Broadvoice is knowledgeable about all things phone and fax. When we have a phone that fails they are good about working with us to make sure it is a phone or fax issue not a cable or switch problem. If it is the phone or fax ata they are quick to send out a replacement

LiveAgent is great for companies that want to help customers with their issues. It is also great for getting sales for our company. During our chats, if a customer is interested, we like to ask for the sale. It is too easy for the customers to say no. So it is nice that with LiveAgent, they have an automatic process where the customer can enter their item and address information and it is easy for our agents to get the sale.
Read full review Pros Broadvoice is excellent for customizing/tailoring to a business's specific needs. Tech Support is easy to reach, and provides consistent help. Onboarding new customers is very thorough and supportive. Changing phone systems is overwhelming and time-consuming. Broadvoice makes it as easy as possible with clear expectations and fantastic training. Read full review Having the ability to transfer tickets or chats has proven useful when we are working with a customer who has a specific type of inquiry - perhaps a sales question or an employment request. We’ve found it helpful to have the ability to transfer the chat to the online agent best equipped to answer the inquiry so we are able to serve our customers to the highest standard and with an immediate response. We find being able to add notes and labels to previous chats and tickets incredibly helpful in data collection and also in our ability to work as a dynamic team. By being able to sort our chats and tickets into an organized system that our company created, we can work cohesively to review old conversations for continuity, opportunities for growth, and with transparency between departments. Read full review Cons When changing users on the URL page there are some steps that can be a bit clunky based on the type of phone you're using. Separating users devices into multiple locations inside the URL is nice but you're not able to move those users around if they do change spots in the company. For some reason within the b-hive mobile app if I miss a call and then go into the app to check the call and exit the app I still show a notification icon constantly. It seems to be related to the the Chat portion of the app. If you go to that part of the app and refresh when you exit the app the notification icon is gone. Read full review LA doesn't provide you SMS integration. You cannot divert your phone call from your local carrier to LA agent directly. You need to get a third party number which is way much costly. Also, if you get a third party number to divert your calls from a local carrier to LA, then the callers have to wait more than the usual time in order to get them connected with the Customer Support Team. WhatsApp Integration also unavailable. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Broadvoice is an ideal value. It's not the best possible IP based phone system but it's easily one of the best options if cost is a factor. We got a capable and easy to use product while lowering our costs, a total win-win.

And you are able to answer calls no matter where you are

The initial setup, onboarding and training is easy. The system provides 2 graphic version of interfaces in black or white default colors. I would appreciate, if there were more. Some of the setup forms are not correctly resized. Overall, I'm always able to find what I am looking for in LiveAgent.

AWAYS available to assist when I call. I could not be happier about that!

Any issues are usually overcome fairly quickly. We don't utilize reports offered by the system - we are a small company and the monitoring that would provide is just not something we would utilize.

Laura H. our Service Coordinator was exceptionally helpful when the inevitable hiccups occurred along the way. She calmly sought out solutions that kept the project moving so that we could meet our move-out/move-in deadlines. Also, their 24/7 Business Support line is staffed with knowledgeable people that answer my questions quickly and accurately.

The one time that I contacted the customer support at LiveAgent, they were very quick to help me out and the customer support representative walked me through every thing that I needed to know to set up what I needed. Over all, the support staff at LiveAgent were perfect.

Overcame obstacles of everyone being in different places. Trainer was excellent (do not remember her name!). Open to all questions no matter how technical. The feedback from my colleagues were they were happy
Read full review Implementation Rating
It was straightforward to set up. The phone was delivered prior to installation. The script and routing of calls were established prior to installation as well. The on-site technician installed each phone and offered training to anyone who asked. The main setup for hours, calls, and extensions was already set up via online meeting, making the phone install on-site a seamless experience.

Implementation was quick and when not counting a bug on our website, it took a couple hours. It was mostly done on our end or with the assistance of LiveAgent's live chat support team. We recommend to check out LiveAgent's tutorial videos on their youtube channel or browsing their knowledge base - we've almost always found answers to our queries there.

Broadvoice has many more features that are very useful for everyone in the office. Can also go online to find some help tips if they are needed. Also, good customer service, or help from our IT guys that can answer questions we have because they installed the system. Again, I go back to the "park" system that works so much better than just putting a call on hold.

Before making the decision, we evaluated many tools, but none of them met all of our needs or the costs we could bear for them, until we found LiveAgent. The implementation process was super simple and supported by the LiveAgent support team, who are excellent!

Giving a neutral answer as this is something we do not need and therefore do not utilize.
Read full review Return on Investment We have pretty much cut our phone service bill in half compared to our previous provider. The reliability of the system has reduced downtime to null. Communication, communication, communication is a must for any organization. Broadvoice has met all our expectations plus. Well worth the investment. Read full review Less expensive than having multiple individual email accounts. LiveAgent has helped decrease our errors since it's more straightforward than sharing a traditional inbox with multiple team members. Sometimes the emails sent from LiveAgent end up in our customer's spam/junk folder because the auto-generated alpha-numeric ticket looks suspicious. Read full review ScreenShots
