LiveHelpNow Overview

What is LiveHelpNow?

LiveHelpNow is a live chat, help desk and customer support solution that offers all the typical features of a help desk app, plus more. The live chat features of the application give users insight into customer behavior and intent, with real-time visitor monitoring, individual customer information feeds and social media insights. This data can be used to tailor the kind of chat offered to customers and to display promotional ads. Agents can transfer files as they chat and tag chats for later review. Users can generate chat transcripts for customers and chat history for agents. Chat history and reports, customizable surveys and performance analytics further help to better understand customers. Aside from live chat and customer engagement, LiveHelpNow also helps streamline email and ticket management with the ability to convert emails and Twitter mentions to tickets, ticket log filtering and search, ticket status updates, canned responses, ticket transcripts and more. Businesses can further improve their customer service and free up agent time by publishing an SEO-friendly, fully searchable knowledge base, and can also create private articles for internal use and training documentation for best practices. The call management features of LiveHelpNow allow businesses to offer 24/7 contact with customizable call-back forms, notifications, call logs and a digital voice mail service. Agents can look up a customer's entire call history and use filters to find specific information.

Best economical chat app in the market


John C.

Large call center, life saver

Multi brand support with ease


David H.

It has been good, but i have recently noticed less down time with the program than before.

Use it to communicate to my customer via chat, help them with their orders, or questions.


Bac D.

Great resource for online chatting with customers!

Quick, simple, easy way for our customers to get in contact with our Technical Support if calling is not an option or if it's just a simple question. Decreases amount of unnecessary calls into our call center, freeing up our agents for other troubleshooting calls.

My experience over the past 2-ish years has been a positive one.

Pros

Few years back I ran into an issue when if no agent in a department was not logged in, the depart would should up in the chat window. Client wanted to remove that department completely when agents in that department was not logged in. After digging and trials, I discovered LiveHelpNow and stayed with them. This system also provides full analytics (similar to Google Analytics). I uses this often to compare with Google.

Cons

Wish, the welcome chat window was visually customizable similar to modern chat system. Currently it only allows me to choose one option.

Response from LiveHelpNow

Hello Mark,
Thank you so much for the kind feedback!
A few months back we released an embedded chat window, which no longer presents chat as a popup window which your account is currently using but rather as an overlay within your website giving you literally unlimited options in customization.
Hope you will check it out in Admin Panel>Chat system->Installation>Embedded
Again,
thank you for being a loyal client! Much appreciated!

Multi brand support with ease

Pros

Ability to support customer using any channel (Chat, SMS, Phone, Email, Facebook, Twitter, etc) is absolutely indispensable.
All records are stored and easily pulled up during the conversation. For example SMS chat started by a customer with LHN showing all previous conversations by the same customer which were done in the past by email, chat, phone, facebook, etc giving us full picture and enabling us to provide the best customer service we can. Just awesome

Cons

Would love to see themes added to the operator console. Not sure what else I can point out here, the software is simply done by someone who knows call center business.

Pros

How easy it is to use, the info it give us about the customer, and how the chat boxes are easy for the customer to read and use

Cons

Wished they made the software for Imac computer systems. I hate to have a extra chrome tab open and accidentally close it when working on my website and i close the chat out. Needs to have a Imac software like it is available for the Windows OS

Pros

It was very easy to set up. Integrated easily with our website. Customers really like using the LiveHelpNow option to get answers to quick questions. Save them a phone call.

Cons

We have had only minor issues where our agents get locked out of the LiveHelpNow application. We aren't informed of these issues and need to contact the company to find out if there's an issue on our end or theirs.

Pros

It works well, for the most part. Sometimes things glitch out but restarting the client usually solves the issue. It's definitely very easy to use as well. The UI is simple. The customer service is great, prompt, helpful. I absolutely LOVE the translate feature. Makes speaking with international customers very good. For us and for them. Overall, good product to use.

Cons

The UI could use an update. It is simple but kind of ugly, though that doesn't affect the performance of the product or anything. Sometimes I'll show as online but people may not be able to start a chat via our website. It's a pretty simple bit of software, so there's not much I can say I dislike about it. The UI always seems to bother me though, haha. A bit superficial.
