How to set the maximum chat limit for your support agents?


To improve the quality of your customer service, efficiency of your support team and overall customer experience, you need to understand how well the support team can perform under pressure.

You may have been using several support channels like phone, email and live chat solution together, but to provide the best customer service, you need to be efficient in customer support management. With live chat, one agent can handle multiple customers at a time, which is not possible by phone or email, but that does not mean for workforce optimization, you will assign each agent with too many chat requests to handle. Trust me, the result will be bad, as they will not be able to deliver their best.

What will happen when agents reach their maximum chat limit?

Suppose all of your support agents are busy in assisting others and have reached their maximum chat limit, then the next website visitor seeking some sort of help will come in the queue and he/she will receive the same message with the respective queue number.

Meanwhile, as soon as one of your agents, finishes one chat session, he will get the new chat request from that visitor and they both can start the chat session. It helps in customer support management and delivering the best service to your customers.
