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.

Spend more time fussing with the tool than getting customer queries resolved

“Very sluggish and cumbersome to use. I wish it was easier. I would say look for a different solution.”

Pay high subscription fees on Hiver for a bug riddled experience

“The software still has a lot of bugs which we have reported multiple times since we started using Hiver They recently increased pricing significantly with less than 24 hours' notice; only after writing a complaint were we able to stick to the old price for a few months. But we are now looking for an alternative as the product is very expensive now for what you get.”

Need to put up with unresolved support queries and Hiver bugs that are blamed on Google

“Support is slow. The replies are there, but they are rarely able to solve the problems. Usually the bugs get blamed on Google. Or we are asked to recreate it showing video, screenshots, etc. Unfortunately we don't have time to help troubleshoot, all we can do is describe our issues.”

People who use Hiver say it's “not intuitive for scalability”

This is why customers choose Helpwise over Hiver

This is why customers choose Helpwise over Hiver
Hiver works on top of Gmail only

With Hiver, you can manage Gmail conversations only. This means, Hiver can't build any 3rd party integrations. You will need to build complicated zaps using Zapier to integrate your CRMs and other tools.

Helpwise is channel independent

Helpwise allows you to connect multiple channels like Gmail, Outlook, Social media, Live Chat, Whatsapp, SMS & more to its platform. You can connect your CRM using our native integrations which sync data both ways.

Hiver forces you to reply using your personal email

You can only use your personal email to reply on a conversation thread. And when you do, your reply is shared with everyone who is on that thread. This means, you can't reply to the customer privately.

Helpwise gives you the freedom to choose how you want to reply

You can choose to either move the conversation from the shared inbox to your private inbox to reply privately or you can set up exclusive From names for your shared inbox Email ID.

Spend time providing support and not on getting support
Switch hard work with smart work
Hiver makes you do the hard work

If an agent is unavailable, Hiver doesn't automatically distribute and assign their work to other agents. You have to assign it to them and then manually tell them to assign it back to you to complete the work.

Helpwise does the hard work

Helpwise does the heavy lifting for your team and automatically reassigns queries from unavailable agents to available agents so that your customer isn't left in the dark waiting for a response.

Simple pricing plans that stick with you forever

No need to worry about random price changes to your plan. Once you select a plan, the pricing will stay the same even if we change or introduce new plans.
