"Live Chat that anyone can set up"

What do you like best?

Chat Beacon have created a live chat program and service that anyone can set up. Every step you have to take is easy and simple, even if you are not technically minded. When setting it up instructions are provided for every step in the process and their support team are always patient and ready to help if you need them.

Once it is set up there are a number of features that i think really make Chat Beacon worth it. The in app messaging allows you to communicate with colleagues regarding specific support cases without having to use another messaging service or email. This keeps everything in one place and makes it easy to find previous correspondence regarding specific cases. The same can be said for the team inbox which works in a similar way.

What do you dislike?

When you first look at the user interface, there is a lot to take in. This may put some people off straight away. Once you start using it it is not complicated at all but initially it can look incredibly confusing and overwhelming. To add to this there is relatively little you can customise in terms of the layout for yourself so if you don't like some of the layout you are stuck with it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a great live chat service that you can set up easily. There is a trial available so if you are concerned that it won't be for you, just try it out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Initially we thought that we wouldn't be able to provide an automated live chat service without having to have a more in-depth knowledge of setting one up but Chat Beacon has allowed us to set one up so easily. Customers can now get live chat support from us, something that we were not able to previously offer.

"So flexible and forward thinking. "

What do you like best?

The ability to customise the chat window on the customer end is great, there are so many options that you can adjust to make sure your customers get the best visual experience when using the chat function. Avoiding confusion for customers trying to contact us is very important and this has been a great help in doing this.

The conversation archiving is also a great feature. The fact that chat beacon hosts and stores all your chat archives makes everything so much easier and as a small company i feel this is more secure than if we had to host them ourselves.

What do you dislike?

While the customisation of the front end of the live chat is great and give you so many options, it is not the same for the back end. The user interface is not able to be customised and this can affect workflow and the way in which you use the program. Some more detailed customisation when using the program would be great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A simple and tailored live chat service without the worry of hosting it all yourself. For a small company this is really ideal and i have no reason to see why it wouldn't work for a larger company too!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can provide a simple live chat that is unique to us, we can tailor it to suit the exact needs of our customers both visually and in the support it provides. We don't have to worry about storing the information gathered during these chats as Chat Beacon does this for you.

"A brilliant resource "

What do you like best?

The customer profiles that chat beacon creates is a great tool. When a customer uses the live chat it builds a profile on them so that you can look at their case history and you are able to make sure that you have all the information you need when dealing with their case.

The ability to share chats with other team members is also a great feature, allowing you to pool resources and creates an enviroment where more people can take ownership of the customer service of the company.

ChatBeacon was incredibly easy to set up and includes a number of features that makes it stand out fromother live chat services. It is a comprehensive and well thought out live chat serivce that any company can use.

What do you dislike?

There is relatively little option to customise the interface you are using, this can slow down your workflow and does stop you really getting the best out the program. I have alos found the target emails feature too complicated to set up, i am certain that contacting the support team would help me resolve this.

Recommendations to others considering the product

An easy live chat service that simplifies your customer service and provides the customer with round the clock help. Give it a go!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to create a comprehensive customer profile from their previous interactions with our live chat, this really saves time and helps the customer immensely.

We can offer a brilliant live chat service that helps us and our customers.

"Great On-Premises Live Chat"

What do you like best?

The control over the type of chat windows, customizations to colors, sizes, headshots, feedback survey's, and auto-responses (called Bots) that you can program are all amazing tools inside the software. Their hands-on tech support is amazing and they will help you however possible.

What do you dislike?

The admin UI leaves a lot to be desired. While it has the functionality, the layout is poor and needs serious updating to be up to the standards of today's UI's. It needs to be larger and dynamic, rather than everything crammed in one small window that cannot be enlarged. Like I said, it works but is lacking in the modern design and simple ability to increase the window size.

One set-back from previous versions, was the ability for one user to see all other users under a tab named "Operators". This has been removed and now the users can only see users of that department they are signed in under, where another user that is not a member of the same department will not be visible to begin a chat with.

The other feature that is not available yet, is with the SMS chat function, which is great, but when your office is closed...the system has no way of sending an "offline greeting" to the customer, informing them that your office is closed...so they sit there thinking that you've received their message but are not replying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Compare price points with feature packs & user count. I found that using ChatBeacon as the admin takes a week or more to get familiar with, however, between versions, it remains mostly the same making it simpler for admins to deploy updated server software or full migrations to new servers.

