One of the best things about PodiumIO is that we keep everything in one place so you don't have to jump from channel to channel like Chat to SMS.

Your "Communication Hub" automatically comes with an Multi-Channel Inbox.

Your Multi-Channel Inbox is a centralized place where you can send and receive all the messages from your customers via channels that have been connected like Chat Box, SMS, Email, Social media and WhatsApp.

Other important benefits of Multi-Channel Inbox -

1) Run both Marketing and prospecting campaigns with their existing customers and prospects,

2) Switch from channel to channel like Chat to SMS, and

3) Keep one visible thread for all customers/prospects for view by all administrators

You can add a FREE chat box to your website to engage your website visitors! Learn how to add Chat Box to your website!

If you are landing on the Inbox first time, you will see 2 warnings! They are related to installing the Chat Box (FREE), please click on the links to complete the 3 steps and enjoy engaging your website visitors with chat!

  1. Activate the Chat Box from the App market

  2. Turn Chat Box to "YES" inside the Customer Floating Dock

Once the 3 steps are completed, the warning will disappear!

Get to Know Your Inbox

1. Customer & Team Search Bar

Once your Inbox is connected with your preferred channels (like Chat Box, SMS, Team Chat, Facebook and Google My Business), the customer who messaged will be displayed in the part indicated by 1.

To start a new conversation, simply search the name of the customer and choose your preferred channel. Type your message and send!

To send a message to your Service Provider, search for your Service Provider's name and select "Team Chat" from the channel.

2. Message window

The message window displays all your messages in client-specific threads instantly.

Your Inbox allows you to quickly access all customer communication in one place. Email, text, live chat, Facebook Messenger or Google— you name it. Keep it all organized and actionable in one platform. The Inbox organizes conversations as if they were from the same platform, making it easier for you to manage and faster to respond.

(Please note: Email, Facebook Messenger and Google will be coming soon!)

3. You can easily switch between channels.

All your customer conversations will be organized as if they were from the same platform, making it easier for you to manage and respond faster. Your replies go directly to the customer in the channel it came in on—so for them, all they see is a flawless customer experience.

4. "Actions" - Give a better experience with a single view of every customer
