Insight & Recommendations
46% of Leads sent After Hours
QualifiedChat confirmed that 46% of sales leads were sent outside of regular work hours. Our live agents engaged visitors with chat before they have a chance to leave the website.
194 Hours of Chat Managed
QualifiedChat handled 194 hours of live chat over the 12-month period. Of this, 89 hours were outside of regular office hours, allowing UMC to increase staffing without increasing staff.
80% of Leads Sent by Family Members
80% of the live chat leads received by UMC were from a family member, rather than a person looking for services themselves. QualifiedChat recommended updating marketing messages to reflect this.
63% of Leads Classified as Sales
While 63% of leads were sent as sales, 37% of the live chat leads handled by QualifiedChat were classified as “non-sales”, and sent at no charge. For these, QualifiedChat recommended having FAQ links in the chat script to aid visitor flow.
