When a visitor comes to your site, they'll find a chat widget docked to the edge of their window. If they need to chat, all they need to do is enter their name and the conversation will begin! (You can try it out yourself with our own widget, if you'd like.)
You can now also pop out the chat into a new window, allowing your visitors to continue to browse the site while talking to your operators.
With Pure Chat there is nothing to install. Operators login to their dashboards right inside of any modern web browser. In this image, the Current Chats tab is selected. At a glance, an operator can monitor and participate in chat sessions. This is also where operators indicate their availability and can see incoming chat requests.
To use hosted chat pages, enable “hosted chat page” in your widget settings and paste the link on any profile, post or email. Clicking the link will pop up a new page where visitors can chat with you like they would from a chat widget on your website.
Sometimes you don't want to be tied to your computer, but you still want to be available for chat. Now, you can answer chats on the go with our iPhone and iPad application.
Often, site visitors will ask similar questions to your operators. Pure Chat makes it easy to provide pre-configured “private” and “public” responses without losing the personal touch that makes live website chatting such a valuable tool in the first place. This feature saves your operators time, which results in your web site visitors receiving even faster service.
Canned responses can be accessed by a dropdown menu, or autocomplete as you type.
The Transcripts tab provides operators with a complete history of all chats in the system. This can help with operator education and collaboration.
With Pure Chat you can customize how the chat widget appears on your web site. You can provide a name for your chat widget, a title, a dark or light theme, and a ton of other options, and you can determine where on your web pages the widget will appear. Also, you can set an availability time that automatically makes operators unavailable each day at a certain time.
Administrators and operators can change the name that appears when they chat with website visitors. The email field is used for logging in and resetting forgotten passwords. This is also where you'll set your alert options.
Pure Chat provides straightforward user management features—add users, set passwords, edit users, edit roles, and delete users. Add as many operators as you would like.
Administrators have access to chat statistics that tell them daily and cumulative chat numbers. It's also easy to see how visitors are rating their chats overall and at the operator level.
If you're using OnTime Help Desk, Axosoft's incident tracking software, you can easily submit new incidents from Pure Chat. Setting up integration is easy—make sure you turn on your OnTime API—and you'll be able to submit any Pure Chat log to OnTime as a new incident. Chat logs can be included as text file attachments or added directly to the incident description.

Embed a customizable button anywhere you would like on your website to initiate the pop up chat widget. Just copy and paste an additional snippet of code where you would like the button to show up.
Enabling desktop notifications will help make sure that your support and sales chat operators answer incoming chats faster. Other notifications include the page title changing and a browser alert window.
Monitor how your sales and support team is doing during chat sessions. At the end of every chat, users are able to vote with a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down”. Users can also download the chat transcript.
Operators can quickly see their availability status when they are logged in. Toggling the status to available or unavailable is a one-click process.
Both operators and visitors can see when the other is typing. This feedback makes the online conversation experience better for both participants.
With Pure Chat, operators can chat with each other. This allows the operators to collaborate and provide even better service to your website visitors.
