Azure Bot Service (Microsoft Bot Framework)

It is helpful to us in many ways by giving the recommendation, providing multi-disciplinary platform integration, providing cloud storage with it, and many more. When it comes to doing some tasks with the image then it lags sometimes so there is a scope for improvement in it.

Intercom

The intercom is well suited for email handling. We are currently experimenting with IBM Watson virtual assistant integration to automate customer responses at the first point of contact. Would love to see Intercom develop its own deployable plug-and-play customer inquiry funnels (via eForms, chatbots, etc) which companies could embed as a widget that would seamlessly connect to the Intercom hub.

Pros

Azure Bot Service (Microsoft Bot Framework)

  • Assembles conversational AI encounters for our clients
  • Adds regular language, discourse, and vision
  • Sends to well known channels with insignificant code changes

Intercom

  • Its in-app overlay is both minimal, but also attention-grabbing. Our customers always know how to get ahold of us.
  • Intercom's instant messaging platform allows to quickly drag and drop screenshots as well as a giphy menu, leading to a great customer experience.
  • Intercom provides great reporting and blasting capabilities.

Cons

Azure Bot Service (Microsoft Bot Framework)

  • They have simplified the coding for the bot in Azure, but it would help if the coding was further simplified so that non-IT can operate [and] create it easily.
Francis Banda | TrustRadius Reviewer

Intercom

  • Targeting messages appropriately
  • We often have several messages compounding on top of each other
  • I'd love if they could notify people who have not marked our announcements/messages/communication as read so that they don't end up having several un-related messages overwhelming them
  • When a thread is continued from a previous questions, I wish it was more obvious that the conversation had already been started with a particular person

It's currently a perfect fit for our needs, and we are customer-focused and small. When we grow, we may need to re-evaluate, but our current team finds it easy. Reviewing conversations is simple and allows for great training. The canned replies make service fast and easy. Smart suggestions remove the need to re-write technical walkthroughs and explanations for our FAQ

Azure Bot Service provides an integrated environment for bot development. Microsoft Azure Cloud is fully compatible and its security features. It's more important to pay attention to the logic of business than the specifics of each messenger. We don't have any issues using the bot framework because the implementation is excellent.

It is very easy to learn and use for newbies. They use their features to help the user learn how to work Intercom. I was guided by product tours several times during my initial training. Being slightly more advanced with technology, I wish I could make more changes to the platform, but they have designed it in a way to make it easier for all levels of tech users.

We received an almost immediate response, however, despite the issue being quite urgent and stating that, we did not receive an update for almost an entire day. When we requested an update, we were told that this was due to time differences between the person that received the request and us. The timely nature of support should not be dependent on a single person

Alternatives Considered

Azure Bot Service (Microsoft Bot Framework)

Microsoft Bot Framework is much better and well more established without a lot of proprietary software/coding language.Lex is very limited with integration with standard hardware and network configurations.Lex has performance issues and was too slow to meet near real-time collaboration requirements.Bot Framework complements many other Microsoft communication products and this was key to implementing without a lot of new training required.
Maurice Samuels | TrustRadius Reviewer

Intercom

It wasn't listed up there but Salesforce also has a program called Digital Engagement outside of Pardot that is its very own chat bot. The support that you get with Salesforce products can be a bit hit or miss, as well it is generally more expensive than programs like Intercom. The integration can't be beat, to be sure, but unless your chat bot is receiving dozens of messages a day the limitations of the Intercom-Salesforce integration are negligible the price of changing over to a new platform, having to work with a Salesforce specialist, and the literal price itself.

Return on Investment

Azure Bot Service (Microsoft Bot Framework)

  • Interfaces with the SQL data set, tracks down plans/replies, and tests them with the SDK.
  • Utilizing the system is made conceivable by the Bot Dev gateway. We can interface our bot in excess of ten channels, including Twilio Facebook, Twilio, Twilio, and Slack, and that's only the tip of the iceberg.
  • It is expensive.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Intercom

  • We've seen an increase in number of registrations for webinars by advertising them in-app using intercom.
  • Greater awareness of product releases which has help reduce frustration and promote satisfaction and ultimately stickiness to product.
  • Greater number of leads because visitors to website are more likely to submit a query in a chat box than send a direct email.
