Supervisors can also monitor conversations, topics, and CSAT in real-time with the Monitor tool.

Say goodbye to tedious tasks

Inbox has a ton of automation and time-saving tools like suggested replies and tags, auto-responder, business hours, message filters, and cross-channel conversation history. It also has built-in language detection and smart routing, so it will automatically assign queries to qualified agents.

Whether tagging a teammate into a conversation or working alongside the customer service team to resolve an issue, Inbox makes cross-platform and cross-team collaboration easy. There’s even features to ensure teammates don’t accidentally respond to the same comments. Engage followers and resolve customer support tickets fast and efficiently.

See what’s working and drive results

Measure the metrics that matter to your business and prove ROI. Impressions and engagement are easy to track with Hootsuite Analytics, and Inbox lets you go deeper with things like response times, CSAT scores, message volume, and much more. Automatic and custom reports ensure you have everything you need to measure and improve performance. 

Improve efficiency with CRM integrations
