Integrate Wix chat with Slack - forward Wix messages and respond to them in Slack
Chats on your Wix website are a great tool to keep the communication flow going with your customers. But managing all the messages coming to the chat through email or the Wix admin panel isn’t the easiest. Especially when you have to divide your attention between several communication tools.
Luckily, there’s a better way to manage communication with your customers. One that integrates all the messages in 1 very convenient place.
Does Wix integrate with Slack?
You can find an option to integrate Slack with Wix chats on the Wix integrations page. However, this integration allows you only to receive notifications about a new message waiting for you.
You still have to move your attention to another app, log into it and check out the message. Which takes time and is straight-up irritating, especially when you have to do it several times a day.
That’s why at Lounar, we prepared a much more convenient alternative.
Lounar’s Wix to Slack integration helps you move all the communication from Wix chats directly into a dedicated Slack #channel. Our app helps you:
Get notified when there’s a new message for you
Read the entire message customer sends to you
Respond to the message directly in Slack.
Sounds awesome? That’s because it is.
Lounar simplifies communication with customers and enhances collaboration within your team. No need to switch between your company’s email and other communication apps to respond to all the messages you get. Now, you have everything in 1 place.
