I wish to set up a server to handle one simple task - live communication between our offices and our many clients throughout the country. Similar to the 'chat live now with one of our associates' feature available on many websites, I wish live communication and the ability to utilize multiple operators and multiple sessions. However, this will not be an add on feature to an existing website - rather than random visitors simply surfing in, I wish for my existing clients to be able to communicate live and directly with our offices via a basic installed terminal/portal, or via simple software or code added to their existing sales terminals. I wish for this communication to be initiated with a simple one step click and if possible include a text form that allows basic specifics about the communication to be transferred along with the communication alert. AND I wish all of this accomplished without the client first signing on to the internet via a commercial provider and browser and then navigating to a website. Will need to know not only costs involved in programming and set up server-side, but additionally what will be needed at each front end client/user location.
