Full support in one clever chat widget
Deskpro Messenger lets you provide great support anywhere. Customers can access essential helpdesk features from a single, intuitive interface that you can embed wherever they need it the most.
Live chat is nice because it allows our customers to ask us questions rather than just creating tickets. Combining that with the use of documentation we can prevent tickets being created in the first place.

Connect customers with your agents
Deskpro gives you the tools to set up automatic chat routing. But it also gives you the flexibility to allow managers to manually override rules, if they need to.
Agents can only handle a certain number of chats at one time. Queues keep customers updated and agents at optimum capacity.
Assign incoming chats evenly to your available agents; each new chat is assigned to the next agent in the queue, so the workload is balanced.
Assign incoming chats to agents in the queue who have handled the fewest chats.
Any incoming chats will ring all agents in the chat department simultaneously. The first agent to manually accept will handle the chat.
Control access to chat support in conjunction with usergroups. Allow certain usergroups to access certain departments.
Divide your agents into departments so that customer issues always land in the right hands. Create rules specific to departments.
Ask your customers questions before they start their chat. Route them to the best department and helps your agents know exactly what their issue is before they start talking.
We’re always referring people to our Knowledgebase that contains over 500 articles. Customers love it that they can help themselves at any time, day or night and our agents love it because it reduces the number of tickets we receive.

Some issues can't be resolved during a quick chat session. Deskpro registers chat conversations as tickets so it's easy to keep track of all your customers issues. Enabling your agents to continue conversations with your customers at a later date with all the context.
Build trust by automatically sending customers a full chat transcript for future reference. Full chat also stored in helpdesk for agents to refer back to if needed.
Deskpro's intuitive interface means that agents can handle chats more effectively and access customer context at their fingertips.
Insights to help your team improve
Understand team performance, customer behavior, and reveal key insights using in-built or custom reports and dashboards.
As we started growing rapidly, I needed to get full control of our data. That meant looking for an on-premise helpdesk. Deskpro by far excelled over the other helpdesks we looked at.
