"We moved to LiveAgent from ZenDesk... and wouldn't go back..."

What do you like best?

LiveAgent has been a game-changer for us. ZenDesk began making massive changes (including to their Mobile Apps) that had a very negative effect on us (and many others). When our concerns went unnoticed, we began looking at other options. LiveAgent was one of those that appeared and from the outset, it proved to be not only a replacement for ZenDesk, but a better solution (at a cheaper price!). The combination of Tickets, Chats, Knowledge Base, and Social Media interactions all being combined into one platform for our Customer Support Team makes it easy for them to respond quickly and efficiently to our users. On top of that, their support team is amazing and helpful with any questions or issues we run into.

What do you dislike?

It is a complex program that requires some configuration and setup. The great thing is that their support team is ALWAYS there when we can't figure something out. They even go as deep as looking at our code that we have set up to help us determine what is going on and provide suggestions for improving it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

No other company I have found allows you to connect all of the features of tickets, chats, social media, knowledge base, and user forums all in one. It's amazing!

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

LiveAgent allows us to support our users from all over the world through many different mediums - Support Tickets, Chat, Social Media, Knowledge Base, and User Forums. The fact that it is all in one platform makes it easy to maintain, track users across the different mediums, and provide quick and efficient support to our users, no matter the time or day.

"One of the best tools for my business"

What do you like best?

For me, the best is its enormous possibilities, its complete functions, its integration with many languages, its customization possibilities, but the best of all is its incredible technical support that answers all the doubts, problems and questions

What do you dislike?

Very little to say here. Maybe you need to improve some things like the mobile application that is very basic and also modernize the aesthetics of the dashboard

Recommendations to others considering the product

Honestly, I wouldn't think so: Good price and excellent service, they're a winning combination. I had tried many options before and this is almost the best I could find, but the best thing is that they seem to listen to their users and they want to keep improving more and more to be better and that is very important because your investment is insured and in the future you will receive more value

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

I manage several products in my business and they are all self-developed products, and they are saas software. I was looking for a system for these products to offer a great online support, but that includes everything (chat, tickets, etc) and with LiveAgent I found it. Now my customers are happier and congratulate me because they notice the great improvement that using LiveAgent

"Seamless setup and operation"

What do you like best?

I had it set up and running in 5 minutes including the chatbot and feedback options - and I didn't need to use the tutorial once. I was able to test it out too with the minimum of fuss - I just went to my website, clicked the chat button and I was notified immediately that someone was calling. Very slick fast interface and app.

What do you dislike?

I'm sure they could make a better on/off option for when no one's here - but honestly, it doesn't really matter as it's currently only 2 clicks to do this anyway.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I looked around and tried many different solutions including a freeware self-hosted option, but LiveAgent blew them all away for me. I love simplicity and anything I can set up in minutes without needing to wade through tutorials and videos will always be a winner for me.

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

I needed a support portal for existing clients so we make sure nothing is missed, as well as an option to bring on new prospects. This has done exactly what I needed.

"Deep functionality is offered for an excellent price"

What do you like best?

The onboarding process was very professional. Setting up live agent desk was fairly straightforward and when I had an issue connecting the system to my word press website, I had a support person from chat help me. Jacub from Support Chat was very quick to answer and very professional and his help he looked into my system to set up the API keys correctly and had everything running for me in 15 minutes. I was really astonished at the great service.

The functionality this package offers is mind blowing for my needs a small business! It was very easy to link my social media accounts, emails and set up a chat support system that shows up on my website and allows me to help my customers through a web browser or through my iPhone from anywhere in the world. I’m impressed!

What do you dislike?

I guess the online documentation could be a little bit more extensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not hesitate to contact support, as they are excellent.

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

I can centralize support for customers in one single system, and I can allow other people to login and work on tickets.

"LiveAgent has great features without the high price tag"

What do you like best?

As a startup looking for a combination of needed tools but at a price that fits the budget, LiveAgent delivers.

We had live chat buttons added to our websites quickly. We integrated multiple social media channels and multiple profiles from each. Live chat has worked perfectly both in testing and with customers.

We have our teams segmented and have dashboards for reporting. We also track internal chats and calls in LA for reference.

We also use the call center with Twilio as our VOIP service. It was very easy to set up. As I understand it, call center is still being enhanced, but it serves our smaller scale needs for now and expect it to grow with our needs.

Customer support is quick to respond and help out with setup and other questions that come up.

I have been very satisfied with the whole package, price, service, features, and ease-of-use.

What do you dislike?

The tutorials could use more screenshots and drill into more detail. The caveat being their live chat is quick to answer questions on the self-help guide.

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

We use LA to monitor social media, live chat for customers from our website, knowledge base for self help, and call center with all calls recorded.

This has centralized our process for customer interaction.

