What is an Asynchronous Messaging?
Asynchronous messaging is a form of communication that does not utilize direct live connection, allowing people from both ends to freely initiate, pause, resume, or end the conversation on their own terms. Most customers use this method of communication when they do not need an immediate response from a brand.
The traditional ways of reaching customer service through live platforms, such as phone calls and live chat, are still important in many scenarios. However, the multitasking nature of the modern world often compels people to find ways to interact with a brand without necessarily disrupting their daily routines. With asynchronous messaging, customers can connect with a brand through their preferred platform and proceed with their more important tasks while waiting for a response.« Back to Glossary Index
