Tomsk Inc.
During the pandemic, our company worked remotely. Various staff in our company had technical difficulties or needed assistance installing software in order to work. DeskRoll Remote Desktop helped us to make this process seamless. Rather than deal with the aggravation of trying to walk someone through something over the phone, we were able to get things established in a simple, easy way.

Gorgias
It has the best Shopify integration we had over 40 Shopify stores and having all of that information on a user's email was extremely helpful. The integrations for 3pls could’ve been better and the reporting left something to be desired. Having a feature like most common topics based on what the users write about rather than what we had to manually tag would be very beneficial.

  • Tagging- the tagging system was a great way to stay organized.
  • Rules- when you have 49 inboxes implementing rules on when to fire a macro or auto tag is necessary and Gorgias’ UI was easy to understand and execute.
  • Integrations- I had to integrate with dozens of inboxes many times using aliases and most of the time Gorgias was able to help.

Cons
Tomsk Inc.
  • It could be more cost-effective.
  • It could include better "help" or "how-to" sections for people who are not as tech savvy.

  • With that said, sometimes integrations would not work and we would have to create a Gmail alias.
  • Their response time was not that quick to errors.
  • They did not integrate with platforms such as whiplash or ship station which would have been very useful.

We selected Gorgias from Zendesk based on its Shopify integration. Given how many stores we were managing the team needed to quickly find all of a customer's information in an email. We preferred it to Zendesk. However, now that I use intercom I have many more features such as surveys, topics, extensive reporting, auto tags, and series I prefer intercom for my work now
