NEW YORK, April 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Aircall, one of the fastest growing cloud phone systems, today announced the launch of Aircall Now for Intercom, a breakthrough application that aims to transform the way businesses interact with customers and prospects. Aircall Now allows businesses using Intercom to instantly transition text chat with customers into a phone conversation within the Intercom Messenger, streamlining the sales, marketing and customer support workflow.
Aircall has partnered with Intercom, the first customer platform for internet businesses, to enable voice calling on the company's messenger, which powers 500M monthly conversations and has engaged 1 billion unique people to-date. By enabling agents to instantly call customers, Aircall Now provides a deeper level of personalization and efficiency for customers and prospects. Once a voice call is initiated within Intercom Messenger, the application window will instantly turn into a voice experience with no downloads, external links or set up required.
"Integrations and partnerships like this are at the very core of our vision at Aircall to make voice calls as collaborative as possible," says Olivier Pailhes, CEO and Co-founder of Aircall. "We are honored to have the opportunity to build upon the breakthrough Intercom Messenger platform to bring a new customer communication channel to the market."
Through the Intercom Messenger framework, open to third party apps, Aircall Now is enhancing the customer and sales experience. Agents will receive calls directly on their Aircall application, allowing them to maintain their workflow and seamlessly collaborate within the team. This provides access to Aircall's full range of features including call recording, agent coaching, and advanced analytics, all of which enable sales and support teams to operate more efficiently.
"Our new Messenger powers more than just chat and the Aircall Now app is a really great example of this," says Jeff Gardner, Head of Platform Partnerships at Intercom. "With Aircall Now, sales and support teammates can initiate an audio call with a customer right in the Messenger, so they can have more meaningful and personal conversations with their leads and customers. Customers get this beautiful, frictionless experience of an audio call without having to install additional software or even go to another tab in their browser."
