Azure Bot Service (Microsoft Bot Framework)

Any application where real-time communication is required.Not suited for secure communications.If storage and network overhead are a concern, Microsoft Bot Framework is lightweight and no additional storage capacity or network interfaces are needed.If 100% availability is required, this is not a good choice, stability was an area of concern.

Intercom

Intercom is great for companies that have close relationships with customers or who want to have close relationships with customers. It's the ultimate tool for being able to communicate with customers in a personalized way, provide them with real-time answers, as well as allow them to help themselves with knowledge base tools and automated messaging.

Pros

Azure Bot Service (Microsoft Bot Framework)

  • Azure Bot Services helps to run frequently asked questions speedily and consistently. Thereby, reducing customer issues/inquiries management.
Francis Banda | TrustRadius Reviewer

Intercom

  • Intercom splits their chat really well. The chats are able to be split between internal notes and actual sent messages.
  • Tagging works really well in Intercom. You can tag each user and can also tag users in messages/internal notes so they can directly see messages intended for them.
  • Easy documentation management. You are able to find the help docs you need easily even during a chat message.

Cons

Azure Bot Service (Microsoft Bot Framework)

  • Azure documentation still needs some improvement.

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

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.

Microsoft offers robust support without a high amount of extra cost to add this product on into our existing support contract.No new onsite personnel as required and training sessions and manuals were included.Very fast response and problem resolution were made available.Detailed configuration guidance was provided at no extra cost.Patching was a bit too frequent.

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)

Azure Bot Services is part of Azure subscription so it is ideal to have apps working [on] one platform so as to manage resources effectively.
Francis Banda | TrustRadius Reviewer

Intercom

SnapEngage allows you to:
  1. Customize CSAT/CES/NPS scores and questions from your customers about your agents.
  2. Automatically import chats to your CRM.
SnapEngage is not a perfect tool but also allows easy stipulation-setting for when the chats should appear on different web pages. It also tracks these stats once they are live on the site.

Return on Investment

Azure Bot Service (Microsoft Bot Framework)

  • High impact on time savings.
  • Database independent support.
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.
