Integrate Freshsales and Freshchat
By integrating Freshsales with Freshchat you can convert your visitor and bot conversations into leads or contacts in Freshsales. Everytime a new visitor reaches out to you through chat, you can automatically create a lead/contact in Freshsales.
Plus, you can chat with customers from your website/app right from within Freshsales. This will eliminate the need to switch between two different tabs or windows.
