LivePerson Extends Customer Service Solution

Customer service ASP LivePerson Inc. Tuesday unveiled LivePerson Service Edition -- Platinum Series, a fully integrated chat, email and knowledge base solution.

"LivePerson Platinum allows clients to manage all online customer communications through a single, easy-to-use interface," said Tony Pante, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Product Strategy at LivePerson. "This is a logical progression for the LivePerson product line as we leverage our expertise in real-time communication and move toward a complete solution for our clients' online communication needs."

LivePerson Platinum integrates LivePerson's flagship live chat application with a secure email response management system and a knowledge base and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) application. This system allows companies to provide customers with immediate real-time access to online customer service agents or to funnel customer inquiries through a self-service knowledge base, followed by the option to escalate to chat and email. LivePerson Platinum tracks an individual customer's interaction history from the knowledge base to an email and/or chat and compiles the transaction history into a single ticket.

Also available through LivePerson Platinum are enhanced security features for companies that need additional security when dealing with online inquiries. Along with a secure email platform, LivePerson offers clients 128-bit SSL encryption of all customer interactions, single sign-on capability across different applications and triple DES encryption of all stored data, enabling LivePerson to comply with all financial and healthcare privacy and security regulations.
