Single Sign-On (SSO)

Did you forget your long, complicated password? Not a problem! A single sign-on feature allows seamless login flow between our related software and other platforms.

Console Teams Sidebar

Are you a big dealer group with multiple BDC employees to monitor? Always be in the know with a handy staff organization sidebar that lets you see and access current online live chat agents.

Messaging Translation

Accommodate your diverse, international/multi-cultural customer base while texting with 14 languages available for immediate translation.

Pushing Pages

Push relevant pages at the end of your conversations to keep customers engaged and clicking around on your website after you’ve assisted them via live chat.

Lead Form Autofill

Vehicle information auto-fills with VIN entry - our software is pretty smart!