"The best thing you can do for your company is to implement this Help desk software"

What do you like best?

It's simply fantastic. It offers tons of benefits for your small business.

Live Agent offers hundreds of benefits for both your customer support staff and the general clientele.

The different integrations provided by ladesk for your company's websites will absolutely meet all expectations, facilitating all types of communication between user and service provider.

What do you dislike?

Is pretty hard to find something to dislike in this help desk platform, but if we have to mention one it would certainly be it's price. Particularly speaking the price for each additional agent. I.e. if your plan includes 2 agents + ticket and chat support for $29 per month, and you want to add an additional agent, they will charge you $29 for each agent, which does not seems to be fair.

nevertheless is actually the best help desk platform i have ever tried.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Migrate to ladesk live agent as soon as possible, you will not regret!

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

The main function implemented by us, is the "live chat", which works like a charm. It's great to being able to see what the customer is typing right away, real real-time (without having to wait until they actually send the message), helps our staff to speed up and improve the process of generating a complete answer.

It will also organize all the chats received in an adequate and comfortable way, including its respective ticket number and other information provided by the client.

The "chat overview" function also allows you to see from where, geographically speaking, you are being contacted (via it's ip).

This help desk is also marvelous for managers, since it shows easily a tons of data reports like: chat load, chat availability, agent availability (hourly, daily, monthly...).

"Simple yet complete"

What do you like best?

This tool is probably the easiest to use I've seen or used, it's even pretty to look at and our agents get used to it in no time, being in a complicated business it's a relief to have some simple and user focused tools.

Controls and administration is pretty transparent, also the're always innovating and improving. Aivo's team is always up to the task even when facing complications due to our own or third party's systems.

Having a close relationship with a young development company allows us to evolve together.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the support is not as fast as we wish, it's good enough tho. Being a solution from the same partner as the virtual assistant, I hope for more interaction between the VA and the human chat platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's great if you are an hands on customer and like to be aware of how things work, Aivo team is great and close, always looking to understand business needs and develop new solutions, development sometimes takes a wile when done from scratch but fixes and improvements are recurrent, fast and transparent.

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

We are using it to give immediate support to our customers in various social and owned media. Hopefully this tool will develop a stronger and wider tool that allow us to have full cross channel visibility and global interaction with our virtual assistant(s).

"I have been working with the live agent for already 2 years."

What do you like best?

I like the system it is made. The program is excellent. It works properly. It helps us to solve a number of given issues. It is very useful, practical, easy to work with. If we did not have this program I do not know what we should do. It is a proper thing to use it in gambling / casino industry. It is especially designed for this purpose. It can be used in another spheres as well, as it is a great program I recommend to install and use it wherever you want. I wish it is improved year by year to meet the requirements of the 21st

century.

What do you dislike?

I cannot say any special thing. If I notice any I shall let you know.Sometimes it is out of order and then we cannot work. Maybe some features can be designed better to attract the users and the customers as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is an amazing program, install and use it.

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

I am a customer support live agent, I help the customers with their issues. I have been using the live agent for 2 years already. We help the customers with their accounts, withdrawals, deposits, etc. We solve the current issues of the day and it makes very many issues to be solved on time and easier. You can use it as a good live support for your site. It is easy-going and practical, designed to help the both sides properly.

"Reliable, well-organized, fairly priced"

What do you like best?

The agent section is intuitive. I'm finding my way around it quicker than other support apps, and in turn getting a lot more done. I like the tabbed approach because as I am adding to my canned messages I frequently pop in and out of threads; the design reduces total navigational clicks.

What do you dislike?

No dislikes as of yet. I'm the only agent right now, so we'll see what happens if and when I add in some more team members - but for now LiveAgent is crushing it for me.

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

It's helping me bring order and movement to my support activities. Other tools were either way too robust or just not designed well. I like how I can use the LiveAgent site on my iPad and get stuff done anywhere. The overall effect of LA is that I don't actually think about LA, which to me is the real success. I just get in, turn it on, and hit the inbox. Dare I say it's actually making my customer support...enjoyable?

"A good feature set for the money."

What do you like best?

The interface is easy to use, and it organizes the tickets well. The analytics and reporting offer a good view of what all the agents have been up and how fast issues are getting resolved.

What do you dislike?

It is hard to assign tickets to other agents, and I wish there was greater control with which email address the different departments can sent out as. You can pick an account to send as, but you cannot pick an alias from that account. There are not a lot of plugins from other services for LiveAgent yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do the trial and see if it meets your needs. It doesn't have all the features or notoriety of FreshDesk or ZenDesk, but I think it will meet the needs of a lot of small to medium businesses.

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

We are using it for our internal helpdesk for all our sister companies, and it is working very well to keep all the issues organized and our agents on task.

"Quick and Easy full ticket system"

What do you like best?

