The great thing about livepro is you can structure your content the way that suits your organisation. livepro are there to support you in deciding what may work best for your team, it is not a one size fits all solution. The system allows you to write complex processes in a simplified view so staff can easily navigate to the solution they need. The 'rocket' knowledge object allows your processes that have a lot of variation to be written up in a simple decision tree setup, taking your staff to the right outcome every time.

Zendesk Support Suite implementation means an industry-class help desk with a dynamic interface that brings together all customer interactions from almost any channel allowing agents to respond faster to customer queries and with the right context. It is more than just a help desk since it also acts as a CRM by allowing us to organize workflows, processes and track customer engagement.
Read full review Pros Easy to use--livepro is used by our casuals (who have never used the system before) and also our more knowledgeable and experienced staff, all in the same capacity. Positive and engaging training--before implementing livepro, we had on-the-ground training with the livepro team and they have provided us with ongoing support ever since. Anything is possible--livepro encourages users to experiment and to create a system that is unique to their organization/department and to always think outside the box. Read full review Zendesk makes it easy to see if a question/ticket has already been answered/updated (and to see who answered it). Zendesk makes it easy for users to indicate if they are available to respond or not. Zendesk also makes it easy to respond as you can respond within the software/system. A one-stop process! Read full review Cons Feedback module. I'm scratching for things to record in cons here. The feedback module could be improved by having further display options - being able to preview feedback without clicking into it. However, livepro have taken this feedback on board and are already looking at ways to improve. Admin/roles. The current way to set up the roles/permissions is clunky however this is not a space you need to use often. I'm looking forward to the new and improved version that is being worked on.

There has not been a reason to consider anything else as the core functions work perfectly for ticketing. Also Zendesk continues to focus on new functionality, growth of the API and Apps framework and add more partner application to the list. Not only will be renew but it is likely we will add seats as we grow and expand our customer focused teams.

As an agent it's very simple to use. As an admin it's also easy to use, but sometimes lacks some functionality that would be nice to have such as expanded native 2 way sync functionality for many major apps that are commonly used today like
and Salesforce. The ability to add followers to tickets to they get updates and are in the know without the customer seeing this agent cc'd is a nice touch. This ensures additional visibility and easily following the communication without having to appear as a CC to the customer, who could accidentally remove that person in a response, thus breaking the visibility

In the past year, I'd say I have only noticed maybe two hours total of downtime in my own usage. Very minimal.

Every time I contacted them they were not only very responsive and knowledgable, but always seemed to have a positive upbeat attitude. It probably helps that we did not have significant service outages or sev 1 level issues, but even my lower severity issues were quickly answered. And the positive and upbeat attitude really made things feel comfortable.

Zendesk has tons of available material for training - videos, webinars, articles, etc. The only reason this is not a 10 is because it can be hard to figure out how to navigate to these things and find what you are looking for.

I was very satisfied. They have a free trial for 30 days and I recommend you do that and use it. It is very easy to get started with the basics and the build on over time.
The only thing technically complex was single sign-on and integration to Salesforce.com required some tweaks – otherwise setting up system was very easy Read full review Alternatives Considered
SharePoint did not have the functionality that livepro does. We attempted to create a knowledge hub in SharePoint but were left disappointed.

I have not used any other support software, but also evaluated FreshDesk. For our needs at the time, Zendesk was more polished and had the ability to support multiple websites in a single instance, while allowing customization for each brand separately. That was crucial to us, and is why we went with Enterprise.
Read full review Return on Investment livepro has improved our right first time response for our customer contact center. In the first six months of going live, our RFT response increased to the 60th percentile from 50 percent. One source of truth--our customer service team is confident in the answers they are providing and that they can rely on the accuracy and quality of information. Providing a superior level of customer service--as the team becomes more efficient in using the system, they are processing more calls and creating more meaningful outcomes for our customers. The teams percentage of missed (abandoned) calls has dropped from 4.26 percent to 3 percent since implementation of livepro.

Tickets can be linked to each other and support articles, creating opportunities for more efficient responses. Central location for users to ask for tech help when they don't need to know which staff member is the appropriate person to ask. Read full review ScreenShots
