Serving Chat Inquiries

maaiiconnect chat works the same way as any instant messaging application. Using an internet connection, you can send and receive instant messages to and from your visitors.

Your website visitors and customers can chat with you using the maaiiconnect widget's tag directory, staff directory, or click-to-action button. They can also reach you through the web links and QR codes you share or post in marketing campaigns and advertisements, or by sending a message on your Facebook Pages.

You can answer and attend to these messages as inquiries on your maaiiconnect service account. maaiiconnect lets you switch between calls and chat, depending on the support and response needed from your business support operations. You can also switch between rooms and reply to messages from your space group chats.

Inquiries from the Website

The conversation between you and your website visitor begins when they click on the maaiiconnect widget and selects the chat icon in the tag or staff directory, or when they click on a click-to-action (CTA) button (1).

If you are a staff member with ACTIVE availability status and assigned to a Destination that serves the Tag or Staff Inquiry, the maaiiconnect dashboard or mobile app will alert you of the message. It will also appear on your Open Inquiry panel (2).