I like the integration with all the ways to create and stay in touch with a customer for creating a ticket. The internal ticket is even great for in house tickets. We have setup almost any form of chat for our customers with in terms creating and responding to a ticket because of this.

What do you dislike?

The system was a little overwhelming and complicated at first, however a few video tutorials and much exploration and it's like i've been using the system for years.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't be afraid to watch videos and play around to learn, there are so many features to use that make everything easy. Keyboard Shortcuts alone make this type of thing easier to use.

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

Connections with customers, information missing with tickets are all issues we've had. This new ticket system seems to work perfectly for that, allowing custom notes or ways to communicate with the customer.

"Excellent Product - Easy Implementation, Intuitive to Use"

What do you like best?

It's very visual; items are colour coded with very visible tags, assigned agent names, etc. It's very easy to skim through your list of tickets and see what's going on quickly. The New, Open and Answered statuses work automatically quite well, and the Postpone option is very useful. Also, the automation options - creating rules as to what to do with certain tickets - is a big time saver. Best of all, the basic package is full featured; you don't have to pay more to avoid losing communication from your clients.

What do you dislike?

There are some simple features that would be nice additions. For example, having the option to click a reply button for internal messages would be nice; currently, you have to forward, and then enter the e-mail address. There are little things that we can work around, but I hope to see them down the road.

Also, the knowledge base options seem to be public or internal; it would be nice to have an option to make it available for registered clients, but not the public.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this product. It is versatile and can meet a larger variety of needs.

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

It helps track client communication better, and ensure that each client issue or request has someone overseeing the process, even when it goes through several departments. It also helps track timing, and provides ways to come back to things weeks or months down the road.

"Great Solution for our Customer Support Needs"

What do you like best?

In the past, our Support Reps were living in multiple solutions: Gmail/GoogleApps for emails, Zopim for chats, phone software for our phone queue. The email solution was the worst. Our reps would reply "Handling" to an email to let other reps know they were working on that email. This led to a lot of people working on the same issue, a lot of duplicative, unnecessary work when reps didn't do the "Handling" reply first. It also led to a lot of missed emails. With LiveAgent, you know if another agent is already working on a ticket. We have the SLA rules set up, so we never miss an email or a followup.

With the live chat built into the same solution as our email tickets, we are able to see immediately what other chats or emails this customer has had recently.

Now that our reps only have to 'live' in one solution, they don't miss emails or chats by forgetting to switch back and forth between email and chat.

What do you dislike?

So far my only dislike is they do not allow each user to have the software open in multiple tabs. Our support reps have 3 monitors and it would be nice to have chats up on one monitor and email tickets on another. We asked for this feature and they said they do not plan on allowing it to prevent people from sharing logins to get around their per-user subscription model. I understand that, but it seems like there should be a way to restrict the user's session to one computer at a time while allowing multiple windows open. Overall, this is a very minor dislike.

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

Our reps only need to 'live' in one solution to manage our customer contacts.

We no longer miss emails from our customers.

We can track our reps productivity and point out additional training opportunities for reps.

Training new reps has become easier because we can get them an account and let them watch chats.

"Such a great program! Easy to use!"

What do you like best?

How simple it was to implement into our website and how great the support staff has been through the entire set up process.

What do you dislike?

I do wish there was an easier way to see that you have incoming chats. When the sounds is on it's super easy with the noises it makes, but with no sound it would be nice to have a flashing tab or something of the like.

Recommendations to others considering the product

So easy to use! After researching several live chat programs, Live Agent definitely came out on top! It was so easy to implement into the website, so easy to understand and be comfortable with in the back end, which helps when you need to train multiple CSRs with the product!

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

We are seeing it as another great way to interact with our customers and reach out in ways that we weren't able to before! It has helped us find areas where customers seem to be stuck on our website, and the most common issues that accrue.

"Good software"

What do you like best?

This software allows to create predefined answers

Tickets, email, chats - all in 1 software

You can review performance of each agent, how much hours worked, how many emails answered and chats were taken

You can create filter to review each agent's replies for statistics

You can send email to customer if he accidentally disconnected, which allows to provide better customer support

You can manage ticket's importance by using labels and to assign them directly to responsible person

Live agent's customer support is very helpful and response time is very quick

What do you dislike?

Would be great to integrate translator in chat

When customer opens new window new chat comes, would be better if his chat was linked during one session

To make icon bigger which is showing that 1 agent is already reviewing email or to add lock option to email when it is already open by another user

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

Customer assistance

Allows for several agents to communicate with one customer, which is useful during training

User-friendly interface, easy to navigate

"Great organizational tool for teams!"

What do you like best?

