  • Each of the bots streamlines response times.
  • With HubSpot's high level of customization, it is possible to create multiple inboxes that can handle different types of channels associated with the same company. This factor makes it friendly for both small businesses and large corporate consortiums.
  • Executives will have more time to work in other areas while HubSpot's personalized chats keep in touch with leads. 
  • HubSpot chats also have the function of providing valuable content to leads, to further nurture them in their awareness, consideration, and decision processes.
