Pros

I love using this software and it's fun to use and see yourself improving your typing skills.
It's a very nice thing to add to your site, it helps for your customers, I used it a few times when I needed help or had questions.
Great, very easy, love the platform and customization, it is simple to manage and its also looks very professional.

Pros

I love how it makes our tasks easier and we're excited to discover more of its other features that we can use in our other lines of business.
We care about the individual approach to the customer, and HelpDesk supports us in this. Thanks to the teams, the customer can be assigned to the appropriate department.
The experience has been very positive and we will continue to use HelpDesk as we have had many benefits from it.

Cons

They should fix some system problems that occur sometimes and this cuts the connection. We didnt have ant other problem.
It created significantly more problems than one would expect at such prices. The system was buggy, call members would drop frequently, and problems persisted in a variety of locations and atmospheres.
The ticket management seems to be a little confusing sometimes, and sometimes tickets go unresolved from poor notifications.

Cons

There is an obvious lack of control over training, nuances can be lost. Customers may find it too impersonal.
Emails get caught in Spam sometimes when they aren't spam.
It is sometimes difficult to find some old tickets.

Great chat feature for the Helpdesk

Reviewed 3 years ago

We are very pleased with how well LiveChat has worked for us and fit our needs.

Pros

We have integrated LiveChat with our ticketing system and we use it very often to solve a number of Helpdesk issues. It's well designed and works great with IOS, Android, PC, or Mac. The pricing is also very reasonable.

Cons

We like to use automated messages and those were not quite right to fit our needs at our Helpdesk.

LiveChat is helpful for customer care

Reviewed 2 years ago

Overall my experience with LiveChat has been great! I have been able to quickly respond to customers with custom canned replies.

Pros

This product is fairly easy to use and integrate for your business. It has a knowledge base feature and option to chat on demand or respond to tickets at a later time.

Cons

There is a disconnect between LiveChat and HelpDesk - the canned replies have to be entered separately into both locations which causes extra work.

I can quickly respond to consumer inquiries via LiveChat

Reviewed 13 days ago

We recently used Livechat's Twilio and Calendly integrations to send messages to consumers' mobile phones and organize sales appointments. Everything described up to this point can be executed without ever leaving the Livechat interface.

Pros

Among the several software programs I've used, Livechat has the most robust integration features. By incorporating third-party apps into our regular Livechat sessions, we have been able to enrich our interactions with the service.

Cons

Because it goes above and beyond what I'd expect from helpdesk software, LiveChat has all the features I could want for my staff.

Simply the best software in its style

Reviewed 5 years ago

I think the application is designed mainly for large companies, because for small companies the cost is not justified but the communication between users and support staff has been the best

Pros

It is very easy to use for both Helpdesk staff and users, it is friendly and intuitive. It's easy to find tutorials on the internet

Cons

I can´t think of many things that I don´t like but I would like the application to introduce the phone call option, sometimes it is good to complete the support in this way

Livechat defines simplicity.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

SIMPLICITY : Livechat has a simple and intuitive user environment which makes it easy for new users both on the part of helpdesk agents and web visitors to pick up the workings of the software in a matter of minutes. SOCIAL INTEGRATION : Via Livechats social integration feature ,our users can now communicate with us right from our Facebook fan page. EFFECTIVE CUSTOMER SUPPORT TEAM : Livechats helpdesk support staffs are always eager and available to assist us for everytime we ran into hurdles while using this software . The good part is ,they are available 24 hours a day and they motivate our own helpdesk team to want to do better.

Cons

Livechat does a perfect job .However I have got reservation regarding the mobile app. As it appears to be too simple.Currently ,the helpdesk team can only respond to chats via the app. and for every other need like responding to customer ticket ,checking out agent profiles , checking out website analytic etc user have to login to Livechat from the pc.

Perfect application for direct communication

Reviewed a month ago

It's been a great experience so far. We've had hundreds of chats every week. I highly recommend adding ChatBot and HelpDesk if you do it though.