LiveAgent has been such a wonderful tool for our team. It allows us to quickly see the status of all emails in the inbox. We can quickly see at a glance what email are being handled and which ones are in need of a response. It also allows you to tag emails for even further organization. I also really like the ability to add internal notes to a ticket so that we can have internal discussions regarding a particular email string. The dashboards/reporting are great and we also really like the customization options with templates for responses and setting up different rules. It was very quick to get up and running with the platform!

What do you dislike?

There isn't really much that I dislike! My only complaint is that it would be nice to have an option to receive email notifications even if you are currently online/signed in. They currently only send if you are offline, but we keep LiveAgent open in a tab within our browser all day.

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

This has been a huge help in making sure that customer emails do not fall through the cracks or they are not getting a double response from our team. It allows us to quickly see who is handling a particular message, or allows us to transfer ownership of a ticket to the appropriate team member.

"Streamlined and lots of integration options"

What do you like best?

I like that the prepackaged integration code only took an afternoon to deploy on multiple sites by regular admins without needed our webdev to get involved. I also like the badge system. It's kind of fun and has gotten quite a bit of friendly competition in the office.

What do you dislike?

Some of our staff use a shared email. I would like to see the ability to identify a user to my customer that we can set by session not by email.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good option for funneling contacts from multiple sites into a single point of contact, provided those sites allow custom code.

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

Just during the trial period we have made several good inbound contacts. Since, we have noticed that it's a good way for non-english speakers to reach out, and we can combine with Google Translate to work across the language barrier.

"LiveAgent is fun and easy to use!"

What do you like best?

I like that I can customize our reports. I also enjoy the earned badges that displays what stage each agent has achieved based on their customer service. I like that we can customize anything in regards to how the chats are routed and the greeting for each agent to customer. I really like that we can see what the customer is typing and that gives us the opportunity to locate their information and possibly a solution before they even hit send!

What do you dislike?

I haven't run into anything that I don't like just yet...maybe I haven't been using the problem long enough to discover a con?

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try, it is awesome!

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

Using this program has allowed us to eliminate any back and forth emails with customers and we can now provide them with a solution instantly rather than them waiting for a response.

"A great sotfware to provide online support to your customers."

What do you like best?

What I like about Live Agent is that it allows you to respond to emails, tickets, chats, messages from social media all from one place. You can create predefined answers for a better workflow and a faster response.

You can also supervise the work of each support agent. You can see how many hours each agent worked, how many tickets he answered. You can assign tickets to a particular agent to solve a customer's problem or assign it to a department.

You can filter the tickets according to their importance, assign labels and more. You will have a well organized work and you will be able to satisfy the customers.

This is great software to provide online support to your customers.

I really recommend it, it is very easy to use and you have many tools to provide a complete and fast customer service.

What do you dislike?

I had some problems to setup my mail accounts and sometimes it takes a while to update some data such as the number of tickets answered by agents. Fortunately, you can contact their support team and they will respond immediately.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is important to ensure you personalize everything before putting the service to work.

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

I can answer the customer's questions, complaints and claims with efficiency and in a simple way.

"Streamlined our multi-user email and made it fun, too!"

What do you like best?

Compared to a shared outlook inbox we can allocate emails with tags that highlight not only who the email is for, what the subject is regarding but also keywords that we can search on. This has helped us create multiple inboxes for smaller areas of our business increasing our efficiency in helping our customers.

What do you dislike?

The search function seems very basic and doesn't make a lot of sense. To find historical emails I can only search by the customer's first name. For example in "liveagent@myemailaddress.com" it won't pick up on "myemailaddress" or "liveagent" as a searchable body.

Recommendations to others considering the product

LiveAgent really has the ability to streamline your email service and create a more organised and easy-to-use space to work in, especially more teams that share the same inbox.

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

Our response rate has increased noticeably and our entire email communication feels more organised.

"Simple. Easy. Robust help desk system."

What do you like best?

LiveAgent was simple and easy to setup. I looked at one of their competitors and I could not get them to help me or take my money so I came back to LiveAgent. The people at LiveAgent are knowledgeable and very helpful. I also love the fact that when signing up I got a free tech since we are small start up company and there are only two of us right now. Overall, very pleased with the quality and customize able system they provide.

What do you dislike?

I think my only dislike or more suggestion would be to have more 3rd party integrations into the system.

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

I am using LiveAgent to streamline and organize my technical support. Allowing the more personal feel of live chat integration into my website was a major plus to the customer service we would like to provide.

"Easy to use inbox tool"

What do you like best?

LiveAgent is very easy to use and lets you see at a glance what needs answered. It organizes it so the oldest emails/tickets appear at the top of the list so you know what needs taken care of first without scrolling down. Adding tags such as feedback or a bug is helpful so you can filter items and quickly categorize emails. Being able to assign tickets to other people makes it even better. Lastly, the view and organization makes it easy to see what's been responded to so there are no emails that get responded to twice.

What do you dislike?

It would be nice to receive email notifications when something is assigned to you even if you are logged into LiveAgent.

