AliveChat

AliveChat is perfect for real-time communication with web visitors, especially when a business doesn't mind getting insight into the activities of people visiting their website. It favours websites whose users log in from multiple device formats like a pc, iPad, tablets, smartphones etc as AliveChat is able to provide a similar user experience across multiple devices. Overall, AliveChat is my suggested program for companies or startups seeking a helpdesk program for their website.

Using LiveChat for the type of company I work for (inside sales - remote) is wonderful. Since we are not seeing our clients face to face, the chat feature on our website is amazing for helping assist others.

The only time it becomes a hassle is when the current client/chatter wants a direct call from the person they are chatting with. We try not to double dip in being logged into both the phone and chat at the same time, but we typically are able to resolve the issue without any pains.

Pros

  • 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.

Cons

  • AliveChat keeps chat conversations open even after the web visitor has left the website. The chat remains open until an operator closes the chat and this can get very confusing on occasions.
  • With AliveChat, web visitors are not allowed to drop a message when no agent is online to chat with them. It would be nice if web visitors are able to open a support ticket in the case when no agent is online, so agents get to see it whenever they come back online.

  • Making it easier to find archived chats (having the option for just one's self)
  • Color scheme changes - maybe some darker colors, not as bright/whites
  • A different way of transferring to dept's and not just giving a direct transfer option as the first option.

They all serve different purposes but LiveChat is the only platform that's actually just for chatting rather than for communication amongst remote employees. All systems work together though and for that, our teams run smoothly and communication is amazing!

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • Helps us keep up with our current customers and resolve their issues ASAP
  • Allows for new sales to come through easily. Makes it easier to explain the product and show as we go along.
  • API's allow for a ticket to be created with each chat (into our CRM) and allows us to keep track of the chatters throughout the day and log any information we may have missed.
