Why would you outsource live chat?

Outsourcing live chat can be an important decision, Outsourcing a part of your company is an important decision in and of itself. We understand this very well.

2014 study: 42% of studies websites are not available via live chat during the day

During the first two weeks of this month, we have studied the availability of live chat on 108 Dutch websites.
