ChatBeacon

ChatBeacon is a decent choice for on-premises chat support, but the clunky agent UI sparks no joy. If your organization can use a cloud-based solution, there are plenty of other fish in the sea

Zoho SalesIQ

If you are facing issues of agents not being able to respond to queries, which is usually faced with our tools, Zoho SalesIQ is probably the best choice as the default notification is very loud and clear hence makes sure that no chat query is left unattended. The desktop application of Zoho SalesIQ for Windows, Linux, and MAC OS is a superb feature not offered by many other chat applications. The geographical locations of website visitors are sometimes not very accurate hence it is advised not to always rely on it and better reconfirm it from the lead.

Cons

ChatBeacon

  • ChatBeacon is just SightMax with a fresh coat of paint.
  • The entire agent UI is remarkably worse than SightMax.

Zoho SalesIQ

  • Overall it's a very simple tool that doesn't offer a lot of complexity or expanded tools
  • Even though it's all in the Zoho family, it doesn't work seemlessly with CRM or other Zoho products
  • Not always the best at identifying similar users across different browsers, devices, etc

Support is a strong point for ChatBeacon - their support team is small, but you definitely get white-glove service. Zero complaints about ChatBeacon support!

Alternatives Considered

ChatBeacon

Before using SightMax (now ChatBeacon), we used AliveChat, which was an OK SaaS product, but the team operating the service would frequently restart the servers after maintenance and forget to start our instance back up. ChatBeacon(SightMax) as on-prem software eliminated this concern.We've been evaluating ChatBeacon vs. other products lately, and we really like how DeskPro stacks up vs. ChatBeacon - ChatBeacon is purely a chat product, and DeskPro does web chat/phone/email ticketing.

Zoho SalesIQ

Tawk to was nice but it was missing a lot of features that Zoho SalesIQ has. And a massively important advantage that SalesIQ had was that it integrated with other Zoho apps that we already used. The pricing of Zoho SalesIQ was also very attractive, we felt that it offered a great bang for our buck.

Return on Investment

ChatBeacon

  • Using website chat (often with an agent:customer ratio of up to 1:3 or more ) vs. phone support (with an agent ratio of 1:1) has greatly reduced support costs in every business unit.
  • Providing realtime feedback and links (vs. phone calls) has greatly improved the turnaround on the sales and customer inquiry processes.

Zoho SalesIQ

  • We interact with about 50 visitors a month and it's great when we can see the full picture, to see and interact based on whether they are a new contact or a long-time customer.
  • Capturing new website visitors at the time that they have a question about your product is important.
  • Missing chats can be frustrating.
