Getting Started


OggChat is a business live chat software solution for custom support and sales that integrates with Google Talk, mobile, and your instant messenger.  It incorporates features such as live visitor monitoring, live chat history, geo-ip tracking, and customizable chat windows, and routes all chats directly to each operator's Google Talk account.  This means operators don't need any special software or training, they just login to Gmail or their IM client of choice and start accepting and responding to customer chat requests.


Web-based Software - No Installs

Chat with your customers from anywhere anytime.  All you need is a web browser and a Gmail or Google Talk account. You can even respond from your mobile phone or any device that supports Google Talk.  The OggChat hosted service handles everything else.


Gmail and Google Talk Chat Integration

Instead of requiring users to download a separate software application for OggChat live chat, we've integrated our service directly with Google. If you have a Gmail account, you can immediately start answering chat requests in Gmail, Google Talk, or any instant messenger that supports Google Talk such as iChat, Pidgin, or Adium.  Therefore anyone in your organization can respond to customer questions whenever you (or they) like.

Live Visitor Monitoring

When you login to OggChat Pro we give you real-time information on website visitors including ip, country, time on the site, visitor footprint, and location on Google Maps. You can even initiate a direct chat request to any visitor on your site. Automatically request a chat after a given period of time.

Skills Based and Department Based Chat Routing

Route live chats to specific agents based on department or topic.  Just create a list of departments for your chat window, add operators to each department based on their skills, and you're ready to go.  Visitors can select a department at the start of a chat and the chat requests will be routed only to operators assigned to those departments.


Chat History Search

Advanced prior chat history search by email, name, ip, or phone number.  A search link is automatically sent in chat request invites to quickly search prior conversations with the visitor, view geo location on Google Maps, and view details browser information.

Chat Transfer Between Operators

Transfer chats real-time to other available operators right from your Instant Messenger window without interrupting the client chat.


Geo Location

IP Address geo-location of all new chat requests show up right in the invite. So you know where each visitor is chatting from.  View the geo location of prior chat conversations as well as live site visitors.


Automatic Presence Detection and Routing

OggChat automatically determines if an operator is logged into Google or not.  So in addition to supporting operator schedules and office schedules, we won't route chats to operators who are offline or busy.


Unavailable Message Forms

OggChat automatically checks the office schedule as well as each operator's schedule before routing requests.  If no operators are available, the visitor can leave a message that will automatically be forwarded to your email address.


Support for Multiple Websites and Domains

Support as many chat windows as you like in each domain of your choice.  Customize the look and brand for each domain so that you can manage many sites from one simple interface and from one Gmail account.
