Another important advantage is that you can use your mobile internet to help people even if your internet connection is not good.

Managing this process with Supsis is easy.
Use Proactive Chat Invites
Take full advantage of proactive chat invites. Currently, 75% of transactions on sites that use Supsis for online customer service begin with proactive chat invitations. These invitations can work in two different ways.
The first is manual: your operator sees that a visitor has been on the page for a certain amount of time and communicates with the visitor.
The second is automatic (proactive); The working principle is the same but this time you don’t have to watch the customers. This option is less personal than manual. You are the one who determines how the automatic invite works. For example, you can send an invitation to a customer after they log into your website and when they go to the second page, not the first page. You also have the option to customize the messages to be sent according to the website they are on.
Have Voice and Video Call Options
Not everyone wants to receive support via SMS or text. Therefore, it would make sense to hold voice and video calls as alternatives. This will make your online customer service more flexible and appealing to a wider audience. However, the disadvantage of this service is that the number of customers you can reach at the same time is reduced. At the same time, you can organize in-company meetings and meetings between you via video calls, and provide your business meetings, business agreements and interviews.
Evaluate Yourself by Reporting Customer Feedback
