Testimonials

We recently switched to LiveHelpNow for our email, chat and knowledge base service. We were immediately impressed by two things: One, how much out-of-the-box functionality they provide for such a reasonable price and two, how eager they are to help. The package is powerful, extensible, easy to use and customizable and the staff are smart, friendly and professional.

Our business has been using live help now for approximately 6 months now. I have seen other businesses use Chat on their websites and wanted to give it a try. We are so impressed with how simple it was to install within our website and the amount of information available.