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

Assigning emails to different people on our team and delegating tasks. Making sure emails/chats are getting handled as quickly as possible.

"An excellent ticketing system "

What do you like best?

I like LiveAgent because it's very easy to navigate and it has a nice user-friendly layout with a lot of important functions that other ticketing systems are missing. The live support you are providing is also very efficient and helpful if something isn't working as it should. Also that you are able to see what the customer is writing in advance is a big plus.

What do you dislike?

It would be very nice if you were able to implement an IP ban function so we are able to block customers that abuse the support. Would also be a big plus if the customers were able to attach files even from mobile version and not only desktop.

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

It's a very easy way to interact with our customer and helping them with various problems over chat and e-mail.

"Great program! Easy to use and fits our needs perfectly! "

What do you like best?

It is not an overly complicated program and is very user friendly. If an issue does arise there is always help available. Our team greatly benefits from being able to see what others are working on and eliminates confusion and a lot of unnecessary correspondence. The ticket system is a great feature and also easy to use and keep track of. It is very easy to manage all of your contacts from one central point and the time tracking system is something not available on other similar platforms that we utilize quite a bit.

What do you dislike?

There really is not much to complain about. Sometimes the website can have some minor glitches or bug issues but they are usually quickly and easily resolved. Customer support is great and always prioritizes any issues we have come in contact with so far.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just do it! You won't regret it and I guarantee it will help solve any communication/organization issues you may be facing.

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

This has greatly helped us become more organized and efficient. Communication is much better within our team and with customers as well. The time tracking sheets greatly help eliminate confusion.

"Make Your Support Life 1000% Easier - FANTASTIC CRM App"

What do you like best?

The best thing about the software is hands-down the unification of multiple support channels into a single unified response platform. If you manage multiple properties with a variety of communication channels this is the tool for you. My use case was simple: I wanted a single unified channel for multiple 'support@xxxxx.com' email addresses for various websites. Within 1 hour of implementing this software, I had created exactly the platform I needed.

In addition since my websites are Wordpress I was easily able to add LIVE chat (with offline 'contact us' backup). This is software that will instantly make you more productive if your manage multiple communication channels. This is a very mature product thats fully featured and an amazing value for the price.

What do you dislike?

Very minor quibbles. lack of HTML signatures (while still supporting text signatures). Also a slightly un-intuitive setup process that's easily understood after you setup a few email/chat channels.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Its almost a no-brainer if you fit into the needs usage for this product. No harm in giving the free trial a shot. You wont regret it. I dont. Very mature product.

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

Unifying multiple customers communication channels it a single platform where those responses can be easily managed and addressed.

"Easy to use software what works for your support"

What do you like best?

We like that we can use it for all our brands and use different chats for different brands in the same backand this speeds up the sopport for us and helping our clients faster. the integrated video chat is a great extra for this product. the setup of the live agent is easy to do and we havee set it up in just one day and could go live with it. the inplementing to our websites is also really easy to do and we found no hickups doning this.

What do you dislike?

There is not a thing we can say about the cons. we think there are no cons. Maybe a feature like whatapp busniss adding to the software and linkedin support that is not there yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

yes we would advice to use it

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

our support reply is better than before and we can track are support team in ticket solving the client support is better then before. Its a great time saver and cost reduction for personaltime so we can do more with less people this is great. i the costomer experiance is muts better because of the software and the ticket rsolving is higher what makes our costomers happier and have more trust in our company.

"Very Powerful!"

What do you like best?

Video Calls, Time Tracking, Search and Replace, Google Analytics for the chat events, Giphy integration, Slack Integration and Custom domains with SSL support.

What do you dislike?

The UI could use a bit of a facelift, it's a bit dated.

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

The first thing you’re going to notice when you start playing with this is just how powerful it is. You’re most likely going to waste some time just exploring everything that’s in here. Even things like the Rules / Time Rules under automation are very complex and well built, it’s pretty great.There are seriously too many awesome features buried in this to name, but here are some of my favorites so far - Video Calls, Time Tracking, Search and Replace, Google Analytics for the chat events, Giphy integration, Slack Integration and Custom domains with SSL support.Another awesome feature is the Mail outbox. Where it literally tracks every single email sent from the app including transactional emails. I feel like apps hardly ever do this and they make it very difficult to see every single thing sent by their systems, especially transactional emails, which this records too.

"More than you expect"

What do you like best?

Live-chat, a sort of lead-capture, audio-live-chat, video-live-chat, support-tickets, all your emails in one place and much, much more. What a big time saver and insurance to forgot nothing in the belonging sense.

What do you dislike?

It took me around two hours since those features I need worked in my sense. But afterwards LiveAgent began to work, to run and to save money and time. :-)

Recommendations to others considering the product

It takes maybe some hours to implement / to set up, but then it simplifies your processes, saves time and is maybe your biggest insurance to not leave prospects or clients behind / forget them.

