With the new update in HubSpot's Service Hub Professional, customizing your inbox has never been this easy. By creating custom views based on ticket and conversation properties, you can prioritize the right messages and increase productivity. Whether you need to sort by priority, category, or any other parameter, you can now easily create a custom view that suits your needs. 

Customer Portal
Customer empowerment is key to providing exceptional service. That's why HubSpot's Service Hub Professional now offers a secure customer portal function that puts the power in your customers' hands. With this function, your customers can log in and manage their support tickets with ease. From viewing to opening and even replying to their tickets, your customers can now experience your service on their own terms. 

Channel Switching
Customers expect seamless and authentic interactions with businesses. Service Hub’s omni-channel customer service is pivotal. Chat agents can now switch communication channels from live chat or Facebook Messenger to email, while keeping the conversation open and on the same thread. This enables businesses to provide a more personalized experience for their customers, making it easier to switch between communication channels and maintain continuity in conversations.

Post Chat Feedback
Customer feedback is invaluable. Getting customer feedback is made easy with the latest update. Chat agents can now send customer satisfaction surveys to customers via live chat, enabling them to receive instant and valuable feedback. This will help businesses improve their overall chat strategy, measure their team's effectiveness, and refine individual chat performance. By incorporating customer feedback into chat interactions, businesses can enhance their customer service, increase customer satisfaction, and foster long-term customer relationships.

Custom Surveys
Customer feedback also helps businesses improve their products or services.HubSpot's Service Hub has introduced a game-changing update that enables businesses to solicit tailored feedback through custom surveys. This feature includes the ability to  develop questions, use star ratings, radio selects, and single-line text fields to gather the precise feedback needed from customers. By leveraging custom surveys, businesses can demonstrate their commitment to their customers' needs and preferences, personalize their offerings, and build brand loyalty.

As businesses strive to meet their customers' ever-increasing expectations, it's essential to have a robust service level agreement (SLA) in place. The latest update in HubSpot's Service Hub empowers businesses to prioritize incoming customer requests based on importance and urgency, ensuring that their team is meeting their customers' expectations. With SLAs, businesses can set working hours, build in automation, and report on attainment. This helps businesses to streamline their operations, automate repetitive tasks, and meet service level commitments with ease. 

Service Analytics
Effective customer service is essential for any business, and having access to industry-standard analytics can help to uncover key insights that drive better decision-making. That's why HubSpot's Service Hub now offers out-of-the-box reports that provide businesses with the data they need to deliver efficient and authentic customer service. With Service Analytics, businesses can instantly unlock insights and resolve customer issues quickly, all while maintaining high standards of service delivery. This insightful update helps businesses to streamline their customer service processes, identify areas for improvement, and make data-driven decisions to enhance customer satisfaction.
