Connect Help Scout & Livestorm

Help Scout is a customer success management software, it provides a help desk, documentation, mailboxes, etc. The Livestorm Help Center is powered by Help Scout for example. They also offer to embed a Beacon on your site so customers can find answers or contact your team without ever leaving the page.

By connecting Livestorm and Help Scout together, you can add your Beacon to your Livestorm Registration pages, your Company page and your on-demand event rooms. This is useful if they have questions about your product, your company or just need some help. It has shown a significant impact on the registration conversion rate.