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

I am a coach in the field of personalization.

It is a great feeling to know you will no more leave a conversation with a client or prospect "hanging" somewhere in the crowded forest of emails and support tickets. Comments on Facebook and Twitter included. So many features combined in one place / one dashboard. A big (and in some cases maybe last) step towards being able to work from everywhere in the world.

"This ties a bunch of loose ends together"

What do you like best?

I just started using LiveAgent and really like it. I can finally streamline all of my websites and support tickets together into one central dashboard. There are plenty of options when it comes to configuring the service. You can make your setup as complex or as simple as you'd like to. You can't beat that.

What do you dislike?

I haven't found anything to dislike with the service. It works as advertised so I'm very happy.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this product to anyone. The only issue I has was choosing API 3 instead of API one when I was connecting LiveAgent to the first site (using their WordPress plugin that's available for free in the WordPress Plugin repository). That was the only thing I did wrong, and their customer service was great in helping me resolve the issue.

Our new help desk went live the same day we bought it!

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

I've tried many different help desk solutions from free to paid. I could never find a solution that worked for my business AND my clients. In other words, what was easy and convenient for me was too much like jumping through hoops for them. LiveAgent solved that, making it easy for both parties to connect and get problems or issues resolved.

"Great Helpdesk which improved our customer experience"

What do you like best?

- LiveAgent is creating tickets from e-mails. Thats huge improvement for us :-)

- Form integration on websites.

- Reporting..

- SLAs.

What do you dislike?

No official PHP API client. You have to develop your own.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest improvement in UI and design. Competitors look&feel is better I think. But that's not a big issue.

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

- We improved our response time and we have much bigger control over our helpdesk agents stats.

- In previous system our customer had to log in to our own helpdesk system which was annoying. Now it is enough if they will send us an e-mail and system will automatically identify them.

- We now follow our SLA more successfully than ever.

"Great Product for Customer Service "

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity, it works well for our team. We currently have live chat set up on all 4 of our websites/products, multiple phone numbers, general email contact for our 4 products, etc., all being handled and filtered through LiveAgent. I've used for about 2 months and am very pleased so far.

What do you dislike?

I haven't found any major issues when it comes to LiveAgent. They have badges that employees can get or win when they respond to the most tickets or spend the most time on the software but they also have negative ones like taking the longest to respond or the longest chat time which doesn't work well for the culture we are creating. In LiveAgent's defense, these badges can be turned off as a whole or individually.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of the on-boarding process with your support specialist.

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

LiveAgent is our all in one customer management software currently. We have started using this for internal chat also instead of using Google Hangouts since our team is already using the software.

"Live Agent for small business"

What do you like best?

It's agents rewards (badges) system to motivate our staff and incentive them to keep doing a good job also generating competition between colleagues.

Another interesting fact is that you can see what the customer is typing as they write it out, this helps us get their answers together before they press send.

It is very versatile and allows the entire team to collaborate very well together in order to accomplish the mission of helping our customers.

What do you dislike?

Non customization interface for chat invitations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Feel free to use it, it will surely improve your staff team work.

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

Call center customer support service with live chat and ticket support. Live agent allows our agents to chat with customers that have questions or doubts about our product.

"The only helpdesk I recoemmend"

What do you like best?

The number of features, the support is awesome (this is key for me), the features to price ratio.

What do you dislike?

The graphics could use a refresh, but that can happen at some point in the future. The functionality is more important than the graphics. I would like to see more social networks support. Right now only Facebook and Twitter are supported and I would love to see Facebook Groups, LinkedIn and YouTube in there.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do your homework. Get a free trial from all the help desk software out there and compare them. Pick the one that fits your needs the best. I believe that LiveAgent will fit the needs of most businesses.

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

I'm able to support my customers and leads on nearly any platform they use (except for the ones listed above). It helps me create a nearly unified inbox, which makes for much more efficient workflows.

"La mejor plataforma para dar soporte a tus clientes."

What do you like best?

Es fácil de usar tiene muchas opciones de personalización y un gran equipo detrás de soporte, que resolverán todos tus problemas o dudas.

What do you dislike?

El precio esta bien, ni caro ni barato, el conjunto de características es bueno, pero el diseño y la usabilidad no están a la altura. Hay generalmente una falta de atención al detalle y el detalle hace que la gente adore los productos.

Recommendations to others considering the product

App proporciona todas las características necesarias con precios justos, pero será bueno si somos capaces de introducir el número de serie de las entradas

"the best change you can make!"

What do you like best?

to improve the quality of attention it provides to its clients, i really certify LiveAgent as the best option that we have on the internet now, i have improved by 40% the sales on my website thanks to the online assistance provided by the site, i loved the fact when you do not have online agents the user can leave his message in the form of a ticket and a response is sent to him as quickly as possible, and the best of all, it is very intuitive to use .

