ConvergeHub
It is really well suited for clients looking to automate the process with a budget constraint and that is inline with most small and medium enterprises, startups as well as entrepreneurs looking for a productive environment to grow their business in.

Hiver
Any work environment where more than one team member is able to address certain customer requests. We used to use Groups, but then it was confusing as to whether or not someone responded, and we needed more transparency between team members. Another example is a person emailing with a billing question. We used to reply and add the billing department's email address or forward the email to billing, but with Hiver, simply assigning it to the billing HIVER Inbox allows anyone to reply directly to the customer without the issue of either the customer or team member remembering to reply all or accidentally replying only to the team member forwarding the email.

Cons
ConvergeHub
  • Customer support isn't that great, takes a lot of time to respond.
  • Notifications are not on time, i.e. they are delayed and not real time.
  • Lack of integration with other applications.

  • There is currently no way to create a support ticket unless related to an email already received. It would be extremely beneficial to be able to take a call and create a support ticket within HIVER based on the call in the same manner that we can create a ticket from an inbound email.

Alternatives Considered
ConvergeHub
ConvergeHub offers the best set of features and the interface that it does at a price that is by far the best out of its competitors. This has been an easy-to-sell product as the maximum amount of clients are startups or SMEs and budget is the main constraint for them, with which the views of ConvergeHub creators seem to align well.
