Overall Satisfaction with Intercom

Intercom helps us streamline the user experience by providing guided account tours inside our product, highlighting new features, and promoting upcoming events and webinars. It also helps our support team with online chat. Specifically, we have been able to reduce the response time and thus improve the customer experience by encouraging in-app chat with Intercom.

We already had Intercom implemented and they added new features and integrations that worked with our existing tech stack. However, we were tempted several times to switch because the customer service was so poor. We would often wait days or not hear back from Support or Customer Success for help.

Do you think Intercom delivers good value for the price?

Would you buy Intercom again?


I think Intercom is great as a turnkey solution to help improve the app user experience. Within one platform, you can manage Support chat, market new features, and promote upcoming events and webinars. What it lacks is sufficient user behavioral analytics that can guide you to optimize your messaging and campaigns. To do this currently, we have to employ and integrate different tools, such as Heap and spend additional time analyzing and translating the data into action. It can also become easy to overload customers with too much in-product messaging, so some sort of feature to flag / warn about the user experience would be helpful when you have multiple teams leveraging the tool.
