our sales team be more effective when they are having a conversation with a potential client. The fact that we can track where a live visitor has come from and the path they are taking through our website is also incredibly useful data for our client engagement team. We can see what pages our clients most engage with and where they are most likely to contact us or take actions. It is also really easy to use so it required very little training for our contact team to be able to handle chats from incoming users.
  • Its interface is really simple to use so you don't need to spend a lot of time training your people to manage incoming contacts.
  • The visitor tracking is excellent. It will provide a lot of very useful data for your team to see what works on your site and what doesn't.
  • It integrates really well with other Zoho apps.
  • Their support is excellent. We got useful, informative responses from them when we had to contact them.
  • Initial set up can be a little daunting if you aren't a tech-savvy person. For large organizations, this might not matter since you would have a dedicated IT team that will handle it (as we did) but if you are a small business owner looking to set this up yourself, I imagine it would take some trial and error to get working.
  • It has made it easier for us to track how our visitors navigate through our web portals.
  • Made it easier for us to maintain contact with visitors by providing them with an instant contact tool.
  • It has increased the number of leads our sales team used to get through our website.
We selected Zoho because it was already a part of the Zoho toolset we were using. They offered a free trial which was a big help in our purchasing decision. Our team looked at one other alternative but we weren't satisfied with the pricing quote we got from them and the fact that we were already using other Zoho apps made our decision easier.
If you have a website through which your clients engage (either sales or support) your offerings, then you absolutely need a live chat tool. Having used Zoho for a while now, I can absolutely recommend it. If you have not used a chat tool before but you have an online store then you should definitely explore this option. They offer a free trial so you can test it to see what response you get but for sales related websites, this will pay for itself.
