Quality of support we offer customers is more efficient with Helpshift.

Helpshift has made it easier for us to respond to our customers in real time, manage tickets effectively ,gain valuable feedback and overall achieve customer satisfaction in terms of the quality of support we provide web visitors.

Pros

Helpshift was easy to pick up for me ,and I think everyone in the sales/marketing department had very little problems understanding the workings of this tool.I have also found it easy guiding new employees in the department on how to use Helpshift effectively.
I think our web visitors also find Helpshift easy to use ,as I have got very few complaints from them in terms of being able to communicate with sales agents efficiently with Helpshift. Lastly,I must commend our Helpshift chatbot ,it has eased the level of workload we face during peak time when there are hundreds of visitors on our website seeking attention ; thanks to our chatbot ,we are able to focus on web visitors with complex complaints while the chatbot addresses the simpler queries.

Cons

Helpshift provides my team with just basic analytics on our engagement with web visitors.I will like to see a broad analytics breakdown of our daily activity on Helpshift. Aesthetic-wise ,I think informations can be better arranged on the Helpshift dashboard.

Customer facing first

HelpShift has been a paradigm shift in terms of quality and up to date support for our users. Easily updatable FAQs and in-game support has been really well received by our players. Engagement is high and the easily searchable FAQs have been extremely helpful for self service support.

Pros

Helpshift is a great user experience, and integrates easily with our products.
The easily updatable FAQs have been a massive win for me over other competing products.

Cons

The analytics are thin and not quite usable.
Management of user roles is extremely limited and messy (not able to add admins to groups).
Views are a nightmare to manage as an admin and its far to easy to break them.

Good platfom to reply Mobile app support tickets, but it lacks features.

It does the basic job of getting a ticket and responding, splitting incoming tickets into queues, even classifying it with tags, but don't expect a fully developed solution like Zendesk. Helpshift is just no there yet.

Pros

The feature so far is the cod you can inject in your app to query the remote mobile device hardware and software spec that helps a lot when troubleshooting tickets received.

Cons

it totally lacks a module do some BI number crunching providing basic information like, how much time an agent spent on a ticket ? What's the agent RPH ? there are no statistics at all to help managers to improve the service quality.

Advanced Chat Portal to use

Easy accessibility, Advanced Chat Portal, Easy Chat Transfers, Agent Tag Routing, Knowledge Database Integration. Multiple Widgets.

Pros

No Ugly Pop-Up, Persistent Chat, Chat transcripts, More competent service, Instant feedback,

Cons

Not great on mobile platforms, he user interface and some of the user experience design can have some, let's say, interesting glitches. However, none of these problems affect security.

Helpshift has improved our support significantly

The service itself is of good level, especially the integration in the game is of good value. Also the different tag options make it easy to prioritize the answering of the issues. The only disadvantage of Helpshift so far was slow response to a significant issue on iOS and the difficult negotiations about renewing the contract whereby the price was increased in a non logical way. In the end this was resolved.

Pros

Easy to use in the game and quite easy integration

Artificial intelligence is the future,so is Helpshift.

Helpshift enable my organization communicate with customers more efficiently.While also assisting customers find answers to their queries and concerns faster ,without always needing to reach out to the customer service team.

Pros

In a period when it seems companies are forgetting how to build intuitive user dashboards, I am very impressed with how intuitive the Helpshift user dashboard is,therefore making it easier to use this great product.
Its ease of use has saved us important resource such as time, allowing us train new staffs on how to use Helpshift easily in a matter of hours as against days or weeks ; which is the case with most of the other software we use . Very importantly too, I love the quality of support offered my team by the Helpshift customer service desk..

Cons

We have used this for less than a six month period,however I have been satisfied with the quality of service so far.

Helpshift provides easy customer support at a cost

Pros

The best feature of this CRM is their FAQ capability for mobile apps. It wildly narrows down your customer ticket count to those who really can't self-serve. Their tags and segmenting options help to create a super-automated customer support machine.

Cons

The price was high for a service dedicated solely to customer support. We had to contact support several times during set up, but they were helpful. Integration was the hardest part.

Exceptional Customer Service Platform!

Helpshift helps our CS team's job easy breezy! Probably the most efficient way to reach our players, answer their queries, updates and event announcements. Their own customer service is also reliable and indeed helpful. Here's to one great customer experience- from ours to you! Cheers, Helpshift!

Chasing bugs in the Helpshift platform

Pain.

Pros

Quite easy to set up, covers basic needs for customer care solution

Cons

On iOS, using Helpshift is pain (from developer perspective). Lot of issues, updates break stuff. Old Objective-C based code-base.

HelpshiftCore.install breaks application delegate methods. For example, deep linking started working after removing Helpshift. So the SDK is doing some crazy stuff under the hood.

Need more Improvement

I have been using helpshift for the past 3 months and I don't really like it at all. Partly bcoz in my previous company I was using Zendesk and I felt its feature much more userfriendly than help shift. It could also be possible that my current company dont feel those features or functionality as neccessary but it really sucks big time. Positive points would be that the downtime is very much less and if issue reported, it is quickly addressed realtime. Keep up the good work in that front. But seriously you shld improve a lot.

Pros

Downtime or issue is less

Cons

Need lot of improvement in being user friendly especially for agents who use the tool everyday as well as the manager who runs report.

Bait & Switch

The company has been acquired by an India company and the new CEO is taking it in a very "customer unfriendly" direction.

Pros

Had a decent integration with our mobile app. The reports/dashboards had a nice interface that looked modern

Cons

Customer service was terrible. The bait & switch pricing. On renewal they wanted to up our pricing by 500%

Our customers loved us more after we gave them Helpshift

We thought we were responsive and cared about our customers, but trying to handle issues with email and a FAQ page was no substitute for a carefully designed, scalable, and easy to use system. Helpshift makes it great when our users get into a jam ... because they get to learn, talk, and get out of the jam - without having to go to email or a website.

It's expensive, but worth it

We've had good customer support and their custom pricing, although more expensive than other solutions, is worth it. The ease of use and integration in-app and with push notifications is excellent. We've had some problems with integration, but their support team is quite responsive and we've been able to work through the problems.

Pros

Ease of use both from a customer's and agent's perspective

Cons

Pricier than other solutions

Support - all in one!

Pros

The fact that you can have your user-facing help and support integrated with your support team over chat/tickets. The new Zendesk integration has made our lives a billion times easier!

Cons

It can be a bit hard to get the hang of it at first. For someone who's looking for an easy way to do support for a small startup, this would probably not work at first.

Review of Helpshift

Its a great product, some features missing but otherwise very good! Some features that it lacks is have a real time Live chat, so you can see the customer typing and being able to delete sensitive data without contacting Helpshift.