Pros

It was pretty easy to setup and it can be used on other sites and platforms in the event of switching to another store. It's also easy to use and greatly helps with our customer service team.

Cons

The desktop application isn't that great for Windows. It can get buggy at times, so I just use it in the browser.

bad ticketing system

Reviewed 6 years ago

All here are talking on Chat feature, that is really nice comparing to available on the earth! It's not the complete solution to customer support requirement. Need to use another helpdesk solution for ticketing and email reply. Ticketing system is really bad, no separate canned reply available, need to use same available in chat. The reply emails can't be customized and very "old n ugly" interface...

Pros

chat is instant, fast reply and appropriate geo-location.

Cons

Ticket system is really need "good modern interface" updation. Customization options are not available for ticket system. Need to work hard on ticketing seriously, comparing to helpdesk, desk.com or groove

Vendor response

I'm sure there are improvements that can be made. Thank you for the detailed review, Manoj. ps. If you are looking for certain canned responses we suggest using a grouping system. Something like a prefix before an initial canned response. t_ (for tickets - #t_sales) and/or c_ (for chats -#c_chats). This way, you will narrow down the list of available tags.

Great live support software

Reviewed 4 years ago

I worked at salesforce when this was implemented on our helpdesk team. It was a great boon to us, but it did not drive down call volume.

Pros

Allows end users to reach a new venue of support within your organization. In general, technicians can handle more chats than calls so it does serve to lower effort. Easy to integrate into salesforce.

Cons

The software works great, but can cause issues if the staffing requirements aren't also kept up with. In my experience this doesn't reduce call volume, it reduces ticket volume - people who would otherwise4 submit tickets about things that were less urgent will instead chat.

I like Livechat's Facebook integration. Courtesy of this ,our customers are now able to communicate with my company's helpdesk team via our Facebook page. Since we began using this feature early in the year ,we have seen a steady increase in the number of customer chats we respond to on a daily basis.

Cons

I will like to see Livechat improve on the Livechat mobile app. My personal opinion is that this app. is way too basic for customer service ,as we are only able to communicate via chat using the Livechat app. For every other thing we need to do on Livechat ,we must do it via the Livechat website.

Reviewed 2 months ago

Livechat provides us with a simplified and low-resource cost way to engage our customers enquiries across multiple sales channels. Livechat ensure that our sales team is always a click away from potential customers.

Pros

Livechat daily data summary notifications are crucial to having a snapshot idea of the day to day performance of my team , as regards responding to customers enquiries across our product mobile applications and every social media platform where we use Livechat , as our helpdesk solution. The data summary sent by Livechat provides information like the total number of chats our agents attended to over the past 24 hour period, the number of missed chats , percentage of satisfied and dis-satisfied customers etc

Cons

There is no feature that I will like to see, that Livechat does not already provide. For myself and my team , I think we are happy with the quality that we have been able to extract from Livechat.

No Helpdesk solution beats Livechat.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Livechat has helped my organization grow its email marketing list via its integration with Mailchimp. Primarily,Livechat has led to reduced bounce rate on our website and also a faster response time to customer complaints.

Pros

Livechat is the most intuitive Helpdesk solution I have tried.It has got a reliable support team for companies and organizations using it.I like the regular email newsletters sent to users by Olga Kolodynska of Livechat ; these newsletters provides insights into newer ways via which we can maximize Livechat to close more sales ,reduce website bounce rate and increase revenue for my organization. I also like how I am able to respond to tickets opened by our customers by simply replying to the email notification sent by Livechat as against logging into the Livechat interface itself.

Cons

Inability to respond to tickets via the mobile app.At the current time,the Livechat smartphone app. Is only used to chat with web visitors.There is no way to transfer chats ,or even make use of the canned response feature via the Livechat app.

