How does FreshBooks works with Chat Agents
Upon completion of a chat on your site, a new chat lead is added by our Chat Agents with all contact information, a brief chat summary, and the chat transcript.
With this FreshBooks - Chat Agents integration, these lead details are automatically added as a new lead in your FreshBooks account.
When a chat visitor returns to your site and provides more information, a new chat summary is added along with the new chat transcript from Chat Agents. These lead details are also automatically updated in FreshBooks.
