LiveChat is a robust customer service platform that lets you connect with your website visitors in real time. The tool helps you deliver high-quality customer service and boost online sales. If you integrate ChatBot with LiveChat, you can combine AI scalability and the human approach into your support services. 

Why should you integrate ChatBot with LiveChat

The ChatBot and LiveChat integration helps you improve the quality of your support services and boost your team performance. 

  • The chatbot can answer popular questions and solve minor problems. It provides your support agents with more time to focus on complicated customer issues. 
  • The chatbot can work 247. This means it can serve customers when your team is off.
  • One chatbot can answer multiple chats at once, lowering wait times.

Integration specifics

There are a couple of things you need to remember while using the ChatBot and LiveChat integration:

  • A chatbot becomes one of your agents and takes up one seat.
  • Within a group, all incoming chats are transferred to your chatbot agent first.
  • With LiveChat integration, ChatBot can perform special actions, including Transfer and Create ticket
  • By default, the chatbot is assigned to group 0. You can change the group in the Transfer action settings.
  • The chatbot can transfer a chat to a human agent, and a human agent can transfer a chat back to the chatbot.
  • All chats with the chatbot are archived both in ChatBot and LiveChat.
  • All chats handled by the chatbot are automatically tagged as a chatbot. Additionally, chats that were transferred to human agents get an additional tag: chatbot-transfer.
  • All chats are routed to the chatbot agent. You can change this setup using the Remember recent agents option toggle.
