Regarding the technical part, it's overall good support and has great training, however, as with any tool, there's always room for improvement.

LiveAgent is great for companies that want to help customers with their issues. It is also great for getting sales for our company. During our chats, if a customer is interested, we like to ask for the sale. It is too easy for the customers to say no. So it is nice that with LiveAgent, they have an automatic process where the customer can enter their item and address information and it is easy for our agents to get the sale.
Read full review Pros Documentation is stellar, and I am able to search Beyond training or the knowledge base for anything I need. Call flows and IVR is stupid easy to build and work in. End users (CSRs) like the interface and seem to be able to navigate easily in the system. Read full review Having the ability to transfer tickets or chats has proven useful when we are working with a customer who has a specific type of inquiry - perhaps a sales question or an employment request. We’ve found it helpful to have the ability to transfer the chat to the online agent best equipped to answer the inquiry so we are able to serve our customers to the highest standard and with an immediate response. We find being able to add notes and labels to previous chats and tickets incredibly helpful in data collection and also in our ability to work as a dynamic team. By being able to sort our chats and tickets into an organized system that our company created, we can work cohesively to review old conversations for continuity, opportunities for growth, and with transparency between departments.

Read full review LA doesn't provide you SMS integration. You cannot divert your phone call from your local carrier to LA agent directly. You need to get a third party number which is way much costly. Also, if you get a third party number to divert your calls from a local carrier to LA, then the callers have to wait more than the usual time in order to get them connected with the Customer Support Team. WhatsApp Integration also unavailable. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Genesys Cloud CX is a solid product and deserves to be in the upper right quadrant in Gartner. They are true innovators in the customer experience space and based on the innovation taking place monthly, they will likely stay in this spot. The product gains new features every time you blink your eyes.

Everything is very good. It is very useful, friendly to users and it makes our work easier than what we expected. I think that I don't need any help from someone on how to use Genesys coz basically they will directly feed it to you without any hassle on using it.

The initial setup, onboarding and training is easy. The system provides 2 graphic version of interfaces in black or white default colors. I would appreciate, if there were more. Some of the setup forms are not correctly resized. Overall, I'm always able to find what I am looking for in LiveAgent.

We had a couple of times where there were application issues or unplanned outages, but they were resolved very quickly. We were never in the position where it was a total outage, which is very important.

The pages are loading quickly but not every time. There is a delay sometimes. About the integrations, everything is working as expected, there is no slow down.

There seem to be so many pages and options for support - but none of them are very seamless and some are very hard to maneuver or manage. I would like to learn more about the product features and tutorials etc. - but have had a hard time finding appropriate content.

The one time that I contacted the customer support at LiveAgent, they were very quick to help me out and the customer support representative walked me through every thing that I needed to know to set up what I needed. Over all, the support staff at LiveAgent were perfect.

Genesys team that provide trainings are friendly and professional. They helped us to understand well the product and the functionalities. The training was detailed with use cases. At the end, we got a task to develop that ended with success and we got some Genesys rewards. It was amazing experience

I have taken the preparatory course for Genesys Cloud Certification. I must say that it is a good training for administrators and analysts. The bibliography is very clear and is easy to identify the topics, which are conveniently separated. It is, in my opinion, mandatory for those who want to exercise the position of Genesys Cloud platform administrators.
Read full review Implementation Rating
The support engineer that I partnered with during the implementation was exceptional. Every element of the process was done together and the end result of the efforts to grow the knowledge to be able to hand over at the end enabled a pretty smooth transition.

Implementation was quick and when not counting a bug on our website, it took a couple hours. It was mostly done on our end or with the assistance of LiveAgent's live chat support team. We recommend to check out LiveAgent's tutorial videos on their youtube channel or browsing their knowledge base - we've almost always found answers to our queries there.

I worked in a much larger company when I used
and it had been heavily customized for them (over 10 000 employees) so the comparison is a bit lopsided. I found
quite intuitive but the features of Genesys Cloud CX certainly outweigh that one thing.

Before making the decision, we evaluated many tools, but none of them met all of our needs or the costs we could bear for them, until we found LiveAgent. The implementation process was super simple and supported by the LiveAgent support team, who are excellent!

We were able to successfully implement Genesys Cloud (formerly PureCloud) to multiple departments successfully with a range from low call volumes to very high.
Read full review Professional Services
Professional services are definitely much more experienced than the support teams, and the price for their services is very fair. I wish that the support team could help answer simple questions about work that the PSS team does, however, so that we do not have to use our SOW for simple Q&A emails.
Read full review Return on Investment SLA improvement (thanks to better overview during real-time scheduling). Better/easier work with multiskilled users which offers more possibilities to work with FTEs (less FTE needed). One time big investment was needed for hardware (laptops, headphones) as we used to work on desktops previously. Read full review Less expensive than having multiple individual email accounts. LiveAgent has helped decrease our errors since it's more straightforward than sharing a traditional inbox with multiple team members. Sometimes the emails sent from LiveAgent end up in our customer's spam/junk folder because the auto-generated alpha-numeric ticket looks suspicious.
