Kustomer is great for small and large teams. It has the flexibility to create routing and queues for additional segmentation of workflow, which is great for splitting the workload among reps. If you have a lot of systems that your reps need to use, this is a great option since it pulls them all together in one place.

LiveChat

LiveChat is the one software I will recommend for website based customer support service.
I will also recommend this program for teams looking to cut their financial budget expended towards training new team members to use software.With a tool like LiveChat, there is very minimal training required before a team member is able to adequately take charge of the software. When compared to alternative support mediums like a support email or call center support, I will suggest a LiveChat backed app/website support for teams (small, medium, and large).This alternative is cheaper and makes it very easy for support agents to multi-task by addressing multiple web visitors at the same time.

Pros

Kustomer

  • All customer data (past orders, communication with customer service, rewards account data) is in one place. This helps agents avoid confusion and reduces the number of tabs they need to open.
  • The Knowledge Base (or K Base) is very helpful. Any time we roll out a new policy or have a limited-time promotion, we can add all the relevant information and worksheets there for the convenience of the agents. That way they can stay in a chat while looking up the answer to a question.
  • We can seamlessly move from chat into email if the customer leaves or the queue times are too long. All the interactions will stay on the customer profile page, so they are kept up to date.

LiveChat

  • Chat is instant, fast reply and has appropriate geo-location.
  • LiveChat is easy to use and very convenient to have on our portal. This is due to faster assistance to our customers instead of them communicating via phone or Email that could take a little longer to get to. Our customers liked that they do not have to wait long for questions that arise. This program is great to have for customer service.
  • Live Chat is super easy to use and our reps have no complaints. We have had a great experience with our customers as well and implementing it onto our website. Customers can easily speak to a real person through chat and get a fast response. We can see what customers are typing so we can prepare to answer quickly and with enough time to provide the best answer.
  • Our business (online web forms and databases) suggests that the guys from technical support have to communicate with dozens of clients every day. LiveChat helped us to set quality work in this direction. This program has a thoughtful functionality, and it allows me, as the owner of the company, to control employees. Our employees, in turn, have easily organized and configured communication with customers. Now the consultations are easy and painless.

Cons

Kustomer

  • Small chat window--maybe the ability to chat in real-time with the person who received your ticket would help.
  • Different teams could have differently colored notes.
  • The notification bell could be a bit bigger. It's hard to keep track sometimes, when a lot of notes pile on.

LiveChat

  • I have got reservations about the VISITOR BANNING feature. This feature, while it has been handy for banning spammers, we have discovered that it only bans a visitors' IP address, thus such web visitor can simply access the website via another internet network IP without any obstacle. Maybe we can have a situation where a users' MAC address can be banned alongside the IP?

Because it is easy to use as well as it serves as a very important tool for communication. It merges with different applications and there are no issues like other platforms.

Kustomer Performances need improvement. The pages do load very slowly but that might be because of the information they carry. If Kustomer integrates with other software or systems it does slow the performance. They need to find a solution to this.

I think that it has been good. I am not the primary one in contact with Kustomer support. I know that we have experienced technical issues at different points, which has been frustrating, but in my experience, each problem has been quickly resolved. Working in a fast-paced environment, even fairly minor outages have a big impact, and this has happened to us a few times since using Kustomer.

The only issues I have had with LiveChat are the technical glitches within the program. These are not common as in everyday occurrences but when the glitches do happen they tend to have very negative repercussions. This is due to chats with customers being dropped, this may be an internal server issue though and may not happen for everyone.

Alternatives Considered

Kustomer

The sales rep did a great job of making us feel heard and instilling trust. We felt that we would be valued as a client instead of just one of thousands, and a small company at that. When we signed they promised and delivered on an additional channel that they hadn't previously supported (toll-free MMS). The product just made sense and was innovative, which definitely gave them an edge.

LiveChat

These products don't load on the user's own web site and aren't as easy to use as LiveChat. We've been happy with Livechat and really haven't explored other options that much because it just works well. I wish there was a free open source product that worked well that we could replace it with though.

Return on Investment

Kustomer

  • We’re getting so much positive feedback — which is not something you traditionally associate with a customer care team — because we’re making it effortless for customers to deliver both positive and negative feedback, and we can now resolve the bad feedback really really quickly.
  • Primarily from our increased efficiency with Kustomer, we’ve seen a significant reduction of $3 to $4 for every cost per contact.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

LiveChat

  • LiveChat has been so effective that we really do not have any other formal means of reaching out to my team except LiveChat. To think LiveChat costs us just 33$ every other month is an entrepreneurs dream as we would have expended more than twenty times that amount to even manage a two-man call center team.
  • LiveChat has successfully helped us grow our mailing list on a daily basis. We have always integrated our Livechat to our marketing software - MailChimp and this has made it easy to add new website visitors to our MailChimp newsletter list automatedly.