What do you dislike?

almost positive things; just i didn't like fact that we have to wait to much for entering the interface at the webpage, that's all, but the rest of it is great! i love the platform

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not be afraid of using LiveAgent! It's very intuitive; simply and functional! You will love it!

The only recommendation, fix the lag at the start of the website, That's all, you are doinging so well! keep going on!

"Awesome help desk platform for both customer and agents."

What do you like best?

This tool makes our troubles a lot easier to provide support to our lovable customers, we can easily track and solve issues through step by step. Also the internal note function is very great useful where we can talk to the team within the same ticket. Also single page loading increased the productivity when we are using LiveAgent.

What do you dislike?

There might be missing a notification when a new ticket created? We might make use of that in the future upgrade versions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

LiveAgent is the right one you need to use if you are looking for a good support system for your services. It has man features for what we are looking for. I will definitely recommend this for business people.

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

We provide modules for Magento sites and we have tried a lot of different support ticket systems but nothing is better than LiveAgent. LiveAgent is the best for quickly integration with our system and provide a very fast way to record issues and working with customer's tickets or chats.

"Super easy and efficient!!!"

What do you like best?

The interface is friendly which makes is easy to use. Sometimes it takes a while to load but overall it is acceptable.

Pricing is good, feature set is good, but the design and usability are not up to scratch and it is terribly buggy. There's generally a lack of attention to detail and the detail makes people love products.

What do you dislike?

I actually don't have any dislikes with LiveAgent, this is something that was needed for the company i was working with and it worked out pretty good.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I was figuring something out on the LiveAgent platform on sunday morning but got stuck. I opened up the chat window, figuring I would be redirected to an e-mail form.

To my surprise, an actual person answered my question within 1 minute.

I have never seen this kind of support, at any other company.

"Moved to LiveAgent from Freshdesk"

What do you like best?

Love that I was able to import Freshdesk into LiveAgent just with a plugin. All I had to do was add my Freshdesk credentials and click Save. LiveAgent did the heavy lifting of moving over everything. The tickets, the knowledgebase, the agents, I mean everything. Then the new customer checklist helped me get my LiveAgent account setup in no time.

What do you dislike?

I'm a new user and so far I haven't disliked anything. I'm not expecting to dislike anything either.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for an all-in-one solution for a support desk with live chat, then you should definitely check out LiveAgent. It's easy to get set up. You can customize the look and feel of your support desk and live chat. Along with having great support from the LiveAgent team.

"The best platform to offer customer service"

What do you like best?

The best thing about Liveagent is the ability to support our customers in every way possible. The live chat tool is great to start commenting on the client's problem and then provide solutions with the rest of the application's tools, which are many.

It also works as a CRM system to manage all our customers.

The installation is very simple and the customer is more satisfied every day, while we manage better the support time.

What do you dislike?

The price is somewhat high, although the application is worth it, so investing in it is a safe bet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It may be a bit of an expensive application, but it's worth it, if your company spends a lot of time supporting customers, you can drastically reduce this time.

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

We were able to establish a much closer contact with the customer being far away from him, we were able to give direct support without making the customer wait and feel that he has a totally immediate support, also with the set of tools of the application we can practically do everything the customer needs.

The benefits are many, but the most important is that the customer is the basis of everything and if the customer is happy, the company works... And thanks to LiveAgent, customers are happier every day.

"Very helpful for my team. Help always available. "

What do you like best?

I enjoy the simplicity of the program. My entire team took to it real quick and made them more efficient. Everything is laid out real simple and easy to understand. There is no confusion on who is working on what. Everyone can see if a different associate is currently working on a specific ticket. If a customer sends multiple tickets, there is no digging through all of them. They are ALL readily available. This helps us out a lot in cutting down the back and forth responses and helps us resolved any issues quickly and easily. My social media team can keep track of all of our customer comments with the ticket system as well. Anytime a customer reaches us via social media, we know and can reply immediately. For me, the reports are great! I can track every team members work and progress. The reports generate very quickly and they are very detailed. Almost everything I can think of gets recorded. This has helped a lot in making us better as well. Their customer support is great as well. I can get a hold of anyone via email and chat. They are a very knowledgeable team and are eager to help.

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there is not much that I can find to complain about. Maybe better customization when it comes to the look of the dashboard? Assigning ticket numbers that make sense lol. No real dislikes, LiveAgent is great.

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

Efficiency and speed. My team can get a better handle on our customers issues and resolve them quickly. It organizes everything really well. I can pull up any ticket at any time for reference. That helps my team a lot.

"Great for our companies chat"

What do you like best?

