Pros

They have always been very prompt in answering questions, and helping me figure out how to do what I want with the software to create a great customer service experience for my clients.
I've been using other services to manage support tickets and live interactions for years, and I just pulled the plug on those other services. This is an excellent product at an awesome price point.
I love the way this whole software was built to help companies get a single solution to manage all the things to keep their clients happy. Such a nice tool and ease of use even for beginners.

Pros

The good overview, the easy access and very good help and quick responses from the developers for requests of new functions.
Pleasant intuitive UI, intelligent UX design. Responsive support team, lets me keep all team communication in one place for my sanity aaa.
Me and my collegues arent pleased with Soon. Soon gives us more questions then help.

Cons

The knowledge base is ugly which makes it ugly old website. As mentioned earlier it has an overwhelming amount of features which means a little learning curve.
Before I had to answer emails, social network separately and this was lost throughout the conversations which made the support very flawed and annoying.
I've been looking across several platforms to get necessary functionality, all of them either were too expensive or too complicated to setup or missed necessary features.

Cons

Sometimes there is an error, probably something with cookies so when you delete them it is fixed.
As a user, it is frustrating to not have visibility on other users' schedules. This may be an option open to administrators--I don't know).
Absolutely none, if there's something you don't like they will adjust Soon to your preferences.
