A recent study from Oracle found live chat to have the highest Customer Satisfaction Score (CSAT) among all the online service and sales channels. Live chat not only registered a 35% - 75% increase in agent productivity, it also reduced inbound phone calls and email messages significantly, according to the study. Given these set of circumstances, there are enough reasons why you should assign top priority to live chat among your service channels.
