Freshdesk Messaging (Formerly Freshchat)

I would recommend Freshchat because it is very handy when it comes to handling and operating with a small team. I have always had a pretty smooth messaging experience with Freshchat and this is the basic reason why I am vouching for the product. In my opinion, it greatly helps in the promotion of brands due to amazing tracking features which help in telling your performance and facilitates in identifying the adequate leads for the brand, which in my opinion is extremely beneficial in the long run.

MobileMonkey would be great if you have a really strong social media presence and want to capitalize on people visiting your pages. It's great if you have a tech friendly audience who is not afraid to talk to a chatbot. If you have an audience where they might be uncomfortable or more of an "uptight" audience then it might not be fore you. It's also not great for heavy B2B if your focus is on high level targets as they're likely not logged in to Facebook at work. B2C is probably the best function for MobileMonkey, although it could be used to help field support messages.

Cons

Freshdesk Messaging (Formerly Freshchat)

  • Bot communications used to take time to appear, but this was fixed recently and we are now more than satisfied to use it.
  • The initial process of setting up a Freshchat account is a long one.

MobileMonkey

  • Terrible marketing ethics!
  • 6am phone calls to my cell trying to up-sell me

MobileMonkey support is second to none when you have a paid plan. Always willing to help and make your life a lot easier when you're facing any technical difficulties or frustrations. When I was on the free plan, I found plenty of useful resources that helped me solve my problems, and I could still contact support for help.

Alternatives Considered

Freshdesk Messaging (Formerly Freshchat)

I have a lot of software already in my organization which we are using to handle different processes in the organization, Freshchat easily gets integrated with them and gives me all in one platform to manage all of my activities on one platform which is great help for me. It is designed on such a great module that it can easily integrate with any other software.

MobileMonkey

MobileMonkey is a lot less expensive than both Olark and Drift. We chose MobileMonkey because we were hoping the familiar interface and integration between social and the website would drive more interest which would lead to conversion and revenue. It's more of a chatbot than Intercom in that Intercom is really good for customer support, but MM is a nice way to get people interested by sharing high level data through a conversation that doesn't require a real person. However, Olark, Drift, and Intercom all integrate with the major CRMs and marketing automation platforms which gives them a real edge over MobileMonkey at this time.

Return on Investment

Freshdesk Messaging (Formerly Freshchat)

  • Freshchat incorporates with other informing and helps work area stages, including conspicuous suppliers like Zendesk, Slack, and Facebook Messenger.
  • Straightforward information investigation - Freshchat furnishes us with information measurements and examination in a streamlined and straightforward style, helpful for everybody to process, including individuals without an information investigation foundation.
  • It is a cost effective platform.

MobileMonkey

  • It has become a quick sunk-cost due to the amount of time I had to spend ignoring/blocking their unsolicited marketing/communication attempts.
