Now introducing Integration Hub (iHub)

Integration Hub (iHub) enables brand admins and LivePerson admins to explore, configure and enable integrations in a self-serve manner. It is a one-stop-shop where brand admins will discover, activate, configure and monitor integrations that power their conversational commerce journey. Integration Hub has three product arms; each arm solves a specific integration need.

  • Workflow - Unlock the power of Workflow to drive higher conversion rates, save your sales team time from having to follow up with every lead manually, drive timely payments, reduce cart abandonment and improve overall efficiency in your organization. The use cases are abundant. Workflow embeds Workato, a leading Enterprise Automation Platform, inside Conversational Cloud. Workato comes with prebuilt connectors to 1000s of applications, databases, and APIs. Brands can integrate and automate workflows across cloud and on-premise systems to drive real-time outcomes from business events. There is no coding required, and the platform utilizes Machine Learning and patented technology to make the creation and implementation of automation 10 times faster than traditional platforms.
  • Integrations - Brands will now have access to both first-party and third-party integrations within iHub.
    • LivePerson continues to collaborate with other technology providers to provide an entirely custom-built solutions. iHub will now offer complete survey integrations with Medallia and enable brands to drive the LivePerson Agent experience right within Salesforce.
    • LivePerson will also soon be offering API Integrations, where brands will be able to set up integrations, such as: surfacing various product catalog information to agents, enabling conversational sales, or including bi-directional updates on support tickets to enable conversational support. All of this will be offered in the centralized hub so that brands may use those integrations across various LivePerson features. API integration provides an interface for accessing third-party APIs, handling the API connection, authentication and API attributes mapping.
  • Widget Marketplace (coming soon) - This will enable brands to browse, configure and enable Agent Widgets, such as: Scheduling widgets (to empower agents to schedule and/or reschedule customer appointments), Translation widgets (to help agents converse with customers with different language preferences) and many more widgets into Agent Workspace in a self-serviceable manner.

The Integration Hub is a new dedicated workspace within the Conversational Cloud, available only to roles with the relevant permissions.

Integration Hub is now available to all brands and can be accessed by the icon on the side panel of the Conversational Cloud.

Benefits

  • Save time - Customers using the Integration Hub will now have access to a complete list of integrations that could be activated, configured and managed in a completely self-service manner. Customers will no longer have to contact brand-facing LivePerson resources (such as Professional Services or the LivePerson account teams) in order to add, enable, and configure a new integration that is readily available via Integration Hub, but rather will have a simple and clear way to manage the platform on their own.
  • Supercharge your conversational deployment - Empowers customers to drive forth the automation and personalization needed to create meaningful conversational journeys, by linking the unique capabilities and data from thousands of third party systems used by our customers.
  • Manage your integrations in one centralized place - Integration Hub makes it easy for users to find new integrations developed by LivePerson and drive more value with the platform. It provides them with a simple, hassle-free means of discovering and activating the latest integrations and features, while also giving them control over it as they can choose to enable, disable and monitor certain integrations. No more long and expensive professional services engagements to integrate systems.

iHub discovery

Conversational Cloud Left Navigation Bar

iHub can be accessed via the left navigation bar. While iHub will be available to all brands, not every user will be able to view and use it. It is role-based and was created with administrators in mind. The Administrator role will have complete access to all capabilities within iHub for all the relevant features.

Management Console - Search capabilities

New integrations that are made available in iHub will also be made searchable via the Management Console. When a user is trying to find an integration and they know the integration name, they can just type the name into the search input field and the auto-complete feature will display the relevant results. In the event that the user is not familiar with the name of the integration they are looking for, they can use popular tags or explore the feature categories presented.

Integrations and permissions

Get Started page

The “Get Started” page is a space within iHub that enables first time users to go through a complete onboarding experience with videos and information about the iHub solutions and integrations that have been enabled. Brands can also use this to provide specific inputs on desired integrations and review more content to dedicated articles for specific integrations within the Knowledge Center.

Integrations page

This page is where brands can enable either out-of-the-box integrations that LivePerson has enabled with its technology partners, or additional integrations where brands can connect to other 3rd-party systems of choice.

Workflow page

The Workflow page, powered by Workato, provides brands with a completely embedded experience with access to a Workato tenant that is created for the brand to access the over 1000+ pre-built connectors to provide complete automation to power up more conversational journeys. This will allow brands access to the Proactive connector in Workato to enable different Conversational triggers for Proactive messaging initially, but in the future, this will be enhanced with additional LivePerson connectors to support additional LivePerson capabilities.

Enabling available integrations via iHub

iHub includes some initial integrations, and will include more as additional platform capabilities are released, exposing users to new integrations within the Conversational Cloud. Brands can see all of these integrations and can explore and activate the integrations within their business plan.

Permissions

While iHub will be available to all brands, not every user will be able to view and use it. It is role-based and was created with administrators in mind. The Administrator role will have complete capabilities within iHub for all the relevant integrations.

This Partner integration allows brands that use both Medallia and Liveperson to enable Medallia surveys after Liveperson agent or bot interactions. Brands can choose to use Medallia’s Conversational surveys or include a one-way Medallia web survey (URL) that could be sent within the same messaging channel to the customer. Brands will need to click on “setup” to complete the necessary request so that LivePerson and Medallia PS teams can enable this integration.
