Clickdesk, a combo of live chat, browser phone and a social toolbar, is specifically made for startups and targets companies with a team size of smaller than 10. “The goal is to provide multi-channel customer engagement platform for startups and entrepreneurs to communicate with web visitors and convert them to happy customers.” says co-founder Sreedhar Ambavati.Visitors can initiate chat/call/tweet or like from a small proactive popup while the agents can answer directly from their preferred IM - Skype/GTalk. This allows the agent to help even while they are on the go.As a next step in the direction of multi-channel engagement, “we have added ‘Help desk’ as the new channel for communication - without the bells and whistles you find in full-blown enterprise grade helpdesk systems but only the absolutely necessary features suitable for our customers (Startups and entrepreneurs) to help their web visitors quickly and efficiently.” explains Sreedhar when it comes to a differentiating factor when compared to Zendesk or Freshdesk.
