Respond to chats right from Slack, We want to enable you to talk to your customers from anywhere at any time. We know it’s hard to be in front of a computer at all times and a lot of you spend most of your day in Slack. That’s why we built our two-way Slack integration.

Real-Time Notifications In Slack

It’s free to use Acquire + Slack.

Whether it’s a prospect on a website that has a question or one of your customers that are stuck and are looking for product information, the customer support agent will be able to give response/answers to the visitors in real-time right from slack.

As you can see, Acquire automatically creates a brand new channel for that conversation (#acquire-chat-12345) in the above example.

 You can then click on the link to create the new channel, and respond directly to the customer. Once you type your message and hit send button, the visitor or user will be able to see that message pop up in their Acquire chat.
