What is Live chat support definition ?

Live chat is a customer / visitor support tool that allows a customer service representative to converse in real time via typing with a potential customer.

Live chat services favor sales by assisting and resolving customer queries and by upselling and cross-selling propositions.

Live chat service can be managed internally or outsourced to external agents. A chat operator can manage multiple visitors at the same time. The live chat software is usually a saas solution.
