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.

Raiseaticket

In our 400+ employee company, keeping track of all requests had become impossible for the ICT department. Raiseaticket has solved this by giving agents access to see ticket statuses, and the ICT employees the ability to manage such requests properly. An added bonus was reporting, which made management very happy and gave a clearer picture of what the department is facing, and how they're doing with the SLAs.

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

  • Keep track of threads and pinpoint similar issues already raised.
  • Reporting is extremely good and holds all the info you'll need.
  • Developers take on-board feedback. After a year, we're still getting new features which we didn't even think we needed.

Cons

Help Scout

  • There are only 2 levels of organization in the docs sites. We cannot group the content into any more subfolder layers.
  • Much of the fancy targeting in Beacon is based solely off of URLs which doesn't work for us as a single page application.
  • The paging in lists of tickets isn't the most efficient. An infinite scroll would be much easier to work when you have a bunch of active tickets.

  • Pre-set templates could use a bit of a revamp, but nothing major.

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.

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.
Amanda Elias | TrustRadius Reviewer

Raiseaticket

Raiseaticket was cheaper, more versatile, and easier to use without compromising any of the features that the other programs offer. Also, the system is still growing, so there's a huge potential for this software to grow as well and become a leader in the email management systems market.

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.

Raiseaticket

  • Reporting has been a great asset to management.
  • Improved SLAs.
  • Improved time management of the teams.
