WebsiteAlive
It is well suited for communication with existing customers and prospects. It is less appropriate for people just looking to visit our website to get up to date with the latest team news or those who aren't at a computer.

Gorgias
It has the best Shopify integration we had over 40 Shopify stores and having all of that information on a user's email was extremely helpful. The integrations for 3pls could’ve been better and the reporting left something to be desired. Having a feature like most common topics based on what the users write about rather than what we had to manually tag would be very beneficial.

Pros
WebsiteAlive
  • Mobile compatibility - AliveChat has a dynamic user interface which makes its popup chat widget display and work perfectly on all devices - mobile and desktop. Thus web visitors get a complete experience no matter the device from which they use in accessing our website.
  • Analytic - AliveChat provides us with a dynamic set of website analytics that helps us in analyzing our progress or decline in a timely manner. With the analytics provided by AliveChat, we are able to monitor the number of visitors on the website at a particular time, the duration of which they have been on the website, the number of times they have been on the website in time past etc.
  • Feature packed - AliveChat is packed with features which makes the job of the customer care agents easier. For instance, with AliveChat it is very easy for an agent to transfer a web visitors chat to another agent that has better answers to the agent's query. We are also able to introduce short survey questions to web visitors, which they respond to before they begin chatting with a customer care rep.

  • Tagging- the tagging system was a great way to stay organized.
  • Rules- when you have 49 inboxes implementing rules on when to fire a macro or auto tag is necessary and Gorgias’ UI was easy to understand and execute.
  • Integrations- I had to integrate with dozens of inboxes many times using aliases and most of the time Gorgias was able to help.

Cons
WebsiteAlive
  • There seems to always be required upgrades where you need to spend more money to get a better product.
  • The look and feel continues to change, not necessarily for the bad.
  • Price point has gone up a decent amount recently.

  • With that said, sometimes integrations would not work and we would have to create a Gmail alias.
  • Their response time was not that quick to errors.
  • They did not integrate with platforms such as whiplash or ship station which would have been very useful.

AliveChat really serves a different purpose than other products. Very few products offer the ability to chat through our website, so it compliments our phone, text, and email options very well.

We selected Gorgias from Zendesk based on its Shopify integration. Given how many stores we were managing the team needed to quickly find all of a customer's information in an email. We preferred it to Zendesk. However, now that I use intercom I have many more features such as surveys, topics, extensive reporting, auto tags, and series I prefer intercom for my work now

Return on Investment
WebsiteAlive
  • AliveChat has made it easy for us to track the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. As the real-time number of visitors on the website gives us insights into the performance of ongoing campaigns.
  • AliveChat also makes it possible for us to have an idea of where our web visitors are coming from i.e. via the pre-chat survey form for instance. We are able to generate important data like how a web visitor got to know about us, their expectations when visiting our website etc.
  • AliveChat makes it easy for web visitors to get a real-time response to their questions, with a delay of probably a few seconds.
