Keep your finger on the pulse

Seamlessly switch between email and chat in your Help Scout mailbox. No need for separate tools or tabs — everything you need is one click away.

Don’t leave customers hanging

Is someone there or not? Is this chat or email? Beacon gives your customers perfect clarity, and only shows chat as an option when a real person is available to help.

  • A human, helpful experience

    Help your customers get un-stuck without leaving your website.

  • Give customers a choice

    When chat is available, people can reach out using the channel that works best for them.
