Drift

Drift makes it easy for us to feed the right information to the right people based on their intent, and it makes the whole experience simple and fast. It’s helped deliver the competitive advantage and brand experience we were striving for. If you’re not ready to innovate on the way you approach marketing, sales, and customer experience then it may not be for you.

Zendesk Chat

Zopim is suited best for small to mid-sized companies who are looking for a great functioning chat widget that is easy to set up and easy to use. If you are a larger company with many departments, you can use this system but I highly recommend going with the highest plan. I'm not sure if the cost is worth it, as we decided not to shell out that much money for it. We do wish we had some of the nicer features, but overall it's a great system that is easy to set up and easy to use.

Pros

Drift

  • Chatbot builder. The new builder Drift recently came out with is very user-friendly and intuitive.
  • Integrations. We integrate Drift with Salesforce and Hubspot. After a lot of testing and mini failures, we finally figured it out and everything works seamlessly.
  • Content. Drift's marketing is the best out there, and I always draw inspiration from their "human" approach to our marketing content. As a customer, I am kept up to date on product releases as well as industry leader knowledge reports to keep our company's marketing relevant, helpful, and engaging.

Zendesk Chat

  • Zendesk is very straightforward and easy to navigate. A non-technical person can work without any issue. It is very easy to write and answer tickets in the system.
  • It has an awesome user interface. Zendesk is easy to set up and configure.
  • It allows me to create macros. I can also create mother and parent tickets in Zendesk.

Cons

Drift

  • The all vertical work flow is tough to visualize at times. It gets a bit messy.
  • Getting a fair distribution of leads to all of the reps has been a struggle.
  • It can be tough to test in a timely matter.

Zendesk Chat

  • Customer message preview.
  • Website visitors manual invites.
  • Chat variables in chat messages. The operator needs to send the client a link to the "Contact Us page" on the web site.

Getting assistance and/or troubleshooting anything with Zendesk can be quite frustrating. In my years of experience with Zednesk, I have almost never found the answer to my question without going through multiple articles, ultimately getting frustrated and reaching out to our contact for more assistance. So for a consumer, the support is not as relieving as Zendesk Chat is to our customers in getting the questions answered by us.

Alternatives Considered

Drift

Like I mentioned earlier, looking at Drift's UI and how it handles chat requests, it may not fare well as a dedicated support-chat system like Intercom and Zopim. Of course, their value prop is conversational marketing and lead gen through automatic bot workflows. They're trying to do too many things - like Email Sequences and Account Based Marketing for example. It would be great to see data in 12 months on how that experiment of theirs is helping the customers.

Zendesk Chat

I like about Zopim is that it has numerous devices and choices. I like the way that you can associate with other individuals, inside and remotely. Also, I like that I can redo my notices. It coordinates with significantly other joint effort and the workplace instruments I utilize. It is stunning the capacity to convey by means of content effectively and the talk transcripts are promptly sent to our email.
