HubSpot Service Hub

It all depends on what business you're operating. You should also consider your needs, goals, and pain points when looking at [HubSpot] Service Hub. If you’re in need of a tool that will help you manage everything from start to finish, then yes HubSpot might be something to consider. It’s truly an all-in-one platform for everything and anything marketing, sales, and customer support, all in one place.

The single element of Parature I've not seen in any other system of this kind is the Download Module. You can post files in the open, or protect them by any number of entitlement methods. The solution is also appealing to those who don't want to manage the back-end/IT needs as it is a hosted solution and has proven to be very reliable.

  • Clean/Friendly UI. It was extremely easy to navigate around Parature's menus at a high level, and you could take advantage of the more robust features as you became more comfortable and familiar with how Parature operates!
  • Strong Knowledge Base. Writing KB articles or ticket summaries and making use of the search function within Parature allows for expedient recovery of past ticket information. Being able to search for a fix action, or at least a troubleshooting article that can guide you towards a resolution is extremely valuable.
  • Enhanced Notation Capability. Being able to send/post internal or external updates to a ticket is great! You can leave the wordy technical details for other employees while making sure to communicate the high-points and fix action to the end-user.

Cons

HubSpot Service Hub

  • Need to be able to customize and prioritize tiles when in deal view
  • Should have web forms and telescripts built into the program (templates)
Ed Romaine | TrustRadius Reviewer

  • Reporting is barebones at best. If you need special reports, we had to go through Parature to have them built.
  • The use of frames on a website is very 1990s. It actually impacts usability of the product, especially when combined with how Parature handled sessions. An engineer could only work one ticket at a time which, honestly, isn't very realistic for a busy support team that is working on several issues at a time.
  • Support was often unresponsive when contacted for unplanned problems.
  • The knowledge base was not very friendly for clients and it provided no real encouragement for it to be used.
  • It took several clicks to do something as simple as edit and assign a ticket or to close a ticket.

It was bulky, cumbersome, and didn't allow us to handle the volume of cases we received on a daily basis. Many of our issues were highly technical in nature and we would often need to work on 2 or 3 at once. The poor design choices prevented this, which was unfortunate.

They recently had one very extended outage. It was a data center issue - but they were not diversified enough so in the end the system was down for almost 8 hours. There are also periods of time where for no reason the system simply doesn't respond. This small outages are usually short (just a few minutes), and have in fact been occurring less often, so it appears some corrective actions have been taken.

Alternatives Considered

HubSpot Service Hub

For the feature set we were looking for, particularly with an integrated customer 360 view and solid sales pipeline system to help our sales track new leads, HubSpot came out a lot cheaper than the alternatives and allowed the sales pipeline and support team to operate together within one cohesive system.

There are services that do bits and pieces of what Parature does. We liked the idea of having one service that meets our needs