The integration with MS SQL and working inside VM's makes ChatBeacon a real ease to create redundant backups and versioning.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ChatBeacon is the solution for our customers to be able to type live chat back and forth with our office. We like options of communications, therefore provide phone support, email support and live chat support, provided by this software - ChatBeacon. It provides us the ability to have an AI that automates much of the typical questions our customers have and reduce overhead of employees handling the chats. It also allows for after-hours chats to be handled by the AI. And you can chose from the 4 AI's they support!

"Tailored to you "

What do you like best?

I really like how you can arrange and customize this service for whatever business needs you have. The fact that the packages they offer are dynamic really works well for a small business as well, you can change the service you are receiving from Chat Beacon based on what your business needs at that point in time. The ease of this is indicative of the company as a whole, they really make everything very easy to use and as a company, they are great to deal with.

What do you dislike?

The user interface can run slightly slow at times but this is not a permanent thing and usually speeds up again after a couple of seconds. I believe this has improved since the last update.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a simple and easy live chat service that takes your business into the modern age then this is great. I really can't find many issues with it and i would recommend anyone to give it a go. The trail has all the features available to you so you can really get a feel for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to save money using ChatBeacon in a number of ways, using their service cuts down on the number of people we have to employ while still providing our customers with a great support service, as we can change our support package so easily we also save money and trouble by adjusting it to suit our needs.

"Simple but effective "

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is! Set up an account follow the instructions and you are ready, simple as that. Not only is it so easy to use but a really comprehensive piece of software. there are so many brilliant features, from the customer tracker and ticket function to the in built translation system. we have found this to be really helpful and transformed the way we can support out customers.

Another great feature is the way you are able to share chats with colleagues, this can really help you pool resources and knowledge to help find the best solution.

What do you dislike?

While it is very easy to set up and user-friendly it is lacking in a detailed customization element if you want to get more advanced. It does offer a lot of features but these features are set in stone and there is no option to get more technical and create a user interface suited to specific needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a simple program that your whole team can use to interact with customers then this is a great solution, you can share the workload by showing other colleagues chats, which can really help for a small business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can now provide around the clock live chat service for our customers around the globe. our team can work together to provide the support our customers need. It was easy for us to set up and easy for us to use.

"Excellent superior chat software. Very friendly to non tech savy individuals. Many features!!"

What do you like best?

I have searched for many weeks for a simple easy to use chat software fore my website. I found out that some companies charge an arm and a leg for such a simple software. ChatBeacon's team was there to find a great price for me with excellent customer care. I am not very tech savy, so I was scared at first but realized with a few minutes of learning it became easy to use. There are so many features on this software that are so useful to my business. It can track where a customer is surfing on your website and super fast live chat (you can see what users are typing before they send the message). There are so many more features on this software that I'm still exploring.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing negative to say about this software. ChatBeacon is always doing their best to find more innovative ways to be able to connect business owners through chat. The company is releasing a SMS feature to where customers can reach out to businesses through text! I'm super excited for this new feature!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please download their trial to see how great of a software it can be for your business. They offer free trials

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the main benefits I have with this software is I am able to connect and reach out to my customers more efficiently than I was before. The number one goal in our business is to always stay connected with our customers to keep them happy for repeat. I have converted several sales already with this software.

"Modern Day Live Chat "

What do you like best?

Chat Beacon is so easy to set up, you do not need to have any experience with live chat portals or their inner workings, this makes it great for a small business that want their customers to have a higher level of support. Any problems you do have the support team will be happy to help.

Online support is such an important part of any business and is something that can be used for free by customers all over the world which is why we went with Chat Beacon. A smaller business that has global customer may not be able to provide the best support for non-english speakers but the inbuilt translation feature of ChatBeacon makes sure all our customers get the support they need.

What do you dislike?

There are no options for customization. I think this would help as some people find the user interface confusion and it can take some getting used to. If you were able to customize this more then i think it would improve individuals workflow and maybe increase efficiency.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think small business looking for a simple live chat service that isn't going to cause too much hassle should look into this. It will allow you to connect with customers all around the world so much easier than previously.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can now provide a global live chat support system and make sure that a certain demographic of customers don't miss out on the support and service they deserve. It has allowed us to set up a brilliant live chat service incredibly easily.

"A modern and great chat software!"

What do you like best?

