3CX Facebook and SMS integration

12/11/2020

At the start of November, 3CX released Update 7 Alpha which supports Facebook and SMS integration, while adding improvements to Live Chat. This has resulted in one central location for Facebook, SMS and Live Chat messages.

 

3CX has done their research and over 5 billion people use messaging services each month! Further to that, 56% of consumers prefer to message their favourite brands instead of calling. Connecting with customers simply and effectively has never been easier with 3CX.

 

The live chat feature included in 3CX enables your agents to respond to Facebook and SMS messages immediately from their web client or smartphone app. Keep all your communications on one platform, saving time and monthly subscriptions with the new Facebook and SMS integration.

 

So, let’s break down the benefits available.
