ROI positive in 3 months

If your organization uses Google Workspace, consider using Hiver over a more complex software like Zendesk, which requires you to learn a new interface. Hiver is the best decision we ever made. It turned ROI positive for us within the first three months.

Hiver > Zendesk

Zendesk was expensive, clunky, and had features we just didn't need. We had a lot of feedback from customers about being treated 'like a number'. Hiver helps us have natural conversations with customers. It's so much better than the 'here's yourticket number-stand in line' model we had before.

Great tool in the fight against email noise

We weren't comfortable with Zendesk because of its unfamiliar Ul. Zendesk being a ticketing system turns emails into tickets. Hiver was a great opportunity to leverage the familiarity of Gmail's Ul. It has been a great tool in our fight against email noise and duplication of effort.

Hiver > all helpdesks

We tried Zendesk, Salesforce, and pretty much everything that's out there. They were all unfamiliar and complicated. But Hiver being right inside Gmail makes it a breeze to work with.
