Fantastic Live Chat software

Rafael dos Santos, CEO Room in the Moon, author and guest travel writer at Brazilian News Newspaper20th of October, 2014 08:29

I can't recommend it well enough! It's great, easy to use and the stats are super useful. I highly recommend it.

Great Site Extension!

Alicia Dunlap, Kay-Twelve.com & Martin Public LLC.11th of September, 2014 08:28

We have been using Live Chat for a year now and absolutely love it! We have tried other live chat clients such as Olark and Zopim but ended up coming back to Live Chat because it was so user friendly and had all of the capabilities we need to help us be successful. If you have an e-commerce platform, I highly recommend this chat client, it has helped us double our conversion rate since we have started using it.

Love LiveChat

Tim Holladay, Crowd Mics co-founder (turning phones into mics), Entrepreneur, Husband, Dad, treadmill desk enthusiast2nd of September, 2014 23:34

Every startup website should have LiveChat! We have been amazed at the connections we have gained from implementing this incredibly powerful yet simple tool on our site. And with the LiveChat mobile app, we chat with people on our website right from our phones, like we are texting. It's very simple yet has all the functionality we need. This tool has brought us business we would not have received otherwise. Big fans!

Terrible Support

JHALE28th of March, 2014 15:27

I called their support line and the rep told me he would not help, I would need to chat. So I chatted with the same guy online. His service skills went from bad to worse! Bottom-line, our company is now leaving LiveChat and going with another vendor because this company clearly does not value or care about customers.

Response from LIVECHAT Software


We are sorry that this one contact with our support rep ended up this way. We focus on keeping happiness scores of our customers on a high level. This accident will make us pay closer attention to the negative voices we might be hearing. If you ever decide to give us another chance, we promise a great customer service experience!

Where it counts!

Stefan P1st of November, 2013 21:55

I'd have to agree with the previous reviewer, there are some annoyances... However, to rate it so harshly ... I wholeheartedly feel you've done the blokes at LiveChat an injustice. Did you really way up the Pros & Cons? No matter how you stack up in the chain, credit where credit is due - particularly considering how important these channels of traffic can be. Here it is folks, LiveChat has provided more in ROI than any other direct channel - implemented on/off site. Factor around that as you may, theres no denying the facts.

prior Livechat version was more user friendly

Flores5th of September, 2013 14:55

The prior Livechat version was more user friendly and resourceful.

Great LiveChat tool

Aleksandra5th of September, 2013 05:32

It's a great tool for customer support with a clear overview of staff performance and friendly software. A great number of features is a benefit, however client for support agents has space for improvement.

We didn't even feel the need to look at alternatives

Cleversolar UK17th of July, 2013 13:14

You don't often come across a product that does exactly what you want it to do, easily and at a reasonable cost, but LiveChat is exactly that! We tried the free trial, integrated it easily into our sites. Within a few weeks, we'd made the decision to subscribe, because we had increased our customer interaction and converted that to extra business. We didn't even feel the need to look at alternatives, which is unusual for us.

Simple, Easy, Best

Tony Crureir16th of July, 2013 11:55

All these features, so simple & easy to use ! I did not even bother looking for better.

This 'Chat' application is Fantastic!

Dian22nd of July, 2010 18:21

It is easy to use.
