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.

Hubspot Live chat is not the most feature backed but its core service is solid and gets the job. Other live chat software like Live Chat or Zendesk has more features but most of those features are not needed for the everyday biz user
