Help Scout

Help Scout gets major brownie points for "eating their own dog food." They are all about the Customer Experience, and they live up to this philosophy by delivering not only a very easy to use and modern product, but answering support inquiries right away (and thoroughly), and publishing an extremely helpful and insightful industry blog. So when you buy into Help Scout, you're not just getting a great software product, but also getting a great organization running behind it. Aside from that, I love how Help Scout delivers a great customer experience to our customers. It gets out of the way. Customers are not aware that we use it, in fact, they believe they are emailing directly with me. Transactions are fast and lightweight, there are not as many bells and whistles to complicate the process and slow down the support workflow.

Pros

Help Scout

  • The interface is extremely good. It's fast, it's smart and it's easy to use. In one week we dominated it completely, with every function. It's very intuitive, which helped us onboard the hole team very quickly.
  • Tagging and in general organizing tickets. It's easy and visible
  • Workflows (or automatic triggers) have MANY options and you can get very efficient by using them
  • Their support is very good and effective
  • Docs (FAQ manager) is easy to setup and maintain. It is well linked with the other parts of HS, like answering emails or chat
  • Chat is new to us (with Beacon) but so far is working fine. It's in beta and needs more features, but I'm sure they're on it

Cons

Help Scout

  • It is a bit slow sometimes, but not very often.
  • I've noticed more network errors with their server in the past year.
  • Small annoyance - they use a lot of lightbox popups and if you click outside the box all of your work is lost.

    We are receiving feedback from the organizational level that they may want us to transition to a different solution to provide consistency across the company.

    Usability

    Help Scout

    It is simple and intuitive. I haven't run into difficulty using any of the features that I have wanted to use. Additional help in the form of documentation or support is available as needed, and their response times are pretty good :)

    Alternatives Considered

    Help Scout

    Only have minimal experience with G-Suite for a much smaller company. This worked well for that organization but did not have similar specialization functions that suite our larger organization very well. Help Scout's pricing makes sense, and continues to service our needs well. Minimal usage of other programs, but have no need to explore alternatives at this time.

    Return on Investment

    Help Scout

    • We are able to retain our customer base due to the outstanding customer service our Customer Experience department provides. Without an organized tool like Help Scout, this would not be possible. We pride ourselves in quick response times to customers and are able to do so by effectively routing tickets to the right agents.
