Fed up with your webmail?

It’s safe to say that Gmail is one of the most popular and widely used email services. We’ve all grown accustomed to the free storage, the un-send button as well as the additional useful features such as snooze, tags, or folders. We’d go as far to say that Gmail is the perfect email solution for individuals. It keeps everything pristine and organized.

However, when it comes to using Gmail for business – specifically for customer support, there are a few limitations. Unfortunately, Gmail does not support a universal inbox with multichannel integrations, or a multi-agent dashboard overview. These are both essential features in customer service. If you’re looking for a Gmail alternative for your support department, LiveAgent might be the right solution for you.

Harness the power of a universal inbox

The ideal customer service software should be transparent and easily accessible for all agents in your department. It should support multichannel integrations and provide additional help-desk features such as automation. The universal inbox by LiveAgent does just that.

LiveAgent’s universal inbox is a smarter version of your current email inbox. It enables you to send and receive messages from multiple channels such as email, live chat, social media, or even voice and video calls. It eliminates the need for account sharing and device monitoring. All new tickets are automatically pushed into the LiveAgent dashboard and can be viewed and answered by all agents.

The universal inbox allows you to add tags, reminders, internal notes, automate tickets to departments or specific agents and much more. If you’re looking for a Gmail alternative for your business, consider LiveAgent.

Utilize the hybrid ticketing stream

If you’re looking for a Gmail alternative for your business, consider LiveAgent. LiveAgent utilizes the hybrid ticket stream which is an essential feature in customer support because it increases agent productivity. The hybrid ticket stream makes all tickets look the same regardless of the communication channel they were received from. The ticket stream allows you to follow your customers journey through different channels but always stay in the same hybrid ticket. In this way, you have all the important information about your customers and their issues right at your fingertips.

Automate tasks to save time

Automation is an essential feature for customer support because it saves a lot of time. It allows you to automate ordinary tasks, create workflows or unique automation rules according to your business needs.

For example, automation rules can automatically assign tickets (at any stage) to individual agents or departments. All you have to do is choose a “trigger” and the rule will be executed. In LiveAgent, automation rules can be based on any ticket parameter, event or time condition.

    “It’s so rich in functions and beat my 5-year zendesk subscription. So I switched. Very good value for me as small business owner.” Albert

  • See why companies switch to LiveAgent

    I first tried out Zendesk but after hours of configuration and understanding the price model i realized that it was not for me. Instead I started using LiveAgent and must say I’m so far very satisfied. The system got exactly the right amount of configuration that I want and I have not yet found something that is not possible to do. The support itself is great and usually answer your questions in a couple of minutes.” Erik

    “We moved to LiveAgent from ZenDesk… and wouldn’t go back… It’s amazingly affordable pricing and always helpful support team who are their to help us 24×7. Secondly, the advanced level of automation which has literally replaced our need for Zapier as there’s good amount of integrations. Plus they also give so many alias emails to connect that too very easily.” Aaron

    “I used ZenDesk for years and I was tired of these “ticket-style” emails and that I can’t attach files to my emails, only send links. What I like in LiveAgent: it sends emails (not tickets), I can attach files, organize the flow of emails easier than in ZenDesk, can chat and manage emails from the same window. Also, LiveAgent supports spreadsheets in its emails and has a great support team.” Vlad

The functionality is awesome: contact forms, live chat, databases, integration with social networks – all in one service and all these modules are well thought out and competently interact with each other. I liked that the service works stably even on mobile platforms (after ZenDesk this is a huge plus for us).” Olga
