It's best suited for call centers, not for sales teams.
Brian Hopper | TrustRadius Reviewer

LiveAgent

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

Contivio.com

  • It's great for call center setups
  • It's nice to have the ability to use the desk phone or a soft phone
  • It syncs to Salesforce and logs my calls under the appropriate account, which is incredibly helpful.
Brian Hopper | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

Contivio.com

  • No mobile app for cell phone use. Seems very weird that you have to be tied to a computer to manage your settings.
  • No web portal for easily adjusting call forwarding or status
  • Requires signing in and out every day because it will log out randomly.
Brian Hopper | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

Jive is behind the times in terms of user interface and functionality.
Brian Hopper | TrustRadius Reviewer

LiveAgent

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

Contivio.com

  • Contivio auto-logs my calls to my Salesforce accounts, which makes my job much easier and quicker
  • It's provided a uniform system for our entire company
  • It isn't very user friendly, so the transition to Contivio was very rough
Brian Hopper | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
