LivePerson's Live Chat Software Powers Customer Engagement Solutions for 14 Companies on Internet Retailer's Hot 100 E-Retailers of 2012
LivePerson, Inc. (NASDAQ: LPSN), a provider of real-time chat, voice and content solutions that increase conversions and improve customer experience, today announced that its web-based customer engagement solution, LP Chat, is used by 14 of the "Hot 100" e-retailers, as recognised by Internet Retailer Magazine.
According to Internet Retailer, the Hot 100 recognises companies for their original marketing concepts, smart new navigation methods, site designs that instantly engage the visitor and groundbreaking adaptations to new online trends. Fourteen of these innovative companies, including 1-800-Flowers.com, Bluefly and SwimOutlet.com, currently leverage LivePerson's LP Chat solution as a core component of their online engagement programmes.
"We are thrilled that so many of our customers are being honoured for the innovative work they are doing to provide a superior customer experience. We're also very proud that our intelligent engagement solutions are a key part of their online and mobile strategies," said Robert LoCascio, Founder and CEO, LivePerson.
Longtime LivePerson customer, SwimOutlet.com, was also recognised as part of Internet Retailer's Top 10 Mobile list, highlighting retailers whose "mobile commerce sites and apps make shopping easy and enjoyable on smartphones and tablet computers."
