Integrating Telegram account with Zoho SalesIQ

Integrating Telegram Channel with SalesIQ

The Telegram and Zoho SalesIQ integration helps you support your customers with their preferred communication channels. It also enables you to grow your audience by promoting your business and conversing with your visitors via the Telegram bot. You can also engage and converse with Telegram users and allow them to contact your operators instantly. Also, assist your visitors with rich media such as Images, Videos, etc.

How does it work?

  • The Telegram channel add-on can help ease the process of navigating to your website to initiate conversations.
  • The bot feature in Telegram acts as a communication bridge that allows operators to communicate their your visitors.
  • Visitors can initiate a chat request by sending a message via bot. The operator can pick up the chat from the SalesIQ chat window and assist the visitors.
  • Users can have all the chats and media securely stored in their Telegram account without being lost.
