Now, more than ever, increasing engagement and enhancing the customer experience requires that brands adopt the channels customers use throughout the day to communicate with colleagues, friends, and family. These include Instagram, Messenger, Twitter, and WhatsApp. And as more people engage in online transactions instead of in–store visits, adapting to consumer trends is a competitive advantage.
That’s why we developed a unified conversational platform enabling you to close the gap to your customers, connecting via their preferred channels. This innovation allows your agents to engage across all conversational channels within the context of a 360° customer view. It transforms transactional supplier/customer relationships into mutually beneficial relationships where loyalty builds, and businesses thrive.
Introducing innso Engage!
Our conversational messaging platform, innso Engage, enables omnichannel to be genuinely omnipresent. It allows you to engage in a continuous conversation, switch between channels—including messaging—with a single click, maintain visibility along every step of the customer journey, and keep track of how your agents perform against service level agreements.
In addition to traditional email, phone, and trouble ticketing channels, innso Engage adds Chat, Facebook, Messenger, SMS, WhatsApp, and Twitter to the mix. It enables your customers to use their preferred channel to start the conversation and switch whenever they want without interrupting the communication flow. They can contact you via email, call to add information, send a message via WhatsApp, or tweet to request additional info—all within a single conversation seamlessly monitored and managed by innso Engage.
Creating a Seamless Agent Experience
The magic lies in the console—a window into every customer interaction across all channels. On the left are all conversations assigned to the agent. Agents can quickly switch from one conversation to another. Clicking on a new conversation opens a 360°view of that customer’s data, including conversation history, engagement channels, open inquiries, and other essential information.
A simple, intuitive screen appears in the center, allowing agents to interact with the customer using the current channel chosen, share multimedia, and quickly reply with canned responses. Across the top, you have channel options, workflow management and contact center metrics such as average handle time (AHT), and SLA alerts.
Taking Customer Service to the Next Level
Integrating all conversational channels into one, seamless platform offers significant advantages for customers, agents, and management. Increasing agent productivity and customer satisfaction, these benefits include:
- Instant access to a comprehensive, 360°view of the client at all times across all channels
- Visibility into all previous events, interactions, and requests, including customer feedback
- The ability to transfer, put on hold, add comments, qualify sentiment, and prioritize each conversation
- An up-to-date view of backlog, AHT, and SLAs
Fast, personal, and easy to use, messaging takes customer service to the next level. It allows agents to be more effective while interacting with customers, increasing brand loyalty while never losing sight of the big picture or straying from defined contact KPIs.

Looking to the future
“The role of conversational messaging in customer service is critical to the success of every business. Customers don’t want to wait for the phone to be answered, an email replied to, or a chatbot to come online. While these channels play an essential role in customer service, the future is messaging.
