Excellent & Affordable Support App without a "per agent" fee.


I've been using SupportBee since September 2013 and really love it. The pricing model is different from most other Support Ticketing Apps in that you are charged based on volume of support tickets and not on the number of agents. This pricing model means that it's more beneficial and affordable for small businesses where few people were many hats, as one of those 'hats' is doing support. It has all of the essential features that the other established support ticketing companies offer with their apps. And whenever I had a question or issue, I was given a quick and thorough answer by the owner himself.


- Pricing model is based on volume of tickets, not based on number of agents - Is an "inbox" style of ticketing system. (Customers only need to click reply) - Great after-sales support from the owner - Does not require my support team to be logged into a separate app to answer tickets. They can do it directly from their inbox if they wanted to - Allows me to forward a support email from a customer (which was sent to my direct email address), and it will generate a ticket on behalf of the original sender. *AND* it parses it correctly when sent from my iphone --- This is a HUGE benefit!


like Help Scout does, but when I asked for this feature, I was told it is on their future roadmap.
