Partner - This is the term used to describe the businesses for which the SimplrFlex platform is providing customer service.

Chat - Chats are synchronous messages. This means the customer is waiting on the other end of the connection for a response. It is imperative that these customers receive quick and frequent messages.

Chat Response Time - This is similar to First Response Time, except broken out specifically for a chat. On chat conversations, response time should be under 1 minute. It is important that the customer doesn't have to wait around very long.
