    There's a reason most every site uses Intercom. It's easy to implement and dead simple to use. The biggest issue we have with it is that there is no real ticketing system but, we use other tools to solve for that.

      A great application to automate engagement with your visitors, focusing on personal approach towards your customers

    • We use Intercom as our primary communication tool with our SaaS users from Day 1 and have scaled with them since.

    Really enjoyed Crisp myself, a ton of really helpful features, in particular, the live translate which is great if you have customers overseas! It also comes with built-in help docs to save you having to use another service for that!

      It is a solid product but one thing (quite silly in my opinion) makes it quite useless in our case.

      If a visitor does not provide his details the at the beginning (they call it pre-chat survey) you can not add those details (email,name) afterwards.

      You can have a 2 hours chat session with a visitor but visitor will stay as unknown since you can not add the information you gathered during the chat session. How is that?

      I like Sales IQ for the ability to track the leads and the probability of closing, a live chat which might turn out to be quite useful for B2B businesses aiming to close more deals through their website.

    Kommunicate is a cost-effective live chat tool with tons of super cool features for customer support in addition to Live Chat. 1. Multi-Agent Collaboration: Tools for your agents to collaborate together, like group chat and ability to assign tickets to one another. 2. Mailbox and Ticketing: If an agent misses a chat, the query is filed as a ticket and sent over on email as a fallback to which agents can reply directly. 3. Chatbot Integration: Provides a default FAQ bot and you can also integrate any number of custom 3rd party bots. 4. FAQ Builder: A full-featured Knowledge Base builder to host all your frequently asked questions. 5. Integrations: Integrates with your favorite apps - CRM, Ticketing System etc. We use Kommunicate on our website and the customizability options make it feel like it is not a 3rd party solution, rather a part of the whole.

    A beautiful, simple live chat for websites.✨

    Chaport has Free forever plan for 5 agents and affordable Pro plan. It is easy to use, and the typing insights feature is great!

      Easy setup and installation. Using it for our ecommerce store Pacific Outbound Clothing Co. We've been bouncing around multiple chat apps and each one has their own little quirks that we didn't like on mobile. But this one has proven to stand above them all. Looks great on the website and just worked. The backend dashboard could use a little color -it's all just very white- but that's just me. I think this product is going places.

    Rostislav Gorbachenko made this product has a widget with messengers, so your customers can reach you in a messenger from the website in two clicks. Why it is better than live chat? 1. Usability. The client should not be on the website and wait for your answer. 2. Conversion. Communication with a real person in messenger increase conversion. 3. Promote in messengers. Stay in touch with the client and make promotions in messengers.
