    Loop Email 2.0 💌 🚀

    Your team's new inbox 👨🏻‍💻👩🏽‍💻

    t lets you assign and resolve emails with a simple click. This way my team members have a clear overview of the daily workflow and save up a lot of time, as they are not switching between multiple apps anymore. Also, a big plus is the integrated chat function for single or team chatting (emojis and GIFs😎 included) and the discussions around and emails - loops, which replace forwarding or BCCing people to emails.

    Most of customer support requests come through email. And how do you usually manage a support@ account? With more people. Loop Email is a probably the best email app for managing an inbox with more people. Just download it, set it up - who do you want to use it with and voila, you can manage multiple support requests with more people.

    Ticketing software for effortless customer support

    Check out HelpDesk. It’s a ticketing system that collects all the messages you get from users in one place and converts them into manageable tickets. What’s more, every time a ticket is created, the app sends a notification to you. Highly recommend!

    If you wanted to take the not so obvious route, I'd recommend implementing social media monitoring into your customer services, unless you already did it. The thing is, people mention different brands and companies on social media as well as news sites, blogs, forums, etc., with those companies being unaware of this on many occasions. According to the research conducted by Conversocial, fewer than 3% of customers directly @ mention brands on Twitter. This means that a vast majority of those mentions are untagged and very often overlooked by representatives, and if you don't have a social media monitoring tool, it's pretty much impossible to keep track of all those untagged mentions unless you search for them manually, but that's super unproductive if you ask me.

    Great screen sharing tool for customer success and service Both presenter and viewer can click and type simultaneously. Demodesk lets you even share control with multiple parties at the same time. Another awesome thing is that it doesn't require any downloads or extensions. It works out of the box with any device and any browser, lag-free - yes, also Internet Explorer! Anyone can join by just clicking a link. It's not only a collaborating tool, but also audio & video conferencing tool. Full disclosure: I work at Demodesk

    This is a pretty inexpensive choice if you're looking to run surveys on your visitors. We use it to run giveaways in exchange for some feedback regarding our product line. We also use it as an async "have a question?" popup, it makes it really easy to capture emails.

    Keyboard shortcuts updated across all your devices.

    The most robust tool I've ever found for managing canned-responses and macros across multiple apps and multiple users. Helps keep all of your customer-facing text snippets indexed, organized, and consistent across many people.
