LeadDesk R&D has been busy with incremental releases to improve agent and admin efficiency and help you close more deals faster.

Call or email your LeadDesk rep for more on activating LeadApps – like Giosg web chat and Remote Listener – and get the most out of your virtual contact centre.


Giosg web chat integration and multichannel enhancements

The LeadDesk platform gives third party developers great opportunities to offer you unique features for your virtual contact centre. Our open approach and secure web API mean that you can get the right solution to fit your business - as you ramp up multichannel, for example. 

Web chat is an excellent way to engage customers and increase conversions. We have been running a successful pilot with one of our web chat partners, Giosg. We are happy to announce that Giosg for LeadDesk is available as an add-on LeadApp for our customers. Read more in the LeadApps store under Admin > General Settings > LeadApps.


New LeadDesk browser-based Remote Listener

The new browser-based LeadDesk Remote Listener goes live on Wednesday, 30th September. Existing users of the application-based Remote Listener LeadApp will be able to access the new browser-based version under Admin > General Settings > Remote Listener.

The new Remote Listener enables you to listen, participate and live whisper with VoIP-based calls. It is a great tool for monitoring, performance improvement and closing deals!

Please note: The new browser-based Remote Listener is for users of LeadDesk VoIP services.
