Smith.ai Live Chat starts with incredible technology — our sophisticated platform increases the speed and accuracy of our agents. We hire incredible people — our agents are obsessed with good customer service and go through a rigorous training process. The end product is live chat staffed by people who can quickly answer questions, qualify leads, book appointments, and send transcripts and lead contact info via email, SMS, or directly to your CRM.
SupportNinja doesn’t provide any technology, and they are vague about their services. Outsourced live chat definitely shouldn’t feel outsourced; it should be an extension of your office. With a limit on the platforms they’ll use, no translation services, no free trial, and an unknown onboarding process, you’ll end up shelling out for unknown quality. In a worst case scenario, their chat agents are confusing and your clients call you to complain.
Speaking of prices, SupportNinja makes no mention of setup costs, pricing models, monthly charges, or hourly rates on their website. Obviously, it’s hard to compare the price of their services to Smith.ai. But their lack of transparency is an indicator of what it might be like to work with them. Smith.ai is very transparent about our affordable pricing. Plus, we have a 20-chat / 14-day free trial, no setup fees, month-to-month contracts, and absolutely no hidden fees, ever!
For predictable and transparent pricing, efficient and friendly agents, happier clients, better customer service, and fewer phone interruptions, businesses prefer Smith.ai Live Chat over SupportNinja.
“Great customer care and functionality. I love using Smith.ai. They do such a great job in following instructions on how I'd like my cases handled. I especially love the fact that I get email transcripts of all chats. I have never had incorrect information obtained (contact info) from any potential clients by Smith.ai. They are very detail oriented!”
"Smith allows us to converse with website visitors and turn them into potential clients. They've made it easier for us to be there at all times, even when we're not. We've worked with other vendors in the past and have found Smith.ai among the easiest to use. They're very responsive, they communicate well, and serve as our front lines for client communications."
“Simple way to start a great client experience. There are a lot of Chat options available, but this was a no brainer for us because of our great experience with Smith.ai as a company. Everything they do is focused on simplicity. Stuff just works. They make everything easy and have focused on hiring great people, which is evident by the way they treat us as a customer and the people that they chat with on our behalf.”
“Love Smith.ai Chat! There is no way that I could staff a feature like that in house with my small business. Smith.ai makes the chat feature available around the clock. I am a lawyer and this feature is great for clients who are nervous or shy about making that initial phone call, or who are up thinking about the problem that they need help with outside of business hours. The Smith.ai Website Chat also integrates perfectly with my CRM/case management software. It has really been a boost to my business. I have tried other companies. Smith.ai is the best!”
