The highlights are visitor and operator initiated chats, audio and video chats, visitor monitoring and tracking with alarm functionality, form monitoring, file transfers in both directions during chats, plugin-free co-browsing, marketing tools (push banners, URLs, messages, and customized surveys), ad-tracking of campaigns, conversion tracking, departments, a FAQ database, a customized contact form (if chat is offline), chat between operators, and an application programming interface for deep Web site integration.

    Release Notes: This version comes with a totally rewritten cobrowsing engine. Cobrowsing now works in all modern browsers and is no longer limited to your own Web site. Other alterations are visitor-specific chat invitation texts, new chat buttons, and a new auto-phrase for active chats.

      Release Notes: This release makes most of the collected statistical data available in the back-end ("admin/configuration area"). You no longer need to open the Operator Console to access this information. All back-end statistics are illustrated with interactive charts and maps. All data can be exported as CSV or Excel documents. A new "Answer Wizard" assists your operators during their chats with Web-site visitors. The wizard presents suitable replies to customer questions based on previous chats, available FAQ articles, and predefined phrases.

      •  16 Dec 2008 16:02

        Release Notes: This update comes with a completely revised remote assistance function, which allows you to remotely control a visitor's computer during a chat session. A server-side repeater component circumvents the firewall problems of the previous version. The yalst WinApp tool has also been rewritten. A new "gadget" for Windows Vista shows the current number of Web site visitors.

          Release Notes: This release simplifies the installation and update procedures by introducing an online installer.

This version also comes with minor feature enhancements, such as more detailed chat statistics.

            Cool Live Support Product with Live View of Visitors
            I have been looking for a live support program to add to my website and tried several ones. The best thing in yalst is that you can see all the user on your website and invite them to chats. And you just need your browser to do so. No installation required on your computer. On the server of course you need to install the scripts but that was straight forward using the Online-Installer and the webbased setup. The documentation was very helpful too. The product has a lot of features which you don't need normally but it is good to know that they are there. Besides the chat functions a lot of statistics, the CoBrowsing, an Affiliate Program and users with passwords etc. are integrated into yalst. It is much more than a chat program. And the price is ok. I highly recommend this product!
