It was well suited for quick chats. Sometimes a topic over chat can be too complicated and requires a phone call which ClickDesk gives an option for a phone call. It is too specific and limited to conversations. The reason we moved away from this to Microsoft Teams is because Teams is a more all in one solution. It can do chat, phone calls as well as webinars and screen sharing.

I think [LiveAgent] is great from a customer service perspective, though I don't know that I would recommend it for B2B purposes. It has so many features that are fantastic as far as creating a great customer experience goes, I just think it is far more geared toward B2C than B2B.

Pros

ClickDesk

  • They have a simple agent panel, your agents don't have to be a pro tech to manage their agent panel.
  • They also have a simple ticking system along with live chat, it's not huge but it does work.
  • Easy to implement with well known knowledgeable and CMS.

LiveAgent

  • 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.

Cons

ClickDesk

  • Windows native application that has all the services we can use from browsers. The application should be boot with PC starts and notifies real time actions.
  • More information about users. Real time page visiting histories (more advanced way).
  • Customers can review the agent's profile information (public profile).

LiveAgent

  • 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.

I am giving this rating as Live Agent is a very good software that is essential to any small or big business that provides customer support services. It gives you the possibility to manage any of your clients issues, answer questions and keep a good relationship with them by providing quick solutions.

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.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

ClickDesk

ClickDesk was good at what it did, but it doesn't have the holistic approach that Teams does. With Teams, you can not only chat and make calls, you can host webinars. You can see when people have read your messages to see if they are ignoring you or not. Screen sharing is a breeze and is easy to presentations with the audience. People can virtually raise their hands when they have a question. Also, it [is] easy to conduct polls from the audience in Teams.

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!

Return on Investment

ClickDesk

  • We only see positive impact. We use the free version and it is the best option we found in the market (considering our website traffic).
  • It is in the cloud! So, no hosting costs at all! The only need is a stable Internet connection for the agents.

LiveAgent

  • 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.
