LiveAgent is very reliable, and I never had any bad experience with them, especially when it comes to customer service.

I’m Jeroen van Gils, Founder and CEO of, a website dedicated to LiFi technology. Here’s the best Help Desk Software that my company is currently using. LiveAgent. When we talk about the best Help Desk Software, self-service or ticket management capability should not be the only main factors to consider. More than anything else, fast and real-time live chat should be your top priority. And this is exactly what you’ll get with LiveAgent. Aside from the fact that they boast themselves to have the fastest live chat widget on the market, they’ll spoil you more with a no credit card and no contract 14-day free trial. This way you’ll never have a reason not to try their awesome help desk software. I’ve been running a business for a decade now and I only tried two help desk software. The first one lasted only one contract, which is two years. Then when I moved to use LiveAgent, I was amazed not only with their unmatched onboarding process but with the fact that I was able to integrate it with Slack. With it, not only that I’m being alerted in real-time with every new ticket received but with every action made on that ticket too, from creation to closing

LiveAgent is 24/7 available and very easy to use. Live chat, phone calls, voicemail and e-mail can be all done in one program. Price is very affordable for what you're getting. Integration with Whatsapp, Instagram and LinkedIn is what I would like to see very much. The app is also a bit outdated and not all features of LiveAgent are on it. Great software. Very easy to use and everything you need, you can find in one dashboard. Everyone from LiveAgent is right here for you in case you need help. Inegrations go fast.

Hello Milica, thanks a lot for your honest feedback! We are happy to have you with us and to see that you know that our support team is here for you 24/7! :) Unfortunately, we do not have a WhatsApp and LinkedIn integration as of now, but we do have an Instagram integration! Feel free to contact our support team for more info! The mobile apps are also planned to be rebuilt completely but we do not have any ETA yet. We'll definitely make sure that everyone knows once it is out :)

Great service/software

Lots of options and flexibility for customization to suit your organization's individual needs. This is great because the system can work for both large or small organizations with a variety of goals and methods of tracking data.

We have been using Live Agent for about 6 months now and it has underlined our decision to switch from our previous chat solution. Packed full of customisable features, Live Agent has provided a much richer chat experience for visitors to our website, resulting in greater conversion to qualified sales leads. The additional bonus has been the load speed of the chat widget. This is rated best on the market (part of our reason to switching to Live Agent) and now sees our website score a perfect 100/100 for site loading speed.

It's simplicity and convenience to use. Customers can provide instant feedback for the Agent they interacted with, the software can be customized as per the requirement, Tickets can be organized and grouped as per departments, a great interface for admin to review the performance of other agents. Overall it's been a good experience.