I love the badge system, which generates competition between colleagues. Also I really like the fact you can see what the customer is typing as they write it out, this helps us get their answers together before they press send.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the inconsistency with the badges. Although they are a good idea, we all see different stats for each other, os don't seem accurate? Not sure if it's because I'm on Chrome and my colleague was on Safari but they don't match either way. Nothing major though.

"We started using Live agent and it is a great agent to use"

What do you like best?

We can manage all our companies and contacts from one central point, we can create all our tickets and manage everything and it allows us to follow up and resolve issues. Without Live Agent non of this would be possible. We love the layout of Live agent, the rewards as well as the time tracking sheet to monitor how much a technician has been online and doing his or her work.

What do you dislike?

We only dislike the ticket numbers, but other than that there are no problems we have no problems with Live Agent.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Live agent is worth using and purchasing as for it is perfect for managing all your work to do and to manage all your companies.

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

We are solving all our clients requests and issues they have by creating a ticket and resolving the ticket according to the date of ticket creation. We realized that the benefits we have with Live agent is that we can manage all our work and do work from one central point and resolving issues that clients have. We can set reminders to finish work accordingly.

"Very nice CRM system"

What do you like best?

Without any doubt the preview of the text being typed is my favorite feature, it is like mind reading since it allows the company support agents to being able to form a reply quickly. Is just priceless.

What do you dislike?

Not all automation functions are available in all cases as well as some inconsistency with the naming conventions of some rules. It also presents some minor spelling and grammatical errors within some text while translating the system to Spanish.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Really recommended software for your business.

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

In the Customer Service service, speed is one of the most important factors and thanks to Live Agent we can provide this quality of service trough our website. You can respond to the concerns of your customers very easily via live chat, ticket support, telephone... It does not matter if customers send an email, complete a form or write through a live chat to communicate with your company's support team as these messages go to a single place where agents can respond to their concerns and make a follow-up of each single case. With this particular software you can create as many agent accounts as you need (and as your budget allows to, since its pretty expensive to have more than one agent). It also allows you to customize the customer support portal. Include an administration panel for you to check how effective your agents are in their responses. You can also see the number of tickets answered, hours of work and connection, and plenty more.

"Certainly better than most of the tools out there!"

What do you like best?

First, we love the simplicity of this tool as it's so easy and simple to use. It took us a few mins to configure it properly. The pricing is a major deciding factor for us as you have all the essential tools at one place whether it's Knowledgebase or the Social Support Channels.

What do you dislike?

Nothing big as such, though we're looking for some advanced features and in-built integrations with CRM and Form fields. Further customization and availability Whatsapp Business and Twitter to continue the chats as in some other tools will make it best among rest.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please bring more feature in Chat Support by bringing users screen sharing feature and Whatsapp Business integration.

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

It's an All-in-One tool and that's all we wanted. We really love the single dashboard panel rather than separate integrations seen in Zendesk and Freshworks.

"Easy and Efficient"

What do you like best?

We recently switched over to LiveAgent Helpdesk and it's been a great move for us. It's very easy to use and has made our workflow so much easier now. The view options in particular are so much nicer than other helpdesks.

What do you dislike?

My one preference would be to have the most recent reply to a ticket appear at the top instead of the bottom, however, it's definitely not a deal breaker.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want an easy to use, no hassle helpdesk, I'd highly recommend using LiveAgent.

"So far so good"

What do you like best?

The switch to LiveAgent has been smooth and easy. The way you can see other agents responding to tickets works great and has been a nice feature.

What do you dislike?

That the tickets show messages in descending order and not ascending order, meaning new messages are at the bottom. Not a deal breaker as LiveAgent scroll to the bottom. Also the little notes on tickets being moved or tags being added feel like they clutter things up between messages.

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

This is our Helpdesk solution, so its important that it work well, shows us the tickets we need to work on, and helps us avoid missing things. Thus far LiveAgent has done that.

"Fantastic Live Chat Solution"

What do you like best?

It's implementation with our platform (Squarespace) was seamless. It allowed a fair deal of control and it is unobtrusive to our company branding.

What do you dislike?

I would like to see a more user-friendly and simplistic dashboard. At the end of the day, all of the features you would need are present - but this would definitely make things a lot easier.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Keep an eye out for great discounts and you'll never regret this purchase for your business!

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

"Great software and value for the money!"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that it's easy to use and intuitive. Tech support is also great. They emailed me after I first signed up and asked if I'd like them to set the software up for me. I can't remember anyone else ever doing that (and I buy or trial a lot of stuff).

I also like that fact that it makes my small business look very professional and organized.

What do you dislike?

My only thing that'd I'd say here is that it took me a minute to figure out how to log back in after I logged out. I'm sure the set up is similar to other help desk software, but I haven't really used one before.

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

LiveAgent is helping me organize my tech support. It's easy to use by yourself, or with a group of tech reps.
