Connect Kissmetrics With Help Scout to Track Customer Activity

Kissmetrics is an analytics tool for tracking activity throughout a customer's lifecycle. Integrating with Help Scout will allow you to track conversation actions along with the other metrics you're tracking for your customers. 

This app logs four different events from Help Scout to your Kissmetrics account:

  • Customer starts a new conversation
  • Help Scout user responds to the customer
  • Customer replies to an existing conversation
  • Help Scout user closes the conversation

Logging these events set the foundation for some great reports in Kissmetrics. Not only will you have response time, but you can start to quantify things like cost and agent productivity, and tie those metrics to specific properties that are unique to your own business.
