Messaging

Intercom

Intercom  is a tool that will allow you to build messaging tools without having to write a single line of code. It is a fan favorite among no-code platforms because of how easy to learn it is. Intercom has templates available to help you build messaging tools for the following industries: banking & financial services, education & training, healthcare & medical, information & communication technology, marketing & communications, sales, and trades & services.

Intercom  Integrations and Plugins


On the API side of things, you’ll find that Intercom  connects with various tools such as

  • Whatsapp
  • Salesforce
  • Marketo


Benefits

  • The synchronization with third-party applications such as SalesForce or Jira, and of course the visualization is becoming cleaner and easier to use every time
  • The way the UX is well done facilitates the onboarding of new employees
  • Intercom is fantastic for both a lead generation tool and customer support tool
  • keyboard-only navigation on Intercom that makes workflows much faster
  • Native dark mode
  • Easy to understand and operate

Drawbacks

Its drawbacks, on the other hand, are these:

  • Limited options to manage multi-step conversations
  • Response time of the support team
  • The lack of a dashboard for creating reports in a more advanced way
  • Some features are not so clear on how to use them
  • High cost per chunk of customers for the tools individually
  • Not much room for improvement
  • Other sections (Reports,Contacts, etc.) still do not have dark mode, which is okay, since they're not used as much, but it would be perfect to get DM there as well
