Zopim Software


 

Zopim is a Web-based live chat solution that is designed for small and midsize enterprises and offers live chat, triggered chat and chat analytics within a unified solution.

Zopim allows agents and sales representatives to remotely engage with website visitors. The solution offers triggered chat functionality in which agents can automatically initiate a live chat session if a visitor gets stuck on a page or needs assistance with something.

With reporting and a dashboard feature, users can monitor agent and chat performance and get a complete view of the customer engagement process. This helps them to analyse and generate feedback regarding customer experience.

Other features include chat transfer between agents, file transfer and integration with customer relationship management (CRM) systems such as Zendesk, Salesforce and Zoho.

Pros

Zopim was easy to implement and the look of the widget for our website looks great. If you are just using this to talk to people who have questions through the zopim dashboard, this is a great tool for you.

Cons

When I tried connecting this through api to our CRM, the data fields and the conversation get mashed together. It makes the conversation messy and difficult to read in the CRM which is why we aren't using it anymore.

User friendly, organized, simple, colors are relaxed and inviting. The "visitor" feature is great, looking up chat history comes in handy

Cons

As the one using the software to chat with multiple clients at a time, an issue is the appearance of the conversation could look very congested at times. Formatting and spacing might be needed

I use it on several of my websites, really good live chat app.

Pros

Easy of use, great options, plenty of ways to customize and the best part for me is the fact that it is free, and if one needs to move past the free tier service, there are well priced options to choose from.

Cons

You can only setup one free account per e-mail address, it would be nice to have at least three free users per e-mail. Specially for small companies, that are interested in providing this option on their websites.

It is very easy to implement on all of your websites (ie main site, ecommerce store). The chat is reliable and quick . .there is no lag time I've experienced with other chat softwares.

It's more expensive than some of the options that have almost as many features. It can be tricky to get the pop up box working just right so it's available but not annoying.

Someone's cheap idea of importing chat into games and programs, Needs some real coders to either implement it or fix the codeing.

Pros

chat box loads, It seems to be inexpensive. I love the fact that they force you to write 100 characters trying to make their product look good when it clearly has faults

Cons

sloppy loading Titles are sometimes loaded TTEXT messages like >>>waiting for us30.zopom.com << block the chat box so you can not see what your typing in full screen. when mousing over it switches to the other side until you move the cursor off then it automatically goes back over the chatbox

Pros

We implemented this chat feature shortly after I started at the company. It is hands down the best decision I have made in my first year working for the company. People want instant answers, Zopim ensures they get it and lets you start a conversation before they go looking for answers elsewhere

Cons

Took a bit of time to set up and understand the pop-ups. Could be very annoying if your website was one that people consistently came back to

A perfectly usable product that somehow still leaves me wanting. Tough to put my finger on it, but I simply don't love the design and function. Everything is there, it just isn't presented in a particularly attractive way.

The default alert sounds are really goofy. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to change them or not.

Zopim has all the features we need for providing excellent live chat support to our website visitors. We use triggers to proactively engage with visitors, which will often lead to new chats and more sales. The free version is excellent for a small business with only one support agent, but Zopim offers other reasonably priced plans as well.

Likes Least

I wish the widget's appearance were able to be customized a little more.

Recommendations

If you have only one support agent, start with the free version. If you have a bigger team or would like more features such as triggers, try one of the other plans.

Successful experience. Zendesk Chat is my daily ally to provide proper aid to our visitors

Pros

Zendesk chat is a valuable tool for help desk. It allows providing information and support to your users in real-time.

You can constantly monitor your visitors seeing the active ones, the idle ones and also the ones who opened the live chat tool. You may also see their referrals.

By opening the panels of users visiting your sites you get many information about the pages they are on and all the ones they have seen. You may also viwe their IP, the browser they are using, their location and other useful information about their devices.

Each visitor has thier history. If you already had contact with someone you can easily check your conversation history seeing the agent and the transcriptions. The conversation could be sent via email.

During a conversation you may share attachment with the users and request a rating for your support.

You can create and save standard answers (shortcuts) that can be quickly recalled while writing in the editor. You can also set up specific triggers to notify users activities.


With some plans you have specific insights to compare performance across multiple agents.

Cons

Some useful features are only available for the professional plan (tracking visitors and conversion analytics). If you have other third party to monitor them, you will be fully satisfied by the other plans.

We've been using Zendesk Chat since it was Zopim. And while it's not the cheapest customer service chat out there, we've stuck with it, since it provides great integration to Zendesk, allows for shortcuts, integration of chatbots, and many more features.

Pros

Great integration with Zendesk (and all of its features)
Simplicity and ease of use for the customer

Cons

Not the cheapest solution out there
Using more than the most basic features can require some effort on the admin side

My website caters to Chinese students and using this app makes it easier for the support agents to handle chat support as it automatically translates everything in Chinese.

I liked that I could set rules to engage chats with my website visitors and to track whom was on my website. I also liked that I could change with my team internally within the platform before transferring a chat or just talking to another team member in regards to a current chat on checking a customers account or ticket. I liked that I could design my chat widget the way I wanted it to look of course with the Zendesk chat branding

Cons

The only thing I did not like was that I could not have the business hours on the free plan.

