Hiver

Any work environment where more than one team member is able to address certain customer requests. We used to use Groups, but then it was confusing as to whether or not someone responded, and we needed more transparency between team members. Another example is a person emailing with a billing question. We used to reply and add the billing department's email address or forward the email to billing, but with Hiver, simply assigning it to the billing HIVER Inbox allows anyone to reply directly to the customer without the issue of either the customer or team member remembering to reply all or accidentally replying only to the team member forwarding the email.

Vision Helpdesk

I think that there is probably nothing that Vision Helpdesk can't do given enough work to customize it. The problem is that you almost have to have someone dedicated to knowing everything there is to know about the system and then have them be the administrator of all the customizations and feature additions you want. It's great that it can do so much, but it's not great that it's so complicated and has very little out-of-the-box configurations.

Pros

Hiver

  • It's easy to set up, and manage ongoing.
  • The customer service and support is amazing- I get check ins, quick responses to enquiries and extras from time to time.
  • It knows what it's doing- it's here to take the issue of gmail not being the best when it comes to shared inboxes and it has provided the perfect solution!

Vision Helpdesk

  • The best thing for us - the timer. It's really cool. We can start the timer and end it when support finishes. It's very important for working with other companies we give support for.
  • Good-looking, with good visualisation and usability dashboard.
  • Ticket transfer between support users, comments, ticket printing.
  • The best price and functionality, comparing to other help desks.
  • Support. Best support I have seen on internet. Helped with setup, and helped with few minor questions.

Cons

Hiver

  • There is currently no way to create a support ticket unless related to an email already received. It would be extremely beneficial to be able to take a call and create a support ticket within HIVER based on the call in the same manner that we can create a ticket from an inbound email.

Support from Vision Helpdesk was rather lackluster. We uncovered a bug pretty early on in our use of the system and it took them about a month to fix it. Our internal admin of the system had to keep pestering them to get it fixed. It wasn't critical to our business but was something we needed fixed and it just seemed like they didn't care that much about fixing it.

Alternatives Considered

Hiver

Hiver was the only option we looked at. There didn't appear to be many alternatives in the market

Vision Helpdesk

Vision Helpdesk was more open for an NGO while the other companies were more attended on the "big-money", which we don't have as an NGO. Second point is that Vision Helpdesk is very easy and simple to use. Not too much installation, programming etc.

Return on Investment

Hiver

  • Hiver has increased the efficiency by which we address emailed questions and concerns.
  • Hiver increases transparency between team members.
  • Information pertinent to one or more team members is searchable by all applicable team members making it easier to research a situation that otherwise could have been stored in details across separate member email histories.

Vision Helpdesk

  • Most cost-effective help desk software I have researched from Kayako to SAAS [products] like Zendesk.
  • We got more features and easy customization done with Vision Helpdesk which where not possible for Zendesk and Kayako was too costly.
  • Ticket tracking has been easier and faster with Vision Helpdesk; for our web hosting business we prefer a download version which is not possible with SAAS help desk providers ( Zendesk or Freshdesk).