What we were looking for in the company was a system that allowed us to get closer to our customers easily. At first, ChatBeacon is a lambda chat application but behind this first image that we give it hides a whole other universe, the customization of all the whole chat that it is at the level of the colors or the text is already a good point, but what has struck us the most is their professionalism. In addition the application is really easy to use and allows us to connect to users. Integration is easy with the SightMax team, answering each of our questions with respect and precision.

What do you dislike?

For the time being, we do not distinguish between problems when using the application. Also for the customization that could be clearer, adding categories for example instead of a single window containing all the customization.

Recommendations to others considering the product

At this time, we think we fully integrate Chat Beacon into our society. We are still in period of evaluation of this application but it particularly seduced us. In addition to this, the use is affordable for the foreground. If you are hesitant to add Chat Beacon to your company, well, test it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Thanks to Chat Beacon, we have been able to get closer to our customers and meet their needs on time.

For the moment, we notice a greater satisfaction of the customers and a more regular commitment on their part which really helps us!

"We love using ChatBeacon Live Chat"

What do you like best?

I like that it is simple to chat with visitors. Also, I can see my colleagues chat and they can see mine, which allows us to help each other out.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the information aspect. I wish it would provide more information such as company name of IP address but, I know that is hard to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering ChatBeacon now is a good time. They have added a new features with texting and Facebook. We use it for chatting when people have questions, it is easy to use and supplies all information you will need about the contact.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We help people with support and if they need more help we pass it along to our team and it is quick.

"Not just a live chat"

What do you like best?

Chat Beacon provides you with an excellent live chat service but there are a few features that means it is more than just this. The team inbox and chat sharing feature really helps communication between the team when dealing with customers and means all correspondence and information about a customer is stored in the one place, making it easy to view the case history. This also helps share responsibility with the wider team and makes sure work is completed by people currently in the office.

There is also an incredibly detailed and helpful knowledge base that has really helped us get the most out of chat beacon. It provides great tutorials and information on getting the most out of it and can clear a lot of things up.

What do you dislike?

As there is a choice between the different chatbots you use, it can be a little bit confusing as to which one to go for and i found that there was a bit of research outside of the chat beacon website to do. If they more accurately explained the differences and benefits to each one this would be much more helpful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is perfect for a small company that can share out the responsibility of providing support to its customers, chat beacon has halved the time it takes to deal with a customers query.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We able to provide a live chat service that the whole team can contribute to, as we are a small business different members of the team have different expertise and the ability to share the support workload means that queries are dealt with much quicker and customers receive the appropriate response.

"Advanced and cost effective "

What do you like best?

Using a chat bot to offer live chat support has in recent years become a cost effective and easy way of offering live support to customers and Chat Beacon is a great company to provide this, they offer a number of packages that you are able to easily change between based on what your company needs at the time. This allows you to really get the best from them as they have such a flexable program. They are a really great company to deal with.

The actual program itself is also really comprehensive. You can view so much information from the main dashboard. One great feature is the ability to share a chat with a colleague, this can really help and save time by sending and sharing live chats with colleagues who would be more suited to deal with a query. This can be very helpful with a small buissness.

What do you dislike?

So far i have not found any issues with the program. Everything has worked as it should and i have found it really easy to set up and use.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Chat Beacon provides a service for small companies that means live chat support is no longer out of the question. Anyone who has previously found themselves in this position should check this out.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been able to massively reduce the amount of time an average customer interaction takes. Thanks to a number of features Chat Beacon has we can provide constant and competent support for our customers 24 hours a day.

"Forward Thinking Company "

What do you like best?

I like how intuitive the chat bots are, they can really help provide the customers with the support they need when you are not able to physically help them yourself. from previous personal experiences i have been dubious of chat-bots but chat beacon provides you with a number of options to make sure you and your customers have the best experience. Having the choice to choose between a number of different bots gives you more control.

You can set the live chat up very easily and once you have done this your customers can receive 24 hour support without it costing you to employ people round the clock. This can make sure important things are flagged quickly and excellent support is provided.

What do you dislike?

The support team can take a little while to get back to you. I have never had a problem with their response and they always make an effort to completely resolve your issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I simple and futuristic answer to live chat, i was sceptical about how much support a chat bot could provide but i am no longer concerned. After completing the trial i am confident that this is a great solution.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can provide our customers with a live chat support option, without having to employ a full live chat team. The chat-bots are smart and really help the customers get the support they need. It is a great solution that is beneficial to both you and the customer.

