LiveAgent

LiveAgent is well-suited for having a range of members in a company online and having the opportunity to utilize their strengths for the greater good of the customer's experience and the company's overall success. Bus2alps has customer service representatives online to work with guests who have already purchased our trips and have questions about their upcoming experiences. We also have sales representatives online who are able to work with guests who are searching for trips but haven't booked with us yet, and they are the experts with our products and with making sales. We also have members of our guide team who operate the trips online, so when guests have a specific question about an upcoming trip that the customer service team may not know, LiveAgent's ability to transfer a chat to another online agent has proven incredibly useful in answering the guest's query as quickly and accurately as possible. Our customers are receiving comprehensive, dynamic service to meet their needs.

I can't say where it isn't well-suited, which is the reason for saying only 9 out of 10. But for a pre-sales chat window or (to my knowledge) a tech support chat window, LiveEngage appears completely functionally up to the challenge while being easy to learn.

  • Want to track sales, visits, etc.? LiveEngage has the tools you need and or pretty quickly develop the ones that better suit your needs. Did I mention you can even track conversions or any kind?
  • Want to provide support using Facebook, the company has the interface to provide messaging support through the worlds leading social network. Talk about reach the masses.
  • BOTs - by partnering with IBM WATSON LiveEngage offers the best option for messaging BOT operations.

Cons

LiveAgent

  • Occasionally when "resolving" a ticket, the page will not load the full list of remaining tickets. However, the moment you scroll, the tickets appear so it's not too big of a deal, but I'd like to see that cleaned up. It does not always happen.
  • When dialing a phone number, the format needs to be specific, i.e. +15125555555. We often receive phone numbers in the more traditional format, i.e. (512) 555-5555. The outgoing call will not work when pasted this way. I think it will get fixed. These little things seem to get sorted out after enough people complain about it.
  • The mobile version has a few bugs, but when on the run, it at least allows you to read and respond to email. Examples of bugs include not being able to transfer the ticket to another department (on iOS the drop down menu functions like a text field for some reason so clicking into it selects the text as if you are going to copy and paste it). Also, the ability to add an admin note would be nice on the mobile version.

  • I would like to see LivePerson improve in the area of displaying current page views. While sometimes this is accurate, it is not. It would definitely be a plus to have this functionality a consistent feature.
  • LivePerson does have problems with browsers. While this is only typically for Chrome or Safari, it does present problems (typically when a browser update comes out). We have also encountered problems with LivePerson not displaying correctly when on a mobile device as well.

I am giving this rating as Live Agent is a very good software that is essential to any small or big business that provides customer support services. It gives you the possibility to manage any of your clients issues, answer questions and keep a good relationship with them by providing quick solutions.

LivePerson's pricing is prohibitive to us renewing the service. We have used LivePerson for a long time and use to pay per number of concurrent user in chat, they changed their pricing model without communicating with us and our price went up by 5 times the price. Between the poor communication, poor user experience and limited reporting, we decided we are ready to move to the next level.

The initial setup, onboarding and training is easy. The system provides 2 graphic version of interfaces in black or white default colors. I would appreciate, if there were more. Some of the setup forms are not correctly resized. Overall, I'm always able to find what I am looking for in LiveAgent.

Our needs are very minimal, and LiveAgent meets our needs very well. We take comfort in knowing that as we expand, we have a resource that has the features we can take advantage of in the future without jumping over to another platform.

Implementation was quick and when not counting a bug on our website, it took a couple hours. It was mostly done on our end or with the assistance of LiveAgent's live chat support team. We recommend to check out LiveAgent's tutorial videos on their youtube channel or browsing their knowledge base - we've almost always found answers to our queries there.

Alternatives Considered

LiveAgent

Before making the decision, we evaluated many tools, but none of them met all of our needs or the costs we could bear for them, until we found LiveAgent. The implementation process was super simple and supported by the LiveAgent support team, who are excellent!

LivePerson LiveEngage

I've not used other programs in depth enough to make an accurate comparison. However, even from a customer standpoint, I've noticed when I contact a company and see they're using LP, my experience is often better. I've noticed a more genuine experience with business that use LP, possibly because of the ability to create your own canned responses and customize elements of the program to fit your business

Return on Investment

LiveAgent

  • Less expensive than having multiple individual email accounts.
  • LiveAgent has helped decrease our errors since it's more straightforward than sharing a traditional inbox with multiple team members.
  • Sometimes the emails sent from LiveAgent end up in our customer's spam/junk folder because the auto-generated alpha-numeric ticket looks suspicious.
Alissa Burch | TrustRadius Reviewer

LivePerson LiveEngage

  • Employees and prospects now have another way to engage each other. Employees have been able to generate more leads faster, significantly increasing employee efficiency.
  • Customer Service was impacted positively. We frequently receive comments like "that was easy."
  • A few larger deals have come in that were directly sourced from LivePerson. One was almost $500K and another was $170K.
