Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • Extremely easy to install and use. The UI is clean and easy to use for the user and it's impacted our business in a very positive way.

  • It is user friendly and I really like the shortcut message options.

  • Cons

  • We did have a problem where customer support wasn't the fastest at replying.. ironic really.. but this was a one time issue, apart from that they are been great!

  • The mobile platform could use some improvements, but overall really like the software and happy we implemented it.

  • Pros

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

  • I love how it instantly creates tickets in my queue. I never miss helping someone. It is very easy to learn and operate. A fast way to connect with clients who have questions.

  • Cons

  • If you use in bulk the pricing really adds up like lots of agents you have to pay for each one - however, the ROI if you use it well and have a good product is pretty high

  • I wish there were more chat window customizations without the need of a developer. Things like being able to more fully customize language that appears in the chat window would be nice.