The most feature packed support solution.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Setting up Livechat is as simple as copying the Livechat html code provided to new users during the signup process and pasting into the html section of your website code and you are good to go. Livechat is the most feature packed helpdesk support solution out there .It integrates with the most popular CRM solutions out there like Salesforce and Microsoft dynamics. I like how every chat conversation between support agents and web visitors are archived for future referencing. The sneak peek feature puts support agents one step ahead of website visitors ,by letting them see real life what a visitor is typing ; even before it is sent.

Cons

I dislike how basic the Livechat mobile app. is ,only allowing chat conversations between agents and website visitors. Also we are unable to delete message archives ,except we contact Livechat and they delete it from their end.

CHAT TRANSCRIPTS - Livechat backs up every message conversation between the helpdesk team and visitors to our website .Ensuring we are able to generate data from these conversations or do reviews of our customer care team by simply going through past conversations. Also web visitors are also able to automatically get the chat transcript sent to their email address. VISITOR BANNING - Livechat provides us with the means to ban provocative visitors on our website for a number of period. CUSTOMER SERVICE - It has a 24/7 customer support team ,who are always available to assist users and whom I rate as amongst the best in the software industry.

We've used Salesforce Service Cloud, Zendesk, Groove and a slew of others. The team at Helpdesk has built a functionally rich solution that doesn't require a degree to understand how to operate. We're able to manage tickets in a clean and visually minimal environment and get information without needing to execute multiple clicks. Definitely recommend this solution for teams of all sizes.

Pros

Super easy to get up and running and start managing customer support inquiries. The support team at HelpDesk is very attentive in addressing any questions.

Cons

Tighter integration with LiveChat when we selected the software would have been great, but that has since been rolled out.

Pros

Integration and customization are very easy. You can be up and running in no time.

Cons

Using LiveChat and Helpdesk still feels a little too separated, agents, tags, and canned responses do not carry from one to the other.

Superb Product but lacking some features

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

It's easy to understand and aesthetically pleasing to work in.

Cons

It lacks some of the more advance features that more mature Helpdesk solutions offer. The integration with their livechat product is weak and essentially worthless.

Vendor response

Hi Rex, Thank you for your feedback! We do our best to create the best help desk experience for our customers and to constantly improve our product. We want HelpDesk to be simple to learn and use. Some more advanced features would not correlate with delivering our core value. If you don't mind, we will be in touch to collect a few more information regarding LiveChat integration. Cheers, HelpDesk Team

Seemless integration

Pros

Having come from not using any email managment software (only Outlook), the tool has prived invaluable. It integrates seemlessly with the livechat product, which we also use and provides a wealth of data which we could only dream of before. It is easy to use, ease to train out and super easy to implement

Cons

Nothing difficult, I would like more data reports but I'm sure that will come in timr

We definitely use the ticketing every day and it is easy enough to use. Now that the pricing schema has changed, we are much less happy because we have to pay for LiveChat which we only use as user interface on the website and the HelpDesk pricing is slightly too high in our view.

Pros

The integration was pretty easy, and the reliability is great, we never had one failure in 3+ years of using it. The support team is great and reacts almost immediately.

Cons

- Lack of a proper mobile app- when used in a mobile browser, almost impossible to use- no plugin for WordPress- we have to use LiveChat as well although we don't want it, as it has a WordPress plugin and HelpDesk does not. So we have to manage two environments.

The best HelpDesk for small business website owners

Reviewed a year ago

Customer Support was hard to get a hold of through Shopify App and took over a week to get help and then was told I cannot use my HelpDesk on Shopify I would have to start over with a new account.

Pros

Features, layout, tags, spam blocking, email signature in outgoing emails, domain verification for outgoing emails so it has our email address

Cons

You can not integrate with Shopify unless you start a whole new account with a different domain and email then you have to start all over from scratch. Very disappointed as I have an integration with LiveChat but HelpDesk is separate for some reason in Shopify and they are the same company.
