In my opinion, it’s got to be ProProfs Live Chat plugin.

It’s just been a while since we started using the plugin on our WordPress website. We switched from Intercom since it started to burn a hole in our pockets. And the last thing we wanted was to shed cash during a pandemic crisis.

After a lot of research, we decided to settle on ProProfs Chat in April.

And I know it’s just been two months. But I have to say the brand has always been considerate of our needs and even customized the essentials package on the basis of our requirements. Besides the awesome customer service, there were other reasons to move to this tool.

  • Met our feature expectations

We are a small team that needed a holistic solution for our customer support process. Luckily ProProfs Chat plugin allows us to do exactly that.

The essential plan not only covers the features we need but also helps us integrate their native apps like ProProfs Help Desk, ProProfs Knowledge Base, and ProProfs Survey Maker. In short, we could create our support suite without investing much in the process and give our customers more platforms to reach us out.

  • Supports a faster version of a mobile app

As we all went into lockdown, we all knew that working from home is going to be a challenge for all of us. If anything, my team and I never had the experience to have worked from home. So it was kind of tough for us. But that’s where the ProProfs Chat mobile app worked for us.

I specifically told my employees to not sit in one place and walk for a few minutes and take short breaks. However, my support team finds that difficult to do since customers keep on visiting the site, and in case someone does get stuck on a page for long we need to initiate a chat. Except, the use of ProProfs Live Chat mobile app resolved that issue for us. Now operators can walk, sit, and still reply to customers via the app no matter where they are.

But in case you want more options to choose from, then you can refer to the list of best live chat plugin for WordPress website.

You’ll come across different tools such as:

  • LiveChat Inc

  • Tidio Live Chat

  • Olark

  • Zendesk Chat

  • Comm100

And more. What’s more, you’ll see a full-fledged comparison on all the tools and what makes one better from the others. That’s how we arrived at the decision for ProProfs Chat.