"Practical and flexible"

What do you like best?

So easy to use, even if you don't have a lot of experience with this kind of thing, support is always there to help if you need it as well. I love that you can have multiple buttons for different departments on the same page, this allowed for effective communication with the customer, and no getting send round the block to speak to the right person - these buttons can be customised as well!

What do you dislike?

If you have a lot of agents it can get pricey as it's charged per agent, but if you're a large business the it is worth it.

Although there is some customisation, it could use some improvement.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Read reviews before you make a full purchase to make sure that it's suitable to your business needs, get the trial before you purchase.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ChatBeacon also works as an internal chat system for agents as well. It has increased productivity and customer satisfactions overall.

"Effortless and Convenient Software! "

What do you like best?

It's amazing how easy to use it is, it's so simple to get set up and get chatting to customers. It has exceptional quality on video calls which is a great advantage - no one want to be in a chat with a customer if the video/audio keeps dropping out or freezing. If you have agents who spend time outside of the office then they have the option to answer chats on the go, on a phone, so there's no chance of the of customers being accidentally overlooked.

There's also the very useful feature of a 24/7 virtual assistant that can help answer common questions from the chat window, and it's a free feature with the latest version.

What do you dislike?

There are not a lot of options to customise and when their are they aren't very clear, this is one of the only things that could use some improvement. Other than that we had a very pleasant experience with ChatBeacon.

If you're a small business it can also be a little pricey, but if this isn't an issue then it's smooth sailing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Like most software it's always better to make sure it is suitable for you, especially if you're just a startup or small business, the support team will be able to assist with this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has made it very easy to connect with customers from all over and the ability to help them with their needs in great time has increased customer satisfaction.

"Customer Service"

What do you like best?

I LOVE how chatbeacon also has a live chat on their website as part of their customer service... brilliant!

What do you dislike?

Pricing. I understand the importance of pricing for a business, but I work part-time and am trying to run a business on the side. At this moment, I can't afford a chat line on my website. If it was free I would love that, but obviously I understand why that can't happen.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you dont use chatbeacon, use some sort of chat for your business! And take advantage of the livechat on their own website if you get stuck.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Live chat is a huge part of customer service today. As a customer of any organization, I personally prefer live chat... it seems to be faster and easier than emailing or calling support. I get frustrated being put on hold via the phone, but live chat allows me to continue working on other things. I know thats how many people operate. It solves frustrated customers and their negative reviews because it solves problems quickly.

"Chat Beacon Review"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to add it to our website. Makes it very easy for viewers to contact us through our website. The quality of the video calls is amazing too and much better than Skype than we previously used. This makes our customer service overall better than our previous methods to do so.

What do you dislike?

Because it is relatively new, not everyone is accustomed to this interface, so I have to teach all of my assistants or people who have to use it about it. It becomes hard at some point because they are not used to adding HTML code to a website and sometimes have also deleted a part of the HTML code, adding more work for me to do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it as a business analyst at Case Western to analyze and survey the quality of the calls that we receive and help our HR department in improving our overall quality.

"Best Automated Service for Personal Websites"

What do you like best?

I use ChatBeacon for my faculty website so that I can redirect my students and potential employers better. Instead of them contacting me for information or getting lost on my website, they simply use ChatBeacon to get automated responses to common questions. During the office hours, my assistant manages ChatBeacon's responses and takes over the conversation if the visitors are not satisfied with the automated responses.

What do you dislike?

I have been using ChatBeacon for about a year and I haven't found any bugs or problems in it. I wish they had a discounted plan for educators or students.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Start with their trial period and see if you like it. I would suggest you contact the customer service before hand just to see if your web host would be compatible with this service. Automated Responses are great, but you need to have an actual human helping visitors a lot of times.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can set up automated responses which provide a Customer Service like experience. I love the trial period. It was very easy to integrate into my website with just a few lines of HTML code.

"Too good to be true"

What do you like best?

ChatBeacon gives us the ability to customize almost any visual aspects of the user experience. This is ideal for our company since we serve many clients who have different needs.

What do you dislike?

With the recent upgrade to ChatBeacon, there are some features from the last version that we miss.

If you're looking for the in house installation have a competent IT dept and someone to manage the chat who is familiar with html, css, and java.

It will make things much easier!

