LogMeIn Previews BoldChat Twitter Integration for Online Customer Care at Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition
CHICAGO, June 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- INTERNET RETAILER CONFERENCE AND EXPO -- LogMeIn (LOGM) (Nasdaq:LOGM) today announced that it will preview new Twitter integration and social media management capabilities for its BoldChat customer care offering at the Internet Retailer Conference and Expo, June 5th-8th in Chicago (BoldChat booth #1214). Designed to help businesses and customer service agents intelligently manage a rapidly growing number of customer interactions on Twitter, from pre-sales inquiries to post-sales support, the new capabilities will complement BoldChat's live chat, click-to-call, email, and SMS features. As a result, customer service teams can use a single, unified tool to manage customer conversations across online, mobile, email, phone, and social channels, while providing a comprehensive view of customer interactions.
The BoldChat Twitter integration and management capabilities are aimed squarely at customer service and customer care teams, and will feature functionality uniquely designed for those roles, including the ability to:
- Provide integrated social, email, SMS text, and online customer support through a single interface
- Automatically thread related tweets into conversations for context, more efficient response, and to de-clutter the UI
- Auto-assign incoming Twitter conversations to agents based on availability, skill, and/or department
- Maintain and show historic customer conversations for faster resolution and better service
- Report on total Twitter-based customer interactions and agent responses
- Manage and respond to tweets using multiple Twitter accounts from within a single interface, without having to switch views
A video demonstration of the new capabilities can be seen on the BoldChat YouTube channel or by visiting the BoldChat booth at IRCE (#1214).
"We support customers through multiple channels, and it's critical for us to provide a positive, seamless cross-channel customer experience," said Jon Abt, co-president, Abt Electronics, a BoldChat customer. "Social media, including Twitter, is an important focus for us in this objective, and we are excited about what's to come from BoldChat in this space."
"We feel there is a considerable gap in the market when it comes to Twitter and customer care -- an opportunity to deliver capabilities designed from the ground up for managing social customer service conversations," said Steve Castro-Miller, VP, Chat Products, LogMeIn, Inc. "We believe that the right approach is not just one off monitoring of or response to individual tweets, but really making it easier for businesses to thread together and manage conversations as they would with any other customer communications channel."
