It is well suited for SaaS products or services that have a highly complex user interface. Through Appcues, you can ensure that people discover all the existing and new features and make them understand the value of your product as soon as possible to address the evergreen issue of churn. But if your user interface is really messed up, you should change the product itself instead of using a tool like Appcues to explain everything on the screen.

Makes your team very accessible, also makes the support process simple for the end users. Good integrations and useful statistics provided. I really like how it lets my team assist our customers in real-time. Aside from that, it lets us send pictures, links, etc and tours to help the customer troubleshoot with ease. Intercom is simple, easy to use, and great for website chats. It is very easy for customers to interact with.
Read full review Pros As a whole, Appcues is very easy to use. You can build templates to easily style future modal windows and tooltips. They have great customer service! Any time I've had a question our support rep always gets back to me with solutions. Read full review Intercom has excellent product integrations with most of the products we use in our organisation. That allows smooth data flow across the products. We integrated Intercom with Satismeter to collect NPS & CSAT surveys. Intercom's FAQs page helped us in redirecting our users to common issues thereby reducing chat support requests Intercom News - We use this to push important updates or recent changes in our product Multi-language support Read full review Cons We were extremely surprised that there are not any Appcues used in Appcues. The app is pretty easy to use, once you figure out how to use it. There were not any type of tutorials when we logged in that quickly walked through how to setup a flow. Appcues has lots of support articles, however they are almost so numerous that it was hard to find simple onboarding documentation that we found useful. The different tooltips and product actions are great, but being able to customize the different cues a little bit more by changing sizes and aspect ratios could be an improvement.

A clean and neat PDF export would be fantastic. Better/simpler spam and abusive user blocking, maybe based on IP address or sender domain A lower cost - there are many free/low cost platforms now, and I feel your costs are high Read full review Likelihood to Renew
I am giving Intercom a rating of 10 because we truly use this platform each day. When using the platform, we can have real-time conversations going on with parents, administrators, and even grandparents. They are able to discuss their general support needs and their billing support needs. Having this happen in real-time allows us to move forward with solving the customer issues

This can help to improve usability by ensuring that users have quick and easy access to the features and information they need most, this can be done by using Macros, generating custom events and etc.

Intercom is the premier customer support/engagement model and it definitely has one of the top tier customer support teams as well. I don't think I have ever waited more than 5 minutes to get the information I need or get help with an issue. They are incredible and I aim to model our customer service department after them.

The implementation was surprisingly easy but we are having to adapt from our old process to work well with Intercom.

It has a much, much better user interface, better customer care, and of course better pricing. This along with the fact that they were very accommodating for our use case ensured we went ahead with Appcues.

Intercom is much easier to use. Even though HubSpot's Support hub is a fairly new feature, it lacks so much. It is quite complicated to use and lacks many features that Intercom can offer just for the focus of customer service.
