Overall Satisfaction with Intercom

Intercom helps us automate answers to common questions and take work off the plate of our team. It helps us stay in touch with customers at lightning speed and deliver a solid, seamless customer service experience when our customers need it most. It's easy to use for our employees and for customers alike.

Zendesk is too cumbersome for my team and me. I haven't even gotten a Zendesk email as a customer without it double-emailing me. We chose Intercom because of its versatility, and the 'less is more' approach to conversations, as opposed to ticketing. Our customers are conversational; we don't exactly have tickets or requests.

Would you buy Intercom again?

Yes

Intercom is well suited to B2B and B2C situations. It's very useful for automating common questions at scale. If you're looking at 1000+ customer conversations a week, it's very useful in handling scale at this level. The only situation where I think it would be less appropriate is at a company where there are only 10-20 customers. Anything higher than 20 customers or accounts and Intercom is going to be useful.

We love Intercom and have been using it for years, it makes life easy for our customer support reps. Intercom is always adding new features and I feel like they are thinking about us, their customers, and what to make better for us. This year alone the SMS and Survey features have been so nice for us to utilize.
