LiveHelp Migration 101 – 844-292-1318 Iowa legal aid

Change is coming to LiveHelp. LivePerson is retiring its product on May 31, and Pro Bono Net is ending its longstanding relationship with that company as different states move on to new chat platforms. As of Friday, May 6th, Iowa Legal Aid has officially begun handling its LiveHelp chats via LiveChat, Inc–the chat program Iowa Legal Aid and Pro Bono Net have recommended most states consider. (PBN and ILA conducted extensive analysis of current chat options as part of an ongoing TIG project.)

In this webinar, Sam Halpert of Pro Bono Net and Eve Ricaurte of Iowa Legal Aid will share their experiences with the migration process to help other LiveHelp programs transition to LiveChat smoothly and with confidence. Sam will also prepare similar notes on the process of transitioning to Comm100, which PBN also recommended. (Sam has been supporting LHNY with its migration to the Comm100 platform.)

Iowa Legal Aid Foundation – 844-292-1318 Iowa legal aid

Iowa Legal Aid Foundation

People with nowhere else to turn – women, senior citizens, veterans, children and other low-income residents – get help from Iowa Legal Aid.
Sadly, annually more than 12,000 families were turned away or under served because we lack the resources to secure ‘Justice for All’.
The Iowa Legal Aid Foundation is dedicated to raising the funds necessary to increase and sustain the services of Iowa Legal Aid. We hope that you share our belief that hope, dignity and justice are due to all Iowans regardless of income.
