Huge platform with many possibilties.

I have been using LiveAgent for a couple years and find it an excellent choice, you will be able to easily keep tabs on clients. If you work with a team it brings many gamification badges and all kinds of professional ticket routing features. It also includes many reporting features which are important to keep tabs on how your team and clients are working. LiveAgent also includes many automation possibilities through both no-code SaaS such as Zapier and their own API/Webhooks and Rules automations.

Pros

I mostly use LiveAgent to keep email tickets for my support contracts. However I can see the huge potential it brings as a full-fledged, omni-channel helpdesk platform. LiveAgent will let you pick and choose which features you use. For example, you can use their live-chat widgets, or you can connect a voice ip line to take calls. It can even handle contact forms. In any case, client information will be readily available for a better support experience.

Cons

As functional as the web platform is, they are a bit stagnant on modern working life. For example, logging into two browsers will close the session on one side, and their mobile App on iOS doesn't send notifications if you are AFK on your computer. The app is not very friendly. Knowledge base pricing seems a bit high for what I believe is a very simple feature.

Reasons for Switching to LiveAgent

Using osTicket required supporting the infrastructure, which took time from the main mission of supporting clients.

Perfect Zendesk alternative

Pros

All in one solution with a universal inbox – all tickets and chats are managed from one place. Hybrid ticket stream is perfect, the conversation started with a live chat can continue seamlessly by e-mail. Call center integration looks very interesting too, but we did not use it yet. We have switched from Zendesk, LiveAgent offers all we need, it is easy to use and much more better priced than Zendesk which was one of the main reason why to switch from Zendesk. We can recommend LiveAgent to everyone who is looking for a Zendesk alternative with lower costs. Customer support is perfect. Configurable chat widgets is also a perfect feature!

Cons

Nothing crucial, but Action initiator condition in rules doesn't work, this bug is reported for a few weeks, but still not fixed. Web page design with online ticket seems a little bit outdated.

Reasons for Switching to LiveAgent

Better value for the money, Zendesk is too expensive for more users.

Improved productivity

Overall, I’m happy with the software. It’s improved our response times and made our agents more productive.

Pros

- Many useful and versatile features (our favorite are the universal inbox and automation rules) - Full-service call center - Integrations with tools we use daily - If we have any questions or are stuck, the support gets back to us very quickly

Cons

There are some integrations that could use a little work. For example, the Viber integration allows us to answer messages, but it doesn’t let us reach out to customers proactively.

Significant Value for the price

Pros

Price, Excellent customer support, large amount of features and functionality

Cons

While I love the complete control of all the automated systems being programmable, it could use some additional default built in options. Comparing LiveAgent to competitors like ZenDesk is like comparing Linux to Apple. LiveAgent gives you complete control - but you have to set up everything. The other software out there doesn't let you customize, but everything works for you. An in between 'windows' option that allows control for those who want it but is smoother to set up for those who don't want the extra work would be optimal. That said, programs that do it for you tend to cost a lot more, which would defeat LA's primary value, the low cost.

Reasons for Choosing LiveAgent

Price, functionality, control

Reasons for Switching to LiveAgent

Able to bring in information, sales channels, and customers from what was previously multiple products into one centralized system

Dear Ben, thank you for your honest feedback! We really appreciate it! :) The reason why LiveAgent was developed in a way that you have to set the majority of things up is so that it would work for each client exactly how they need. Usually, businesses differ from one to another and that is why we wanted to give everybody a chance to adjust it to their business and needs. You know where to find us should you need anything! :)

Great ticketing system

Been using it in the past for a travel agency now for a HR recruiting company, for $15/month you won't get anything better than that!

Pros

Functionality, tags, time rules, syncing with facebook leads, able to add VOIP phone. Can set up folders like an email account too, keeping notes. Customer support is brilliant.

Cons

The only thing that I would add is a drive folder for files On top of that it takes some time to set it up, not that simple but if you have thhe patient to learn it you will see how great it is.

Reasons for Switching to LiveAgent

I've used Zoho and other CRM's none of them was as good in my opinion
