Intercom has so many bells and whistles..

You spend countless hours just figuring out the platform. You pay unreasonably high subscription fees that keep changing randomly. For a company that prides itself on building long-lasting customer relationships, they provide a poor customer service.

"Nice full-featured inbox management tool - loaded with features!"

I like that Helpwise really combines the most important customer communication tools into one package. It really is a full-featured tool to compete with Intercom.

"Great product with amazing support"

Customer support team is super helpful and caring. They are great listeners. You share feedback and they take quick action on it. Never experienced such a great customer support from any product.

Ever feel like big software companies try to trick you into paying more for shitty software?

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.

Have to deal with shady sales practices from Intercom

“The pricing is not transparent at all, difficult to understand, and engineered to trick you. They attracted us with their "Starter" plan, which was a bit more expenive than our existing service. At some point during our migration, we discovered we might need an additional feature that is only available in their next tier, called "Conversational Support". To our surprise, this would multiply our monthly bill by a factor of *5*, and require us to go to a yearly engagement. “

Deal with incredibly poor service standards

“Before the pricing complaints, let me just say the customer support intercom offers is AWFUL. We've lost a not insignificant amount of revenue and productivity due to intercom's lack of responsiveness. It drives me bananas how I see "we'll get back to you in a few hours" and then I get a response 5 or 6 days later. It's truly unbelievable.”

Are unable to provide customer support and have to end up receiving untiemly support from Intercom

“It is very hard to get in touch with support or get an answer to any questions. You would think a company designed to offer support software would have decent support... that is not the case. Currently, I've been waiting for a response to a single question for a full week, and I've followed up twice. Very frustrating.”

People who use Intercom say their “pricing is deliberately designed to trick users”

This is why customers choose Helpwise over Intercom

Service more customers instead of being limited by platform incapabilities
intercom-chat-social
Intercom allows you to manage chat, and social conversations only

A modern & successful business has a lot more customer touchpoints than just 2-3 channels. With Intercom, you're only limited to live chat and socials, you can't manage emails, etc.

Manage Email, SMS, Chat, Socials, Whatsapp & more with Helpwise

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.

intercompayfeatures
Intercom forces you to pay for basic features by adding add-ons

Basic features like analytics, rules, round-robin conversation delegation, and more are available on their most expensive plans and require you to upgrade every time you hit the usage limits

intercom-shady
Helpwise doesn't do shady practices when it comes to pricing

Productivity features shouldn't be limited by usage and the user shouldn't have to upgrade every time. Our pricing plans are built to help you scale so that it doesn't hit your productivity or your wallet.

Get what you pay for, no false promises
Switch hard work with smart work
intercomsupport
Intercom gives a not-so-personalized support

Since intercom is a large company, their customers feel like they’re not valued enough to be given personalized support by the intercom team.

intercom-customer-feel
Helpwise makes each customer feel like they’re the one

Helpwise is built on each customer’s feedback and we value every customer equally which is why we provide personalized support to each of our users.
