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.

MobileMonkey
MobileMonkey would be great if you have a really strong social media presence and want to capitalize on people visiting your pages. It's great if you have a tech friendly audience who is not afraid to talk to a chatbot. If you have an audience where they might be uncomfortable or more of an "uptight" audience then it might not be fore you. It's also not great for heavy B2B if your focus is on high level targets as they're likely not logged in to Facebook at work. B2C is probably the best function for MobileMonkey, although it could be used to help field support messages.

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.

  • Terrible marketing ethics!
  • 6am phone calls to my cell trying to up-sell me
  • Spam galore! I have replied more than 5 times to be unsubscribed, yet they still spam me

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

MobileMonkey support is second to none when you have a paid plan. Always willing to help and make your life a lot easier when you're facing any technical difficulties or frustrations. When I was on the free plan, I found plenty of useful resources that helped me solve my problems, and I could still contact support for help.

Alternatives Considered
LivePerson
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

MobileMonkey
MobileMonkey is a lot less expensive than both Olark and Drift. We chose MobileMonkey because we were hoping the familiar interface and integration between social and the website would drive more interest which would lead to conversion and revenue. It's more of a chatbot than Intercom in that Intercom is really good for customer support, but MM is a nice way to get people interested by sharing high level data through a conversation that doesn't require a real person. However, Olark, Drift, and Intercom all integrate with the major CRMs and marketing automation platforms which gives them a real edge over MobileMonkey at this time.

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.

  • It has become a quick sunk-cost due to the amount of time I had to spend ignoring/blocking their unsolicited marketing/communication attempts.
