Click4Assistance Live Chat Service is Mobile Compatible
With the rise of devices such as mobile and tablets being able to provide users with equivalent apps that laptops can, it’s vital live chat services are adaptable to whichever device users are browsing on.
Symptomatic of the fall in Laptop purchases, many people have now turned to mobile devices such as phones and tablets. PCs and laptops now face competition from smartphones and tablets, which have been improved with longer battery life cycles and of course, are highly portable. IDC, an American analysis and advisory firm, said PC shipments fell by 10.6% and the decline was the worst since it started tracking them.
Half of all UK adults access the internet on their mobile phone. Purchases made using smartphones or tablets has grown by 551% in the last year. Students at Universities are more likely to use a live chat tool on their smartphone than PCs, the 16-25 year old demographic prefer to use their smartphones as a means of text-based communications and have easier access. Employees in workplaces may prefer the PC as it’s already conveniently placed.
With Samsung and Apple taking over the smartphone market and a range of tablets, it’s important that businesses cater for all devices. At Click4Assistance, we understand the UK market and provide a multi-platform chat solution designed to reach more customers and generate more leads.
Using live chat services on a smartphone or tablet is just another simple way of communicating with agents and answering visitor’s questions efficiently. There are no setup costs, quick and easy implementation and of course, unlimited chat variations. The windows are responsive and compatible for a phone or tablet.
The Difference between the Live Chat App across a Variety of Devices
The live chat app windows on a desktop are bigger and offer more freedom when customising, the space on the window allows a more elaborate design. They can be moved around on the page while the visitor is still able to browse. Mobile devices offer less virtual real estate and a challenging mix of resolutions. The live chat on website interface needs to accommodate landscape/portrait orientation for easier use with a different input, especially virtual keyboard and touchscreen. Internet connection is generally slower, therefore a simpler design is required which aids the window’s load speed.
How We Deliver Live Chat Services
Our solution has a responsive window that adapts to the size of the visitor’s device, ensuring that every visitor has a user friendly experience. Using an embedded live chat services window, the solution detects if the visitor is browsing on a mobile and the popup window is presented in a new tab within the browser, which means the visitor can still browse the website, while engaging in chat.
