Admin Overview

Using Acquire

There are several components of Acquire to allow you to engage your customers in a way that suits their needs and situation the best. In this guide, we will do a quick overview of how Acquire works as a solution. As well as cover the below items to set up all Admins for success!  Below is the Acquire home page, where every user will be taken to upon login and where all agents will access and start their chats.

Starting a Chat

Using Acquire you are able to chat with your customers on your website, and in your application whether on the web or on mobile. Each chat is in real-time and can easily transition into a call, a video call, or a co-browsing session giving your agents flexibility in how they each handle each situation.

Chat to Voice & Video Call

As an admin, you have the ability to allow audio and video calls through chat, and if you do your agents will be able to initiate an audio or video call to your customers if a problem is too complicated to be handled over chat. Neither will have to leave the chat or download anything, it is just a simple click of the phone or video button.

Chat to Co-browse

From a chat, agents can also initiate co-browse sessions, co-browsing lets you scroll, highlight elements and fields using our toolbar, allowing you to guide your customer in real-time.

The customer will see a request to start a co-browse session and once they confirm, the co-browse session will begin.

During a co-browse session, you still have the option to chat or to use audio. For other questions about co-browsing permissions, please see our Admin FAQ

Please let us know if you have any other questions by chatting to support on our website and we have product walkthroughs and our knowledge base to assist as you get more familiar with Acquire!
