The Help Scout Integration: Connect Live Chat to your Helpdesk

Userlike and Help Scout can be integrated to better serve your online customers. If you were looking for an efficient way to improve software communication, this is it.

Help Scout is an “invisible” help desk tool to reach out to your customers and provide them with the support they're looking for. Especially developed for small companies, Help Scout makes sure every customer query is dealt with personally and all the information stored in organised shelves for later follow-up.

The great thing about Help Scout is that the end customer does not realise he is being served through a helpdesk system. Also, Help Scout offers the possibility to access detailed reports of all your customer interactions, displayed with great design in a single drill-down page. Everything about Help Scout looks neat and structured into making your workflow even more productive and enjoyable.

The integration we present you today between Userlike and Help Scout assures that you no longer need to manually transfer your chat contact details or offline messages into your helpdesk. With this new integration you are one click away from synchronising all your customer chat interactions directly into your helpdesk system.

If you want to send a chat conversation into Help Scout Dashboard, all you need to do is click on the chat panel button “Addons” and then press on “Help Scout”. Alternatively you only need to type $helpscout and the chat session will be sent automatically. It’s also easy to send your chat transcripts and offline messages into Help Scout. All it takes is a click on the button “Create Ticket” next to the message overview and then “Create Help Scout Ticket”.
