Frequently asked questions

Looking for some answers? Browse through the most frequently asked questions about our help desk software for startups.

What is help desk software for startups?

Help desk software for startups is a help desk solution that aims to provide the right types of tools, features, services, and pricing models for startup businesses. In general, help desk software for startups works the same way as other regular software solutions, but they might differ in available features and pricing.

What are the benefits of using help desk software for startups?

The main benefit is that your customer communication will become more efficient. Help desk software is known for its productivity features that help you communicate faster, automate many tasks, and streamline all of your communication from every channel into one place so you can stay on top of every customer message.

What is the best help desk software for startups?

LiveAgent is affordable, scalable, and provides every important tool for any type of business - including startups. Its multi-channel capabilities can handle email conversations, live chat messaging, call center connections, and social media management, as well as help you build your own customer portal with a knowledge base and other features. LiveAgent can therefore offer everything necessary for a startup business to manage its customer support without going over budget.

Do startups need help desk software?

Not every startup can benefit from help desk software. Some businesses can do well without dedicated help desk software. That’s why it’s important to consider how often you need to engage with your customers in online or phone communication and what types of customer communication channels you need to cover. However, even businesses that handle only basic customer communication can benefit from LiveAgent’s free plan, which includes basic features that help you manage customer emails more efficiently.

How much does help desk software for startups cost?

LiveAgent has affordable pricing plans that start from $9 per user per month. You can choose more advanced plans as you scale up your business and gain more revenue. However, if you’re in a tight spot, you can always count on the free LiveAgent plan that provides basic help desk features. There are no hidden fees, and we won’t forcibly push you into upgrading to a paid plan.

What are the essential features of good help desk software for startups?

The essential features are email inbox integration and a ticketing system that gathers all communication from your email inbox (or other channels!) and turns them into tickets. Tickets can be distributed between support agents, solved, tagged, or otherwise managed. You won’t find these features in a basic inbox.

Happy customers are the best customers​

We offer concierge migration services from most of the popular help desk solutions on the market.
