For how long have I used the solution?

3.5 years

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

It took some time to discover the true capabilities of LiveChat. Although it's simple to get setup and running, in order to achieve what we have it took some time trialling different options and reviewing the API's. Any issues were quickly resolved through their live chat support.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

LiveChat went through a stage of being targeted with DDoS attacks. Communications from them were very good and we were kept updated.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

None at all. We've scaled quite dramatically over the years and encountered no issues. We've just needed to adjust and change how we work.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Best in the business! If they can't help there and then they will log a ticket and have someone more experienced look into it.

Technical Support:

Great. They designed and built LiveChat in house and so are always able to solve any issues quickly and efficiently.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had researched various different solutions before choosing LiveChat but it was the first solution we were properly committed to.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was very easy and intuitive. It's only when you're looking into more advanced setup did it become more complex.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented live chat in-house and have continued to do so for many other businesses, learning a lot along the way.

What was our ROI?

Some of the ROI's we've achieved for clients can be seen on our website, Results have been incredibly positive.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

You can easily scale up and down the number of seats you need and only be billed pro-rata which is perfect for keeping control of costs and scaling as required.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, various other options available on the market at the time. Olark, Zopim, Live Person etc. LiveChat's support was second to none.
