Crisp

At $95 per month for unlimited seats, it's the cheapest solution for both support and marketing/sales teams if you need multiple seats. At the same time, everything works so smoothly and efficiently that you'd never believe it is such a cheap tool. Small teams could leverage their Free plan or the Pro tier, however, to get access to advanced features like chatbots or CRM integrations you'd need to get the unlimited package. Magic Browsing is another top feature that allows support teams to see what the client is doing on the website and guide him through the needed steps to troubleshoot any issues

Mention

I would ask if they have ever used a software like Mention before, if not, I would totally suggest they start with it. It's easy to use, easy to set up and while it may be confusing at first, it's probably the cheapest and most effective. My suggestion to a new marketer or first-time user of this kind of software would be Mention.

Pros

Crisp

  • Intuitive chatbot functionality
  • Unlimited number of live agents at one fixed price
  • Real-time assistance with cobrowsing feature
  • A decent number of integrations with popular tools

Mention

  • Mention has nice support and implementation function. They will do some of the harder work for you (e.g. refining your alerts).
  • It helps us to easily track and rank influencers, which improves the effectiveness of our Public Relations (PR).
  • You can filter and refine alerts e.g. by language. This is useful if you want to break into new markets.

Cons

Crisp

  • Number of native integrations could be bigger
  • Additional features for improving conversions like popup banners or guided tours to allow clients to combine multiple tools into one (like Intercom does)
Dennis Maksymov | TrustRadius Reviewer

Mention

  • Yes, I just said it is clean and easy to use, but there is always room for improvement in even the most perfect software. I would personally love to see the ability to custom message options a bit more or just customize the look and feel of your dashboard.
  • Bugs. Mention works great 95% of the time. The other 5%, you may run into major crashes or see mentions that you cleared coming back, etc., but nothing that is a deal breaker or unexpected with a tool like this. Worth noting nonetheless!
  • Better plans. This is a small issue, but I wish the lower plans has some basic reporting.

Mention works quickly and its user interface is easy to use. Alerts update regularly and I've never noticed any lag. It integrates with our CRM via Zapier, but this is not something which we use yet. The only thing I would say is that it takes time for Mention to reach its full potential. It only starts to rank influences from when you set up the alert, so it can take a few weeks to build a map of your influencers.

Mention always responded promptly and gave excellent support. Any problem we had with the software, from login trouble to broken features were addressed quickly. There was once a problem with our quota, where we were unable to see results we should have been able to see. We sent an email, and within an hour, the situation was resolved!

Alternatives Considered

Crisp

Crisp has fewer auxiliary features that Intercom (popup builder and guided tours is something that comes to mind), however [I feel it] has MUCH better pricing tiers. It does 95% of things Intercom can do at 5% of the price.Both Drift and Freshworks provide similar solutions which are more expensive, but also have technical issues, which resulted in poorer performance of our website

Mention

Currently, there are no other tools available with the features that Mention has possible according to our knowledge and experience. We firmly believe that Mention has placed themselves in a category all of their own. In the ten years, our company has been around. We have yet to come across any other companies like Mention. Pretty sure there may be another company or competition. None like Mention in our opinion are available, however.

Return on Investment

Crisp

  • Radically increased conversion rates due to proactive chat bots
  • Increased customer satisfaction due to stellar support (built in screen share saves a ton of time for troubleshooting, unlimited number of agents helps to improve response times etc)
  • Saved hours of time of support team

Mention

  • Mention has had a positive impact on my business because it gives people the impression that I was following them, even if I might not have been. It makes me appear active on all social media platforms, even if I ONLY look at my mentions each day!
  • Because I have only used the free plan but have benefitted greatly, I would say that my ROI is fantastic!
  • The only negative impact that Mention has is that I do get a daily email in my inbox, and it is one more thing to check. However, it is worth the time.
