  • Reasons 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

Also, LiveAgent supports spreadsheets in its emails and has a great support team.” Vlad
