Zendesk Chat Price comparison with Features

Zendesk chat is of the view that a chat is worth a thousand emails. You can add chat to your website or connect your messaging channels and start talking to customers within minutes. Chats and Messages let you help customers in real time, which increases customer satisfaction and as we all know that satisfied customers are happier customers. Happier customers are three times more likely to make a purchase when you proactively send them a message. Using Chat, you can track your customers and engage them at just the right moment. You can help customers complete their purchase by automatically reaching out with a chat. You can also use pre-chat forms to ask visitors for their contact information before starting a chat, or offline forms to ensure customers can contact you even while you’re away.
