Help Desk Integration - SMS

Send and receive SMS messages from Enchant shared inbox

SMS is becoming an increasingly popular way to provide customer support as it provides a more personal touch than email and is more convenient than a phone call. With SMS, you customer service team can form deeper connections and build customer loyalty.

With 90% of text messages being opened within 5 minutes, businesses that use text messages can resolve customer problems more quickly, leading to better customer experiences.

Manage SMS Conversations as a Team

Using SMS integration, Enchant converts the customer requests received via SMS (text message) into tickets in your Enchant inbox.

When your team writes a response on an SMS conversation, it is sent to the customer through your SMS channel.

Now, your support team can use their standard workflows and productivity tools to work together and efficiently resolve your customers’ problems.
