Customer service via Whatsapp
LigeroSmart also manages calls made via Whatsapp. This occurs through Rocket.Chat which receives all the omnichannel demands of the platform (Telegram, Whatsapp, Messenger, Teams, Webchat etc.), centralizes and organizes the service in a single location.
We use the Whatsapp official API. It is therefore necessary to acquire access to a subscription in order to use the service. Contact us for more information via email email@example.com, by calling (11) 2506-0180, or through our whatsapp at the same number.
How integration works
The service flow is simple. The requester sends a message to his official whatsapp number:
Rocket.Chat will create a ticket immediately on LigeroSmart, with some customer data.
The conversation is shown on Omnichannel so that some analyst can continue with the service, or for some Bot to continue the discussion:
At the end of the chat, the entire service transcript is sent to the call, as described in this article that demonstrates the integration of LigeroSmart with Rocket.Chat. Important: You must do this integration before proceeding with the integration with Whatsapp for the ticket to be created.
