And why exactly is Hiver the top Google
Groups alternative?

Incredibly easy to use

Hiver helps you manage Google Groups from Gmail. Your team does not have to switch to an unfamiliar interface. No training to get started — no learning brand-new terminologies. Using Hiver is a breeze for anyone comfortable with Gmail.

We tried Google Groups and it did not work very well. We didn't want our team to spend time on training. It was really cool that we found Hiver. I am so excited that it works right from Gmail.

Prior to Hiver, we used Google Groups and we’d have to constantly tell each other “hey, I start working here, and you take it from there.” Hiver ensures emails arrive at one place and are clearly assigned to people — we have cut down on the confusion that way.

No more missed emails

With Hiver, building ownership for emails is easy. You can assign every email to a team member without Cc’s or forwards. Your team always knows what they have to work on. This way, you’ll address every email - and nothing falls through the cracks.

In-depth reporting

With Hiver, you get insights into how your team has been engaging via email, and how happy customers are with your support - without even stepping outside Gmail. Track every aspect of individual performance, including overall workload, response, and resolution times, among others.

Since we started using Hiver to manage customer queries, I’ve seen a huge uptick in the efficiency levels of our staff.
