I. Description - ZaZaChat for Windows © is a User Control (Windows Class Library) that brings all the client functionality of ZaZaChat ©, commonly on the web, to your Windows .NET 2.0 applications.
There are many advantages of enabling Live Help in a windows application. Here's a small example:
Imagine a Software user being stuck on a screen, "Which button do i click?!","What do i type in this box?!", "Why doesn't it work?!!".
What does the user do? Gives up on a software? Dials the support number? Burns his computer?
Now imagine the same user being stuck on the same screen asking the same questions noticing a "Live Help" button
in the corner of the software screen. Clicks on it and gets connected immediately with Software Support department operator.
He explains to the operator the screen he is on and the problem he is facing. An operator helps the user solve the problem by explaining the screen's controls/functionality.
While in chat Operator offers upgrades and new products to the user.
