We want to make the decision as simple as possible, so we’ve put together some info that’ll help you decide if Keeping™ is for you and compare our customer support tool to HelpScout, including features, customer experiences, pricing etc.

Helpscout vs Keeping™ as an alternative

Alternative to HelpScout

– You can keep using your current mailbox

Your customers already send you emails and you should not be forced to move your entire support emails to an external help desk such as HelpScout.

Keeping™ adds help desk functionalities you need directly inside your current mailbox. It’s a customer support tool that integrates within Gmail/Google Apps.

It essentially turns any Gmail/Google Apps account into a shared mailbox built for teams. It allows your team to manage customers support more efficiently directly from their current email accounts without having to use an external help desk.

– Your data is never held ‘hostage’

UnlikeHelpScout, Keeping™ doesn’t lock you into being forced to using its service if you want access past data and messages.

With Keeping™ the conversations you have with your customers always remain inside your current email accounts. If you ever decide to stop using our service, you’ll never loose any single email ever exchanged.

HelpScout on the other hand ‘holds your data hostage’ and past conversations are not easily exportable back to your email accounts if you ever decide to stop using HelpScout.

– Keeping™ is easier to use than HelpScout

HelpScout is a good solution but offers many features which may suit larger customers but for the majority of small to medium businesses these actually create more of a friction and problem as it makes using their service more complex and harder to train new staff.

Because Keeping™ works inside the same Gmail interface you love there is no tough learning curve and no need to spend time training your team.

Everything you love about Gmail continues to work: search, filters, contacts etc.

– It’s cheaper than HelpScout

Keeping™ costs a fraction of whatHelpScout costs as we do not charge on a per user basis. That makes us better priced for companies of all sizes. On average our customers save over 500$ per year.

At Keeping™ we have a straightforward and affordable pricing with an Unlimited plan which is capped so that you can grow without having to worry about additional costs as you start adding agents and mailboxes.

Here are some testimonials from current customers.

Keeping™ has helped us improve response time. Everything works within the Gmail interface and their support team has been fantastic.

Keeping™ addresses the frustrations we had with Google groups and allows us to manage customer email simply and effectively. The support is great too!
