Live Chat (Proactive)


Can anyone recommend any Live Chat systems that you can integrate into a custom PHP website.

Most systems like clickdesk etc, all require your site to be powered by a framework such as Wordpess etc.

Essentially i would like to be able to reach out to my customers when they land on the site.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I really like Liveperson. It has a strong set of business rules that can trigger a chat window on behaviors of your visitors. For example, if someone clicks on a product page or a pricing page, you can trigger the chat window to launch. This is a simple use case; it can do a lot more complicated use cases as well. The backend is easy to use, and the software is simple to implement.

If you are looking for a cheaper solution, try Olark. It is not as robust, but it is affordable and is easy to implement as well.

Good luck!

There are several live chat software that can be integrated onto a PHP website. I too have a PHP based website and I use for it. I tried a lot of other chat solutions but this fitted our tailored needs the most. I would suggest you to try a bunch of them first to see how each works and then you can make a decision, that’s what I did. Olark, Live Chat Inc., Snapengage, Live2Support, are some of the of live chats you would want to try.

Hope this helps.
