    Best live chat service

    I have been using Casengo Live Chat for a year now……..a great live chat service and the team gives very good support when issues arise.

    Next to live chat I have started using the mobile application and using the Twitter keywords……this is way more easy and useful then other tools like Hootsuite. From 1 place I can check all my keywords and interact with people.

    Keep the great work Casengo!!!

    Would recommend anybody to using their live chat service!
