Keeping Up with Social Support – Add Remote Support to Your Facebook Page

The explosion of social media is prompting a dramatic change in how people interact with each other and with brands. Customers are even turning to social media for customer service, whether you want them to or not.

Are you prepared? Is your company ready to deliver support in the social channels preferred by many customers? If not, you should gear up using GoToAssist.


Yes, the next phase in social support is here. Start offering instant, live support to your customers using customer-initiated support on your social media page. With GoToAssist, you can let your customers decide how they contact you for support. Enable your customers to request assistance directly from your Facebook page.

How it works … Your customer merely needs to click a send button on your Facebook page and an available support representative is pinged. When the rep accepts the support session, the customer and rep are instantly connected via chat. If the support rep is unable to resolve the customer’s issue in a chat conversation, they can escalate the session into a full screen-sharing remote support session to view and control the customer’s desktop.


What if the customer is on their mobile device? Not to worry. GoToAssist is also capable of supporting several mobile devices too. Visit GoToAssist Remote Support or GoToAssist Corporate to view our mobile support capabilities and list of mobile devices supported.
