You certainly aren’t alone! Intercom is trusted by over 20,000 teams, who rely on the platform to better communicate with their customers. That means that every team using Intercom has at least one thing in common: an understanding of how valuable customer communication is for a business.
If you aren’t already familiar with Intercom, Intercom is able to bring a conversational approach to customer support. Intercom can support live chat capabilities, as well as bots, apps, in-app messages, and more. These features all allow you to connect with your customers, and the variety of options helps make Intercom a perfect solution for businesses of all sizes and styles.
Intercom’s mission is one which Yodel very closely relates to, which is giving customers and businesses more opportunities to connect in a way that makes sense. That’s why we wanted to give you ANOTHER option within Intercom that will allow you to connect with customers: Text Messaging.
We aren’t surprised that this may be news to you… because we are just announcing our latest integration option that helps you unlock new capabilities within Intercom, including business text messaging!
It’s simple to do. You can find all of your business text messages within ‘Conversations’. If you are starting a new conversation via text messaging, click on the phone number you’d like to send your message from. You can then type out your message, and click send. Just like that, you’ve unlocked a new channel of communication between you and your contacts.
If you receive an inbound text, Yodel will automatically start a new conversation. All inbound and outbound text messages will be stored within your contact’s profile. That way, you can easily access previous communications, and never have to worry about finding this information when you need it.
With the Yodel and Intercom integration, you can unlock a whole lot more than just SMS texting. You will instantly be able to:
Sync your contact information:
Yodel can automatically sync the contact information you already saved within Intercom. No one will have to manually input and update your contact information within your phone system. Instead, you can relax knowing that you will have consistent customer labeling across platforms.
Log call activity:
Tired of switching between countless tabs to get the information you are looking for? With Yodel, you can access past phone calls all within Intercom. You can access your call activity by looking at ‘Events’ within your contact’s profile information. That way you can easily keep track of recent inbound and outbound calls involving specific contacts.
Want a refresher on recent communications? You can take advantage of Yodel’s call recording capabilities, and even access the call recordings from within Intercom. Simply go to ‘Events’ in your contact’s profile, and you will be able to access a link to your call recording.
If you’re looking to combine Yodel with Intercom, all it takes is a few clicks of a button. We made it simple so you don’t have to spend time worrying about getting set up, and instead can start taking advantage of all the new features you’ve unlocked within Intercom.
