"Excellent Product & Customer Service"

I've used many ticket systems including FreshDesk and Help Scout. Helpwise is definitely the winner. What I love the best is their customer service. They genuinely care about user input.

Ever feel like big software companies don't care about their users?

You don't want provide a bad customer experience, nor do you want your teams to be overburdened with work. But choosing the wrong software ends up hurting your process more than it helps.

Deal with incredibly poor service standards

“The support staff is very disappointing. Pre-sales is non-existent. So if you have questions good luck trying to get them actually answered. I sent several inquiries about trying to speak with someone about my very specific use case. And only got generic canned responses.”

Have to deal with a bug riddled experience on Help Scout

“The automatic workflows don't always seem to work correctly and Help Scout can occasionally be glitchy. When you go to reassign you can only do one action at once and the ticket disappears from your view as soon as you select an option.”

Are paying for “a Glorified Gmail Help Desk ... Nothing more"

“The system is slow. The volume of emails we deal with (which is not great by standards of comparison to other SaaS companies) is too high for the infrastructure of HS servers. As told to us by their CS team. The workflow mechanisms do not function accurately.”

Helpwise offers you the ability to connect multiple customer channels and even allows you to create custom shared inboxes for your own custom communication channels.

Help Scout reports have 0% accuracy as reported by their users. 0% accuracy, that's right! Anyone that really digs into them will find several instances of double counting. They don’t have any reports for Help Centers either.
