Welcome to the expanding world of Messaging and the infinite possibilities eGain Messaging Hub™ offers your business.

eGain has rearchitected its platform to handle the messaging channels in a new way. eGain Customer Engagement Hub™, the platform that unifies knowledge, AI, analytics, and conversations to ensure that no channel is left in a silo, also powers the eGain Messaging Hub.

eGain’s novel Bring Your Own Bot (BYOB)™ architecture allows businesses to easily plug in their own bots where desired in the messaging journey. At the same time, those who want a turnkey solution for conversational automation can activate eGain’s Virtual Assistant. Conversation control can be handed off seamlessly across multiple bots and human agents, while delivering a smart experience to consumers.Diagram showing the eGain Messaging Hub
