@auren I think it would be awesome to build (in the future) a bot for recommendations.... Text XXXXX 'What companies use HelpScout?' OR 'Alternatives to Optimizely' etc etc Would be awesome :)
Auren Hoffman@auren · fmr CEO of LiveRamp
@bentossell whoa ... that is actually an amazing idea. one could text or ask directly from slack or twitter. (or even from email if one was old school). this is definitely something I hope we can do in the future. anything to make the buyer experience better. thx!

@bentossell you could see what companies use Help Scout right now -- https://siftery.com/help-scout
Ben Tossell@bentossell · Community Lead, Product Hunt
@vammok @auren I know you can see it already, but it would just be a convenient way for people to look up stuff super quickly. Also a lot of companies are/and will be taking advantage of the increasing chatbots this year (check out this post by @chrismessina ) - it is a big movement and with all the amazing data you collect, it could be an amazing addition … See more

@bentossell this is certainly something we'll think about! a slack bot in the making, may be ;)
Ben Tossell@bentossell · Community Lead, Product Hunt
@vammok yeah for sure, I think Slack should be first. I'd consider FB Messenger afterwards, after the increasing number of businesses joining here and their opening up of Chat SDK
Vamshi Mokshagundam@vammok · Cofounder, Siftery
@bentossell interesting this...didn't have FB messenger down as something a lot of businesses use. i could see why though, almost everyone advertises on FB, might as well use it for other work needs.
Ben Tossell@bentossell · Community Lead, Product Hunt
@vammok yeah likewise.... but having 800M users on your messaging platform, you can bet that businesses will take note. (or should!)

@bentossell @auren This! Please. We have an immediate need for this exact function. Looking for alternatives to XMatters and Pagerduy.

@ryanmtaylor @bentossell we are working on a comparison feature and more advanced discovery that hopefully will help you. hope to ship in March.

@auren @bentossell I showed the product to a couple of folks and the consensus was it's a great tool. Now if we only had a place to discuss some of the features and implementations of these separate applications, it would have value far above what it already offers.

@bentossell @auren Have always wanted to peek into goings on at juggernaut startups. Interesting idea! When I used to sell enterprise software - I wanted to have something like this to share with my potential clients so that they can garner context and feel the safety in numbers... will keep this in my collection for sure.

@bentossell @auren and now we have Ask PH to help with some of this too :D