"Smart and Sophisticated"

What do you like best?

I like how effective this is, the chat bot is smart and can really help customers move towards the solution they are looking for. I like how you can provide 24 hour support to your customers without having to increase the amount of people we employ. The fact that it has an auto translate feature also really helps when dealing with global customers.

What do you dislike?

I think the user interface is a little bit crowded, a move sleek design would help improve workflow when using the program.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want a simple and powerful chat tool then this is for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Amazing Chat Software"

What do you like best?

It's so easy to use, it's almost effortless, it's very easily added to websites so customers can start chatting. The video calls are top quality, which is sometime unheard of when in a browser, this makes it a lot easier to communicate effectively.

What do you dislike?

Customization tools could be clearer and in one single window to allow for more streamlined changes. It can also be a bit pricey if you're only a small business.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Always start with a trial, but you will love it. It's also advisable to contact customer service before you make a full purchase to ensure they meet your individual needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're able to connect seamlessly with our customers and we're able to assist them with whatever they need in great time. The customer satisfaction has definitely risen since using ChatBeacon.

"Customisation can be tricky but the user and customer experience is easy!"

What do you like best?

The ease of use and simple (but smart) layout for the user and customer is ideal. The internal chat feature is also very handy if you just need a very quick piece of information or needing to share the chat to gather further details from colleagues. Overall, I've found it very reliable in terms of bringing together customer profile data and being able to cross-reference this quickly and easily.

I've found this to be more reliable than other similar software applications. No dropped chats or viewing troubles from our side or the customer's side. Very impressed overall!

What do you dislike?

The UI for the backend customisation isn't exactly as well laid out as the user-facing/customer facing side. It's a little clunky. The options available for customisation are also a little limited, however, I'm aware ChatBeacon have been improving the features available.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Well worth it, great value for money! It's definitely a step in the right direction for value for money, better time management and higher reliability. Give the trial a go and you'll see what I mean!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This has streamlined support and added reliability. This has meant that other colleagues are free to focus on other lines of support within the business and the chat is customer focused again. It has also had the great side-effect of improving customer experience overall. It's also great value for money, even the basic package has plenty of options and functionality.

"No such thing as a language barrier now."

What do you like best?

In built translation. So i represent a global company through digital channels. Being that webchat is a free service available across the globe (unlike telephony) we used to receive so many inbound coms from non English speakers. Its company policy to communicate solely in English, so these coms were macro-ed away. So, after a years hiatus where the webchat contract moved to Manilla, we've begun using ChatBeacon. All i can say is wow. it couldn't be more intuitive. I also personally enjoy the fact i can handle multiple transactions at once, it takes a lot of pressure off my role and has brought a certain freedom.

What do you dislike?

Not much. All i do is utilize the software to do the best job i can. But after meetings with my colleagues and managers, there needs to be more customization and categorization options. But as I say, I can get my job done, so I'm marginally happy.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As stated previously, the language barrier with our customers, has all but disappeared now. We've over come both an obstacle, and a situation that was slightly threatening the ongoing contract we had with the client. In fact we're thriving now, with new lines of business.

"ChatBeacon Review"

What do you like best?

First off, it is so much more prettier and streamline than the previous application (ITYX)we used. Our old application was so dated and looked like it was made in the 90s. ChatBeacon is great as I can easily communicate with my customers and share information. I've had to contact support for an enquiry and they were brilliant, they were able to assist me efficiently and wasn't the robotic support you get from some companies.

What do you dislike?

I think it's great so far, there's nothing I can say I dislike.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very efficient and professional application. Easy to navigate and would recommend for any business requiring live chat management. If you ever need support from ChatBeacon then they are awesome. The support team are very helpful and try their best to assist with your enquiries.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Live chat is an important channel for our business and for most businesses in this day and age. Applications such as ChatBeacon is something that you will need to to keep interactive with your customers. After using various other chat applications, this is the best one so far and I hope my company sticks with using ChatBeacon

"Great Product!!"

What do you like best?

ChatBeacon allows our student athletes to SMS message our dietetics staff while they are away or traveling with their respective sports teams. They can text any questions about nutrition to one simple phone number, and any member of our dietetics staff can answer the message and chat back and forth from one simple application. It’s great to have all the chat records stored in one place. We can also save notes about the athletes, such as dietary restrictions, that any dietician can reference during the chat session.

What do you dislike?

