Help Desk Software Benefits


LiveAgent is helping us convert initial chat enquiries visiting our website into qualified sales leads. The other key outcome is LiveAgent has no impact on our site loading speed. We identified ZenDesk, our previous chat solution, was impacting out site loading speed – and therefore potentially impacting our SEO strategy. We now have a better chat solution AND a faster loading website. – Barney/Capterra (see all Capterra reviews)

Having the ability to transfer tickets or chats has proven useful when we are working with a customer who has a specific type of inquiry – perhaps a sales question or an employment request. We’ve found it helpful to have the ability to transfer the chat to the online agent best equipped to answer the inquiry so we are able to serve our customers to the highest standard and with an immediate response. We also find being able to add notes and labels to previous chats and tickets incredibly helpful in data collection and also in our ability to work as a dynamic team. By being able to sort our chats and tickets into an organized system that our company created, we can work cohesively to review old conversations for continuity, opportunities for growth, and with transparency between departments. Shelby/GetApp (see all GetApp reviews)

We have been using LiveAgent for just over 1 year and I love this system. It is fast, reliable and professional. The whole setup process was simple yet amazing. I love that we are able to personalise it to our business needs. I am so glad we made the switch from our previous supplier. Kimberley/Trustpilot (see all Trustpilot reviews)

LiveAgent connects all the channels that customers use to reach out for support, including social media (Facebook, Twitter), email and live chat. Being able to connect multiple email addresses has been of great help. We don’t have to log in to each one of them separately anymore to check whether any of them received any messages. I love how detailed the reports are for each department, agent and the gamification features (such as the leaderboard). It allows to check the progress and see how your team improves over time.
