Providing live chat to customers properly is more of an art than a science. Many companies try to implement this service however they are not able to keep their customers satisfied on that platform due to various reasons like lack of technology or poor response time.

Outsourcing to BPO services providers that offer multichannel services to clients might be a smart idea here.
