Liveperson LiveEngage is good for larger deployments with lots of agents, and where the rollout plan is broad with respect to the visitors who you will be targeting. It allows you to manipulate more of the data for reporting than many other platforms. The premium cost and some drawbacks with configuring smaller groups might make it lose some appeal for smaller companies or deployments.

24sessions is perfect for appointments such as coaching (my use case) where you want them to be able to go into your booking calendar, choose a time and schedule the appointment - or to schedule it from your end. They they get an email on creation and reminder email. I find it not helpful or at least, not at all intuitive, for setting up a host created meeting immediately. You can create it so you can be live at anytime, but host created isn't as any to set up

Pros
LivePerson
  • The login and interface are near flawless (for what I need). Each of our chat reps has learned how to use it within minutes. Procedure on how to answer certain questions etc., are the only trouble we have, but LiveEngage actually helps with that by storing easily accessible pre-made responses to help guide you or just to paste in directly.
  • Visibility into the context of a customer's question is very helpful. Before I open a chat window, I know exactly what a customer has been browsing prior to asking, and I can usually gather a context from the pre-chat question window. Functionally, it does everything I need it to. Though I don't spend much time in the platform.
  • There haven't been glitches that I remember or have heard of from other reps. The chats usually continue uninterrupted for the duration. Also, you can copy and paste the log pretty easily if necessary.

Cons
LivePerson
  • Is my understanding that they have their majority of support between US and Israel, which is great however the timeframe to get a response depending on the issue may take longer than expected.
  • Their dev support can take some getting used to, some issues that are not supported by their regular tech support is within Dev and you will be redirected to their website.

LivePerson has been a great tool for our company and everything is customized. We can customize everything from the canned responses, operator surveys, and customer surveys. We receive a lot of positive information from our customers; and to be able to provide technical support of the website as well as status information for already placed orders is awesome

Desk.com allows us to bring all of our support tools together into one management system. It does not have all the features that LivePerson has for support but it has all the features we need. It also gives us an easier path to self-service and gives our user more direct access to all the channels they need

I use 24sessions predominantly as I have large discount with it and it works for scheduling clients. The user interface is helpful for past meetings. 24sessions is click and go - no account or software is needed for the client. Zoom and Google Meet do have dial-in capabilities. Zoom is more widely known so potentially more trusted for clients, even though similar abilities. Zoom is more customisable in the call (turn off certain thing or on others). Google Meet is great for google account clients, but a surprising number don't have Google accts I've found.

Return on Investment
LivePerson
  • Without giving away numbers, I know it has been a huge tool for our customer solutions department. Conversion isn't as high as compared to phones, but in terms of providing customers with quick information (shipping prices/times, trade restrictions, order status, etc.) it's huge.
  • Increased employee efficiency is a huge one. The capability of taking 3 chats at a time allows each Rep to be way more efficient than on phones alone.
  • Giving the customer the choice to call in, chat or email is huge. LP combines chat and email into one intuitive program so, again, it increases efficiencies for our team and allows them to provide better customer service.

  • Easy video calling for scheduled appointments has meant customer retention as they don't need specific software etc to have a call.
  • Negative impact whilst our internet has been slow as I've been unable to use the product well as dial in to the call using a phone option.
  • Emails reminders has meant more clients turning up for the calls leading to retained income and happier customers.
