What is Chat Desk?

Chat Desk is an easy-to-use web-based application that enables real-time communication with your customers via a single web interface. Your clients can contact you via multiple channels while your customer service agents can respond to and manage these conversations from one convenient virtual service desk. Chat Desk also makes monitoring queries, chats, and agent performance easier so you can ensure your customers are receiving the best and most efficient service.