So far, we have had very positive experiences with ChatBeacon. I can’t say there is anything we dislike.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use ChatBeacon in a unique way, so you never know what kind of unexpected ways it can be utilized for you. If you think it is only for customers to chat on a website, there are so many other features that you may not even be aware of. During the initial demo, our specialist tailored the session specifically to our needs and showed us how to solve problems we didn’t even know we had.

"General Manager"

What do you like best?

We have been using SightMax (the older version of ChatBeacon) on our luxury automotive dealership’s website for years. Our clients love being able to chat with us in real-time, through live chat. We are able to capture leads, answer questions about inventory, financing, repairs, and even schedule maintenance appointments and test drives. We’ve noticed that live chat isn’t commonly used within our industry, so our clients say that feature really sets us apart from others out there.

What do you dislike?

This is not an issue with SightMax per se, but a limitation with live chat in general. With the high volume of chats we receive in a day, it’s sometimes difficult to handle them all in a timely manner. We also receive a lot of after hours chats that we wish we could answer immediately.

HOWEVER, we’re told that with the upgrade to ChatBeacon, we can employ chatbots to act as agents when we are busy with clients on the showroom floor or when our dealership is closed for the day. The ChatBeacon upgrade is something we absolutely plan on doing when time allows. Knowing the customer service at ChatBeacon, we’re certain it will be a smooth transition.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SightMax instantly connects us to clients all over the world. We can cater to the needs of every visitor that comes to our website. Since our clients are looking to make a substantial purchase on a luxury vehicle, the personal touch of live chat makes all the difference to them. We’ve seen a substantial increase in revenue and customer satisfaction because of that

"Easy and Fast Implementation"

What do you like best?

The experience from day 1 was very positive. Drago demo'd the product, set up a test environment, helped in the implementation process, went out of his was to answer many questions we had and also helped to setup an AI integration. Amazing experience from the start!

What do you dislike?

I have nothing negative to say about it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Chat Beacon integrated with Motion.ai and Hubspot was a sure shot fix for speed to lead. With a busy pre-sales department, the AI triage running on the Chat Beacon platform is getting help to visitors quicker and without the need for human interaction in some cases. We have also had several sales because of this.

"Modern and intuitive chat platform"

What do you like best?

The fact that ChatBeacon has multiple browser support makes it especially useful for the business. It is compatible with Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari and most other browsers, meaning it doesn't matter what your preference is, you can use it. It's easy to send automated responses, however if a question requires more detail, you can take over to interact.

What do you dislike?

Missing features from the previous version after the update

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get in touch with them, implement ChatBeacon!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The ability to be able to interact with business users overseas instantly, and to get their feedback from their chat instantly is helpful to improve interactions.

"Simple, easy and great for productivity."

What do you like best?

ChatBeacon is the easiest way to grow a company and relationships with your customers. The chatbots learn surprisingly fast and are incredibly helpful. Love the cloud plan!

What do you dislike?

I've yet to find any major issues, if I had to say one, it would be that I would like AIs in the cheaper package, but that would be a preference everyone would want and the 47 package is definitely still worth it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Would definitely recommend for any customer facing industries.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It really helps build a good reputation with our customers and is quick and responsive, everything a company should be.

"Chatting made easy"

What do you like best?

The easiest way for inter-departmental communication and communication with our customers is to provide an easy pop-up on my department's website. Chatbeacon has been a boon because it is so light weight and even after its integration in our website, our website loads pretty fast. ChatBeacon goes beyond simple chatting with features such as video calling and a very professional customer care service.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there isn't anything to dislike about Chatbeacon. It delivers all that it promises and beyond. I wish it had a special corporate plan though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

ChatBeacon is a great solution to the problem of integrating chatting and customer service right onto the website. It fits right into our website and seemlessly integrates because of how customizable it is.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We support inter-department communication and communication with our customers by integrating ChatBeacon directly onto our company's website.

"Chatbeacon Review"

What do you like best?

I LOVE the layout, and I like how simple it makes being able to do a chat, on our other systems they can sometimes get bogged down, but not with ChatBeacon!

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it can get a little slow, if someone experiences a crash on the system, the others are likely to be slower.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I've never found it so easy to do, having used slower and clunkier systems in the past, chatbeacon is a breeze to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes us more productive, being able to navigate everything easier makes it a faster!

I love the variety of customisation options! Anything from Colours to Text.
