About Kustomer

Kustomer unifies communication across every channel (social, chat, email, SMS, voice) within the platform to avoid agent collision and customer frustration. Kustomer's powerful intelligent automation capabilities eliminate tedious manual tasks that saves you time and money.

    I love that Kustomer is so sleek and well-designed. It isn't clunky, or hard to use. It's really streamlined. The reporting is A+, it's very in-depth for not just the customers but also your team. It works really well in tracking team performance and productivity, as well.

    Pros

    I love the VERY in-depth reporting! No other HelpDesk or CRM has such thorough reporting. Having full visibility of the customer insights, help with retention and growth!

    Cons

    It's on the expensive side. They only take on companies that can purchase 8+ seats, so it's not suitable for smaller businesses.

    Reasons for Choosing Kustomer

    ZenDesk was incredibly clunky! The reporting was separate, it was not user-friendly, and the design was very dated.

    Overall it's a great tool for our customer support and in-app chat use case. They are generally responsive to
    issues that we have with the tool. Their SDKs leave a bit to be desired though.

    Pros

    Kustomer is a great tool for customer support and chat interaction. We were previously using Intercom but felt left behind as they started to focus more on being an inbound sales tool. Kustomer allows is highly configurable in terms of features/functions and in its integration with outside tools.

    Cons

    The web interface has a bit of a learning curve as it's not the most intuitive UI. Additionally, their SDKs can be difficult to integrate due to poor documentation, unusual integration patterns. Their iOS SDK is written in Objective-C which is quite dated at this point.

    Alternatives Considered

    Freshdesk, Freshchat, and Zendesk Suite

    Reasons for Choosing Kustomer

    Intercom seemed to be more focused on supporting the inbound sales use case for their product. Additionally, we wanted to be able to configure workflows into our support tool which Intercom did not support.

    Reasons for Switching to Kustomer

    Kustomer was the closest to our existing solution. The company seemed to be the most focused on product development of any of the other vendors we looked at.

    Its good tool as compared to other but they need good documentation that is easy to understand and learn about all the features.

    Pros

    I used it for customer service and help desk. I considered this tool after some analysis of big brands available in market. I would say the result were good and it helped us improving our help desk requirement. Conversation system is easy too.

    Cons

    Took some time to learn everything about this tool. My colleagues faced difficulty at initial stage but they grasped it after some time. Report export is slow.

    I think that Kustomer is one of the best softwares used for customer service

    Reviewed on 10/10/2022

    Pros

    How easy is it to use to help Customers either through calls emails or chats and that we can integrate it with too many different softwares to help the customers quickly with their inquiries

    Cons

    that it sometimes takes time for the report exported to be sent to your email and sometimes I have to export it again as it may not arrive.

    Intuitive, Easily Customizable, Kustomer has been a great solution for our company.

    Reviewed on 03/12/2021

    Pros

    With Kustomer, personalization and customization is incredibly easy. Overnight we were able to set up chatbots, FAQ pages, contact forms, and other features we had been relying on our engineering team to create for us with our previous CRM platform. The team loves how tickets are centered around the customer so we have a full picture every time we need to help someone.

    Cons

    Filters for new searches can be a bit tricky to set up to ensure that you're not missing any customer communications. Reporting can also be a bit tricky to set up as there are a lot of parameters to filter through.
