Customer messaging platform.

Intercom Integration

Intercom is an in-app messaging platform used by many businesses for customer support, onboarding, and engagement. It supports email and live chat, as well as offers a responsive helpdesk and knowledge-base for quick query resolution of the customers. If building long-lasting customer relationships while driving business growth is your goal, then Intercom is a must-have app in your marketing stack.

What You Can Do with Intercom

  • Use intelligent chatbots to identify your best leads and convert them into your customers
  • Send tailored onboarding messages, in-app campaigns, and engage with your leads effectively
  • Understand your customers better, based on their in-app behavior
  • Improve your CSAT score by reducing the contact to resolution times
  • Keep a record of the past support interactions with your users
  • Maintain a consolidated knowledge base to help improve the productivity of your team

Setting up Intercom manually requires you to insert their JavaScript snippet in all pages, or install and configure their iOS and Android SDKs for your mobile apps. In addition, you need to implement event tracking in order to send your customer data and event data to Intercom directly. Exporting your Intercom data into a data warehouse involves setting up a dedicated ETL system as well – requiring you to pull the data from the Intercom APIs, transform it and then load it to the warehouse of your choice.

With RudderStack, you need not worry about all these challenges. A simple integration with Intercom takes care of all of the above tasks.