I used as customer and usually share my views and queries on chat. Agents sometimes do not able to get quick decisions and this make irritate.

Pros

It's always a good option when one faces any issue with any services. Quick answers to the questions help customer to take decision and help service provider as well to provide better service and to know about the customer view and the issue faced by users. Some time people feel shy to talk on call and avoid to use mails for communication. Then chat works affectively at that stage.

Cons

Sometimes time chat message miscommunicate the information which creates problems for both sides. And service provider get less time to think about the solution for users.

Pros

We've been zendesk chat for almost 3 years now without any issues.
The free version itself gives most of the basic functionality. But if your service is vast, and requires multiple executives to attend to chat queries, the free version may be limiting.
Zendesk is very easy to configure on your application and very intuitive.

Cons

The paid version of the tool is a bit costly so the startups in early stage may not want to use it.
Happens very seldom, but there may be minor issues such as the chat window getting hung and responses delayed. But no big issues.
The free version will not give ability to rebrand the chat window - which is reasonable as well.

Pros

If you’re looking to increase customer satisfaction, customer engagement, and or increase sales conversion rates, Zendesk Chat is the perfect solution for you. Aside from the wonderful customer support, this application can greatly help your sales and marketing team gain a better understanding for what is providing the most traffic, your visitor’s interest, what they aren’t interested in, and gain more insight into which of your sales and marketing initiatives are working. If you want to succeed in today’s market, it’s paramount you have a streamline for how your organization handles incoming sales and lead generation. The ability to chat in real-time is easier on both, your web visitors and sales teams; according to Zendesk, adding the chat feature to your website can provide up to 3x more in sales than traditional cold calling and sales emails (which most of us probably hate receiving…)

PROS
This platform has helped us reach more customers without all the same busywork that goes into having to create, beautifully crafted sales emails that often reside in spam folders or get deleted at a speedy rate. Not only does Zendesk’s chat allow you to interact with customers in-real time, it provides more visibility into the needs of your visitors; with the ability to see which pages your visitors are on and can customize each chat to directly suite each visitor. I would highly recommend Zendesk’s team plan for small sized businesses; which only costs a minimum fee /month, per agent. Small-sized businesses often have one person simultaneously managing customer support duties, sales duties, marketing duties, or some mix of the sort (time is of the essence); Zendesk will help ease your responsibilities so you can focus on more important matters. With the ability to manage chats directly with in the online platform and/or the mobile app you have more opportunities to engage with potential clients and keep them from falling through the cracks. The features this application provides are intuitive and helpful for multitasking; the lite plan provides two trigger signals you can set up to notify you when someone enters or exits your website and/or you can turn your chat to offline so visitors can still contact you when you’re away and notify them you will be in touch shortly. The option to file share and create/save templated responses, within the chat, aids customer satisfaction and saves times from having to leave the platform to send an email, call, etc.

Side note: Because our company uses third party called Lead Liaison to track our web visitors we decided to purchase a subscription for the team plan. I would recommend the same to others who already have other resources in place for visitor tracking; if you don’t have visitor tracking in place the professional plan may be the more beneficial route for you.

Cons

Zendesk’s features for conversion analytics and tracking rates are not included in either the lite or team plan. This is one of its downfalls. However, if you are using another third party for visitor tracking (to see how often visitors make a purchase, sign up for downloads, webinars, and/or newsletters, etc.) you most likely already have those statistics available to you.

I would recommend the professional plan over the lite plan for those interested in using this platform to measure or compare performance across multiple agents; the professional plan presents more, in-depth data regarding customer service and/or meeting specific sales goals/objectives.

I hope in the future Zendesk will incorporate an unlimited amount of history recognition so that you can look back at past conversations with returning customers, etc.

In an organization like ours where customers communicate with the sales team via multiple mediums, it used to be very difficult to effectively track Workflow. With Zendesk chat ,we have been able to create an effective customer service workflow via which we have been able to track all customer queries in real time.
Web visitors chatting with our Live chat team are also able to add attachments via the chat window , saving precious time that would had been otherwise expended sending attachments as via email.
Zendesk has also enabled customers get a copy of their chat session with our sales agents in their inbox for record purposes.

Cons

Our sales agents have made complaints on few occasions about the Zendesk smartphone app. sending new chat notifications a few seconds or even minutes late.

We were able to increase customer satisfaction by giving real time support for our VPN software product. The chat connections were very stable and reliable even when our clients would click away from us and turn on their VPN which would affect their IP address. We also understood what part of the world chats were coming from which explained language barrier issues that we may encounter

Pros

The software allowed pre-programmed responses that would save our agents much time when dealing with clients. It was overall easy to configure and use and it saved many clients as they didn't have to wait for responses back to emails.

Cons

This is no longer an issue but back when the software was owned by Zopim, it ran on flash ( years ago ) which would sometimes cause performance issues in my browser. This is no longer an issue .
